Hello, My name is Israel. I am a single dad now after my wife of 16 years passed away from a rare and aggressive form of cancer. Endometrial Stromal Sarcoma high grade. Barb my wife fought like crazy for 18 months to beat it. She fought hard to stay alive and beat it for our daughter. Her favorite thing in the world was being a momma. As many of us know from experience cancer treatment is not cheap, even with good insurance. So after all the treatments, alternative treatments it drained my finances. I had to remortgage the house to pay back people i borrowed money from to make bills and pay for normal and extra expenses along the way. Just now with being wiped out all of my savings retirement money and my daughters college fund gone. I am struggling to rebuild my life. I am only asking for help because my daughter deserves more than being told no we cannot afford it. She understands we spent a lot of money to save her momma. She asks for very little, she really does not ask for much. She has forced herself to not buy makeup or new clothes, she does not go out with friends. Sydney, my daughter does odd jobs and gives what she earns and saves to help out. I am grateful for her help, but it breaks my heart to see her work hard and help pay for something that was not hers, her mommas or my choice. I work full time and do odd jobs after my day job. To tell the truth we both need a break. It would be a big help to have some of the smaller loans paid off. I have personally sold everything of value i could, coin collection from my grandma, guitars, old jewelry, watches, vintage comic books, to make ends meet. I do not drink or smoke so your generosity will not be wasted on frivolous unnecessary items. All i ask is give what you can. A dollar is most generous and grateful to receive. If you are able to help with more that is up to you.
Thank you for listening
