Our Home is In Danger Due to Severe Water Damage! Please Help Us Afford the Repairs We Need!

My Story:

I'm married to my wife of 30 years, and we have built a happy and joy-filled life together. We have three adult daughters and two beautiful grandkids who we love very much. My wife works full-time, and I am on disability because of a back injury. We love crossword puzzles, spending time with our kids/grandkids, and doing the Wordle every day! Our family means everything to us, and we really treasure the time that we all get to spend together.

Like I said, my wife works, but I'm disabled and can't work. We earn enough to sustain ourselves, but we don't ever have room for large, unexpected expenses. We recently had an active leak from our roof into the bedroom and adjoining room. As you can imagine, this has been a nightmare for us to try to deal with. The damage is extensive, and it's going to be extremely expensive for us to repair the damage, even after insurance kicks in. We've been able to afford to have the roof repaired so that we could stop the leak at the source, but the rest of the repairs that we need to have done are outside of our reach and limited budget. We're very humbly asking for assistance with getting the rest of repairs that we need to have done.

Our greatest concern is that if we let the damage in our home fester, then it will lead to mold, foul odors, or more seriously, severe structural damage. It's important that we get these repairs done as soon as possible in order to avoid long-standing issues with our home. It took my wife and I years to build a home together, and it's really shaken us to have that work threatened by the water damage we're dealing with. We want to stress that we would be deeply appreciative of this support, and I promise that we will do our best to repay the kindness that we receive.
