User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI am writing to you today, along with my fiance, with the deepest gratitude in our hearts. This health crisis has affected countless families around the world and so many are in need in some way. For us, this crisis brought the uncertainty of not being able to afford monthly medication as we do not have insurance and the costs are significant. Finding Modest Needs completely on a whim, we never thought out of so many applicants that WE would receive assistance. It is truly the greatest blessing to know that others are willing to help; even during times of extreme divisiveness and social turmoil. Our biggest fear has been alleviated and the greatest cause of stress has been unloaded from our weary shoulders. We cannot express enough our sincerest thanks to the donors who made funding our application possible and we can't wait to be able to give thanks by helping fund another application, as soon as we can. The world can be a cruel and unpredictable place but love always conquers all. At the end of the day, we are all humans who need to stick together. Thank you again to all of the incredibly selfless and generous dohors- YOU are the good in the world. With much love and warmth, Shannon and Adam

Coronavirus: Young Furloughed Couple Can't Afford CRITICAL Medication

My Story:

I live with my incredible fiance. I'm the Head Bartender at Bend Liquor Lounge and have been there since the bar's inception over 5 years ago. My fiance is a Software Engineer who works from home as a freelancer/contractor. We love kayaking and spending time in nature when we can. I'm an avid cook and baker and we enjoy lounging around, watching movies and munching on my creations. This COVID-19 outbreak has found us both unemployed and uncertain how we will afford our respective monthly medications.

My fiance and I have no transportation right now as the only vehicle we had (and shared) completely broke down and we sold it for parts a couple years ago. Because I am a bartender and my fiance works from home, not having a vehicle had worked out for a while. Now with this COVID-19 outbreak, it has been a huge obstacle for us just getting to the grocery store and doctor appointments. With this current outbreak, we both have no income coming in. My bar was closed and laid off the entire staff a few days ago while all of the current projects my fiance was working on have been postponed indefinitely. We now need Modest Needs help to pay for a medical expense.

This funding will ensure that my fiances respective medical regimens are uninterrupted, which will avoid any of the very serious physical and mental withdrawal symptoms associated with abruptly discontinuing the medication. Experiencing these kinds of symptoms could potentially stop us from being able to continue to work once this outbreak is under control. As most of our main expenses are flexible right now, our medication(s) are our main concern. This assistance will give us the peace of mind to move forward and inspire others to stay positive and stick together right now. Thank you.
