This is the last thing I ever thought I would have to do. I am a single mom of three teenagers battling cancer and I am struggling. I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2019 and was forced to resign from my career as an ER Nurse due to sickness and treatments. I was able to lean on money from my savings to make ends meet until July of 2022. (I escaped a brutal DV marriage in 2018 and do not receive child support. He refuses to work). I have to much in assets to qualify for state assistance or medical assistance. I have sold my vehicles, hobbie items, clothing, home decor, etc to help defray medical expenses and pay bills and buy food. I have received a final notice from my mortgage lender due to being 3 months behind. My electricity would have been shut off last month if the cold weather act didn’t save me and my heat bill is 3 months behind. I’ve leaned on the local food shelf for necessities and food but that only goes so far. Christmas was extremely tough as I wasn’t able to provide anything for my kids to open. Typically I am helping my community and local Charities this time of year. I go back for another round of treatments on January 17th and the thought of losing the only thing I have left for my kids and myself (our home) is devastating. Not knowing if I will be able to provide food for my kids during this treatment and knowing how sick it will leave me makes me even more worried. I am asking for help to put food on my table, buy hygienic items for my kids and to make any payments I can on my electric and heat bills so they are not shut off after winter. The house is something I can always replace if I lose it. My main focus is food and necessity items. This is extremely hard for me to do. Asking for help is not easy for me. If you can spare any financial aid or say a prayer for my family we would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for reading my story.
