Someone Stole the Catalytic Converter on Our Vehicle & We need Help Replacing It Please!
I am a single parent of a 5-year-old fighter of a daughter. She is very enthusiastic, entertaining, and energetic. She has dreams of becoming the world's greatest gymnast and is very family oriented. I work full-time as a medical assistant, full-time as a mommy, and eventually, I would love to go back to school to continue my nursing career.
Normally, my daughter and I don't have much trouble in terms of getting by with our bills, but we were the victims of a seemingly random and expensive theft. A few days ago, someone stole the catalytic converter from our only vehicle. This has rendered my vehicle completely unusable, and we're struggling because I can't get to work and can't get my daughter to school either. I had to make the decision to rent a vehicle for us to use while we wait to get the repairs done because we simply can't get by without a car. At first, I thought it was only the catalytic converter that would need to be replaced. However, it turns out that when the thief stole the part, they sawed it off and caused damage to other parts of the vehicle. As a result, I'm struggling to afford the cost of all of the repairs that we need to make alongside our regular monthly bills and the cost of a rental car. I'm very humbly asking for assistance with getting our vehicle repaired.
While I do have insurance, they aren't willing to cover all of the costs associated with the repairs, and it's also been difficult to deal with them because the police haven't been able to figure out who stole the part from my vehicle in the first place. Without help from the insurance company or the police, and without any help to rely on from family or my daughter's father, we're on our own and are really struggling. It feels like we're drowning right now, but if we're able to get our vehicle fixed, it will put us on solid ground again, so to speak. My daughter and I would greatly appreciate this assistance, and I promise that we will never forget the assistance that we receive.
