User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI am extremely grateful for your help and assistance in this time of need. I truly think that there are great people in the world and you have only made that belief more concrete. This assistance will help greatly with a bill that I wasn�t able to afford. I am doing better and have returned to work and able to better afford my bills now. I also don�t have to worry anymore about what is more important to pay as I can now afford all of my obligations. This support is greatly appreciated and has contributed to the wellbeing and confidence of me and my family. Additionally, it has made me more willing to help others less fortunate than myself when it is financially feasible. Again, many thanks to you and everyone else that contributed to my cause, because it is �great� people that make the world a better place.

After Suffering a Stroke, I Need Help with a Phone Bill to Be Able to Get Back to Work!

My Story:

I'm a single mother, and I have raised one amazing 20-year-old daughter. We live together with our three dogs who we absolutely love. Both of us work full-time doing tech support remotely for different companies; however, I have been unable to work since late August after I suffered a stroke, cutting us down to just my daughter's income.

Being down to just one income has made it incredibly difficult to take care of all of our bills. We have gotten pretty far behind on our phone bill, which is essential to us because its how we earn a living. I know I will be able to return to work soon, but until then we won't be able to catch up on this phone bill, putting us in grave danger of losing service before I can even get back to work.

That is why I am asking for help with our phone bill, so that when I can go back to work, I will have something to go back to. This help would allow us to catch up on all of our bills, and after I get back to work, we should be able to stay ahead on all of them too. Our phones are essential to our survival because without them we will not be able to work. This help would be a huge difference maker for us, and it would see us through an incredibly difficult time. Thank you for your support and compassion, now more than ever. My daughter and I will never forget this assistance!
