As with many Americans my family needs immediate financial assistance.
I’ve worked since I was 13 years old, first in a youth program then a department store and after graduation and my mothers death I joined the Air Force. After completion of a five year term during the Vietnam War I returned to civilian life and a 30 year career in healthcare. I SURVIVED AN ABUSIVE MARRIAGE AND BECAME A DIVORCED MOTHER OF TWO BEAUTFUL GIRLS BOTH WITH DISABILITIES. The girls and I survived by my working at least 65 hours per week. Now, one of the girls has put her dreams on hold to help me in my illness. It’s difficult for her most time as she can not afford to feed both of us. We live on beans, rice and pasta,so the rent can be paid on time. Last year before this illness struct I was headed for a six figure income and had money in the bank, as I always stressed to the girls to have a rainy day fund. My oldest daughter lost her first job and had her hours cut on her second job. My youngest daughter saw 3/4 of her office be let go and waited for her turn should the office close altogether. She was going back to school in her off time to get a second degree but had to stop because she was caring for me. I used that fund I wrote about earlier to pay my bills until it ran out.
I’ve been sick about a year, lost everything including a 35 year career. Neither my short term nor long term disability insurance claims were paid to me. I’ve gone 6 months now some without medications due to cost. Now the apartment complex where I live with my daughter says there was an error last year and to renew the lease we have to come up with 1250usd in addition to the rent or move. The rent has always been paid on time. We are not living above are means, we share a one bedroom apartment where I sleep in the dining room, we have no furniture and I sleep on an airbed,but we have no complaints, not one, we are grateful. My health has improved greatly but I will never be well enough to return to the level in the healthcare field I left. I am willing to do anything in order to support myself and help my daughter if possible.I know people are hurting all over and I feel for each family.
This a one time need. WHATEVER ANYONE CAN HELP WITH WE WOULD BE GRATEFUL. I will forward I.O.U.’S for amounts given and can pay back 50usd every two weeks. It would take me a while to get it all paid back, UNLESS I FIND EMPLOYMENT, but I promise to do so. The need is immediate.
Thank you for considering my situation. PLEASE if you can help with any amount, ANY $5 DOLLARS, 10, 25,50,100 ANYTHING! I would prefer my name not be placed in cyberspace. CONTACT (email removed) SITE Please cut and paste to your social networks to help me get the word out. Time is of the essence.
