After Switching Jobs & Overcoming Cancer, I Need Help With a Past Due Sewage Bill!

My Story:

I am a 53-year-old breast cancer survivor. I had a high deductible insurance plan and many medical bills after my battle with cancer, and those two factors both put me in a bad spot financially. I switched jobs after beating cancer, and I decided to work for Amazon due to the healthcare benefits they provide. I worked there for almost 18 months, but the physical toll of the job itself forced me to quit. I simply could no longer physically do it. I was unemployed for a little while, and now work at a temp agency. Thanks to the gap in employment I dealt with, I got behind on my bills, and I am having a hard time catching up.

When I left Amazon, I took a paycut in order to do so. Despite that, I'm able to budget and keep up with my bills for the most part. The gap in employment that I dealt with forced me to pick and choose what bills I could cover. In order to cover my mortgage, I decided to forgo paying my sewage bill, but that has caught up to me now, and I need help. I'm humbly asking for assistance with my sewage bill so that I can get back. It would be the first time in a long time that I have been on track, and I would be very grateful. Cancer took a huge toll on me, but I know that I can bounce back with this assistance, and once I do, I will find a way to pay it forwards.
