I'm a Medical Assistant & Mom of 2. My Car Brakes Are Broken & I Can't Get to Work!

My Story:

I am married with two children. My 9-year-old son was diagnosed with autism and last month, Tourette's Syndrome as well. My 12-year-old daughter loves riding her horse and doing puzzles. I work full-time as a medical assistant, and my husband stays home on disability.

Sadly, the rotor in our car has a hole in it, causing the car to shake badly when slowing down. It is only a matter of time before the brakes give out completely, which could lead to a very serious accident. The car is our only form of transportation; it is the only way I can get my kids to school and their appointments.

I am asking for this one-time help with our car repairs, so we do not risk falling behind on our usual bills to save it. This generous assistance will ensure my children get to continue going to school uninterrupted and I do not lose work because I cannot get there. Thank you so much for all your help.
