After COVID, I'm Still Out of Work Due to Medical Issues, & I Need Help Keeping Our Phones On!
I'm a single mom with two teenagers at home, and I love to spend every minute that I can with my children. I feel very lucky to have both of my parents nearby to help with the kids as much as possible, and I also feel very lucky to be a part of such a great community. I'm a school-bus driver for the local school district, and I like my job a lot and took a big leap to do it.
I've always had a hard time of making it on my own as a single mother, but we've still always managed to get by. However, COVID really changed that, and it's been very difficult for us to manage our bills, especially after some other unexpected expenses have come up. Covid-19 has kept me out of work as a school bus driver for most of the year, but in addition to that, I became very ill after suffering a bleeding ulcer in my stomach. I was told that I would have to have part of my stomach removed, and I went through that surgery and have had more complications since then. At this point, I seem to be in and out of the hospital on a daily basis, and I'm now being told that I can't return to my profession for the foreseeable future. Just as we were finally heading towards some sense of financial stability, we've seen it all ripped away and are in a really bad situation now.
Our bills are all backed up but getting relief with just one of them would be huge, and it would do a lot to keep us going. So, I'm asking for assistance with our phone/internet bill because it's far behind and vital to us being able to keep in touch with the world. If we're able to take care of this bill, we'll be one huge step closer to making it through this pandemic and my medical issues without losing everything that we have. I would be extremely grateful for this assistance with our phone/internet bill as I recover from these horrible, debilitating medical issues. Thank you all in advance for taking the time to consider my family for this kind assistance.
