First I Lost My Mom, Then I Lost My Job, and Now We're About to Lose Our Power. Please Help!

My Story:

I'm a single women whose planning to be married very soon. Until recently, my full time job has been caring for my mother, who lived to be 91 years old. She passed away two months ago, and aside from the grief of losing my mother, I also immediately lost my job. I'm now living with my fiance and am actively looking to join the workforce again. Meanwhile, my fiance works full time and support us. He is my rock and has really been there for me during my grief.

With my fiance being the only one who has been working over the past couple of months, we've been scrimping and scraping, really living paycheck to paycheck. Then one night, in the middle of the night, my husband woke up in the worst pain he said he's ever felt. He went to the hospital, and it turns out he's suffering with a 10.5cm kidney stone. He's now scheduled for surgery (and thank GOD he has insurance), but the copays and time he's lost from work has caused an extra financial strain during what was already the worst time of my life, both personally and financially. And now, on top of everything else, we've just gotten a disconnect notice from the power company. I've called & gotten an extension but to be honest, I don't know what we're going to do. I just don't have the money to pay this bill in time, and if our power is cut off, we'll have to pay a giant deposit with even more money we don't have.

I'm here hoping that someone will please help us pay this power bill. It would take a huge stress off of my fiance and me and give us the chance we need to FINALLY get caught up on all of our bills. To a young couple about to be married, that means so much, and I'll never forget your kindness. Thank you for thinking of us, and I'm sorry if I didn't express things the right way. I'm still going through a lot with the loss of my mom, and this new problem just feels like the last straw. Thank you.
