Hi, My name is Susan. Thank you for taking the time to read about my problems.
I am currently in Texas and desperately trying get to the east coast as my Dad needs my help and I fear for his health. He is 78 and all alone and his best friend recently died. He just had some concerning test results. He already has had a triple bypass and has a bad infection in his foot. He is having trouble with his doctors and I need to be there as he is not wanting to or able to go for treatment because he has no one to drive him and cannot afford to pay people. I fear he is giving up. Assisted living is not an option as he wants to stay in his home and I promised I would care for him in his old age. He would rather die than lose his home and his pets and I completely understand how he feels.
I lost my Jeep Grand Cherokee in a bad accident and the insurance company took so much time to settle that I was unable to get another vehicle with the money because I had to use it to pay bills that were incurred due to my inability to work without transportation.
I came out to Colorado 8 months ago with a friend to continue my foundation which I had just started and has since closed because one of my partners betrayed me. That ripped my heart out. I then came down to Texas with another friend intending to work and get a vehicle and head back out east but due to my location and lack of transportation I have been unable to get work. I sell things online but that just covers my food and otther basic needs and just barely as I am running out of things to sell.
I need a vehicle to get back out east and where I am going is also a rural area with no public transportation. I will need to be able to drive my Dad to his appointments and to run errands.
The last couple of years have been very hard since the accident. Losing my foundation which was my future and recently my best friend. I just need a helping hand so I can go take care of my Dad. I am afraid I will lose him if I don’t get there soon. I don’t think I could ever forgive myself if I lost my Dad because I was not there to care for him. He has helped me all of his life and is my closest friend.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
I know I am asking for a miracle.
A vehicle that will make it cross country will cost 2-3000 dollars.
Plus registration and insurance another 150.00.
And enough money for gas and food to make it 2300 miles about 5-600.00 dollars.
I can sleep in the vehicle at rest stops on my way.
Around 3500-4000 Dollars which to me is a fortune right now.
I have been asking around if anyone can donate a car. even posted on CL but have not received any responses. I checked out the websites that will give you a car and reddit but all require votes and time which I just do not have time to secure. It takes months. My credit is damaged and I do not have a job so I cannot get a loan. I have no family or friends who are in a position to offer any help. I have looked for online employment and found mostly scams or sites that want you to pay. I cannot afford that.
