First of all, thank you for your time in stopping to read this. I understand that your time is precious. I am trying not to make this long, but at the same time, I must be thorough and complete in the situation that we face.
Over the past year, my wife’s brother’s health has declined and he has been placed on hospice. He has chronic kidney disease and congestive heart failure, type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. This has all come about because when he was younger, he was brutally attacked by a group of guys that beat him and kicked him down 2 flights of concrete steps. My wife said that he actually died the night of the accident, but they brought him back to life.
She told me that they kicked him so hard their shoe prints were on his forehead. Ever since the accident, he has been blind in one eye, and he has suffered from schizophrenia, and developed agoraphobia where he wouldn’t leave his mother’s home.
For years he received no medical treatment until 2 years ago, my wife decided to get IVC papers and get him to a hospital. In the past 2 years, my wife has been his voice to help him get the care he needs.
Unfortunately, even though she has done all she could do to help him, and he has received great medical care in these two years, his health is drastically declining. He has recently lost sight in his other eye due to the extended time of his diabetes that wasn’t treated, and hospice has recently increased his pain medications, and every time we see him, he is looking closer and closer to death.
My wife ‘s mental and emotional health has recently been challenged as well during this time. She was diagnosed with anxiety and depression before all this happened and ever since she has taken over to take care of her sick brother, seeing her brother in that condition has really taken a toll on her emotionally. Also, she is an in home health care nurse, and she works with elderly people that suffer from Alzheimer and dementia..
With everything that has been going on, due to her health and the health of her brother, she has had to scale back on the hours that she was working. Also, during this time, the company that I work for has recently cut back on the hours that I was working, which has decreased the amount of pay that I am receiving each week.
With my wife being unable to work the hours she once worked, and with the cut back in hours at my job, we have been in drastic cut back mode for the past few months, and we have cut off every unnecessary expense that we could. The money that we have now is only going towards those bills that must be paid, rent, electricity and water. And even though we have cut back, the bills can some weeks be overwhelming and there isn’t enough for us to save or even have left over to try and enjoy one night out just to get away from the situations, go to a movie, or a dinner.
For the past year, we have been talking about starting our own business and have been talking ideas between each other, about ways to earn passive income, in order for us to not find ourselves in this situation again. We are a husband and wife team that never asks for help, but we have found during this time, that sometimes, you do need a person or a group of people that can lend you a hand, can help you see a different perspective of things, and can also teach you how to not be in this position that you find yourself in.
We do currently need help financially, but we understand that if you give someone fish, they eat for a day, but, if you teach someone to fish, they eat for a lifetime. We are looking for financial help for the current situation that we face, but we would also like to know if there is anyone out there that would be willing to help show us how to get started in business and also how to set up multiple streams of income, in order for us to be financially free, and then in turn, we can be in the position to help other people in situations just like we find ourselves in. And not just help them financially, but help them in creating a life where they can escape financial pressures.
What we are needing at the moment is money for rent which is due by August 10th. Our rent is $845. Also, we need help with the upcoming electric bill, which is $200. We also need some help getting the necessary groceries that we need for the next 2 weeks, which can be at least $150.
All total, we need $1,195 and we really need this amount by August 10th. Anyone out there willing to help, it will be greatly appreciated.
We also would like to keep you updated on how the donations are being spent, so, I am willing to add my email so that you can contact me in order to show you proof that we are legitimate in our request.
Also, I will leave my email address in order for anyone out there that can help us start up a business at home or can help us set up multiple streams of income.
Once again, thank you for your time in reading this and we thank you in advance for your help during this difficult time.
