Hi, my name is Ross. I have a wife and two kids. For the last 7 months I have been dealing with back issues and unable to work. For the first 5 months I was getting disability pay through my work at 50% of my normal paychecks. I no longer recieve disability pay and I am still in the process of going to different doctors and specialists to figure out exactly what is going on with my back. I am currently back to work with a lot of restrictions and working less than 40 hours every 2 weeks. My 16yr old son is working and using his paycheck to help his mother and I pay our bills. I can’t even begin to tell you how that makes me feel as a father, asking my son to help pay the bills his mother and I are suppose to be responsible for.
As of this moment, we are a month behind on our mortgage with this months mortgage due in a few days as well. Thanks to the food shelf and local food programs, nobody is going to bed hungry at least.
$2500 would go a long way to getting our heads back above water.
I just want to thank you for taking the time to read this, and I greatly appreciate any and all help!
