I'm Caring for My Husband Who's in Hospice Care, & I Need Help Keeping Our Home Please!

My Story:

My husband and I live together with our dog, Kelly, and we don't have any children together. Come April Fool's Day, we've been married for 40 years! My husband has been disabled for 25 years now after being self-employed doing home improvement work, so it's up to me to make ends meet for us. I work two jobs to bring in enough to keep us going, which is especially difficult while trying to cover my husband's medical procedures. I love my husband and work hard to take care of him.

Right now, I work overnights shifts, so that I can provide hospice care for my husband during the day. We are both in our 60's I would have never thought our golden years would be this way. Still, I thank God that we've been able to spend time with each other and that we've been able to find assistance through our social worker at Stella Maris. With my husband in hospice care, I worry a lot about our future, but I know that I have to take things one day at a time so that we can keep moving forward. However, our budget is stretched thin right now due to my husband's medical situation, and I'm worried that we could lose our home as a result.

I'm having a difficult time balancing all of our bills while caring for my husband and working overnights shifts at Amazon, so I'm humbly asking for assistance with getting on top of our mortgage so that we don't lose our home. Having our mortgage taken care of would be tremendous for my husband and I because we wouldn't have to worry about keeping our home while I do my best to provide hospice care for my husband. Looking ahead, I'm going to need to be able to take FMLA leave, and I'm not sure what my pay is going to look like during that time, but with this assistance, I won't have to worry about that impacting my ability to keep our home. Truly, we would be so blessed to receive this help, and I promise that I will do my best to repay the kindness we're shown.
