I'm a Disabled Veteran, & After I Stopped Working, We're Struggling to Keep Our Cars. Please Help!

My Story:

I'm married to my amazing wife, and we have a daughter together. She's a cheerleader and an honor roll student, and we couldn't be any prouder of her. My wife is very loving and caring, and I've always worked hard to provide for her and my daughter. However, I've had to stop working recently due to leg and ankle problems that are the result of my military service. My wife works full-time still, but we're struggling while we await a determination on my disability benefits.

I recently had to stop working, but before that, we faced several other hardships that have impacted our financial situation as well. My father recently passed away, and that's taken a huge emotional toll on me and my family. I had to take a short bereavement leave from work to mourn his loss. At the time losing that income was manageable, but then, my wife and daughter both had COVID. My wife had to miss work while she was sick, and I missed work to care for our daughter too. If that wasn't already enough, our hot water heater just burst too, and we had to get that repaired immediately. We started to fall behind on our bills after my wife and daughter got COVID, and now that we've had to repair our hot water heater and now that I've had to stop working, we're really struggling to keep up. We're behind on both of our car notes, and I'm worried that we're going to be left without any means of transportation before I get a determination on my disability benefits.

For the sake of being able to care for my family, I'm very humbly asking for assistance with catching up on our car notes. Having this help will give me more time to start receiving disability benefits, and it will give us a little bit more a of a cushion. We'll be able to keep our vehicles, and for that we would be very grateful. Thank you all in advance for your compassion and generosity, and I know that someday soon, my family will pay this forward.
