User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeThank you so much to all of my donors who reached out in our time of need. With your donations I will be able to pay my back rent and not have to worry about moving and the additional financial stress this would cause. My son is now thriving with his insulin and now has been covered effective 9/1/2022 for a medicaid waiver to cover all future cost of his insulin. This means the world to our family and I feel confident now knowing that there are people out there who really do care and want to help! Thank you for reading and helping us, words cannot express how much this means to us.

My Son Needs Lifesaving Insulin, but We Can't Afford That Alongside Our Rent & Need Help!

My Story:

I'm the mother of an amazing son, and I've raised him and continue to care for him on my own after my husband left us. He's 27 years old and is disabled. My son is on the autism spectrum and struggles with Type-1 Diabetes as well. Currently, he's attending a day program so that I can work full-time during the day. I'm working for an insurance company, and I like what I do for the most part, but we do tend to live paycheck to paycheck.

My husband left us fairly recently, and so we've been reduced to relying on my income to meet our regular bills. We were able to pay all of our monthly bills until recently when my son was diagnosed with Type-1 Diabetes. His medications and the insulin treatments that he needs are extremely expensive, and they've cut into our monthly budget. In fact, we're having a lot of trouble affording our rent this month while trying to manage the cost of my son's medication on our own. I'm worried that this situation is going to cause us to lose our home, so I'm very humbly asking for assistance with our rent.

We recently applied for Medicaid but are on a waiting list for assistance with my son's medications, and until we can get Medicaid assistance, we're going to struggle with the rest of our bills. It's hard to be a in a position where we have to choose between lifesaving medication for my son and keeping our home, but I have to do what I can to make sure my son is healthy. This assistance would be huge for my family though, as we would be able to keep our home and wait for my son to receive assistance through Medicaid. With that in mind, we would be very appreciative of any help we receive with our rent, and I promise that I will find a way to pay it forward in the near future.
