I'm a Disabled Veteran in Urgent Need Of Help With Getting My Only Car Repaired Please!

My Story:

I'm a disabled veteran, and I've had surgery 7 times in the last 5 years to repair injuries related to my combat service. It's been hard since I left the military, but I'm extremely proud to have served my country. Up until recently, I was able to work, but I had to have surgery on my wrist back in March and again in June. I'm finally back to 100%, but I'm struggling to find work again, and I'm also struggling to get the VA to pay me the 13 years' worth of back pay that it owes me in benefits.

My monthly income is enough to afford my monthly bills and food, but I don't have much room after that. My car recently broke down and is completely unusable. I thought it was covered under warranty, but it turns out the warranty that I purchased was a complete scam, so now I have to pay for the repairs completely out of pocket. The only way I've been able to get to and from appointments, the grocery store, and church is by relying on family members, Ubers, and Taxis to get me where I need to go. The expenses are starting to add up though, and I can't keep relying on my family either, so I'm asking for assistance with these repairs please.

I'm on the verge of losing my only means of transportation if I can't get my vehicle out of the repair shop. They're threatening to put a lien on my vehicle if I can't come up with the money soon, so I'm humbly asking for urgent assistance with the costs of the repairs. Getting my vehicle out of the repairs hop will allow me to continue to see my doctors on schedule, and I'll be able to get back to searching for work as well. Thank you all in advance for this compassionate and generous assistance. I promise to never forget the people who lent me a hand when I needed it most.
