My Car Broke Down Just as I Was Returning to Work After a Battle with Breast Cancer! Please Help Us!

My Story:

I'm 36-years-old, and I'm a single mother with three children at home. My oldest daughter is 13 years old, and she's going into the 8th grade and is a competitive cheerleader. My middle child is my only son, and he's the love and light of my life. Truly, there's nothing like a mother and son bond. He's a very outgoing kid, and he loves sports. My youngest is my sassy 2-year-old daughter. I love all of my children so much, and I do the best that I can to provide for them, but we've fallen on hard times lately.

In August of 2021, I was diagnosed with Stage-1 Breast Cancer. I was out of work for five months, and I was eventually able to return in March. Still, while I was out of work, I was receiving just about 60 percent of my income, and even though I've returned, I'm still only able to work in a limited capacity while receiving continued treatment. With my income being limited, I'm struggling to keep up with all of my bills, and now, our only vehicle just broke down and needs major repairs that we can't afford. It's still driveable, but it won't be for long if we can't get these repairs done. I'm worried that will keep me from getting to work, but more importantly, I'm worried about the impact it will have on my health if I'm not able to get to and from my doctor's appointments and hospital appointments, both of which are a lengthy commute for me. So, I'm humbly seeking assistance with getting these much-needed repairs done to my vehicle.

Having reliable transportation is extremely important to my family and to my health, so we would be incredibly grateful for this assistance and the long-term benefits it will have on our lives. With this assistance, I'll be able to focus on my treatment and my job so that I can get back on top of our finances. My children rely on me to support them, so it's important that I stay healthy and employed in order to care for them. If I'm able to get help with these repairs, it will allow me to do both, and as a mother, I would be eternally grateful for this assistance.
