My Story:

My husband and I have been married for 18 years. We have 4 beautiful children, most of which are now grown and out on their own. Our youngest daughter, 17, lives at home with us. My husband is a store manager for a large pool supply company. He has graciously taken on the full time role of provider as I have struggled with health issues for many years now. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Spinal Stenosis, Osteoarthritis, and several herniated discs which has left me unable to work. While I have applied for disability, the process can be a bit daunting and lengthy.

I have always believed we are never given more than we can handle but August and September has been one hurdle after another. We have one vehicle to get back and forth to doctor appointments, and overall household transportation. It began with the battery going, so we replaced the battery then less then a week later the transmission completely went. We had no choice but to put money down on another vehicle. This came several days before needing to prepare for hurricane Dorian. During the whirlwind of the last few weeks, our middle daughter who is pregnant with her first child began having complications. We have been taking her back and forth to specialists and hospital stays as she nor her husband drive. We are taking things one day at a time and I have reached out to every resource available in my area but we never got any help from them. We truly need help from Modest Needs for our rent payment for this month. We have nowhere else to turn.

By receiving funding, we would be able to get back on track financially. We are prepared now for any more hurricanes that may pose a threat. We would be able to continue to be the rock our family needs right now. We will be able to continue taking our daughter to appointments while she goes through pregnancy complications, to assist my husbands elderly parents in their cancer treatment journeys. Your help would be the hand that picks us up off the ground, brushes off the dirt and says �You got this!�
