I'm a Single Mother Who was Diagnosed with a Lung Disease. I Need Help with My Rent Please!

My Story:

I am a single mother with two wonderful daughters. My oldest is in college, and my youngest is a senior in high school who is preparing to go to college next year. My daughters and I love to spend time together outdoors doing different activities.

Recently, I was diagnosed with restrictive lung disease, and I have had to stay indoors due to the Coronavirus pandemic. I was also furloughed from my job recently, which has made it difficult to make ends meet financially. I have also had a hard time finding work again because of my disease. I have not been able to secure disability yet, but I am hopeful I will be able to do that soon. In the meantime, I am struggling to pay for even our basic necessities. So far, I have fallen behind on my rent and electric bills, so I am worried that I will be evicted or lose service soon. I desperately need your help with these bills until I can find a way to get back on track.

My landlord is a recently widowed woman, so I do not want to cause her any more hardship than she has already endured, and your help would ensure that I do not. Also, it would buy me the time that I need to continue to try to find a job that suits my needs or to obtain disability benefits. My daughters and I would be so grateful for your support, and it would help us get back to a place where we can return the favor. Thank you so much for considering us for your donation.
