I'm a Veteran Caring For My Mother. After a Dangerous Fall, I Need Help with the Medical Bills!

My Story:

I'm a United States military veteran, and I live with and care for my mother who is my dependent. She has a beautiful soul, and she dedicates a lot her time to her artwork that functions as a form of therapy. We live alongside our two pets, our cat named Precious and our dog named Stallion. Our cat is the light of our home, and our dog is almost 12 years old but still looks and moves like he's a puppy. I would say that family is the most important thing in my life, and I love them dearly.

I work for the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in our area as an administrative support assistant. I'm very passionate about my work, and I believe strongly in the idea of veterans serving veterans. I've been working from home since the pandemic began in order to protect my mother's health. She's not working, so I function as the primary earner in the household, and the responsibility for our bills falls on me. Usually, I'm able to handle it, but we definitely live paycheck to paycheck, or at least we have been lately.

Our hardship began when I experienced a fall while working on our windows at home. To be completely honest, it nearly cost me my life. As a result of the fall, I've missed some work and have had to have several costly surgeries. Between missing work and the costs associated with these surgeries, we're struggling to afford our bills and even to buy groceries. I'm worried about our situation and the long-term effects that not being able to afford these medical bills could have on us, so I'm very humbly seeking help with them.

This generous assistance would get us completely back on track again while I keep working hard to provide for my family. I'll be able to avoid having to choose between having those bills go to collections or buying groceries. For that blessing, we would be deeply and truly grateful to you all for your support. I will never forget the kindness and generosity we're shown, and I promise to do my best to pay it forward as soon as possible. Thank you all in advance.
