I'm Struggling to Pay My Electric Bill After Being Diagnosed with Cancer!

My Story:

I am a 68-year-old retired English professor, and I was recently diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. When I retired in 2019, I moved to Florida to be closer to my daughter and grandchild. I purchased a home in 2020, right before the pandemic impacted the nation, and I looked forward to enjoying my retirement years with my family. Unfortunately, this recent diagnosis and the recurrence of breast cancer has made things very difficult for my family. On top of that, my daughter's recent loss of employment has also severely impacted our financial situation. Right now, we're struggling to keep up with all of our bills, and we're a few months behind on our electric bill and need help.

Although I feel that I am coping fairly well emotionally with my diagnosis, the financial pressure I'm experiencing is stressful and overwhelming. Like I said, my daughter lost her job, and she's now only working part-time. With my medical bills factored in, we don't have enough to catch up on our electric bill before it's shut-off. I'm very humbly asking for help with my electric bill so that I can stay on top of my financial situation and so I can keep my lights on. Thank you all for this assistance and for giving me the chance to refocus my efforts on getting healthy again. I will never forget this generous support.
