User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeMy wife and I are utterly speechless. When we heard about Modest Needs, we knew going into it that our situation did not compare to the struggles of others out there. Thank you so much for funding this for us. While we managed to get some funding for my initial procedure, the results have led to the need for more tests involving my gallbladder. I was unable to move forward with these less expensive tests due to not having paid the doctor's office in full. Now, I can. I can finally get some answers, thanks to you. From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank you for this gracious aid. It's even more clear to us now that God answers prayers and we are humbled to have had them answered through you. We will remember this, and become donors ourselves when we are past this struggle. God Bless You All, Ryan & Brittany

My Medical Bills are Threatening to Bankrupt My Family Soon. Please Help Us!

My Story:

I'm a married father of two young children, a 7-year old girl and a 2-year old boy. My daughter is excelling in 2nd grade and is as bright as can be. She recently coerced me into recording video so she can make a YouTube channel. My son is in his fully-fledged terrible two's and my wife works hard as a stay at home mother while doubling as a teacher for our home-schooled 2nd grader.

We were recently blessed earlier this year with a job offer that we had prayed and prayed to come true. I had finished college last July and finally landed a job as an engineer. We knew that between the cost of health insurance and old college debts that it would be tight for another year or two, but we didn't expect my health to hit the dirt. Two months in to working, I began experiencing health issues and had to begin a long process of seeing multiple specialists and ruling out problems. I finally landed a procedure, but the cost even after the deductible is steep. Having to pay this so I can continue with my follow ups for continued treatment is unfortunate. We have already built up a lot in terms of medical deductible costs for previous treatment, but to finally be treated for my conditions I need to move past this bill. Hopefully, my medical issues will be resolved after the treatment, but until then, I am worried we will continue to struggle financially. We desperately need help paying my medical bills in order to get back on track.

If my health continues to improve, which I have been reassured it is by two doctors, I will no longer have surprise expenses such as this that send us into a deficit month after month. We have been grateful to God for giving me this job as an engineer and for the opportunity to finally be good stewards of an income we didn't have before. It was hard to even put together this application. We hate asking people for help. We know our problem isn't even close to some that others are experiencing in the tough time. God bless any who help us. It is our mission to become the ones who help and guide others after we get out of this financial rut in our lives.
