Today I have a little more faith and hope for my future because thanks to everyone who helped, my family and I still have a roof under our heads. I write this with tears in my eyes because I thought I was not going to make it but Modest Needs donors are so kindhearted and selfless and have made it possible. I appreciate very much all the help and as soon as I get better and get back on my feet again I will make sure to help those in need as well. Thank you very much for this great gift, I feel blessed and I send many blessings to everyone.

After Being Diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I Need Help Holding On to My Family's Home!

My Story:

I am 35 years old and was diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer at the end of 2019. I was hospitalized for three months at the beginning of 2020 and had radiation treatment, and I'm currently going through chemotherapy. During that time, I lost my job, my grandma, and I came to live with my parents due to my financial situation. My mom is disabled; she suffers terrible pain and is in bed most of the time due to fibromyalgia. My dad is the only one employed currently, and he works as an electrician and fights very hard to try to bring in enough money to maintain the household.

With my mom and I both being unemployed due to our health, it's been extremely difficult for us all to get by on just my father's income. It became nearly impossible for us to get by when he lost hours at work. We're doing our best to make ends meet, but without him working full-time hours, we've fallen behind on our house payments. I do my best to help out and I contribute more than half of my SSI payments for the house payment, and I use the other half for my medical bills and for food. We're a couple of months behind on the mortgage now, and we've applied for hardship relief but after months of wait, we've still not gotten word of whether that's gone through or not. I'm worried that this could eventually lead to us losing our home if we don't get caught up soon.

Mainly, I'm asking for help on behalf of my parents. They've worked hard their entire lives to try to build a future for me, and I want to do my best by them to ensure that they don't lose everything they've worked hard for over the years. I'm worried that they'll be homeless as they reach retirement, and I couldn't think of a worse place for them to be in. That's why I'm humbly asking for help with our mortgage right now. It would be an incredible blessing to my family to receive this help, and truly I could never repay that kind of generosity. Still, I promise that every day I'll work hard to recover and will work hard to spread the same kindness and generosity that you all have shown us. God bless you all and thank you in advance.
