This person has left the following thank you note:
my family and i would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all those who decided to help our family. we didn't think we were going to get any help as most agencies don't consider a man who has a job and is trying to keep his family secure but not able to actually get to work due to care giving they hear job and say you should be able to manage even without understanding exactly what care giving is so again thanks to all those who assisted us.
We're a Family of Four. My Wife has Terminal Cancer. Please Help with Rent So I Can Be With Her.
I'm a married father of 2 children. My wife was diagnosed with cervical cancer on the first of this year. My daughter is a schizophrenic and I had to take a leave of absence to take care of them. Then, my wife's cancer metastasized into terminal cancer and I've been working off and on since then having to take multiple days off every week to care for her, the house, my children and our animals.
I have used every available resource we had saved plus we lost our house 3 years ago due to Hurricane Hermine. Being able to pay the bills monthly has become harder and harder due to the required time off to care for my wife. I'm requesting help from Modest Needs for my one month rent, just so we can get back on track and I can continue to care for my wife during this difficult time. The thing is, we've been behind for so long that if we can't pay the rent quickly, we're going to lose our apartment and we don't have anywhere else to go.
It's hard enough knowing that I'm going to lose my wife, and that my children are going to lose their mother. But if I can just keep us in our apartment and be with her and my kids during this time, it would mean more to us than I can express. I feel bad that I have to ask for this help. I've never asked for anything before. But I need to keep her stable so that my wife's environment can be as stable as possible during this final part of her life and you're my only hope. Your help will change my family's life, and make my wife's life better the rest of her life. Thank you if you can help.
