This person has left the following thank you note:

User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeHi, My name is Misty. I can't thank the Modest Needs donors enough on their help. As a woman that has been through domestic abuse, serious illness and loss of a job I was at a point that I thought everything was over for me. I was going to get evicted and have no place to live but with your support I feel like I can breath again and all will be a lot better for me. I spent months in and out of the hospital due to a serious medical condition that caused me to not be able to work. I was severely depressed and had no idea where to turn. You guys have helped me more than anything in getting things back to working order for me. I am no longer going to be evicted. Thank you so much again!!!!



Missed Work Due to Hospitalization, Please Help With Rent

My Story:

I am a single woman that has a beautiful 24 year old daughter (who now lives on her own). I moved to Illinois but I am originally from Texas. I have no other family here other than my daughter. I am active and like to do what I can to help people whenever I can. I had a great job working in an Emergency Room of a number one Trauma Center and loved it.

Unfortunately I am at a point where I need help myself. I was in an abusive committed relationship where we shared financial expenses. After I was finally able to get away, I was able to move to my own apartment and pay all of my expenses myself. I felt great about myself which I hadn�t for a long time. I got very ill and was unable to work for a while. While I was working I ended up hospitalized several times and my pay slowly diminished due to the time I was off for illness. I have a deficiency that would diminish my potassium and magnesium to the point that I was unable to walk and they were afraid I would have a heart attack. That has since been rectified and I am able to work again. I now need Modest Needs help for paying one month rent. I am unable to get the funds since I missed the work and had to cover the medical bills that. I faced after the hospitalization.

It would mean a world to me to get a helping hand during hard times like this. I am fearing to lose my home and worsen my medical condition by stressing. Please help.
