My Mother's Diabetic and our HVAC Broke. The Heat Could Hurt Her Badly. We Need Help!!

My Story:

I am a 46 year old male who enjoys spending time with his sisters and mom. I love education, sports, music and helping others. I am employed full time at Compucom IT in Fort Mill and live with my mom, who has severe diabetes. I'm her caregiver.

Several years ago, while I was in Pharmacy school I became ill and missed a lot of time at work. This put me behind and I wasn't able to catch up with everything. The loans I took out for each year were very high and I relied on credit cards to self support for a majority of expenses. After this, I decided to make a career change and I started working as in IT. I am also working on getting certifications which will someday further my career, but I'm still catching up from that really hard time. I make enough for us to get by but don't have money for anything extra, and right now, we have an emergency. Our HVAC has broken down, and I can't afford to fix it without help of some kind. Because of my mom's diabetes, fixing our HVAC is about more than just keeping cool. For my mom, the heat is actually dangerous and can send her to the hospital, and the last thing we need is extra medical bills!

This funding will help us so much. I will be able to provide a safe environment for my sick mother and take care of her in good living conditions. I really want to get back on my feet and once again feel like I can make a difference in this world. When I do, I will follow the footsteps of other donors and help others.
