Unexpected Medical Leave for Single Mother of 3

My Story:

I am a single mother of 3 children, two boys and a girl. I've been working in the medical field for the past 8 years as a medical assistant. My goal is to become an LVN. I am the sole provider for my children. My first born graduated from high school this year and has begun his first semester of community college. My second born son is in middle school, he enjoys playing baseball and soccer when in season. My daughter is the youngest, she is two years old and boy does she keep us busy.

Unfortunately I had to take a leave of absence from work due to some health issues. On leave, I do not receive my full salary which has now put me behind on some bills. The little money I had saved was used for back to school supplies for my kids. I will be back full time in November, and your help will allow me to keep things afloat. I really need your help with my car payment.

I'm worried that if I fall too behind it could effect everything that I have worked so hard to provide for my children and I. Your help will allow my family to stay on track while we go through the motions of the pay decrease. It's tough being a single mother especially when unexpectedly you need to take some time off work to take care of yourself and still manage or find a way to maintain the household. This will help tremendously for me personally by relieving some stress so I can focus on my health. If granted the help it will have a long-lasting impact on our family, I believe In helping others as you are helping us.
