Recovering From Surgery; Please Keep Lights On For Parents of Two

My Story:

I am a stay at home mom of 2 boys. My 7 year old is autistic, has elopement issues, and also has anxiety and ADHD. He requires a high level of care. My husband has been employed for 5 years at his job, and works extremely hard. We love to spend time together as a family in our free time.

I recently had a major surgery, and I was unable to care for my boys myself. My husband had to take off work, which was unpaid. This caused us to fall behind on some bills and we need our help. We have had to decide which bills to pay, while others have continued to mount. While in pain, this has been a huge amount of added stress, along with having to be separated from my son, who has no comprehension of personal boundaries. I fear we would have our electricity shut off, and we need your help to keep it on.

It would be a huge sense of relief for us, and take off a huge amount of the added stress. We will most definitely pay it forward when we are able. This assistance is exactly what we need to propel us out of this crisis and back to self-sufficient.
