Please, we need financial help to stay in our home.
Hello, my name is Dan. I am a 29 year old married father of 4 in Three Lakes WI and I would like to ask for your help. Here is my story.
When I was 23 or 24 years old I was rushed to the hospital in the middle of the night due to a sickness that was making me throw up violently for hours on end. After about 4 hours I was released with nothing but a doctor telling me that I had food poisoning and I would get better in a few days. During my visit to the ER I was put through many tests like cat scans that built up a heavy bill. At the time I was only playing music and bartending to get by and I could not afford health insurance. My visit to the ER that night cost around 11 thousand dollars. I soon after applied for local aid to help pay my bill. The lady I was dealing with to apply for this help was nasty to my family and to myself. I tried to apply with her 3 separate times and got to a point with this woman that I gave up. I didn’t deserve the disrespect she showed to us. Year or more later my bill turned into a judgment.
When I was a child my family never had much money and I always told myself that I would do whatever it took to give my kids a happier life. So doing this at my point in my life is utterly embarrassing and frustrating to me but I have run out of options and I am begging you to please consider helping me and my family in our time of need. This is what I need help with.
I met my wife in Milwaukee WI at a show I was performing 7-8 years ago. She had three children from a previous marriage and I thought to myself that I would give it a shot. Love does amazing things! Years later she was my wife and I had three amazing step children and 1 of my own. I soon left the entertainment business and focused on supporting my family the best way I could.
My wife found a home for sale she absolutely loved and due to my judgement we couldn’t go and get a home mortgage. We knew the owner of the home and asked if we could do a rent to own contract till we could resolve my judgement. She agreed and we moved into our new home. Our contract is for 2 years with a 3rd year option and now we are getting close to our two year mark. We were recently informed that our extra third year on the contract is not available anymore to us.
Since we moved into our home we have tried so hard to make money and resolve out Dept’s to get a mortgage. I went from night stocking shelf’s at a local super market to becoming store manager at another. I now work as a mail carrier at USPS. My wife has gotten considerable raises at her work and the two of us were finally starting to see decent income into our family but yet the more money we made it seemed like the worse off we were. We no longer qualify for any assistance and pay way more for health insurance. My father passed away this last year unexpectedly and didnt leave a will. Our tax return was completely opposite of what we were getting previous years and it seems like we are digging deeper despite the income we are getting. We budget everything and spend what little money we have on things we need for our family not want.
We are asking for $15,000 dollars to resolve the judgement and help JumpStart our mortgage.
With our deadline to fix my medical judgment and get a mortgage for our home vastly approaching, I fear that we will soon lose our home unless we get help quickly. My kids don’t deserve to go through this. Please donate whatever you can to my wonderful family so we don’t need to worry about the roof over our heads anymore. Even if you decided to not help us, I thank you for taking the time to read this and Peace be with you.
