My Family Is Reeling from a Cancer Diagnosis & We Need Help keeping Our Lights on Please!

My Story:

I am a married mother of 4 children, our recent family addition is only 8 weeks old! I work full time and care for my family full time. We love to spend time together making memories with our dogs, we enjoy fishing and family outings. We have 6 dogs that are very special to us. We love to cook together and make each other laugh!

My husband was diagnosed with cancer only one year ago, and he was in critical condition when diagnosed; in fact, the doctors gave him a 40% survival rate. His diagnosis has hit us really hard, and the treatments he receives are taking a really extreme toll on his body. He's in nearly constant pain and has had to stop working as a result. On top of that, I only just returned to work from maternity leave, and now we're really struggling to cover our monthly bills. We ended up having our car repossessed, and now I'm really worried that we're going to lose our electricity service too because we're a couple of months behind with that.

I'm working again, but my family still can't get caught up on our electricity bill while relying on my income alone and while also paying for my husband's cancer treatments. I fear my family is falling apart, so I'm humbly asking for assistance with our electric bill, as we're facing a desperate situation. It would mean so much to us to have a chance to get back on our feet again, and I promise that when we are, we'll look to pay this forward.
