A Year of Many Medical Bills After 4 Surgeries Could Leave Us Homeless

My Story:

I am a married man, living with my wife and our 16 year old daughter who is a high school sophomore. Our 20 year old twin boys are currently in college. We enjoy spending time together as a family when we can. My wife is fully disabled and has been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, High Blood Pressure, Neck and Back Pain, Mixed Connective Tissue Disorder and a whole list of other ailments. It harder and harder for her to do any physical activity like clean the house. I drive a truck full time to provide for us.

Her medical copays this year have tripled from the year before. To make matters worse, on 10/26 I had to go to the ER and was hospitalized for a week, and off of work for another week. With all the medical bills piling up and time missed from work. we are simply not able to afford our rent. We also received a shut of notice for our electric bill and water bill. We are doing all we can to to stop it and get extensions. We need Modest Needs assistance, so we can keep the roof over our heads.

This funding would allow us to get back on track with our bills and allow us to keep the home for us and our children. It will allow us to focus on our health and not worry about being homeless and in chronic pain. We appreciate any help that you can provide. Thank you so much.
