I'm 80 & Fighting Cancer. My Wife Still Works. Pleae Help Us Fix Our Car So We Can Stay Independent

My Story:

My wife and I have been married for more than 50 years. We're an older couple. I'm 80 this year and a veteran, and my wife wouldn't want me to tell you her age.

We've always been hard workers and never really retired. This is good because we don't have a lot of savings. We were doing just fine until this spring, when I was diagnosed with cancer. Since then, I've been in treatment and haven't been able to work. My wife has been the only person working and so the amount of money we have is down at the same time that we have these extra medical expenses. Still, we've always been frugal and up until recently, we've been making it.

We have just one car that my wife uses to get to work and to drive me to and from my chemotherapy. Last week, it broke down. We had an estimate done, and it'll take us months to save up the money to get that car fixed. In the meantime, I can't get to my cancer treatments, and my wife won't be able to get to work. If that happens, we'll lose our supplemental insurance and we won't be able to afford my treatment, and I'm not ready to leave this world just yet. I love my wife too much. Our kids can't help us and we can't find another program that can fix cars, so would you please help us to pay for this car repair? We'll pay you back as fast as we can, but without your help, I don't know how we're going to afford this. We've made it our whole life without having to ask for help and I feel bad that we have to ask for it now, but if you can help us we would never be able to thank you enough. Thank you kind people.
