Widow Needs Your Help to Keep the Lights On

My Story:

I am a widowed woman that lives alone and I work in a small hospital as a housekeeper. I have 8 grand kids that i love. I would pick up on my weekends off to spend time with them as much as possible- because I know life is short and we need to enjoy life.

I'm in financial need because my husband past away last year on February 14th due to cancer. He had no life insurance. I had to pay for the funeral cost out of pocket to lay him to rest. The medical bills and other bills started coming in I could not keep up, and then I had to to have a total knee replacement in September of last year. All of these extra costs have caused me to fall behind. I really need your help with my power bill.

I am so afraid it will get turned off this winter. If I get this funding it will make my life easier and not be so stressed about it. LAST YEAR WAS THE WORST YEAR OF MY LIFE. I just need to feel like I can go on without having to worry about how I'm going to pay this bill. This will give me some relief and feel better about life knowing there's people that care. Thank you so much, I will never forget receiving this assistance.
