My Husband Had Several Seizures & I Missed Work. Now Our Family Will Lose Power!

My Story:

I am a married mother of 4 amazing young boys. My husband and I have been together for 21 years and married for 12. Our boys are our life. Our oldest is 15; he plays football for his high school. Our twins are 12, and they are both so different. I work from home because I home-school our youngest three kids. They will be starting public school in August, though, and when that happens, I will start working in person again. Things will be changing for us big time!!

We earn enough to cover our bills, but unfortunately, we came into a hardship. Over the last few years my husband was diagnosed with epilepsy, and he had a series of bad seizures recently. When that happens, we both must miss work. Luckily for him, he had PTO, but I did not. I was also already having trouble because my job had temporarily cut employee hours, so this loss of work really took a toll on me. One of our twins has also had back-to-back appointments with a neurologist, as they are concerned he may have epilepsy as well. My husband can no longer drive due to his condition, so I am the one who had to miss work to take our son to these appointments.

I am asking for Modest Needs' help with our electric bill. We could not afford to pay for it after I lost all those hours. Because we are already on a payment plan, the company is not willing to work with us anymore. I've thought about taking money from another bill to pay this, but I worry that would result in us being late on our mortgage and losing our home. This act of kindness would keep our household running and get us all caught up. I have already been able to get more hours with my job and even picked up an additional position; we will be out of this mess with your help. Thank you so much for anything you can give to keep our power on.
