A Medical Emergency Cost Me My Job. Even Though I'm Working Again, I Need Help Keeping My Home!

My Story:

I'm a 57-year-old woman, and I live on my own, but I'm never alone thanks to my two best friends, my little dogs. They're cuddled up beside me as I write this, and they rarely ever leave my side. I've faced a lot of peaks and valleys this past year, but through it all, they've been right there with me.

Last year, on a journey across the country, I had a medical emergency on the side of the road. I was traveling with my dog, Leo, but I woke up in the hospital a few days later after recovering from sepsis, and Leo wasn't there with me. I panicked for a while, but two weeks later, I was able to locate him by phone and got him when I was discharged from the hospital. During that time though, I lost my job, and it took a long time for my health to get back to where it was, and in all honesty, I've never fully recovered physically. Things got so bad that at one point, I was living out of my car. However, I've managed to get back to work since then, and I've been able to keep up with my bills and find a home, but I've had trouble keeping up with my rent due to the gap in employment that I had. I don't have anything to fall back on after using my savings to find a home, so I'm humbly asking for assistance with catching back up on my rent.

Currently, I'm about a month behind, and there's nothing stopping me from being evicted if I can't catch up very soon. I've been homeless before and can't go through that again, and I definitely can't put my dogs through that. This assistance would get me caught up on my rent, and I could take it from there and slowly begin to rebuild my savings. I'll be able to keep my home and keep pushing ahead after a year of seemingly endless hardship. For that, I would be deeply appreciative, and I would like to thank everyone who takes the time to read my story.
