I'm Currently Fighting Brain Cancer. I Missed Work for Treatment and Now, They Want to Take Our Car

My Story:

I am married with 3 beautiful babies. I have a 1 year old that cannot stay still, a 5 year old that loves to dance, and a 7 year old that loves to build. My husband and I both work full time. I work on the full time staff at a local school. But what makes me different from most people is that I have cancer.

I've been fighting cancer for three years and, until recently, we thought it was in remission. Late last year, we found out it had come back in my brain, and I had to take some time of from work to do the chemo and radiation. I'm back in remission now (yay!) but because of the time I missed from work, I'm now behind on my car payment. We're actually two payments behind, and our lender is threatening to repo our car. if that happens, I'll have to quit my job, and my family really, really needs my paycheck for as long as I'm able to work (and we know that probably won't be forever).

Would you please consider helping us to catch up our car payment? Your help would bring us current from all of our bills and allow us to save / plan for a future where it's likely I'll get sick again and will need more time from work. We want to have some savings set aside so that if this happens, we'll be ready for it. Thank you for helping us if you can. It really means a lot to our family. Thank you.
