Retired Teacher Needs Help With Mortgage After Expensive Car Repairs

My Story:

I am a retired teacher, having had a successful career teaching general education and diverse learners, grade K-12. I recently relocated to South Carolina with my two dogs. I also volunteer and am on the board of an equine therapy organization. I enjoy walking the dogs, exploring my new state and helping out at the stable.

I had to leave my home due to a dear family member's death and issues with the estate. I have had many unexpected costs due to moving and purchasing a home. I most recently have had three very large repair expenses; a new motor for the HVAC and two pricey car repairs. These vital repairs were necessary but not within my budget so I fell behind. I need your help with my mortgage payment. This will allow me to get back on track in paying all my necessary monthly bills.

I have some health conditions that are exacerbated by the stress I deal with trying to satisfy all my necessary monthly bills. I would be so grateful and appreciative of this assistance. It would be a huge relief to receive this funding. I thank you in advance for any help you are able to give.
