We're Struggling to Keep Our Water On After My Husband Was Diagnosed with Brain Tumors! Please Help.
My husband and I have been married since 2011 and just celebrated our 10 year anniversary. Unfortunately, our celebration was short-lived because on the evening of October 6th, my husband had a grand mal seizure. This was the first time I witnessed such a thing, and the way his left side of his face looked I honestly thought he was having a stroke. It was a truly horrifying experience, and it's difficult for me to talk about, honestly. A few hours after being admitted to the hospital, my husband called me and told me that they had found tumors in his brain. I composed myself until getting off the phone, then I lost it. My first thought being 'oh my God my soul mate is going to die.' I've never felt fear like that before.
After his diagnosis, my husband had to quit working his job at the prison, and we've really struggled since then. He takes a lot of pride in providing for his family, so it's really hard on him to not be working; in fact, at times he'd work 80 hour weeks to make sure we were all taken care of. I also was working as well, but I lost my job due to the pandemic, so at the time of his diagnosis, he was the only one working. My unemployment has run out, and he's applied for disability and unemployment benefits, but we haven't received any word on those yet. With mounting medical bills and without anything coming in right now, we're barely getting by. We used my husband's last paychecks to cover our rent and car payments, but we don't have any way to cover our other bills.
We're in a really desperate situation, and we need urgent help to keep our water and phones on. I'm humbly asking for assistance with these two bills while my husband heals from these tumors and while I continue to search for work. Finding work has proven to be difficult because our son is home and out of school due to COVID. Still, every day I pray that my husband will recover and that I will find work. Until then, we would be so grateful and would feel so blessed to receive help with these two bills. I would like to end by just saying 'thank you in advance' to all of the kind people who lend us a hand.
