I’m a young twenty-three year old man who has fallen in to desperate times. I did not even know help like this existed. If you’re out there reading my story, it all began in March of this year (2014.) I drive a 2011 Mazda 2, still making payments on it, and had the misfortune of hitting a curb and messing up my passenger side tie rod, which is a whopping $883.00 to repair (Goodyear estimate) I have been unable to repair that as I lost my job back in June, and have been living with my father, a fifty-five year old man who dedicated his life to raising two sons on his own. A sweet man, whom battled cancer for many years, and has survived treatment for prostate and colon cancer so far. Currently his health is improving, but I am struggling to make it, I work part time at a movie theater and its not paying the bills. I’m facing repossession on my vehicle and recently my passenger window was busted out. I’m starting to give up on this car, as its cost me so much in the short years that I’ve had it. My monthly payment is $263.04, and I’m approaching my next payment date. I don’t know what to do, I was raised to never ask for a hand out but so many shortcomings in such a brief amount of time, this was all I could think of. Anything would help. I just have to keep this car somehow, as its the only vehicle in my family and without it we wouldn’t make it. Please help me out.
Thank you sincerely for reading my story.
