My Family Tragically Lost My Father to Cancer. Please Help Us Keep Our Home.

My Story:

I'm a single mother with two sons at home. My oldest is about to be 16 years old, and he's a good student and a very responsible young man. He helps me take care of his 9-year-old little brother when I'm at work. I work very hard to provide for my sons, and most days, I work at least a 10-hour shift. Despite that, we definitely live from check to check and don't have much to put away in case of an emergency or an unexpected hardship.

Right now, my family is dealing with the tragic loss of my father. Earlier this year, he was diagnosed with brain, stomach, lung, and kidney cancer. Unfortunately, his conditioned worsened as the cancer developed rapidly, and he lost his battle with cancer in June. I was caring for him throughout his battle, and I had to take a lot of days of off work to be with him and to get him to and from his appointments. Then, when he passed, I took more time off of work to grieve his loss. All of the time that I took off was unpaid, so I started to fall behind on a lot of our bills, and now we're a month behind on our mortgage.

Even though I'm working consistently again, I'm worried because I can't get caught up on our mortgage. I'm afraid that my children and I are going to lose the place that we've always called home, so I'm seeking urgent assistance with our mortgage. Being able to get caught up would finally put us back on track after this tragic loss, and that's something we'll never forget. It's been a difficult past few months for us, but this act of generosity would bring us some much-needed hope. Thank you all in advance for this assistance with our mortgage.
