The past year have been devastating for my family. I lost work in early 2020. I found a new job but it was delayed months due to COVID. Also, my daughter was laid off due to that pandemic. During that time, I robbed Peter to pay Paul to keep my home and my daughter’s apartment afloat. We struggled for months, then we were devastated by two additional family tragedies.
My sister, who has struggled with drugs here entire adult life, was viciously beaten but her boyfriend. He is in jail, thankfully, but I bore a burden of her hospitalization and relocation expenses. I help her with housing and care costs. She is currently in a safe home, but is dealing with the trauma of being an abuse victim.
My brother has been battling health problems. I paid to have him undergo a full physical examination. We found out he has end stage kidney failure. He has been in the hospital for months. His health is failing but we are fighting. He recently had surgery for a perforated colon. His car was repossessed. But since he has been unable to work, an his disability is still months away. I have helped with the rent on his apartment.
I am grateful to have been able to help, but the financial strain is tough. We are pending foreclosure on our home. I am writing for assistance, as the family members closest to me, are unable to help. I truly believe if the tables were turned they would help me, but at this time, I have the weight of multiple homes to save. I thank you for reading my plight and would greatly welcome any assistance.
