Family of 6 losing our home….desperate for ANY help.
My name is Kelli I’m 35, I’m a proud mother of 4 and a proud wife for 17 years. I’m BEGGING for $2,556.76 to save our home. We’re 16 days from pre-forclosure…we need help with a lot but our home means the world and is our priority. If we lose it…well I prefer not to think or talk about it. I feel optimistic that somehow we will save our home…
“MY SOB STORY”
(most have one)
At 26 I had to go on disability insurance, I am dialed from several conditions and am receiving palliative care. My most serious one is a rare back condition that’s untreatable and will lead to my passing. They don’t know how long I have 1 min or 10 years. Im deterioating quickly but hopefully not dying quickly. I have an arachnoid cyst that i got from a car accident. One of my discs herniated and punctured my thecal sac in my lower lumbar causing a small CSF leak, at the time I was 15. I was told it would be “okay” At 24 I collapsed at work went to the hospital and the MRI revealed the “small” leak turned into a giant monster filling up the entire inside of my sacrum. They said the CSF leak got trapped under the thecal sac membrane and the membrane filled with CSF and grew so large it goes down my spine and expands into a large sac in my sacrum…lower part of my back. It has caused permanent damage which has lead to onset paralysis, bladder incontinience, eroded my sacrum to “crystal” thin, permanent nerve damage, DDD, ruptured discs, herniated discs, drop foot, partial paralysis to me leg and constant nerve lower back pain, migraines due to the low CSF in my cranium. My last MRI revealed less than 1 year 4 discs deterioated completly which need to be fused but they can’t be fused due to the mass in they way and risk of rupturing the mass. NO SURGEON of any kind will operate due to more than likely rupturing the mass causing a full CSF loss. No CSF means no life. It seemed overnight my life did a 180 with my family suffering the most. My husband and children have stood strong by my side and I am stuck not being able to work do anything too physical. I can go on and on about my health problems,so sorry for rambling im not sure what to say here. So im telling a summary of my life story. I lost more $ than i would like to admit to try to work from home. The unemployment agency says most at home jobs are given in house at companies. My 4 children have what they need but deserve so much more. Due to my disability we NEVER had a vacation, honeymoon. Our vacations are when I have to go to a surrounding out of state city which we try to make fun, go to Chukee Cheese or toys r us and let them spend $10 each depending on if we have $ or not.No Disneyland not even a “honeymoon”. I would love to renew our marriage vows with just myself, husband and children and have it on a beach with private cabanas “I’m cheesy” I want to wear a wedding dress. I never had baby showers out of 4 pregnancies, (thanks friends) they were busy fighting planning them they never happened, the thought and fact they tried is good enough for me. I never got to say yes to a wedding dress, which I really really want to do! But every time we have any spare $ it goes to our children…clothes shoes so they “fit in” video games, headsets, tablets…no phone not even for my 15 year old :( who gets teased a lot at school for not having one. My parents have me and my husband on their family plan and can’t afford another line. God bless them for what they can do, their on a fixed income just as bad off as us. I swear our children literally ask for nothing, they are such kind selfless souls. Its a rare trait in people let alone children and 4 out of 4 I’m so proud and honored. They are amazing. I got a call from their school “which I’m thinking the worse” injury, getting bullied. Well it was the cafeteria staff calling to thank me and my husband for raising such great children. They said they are always respectful, patient and always thank them. It was an amazing phone call like making honor roll award as parenting. Really it’s who they are. Also who my husband and I are too. No matter working class, religion, race we respect all. We don’t drink, or do drugs. We don’t judge those that do just a personal lifestyle choice.
We have a car it’s a 95′ suburban that works. Our 04′ focus was reposessed after paying $6 grand for it and the purchase price was $4 grand. We didn’t read the dealerships fine print. They took it sold it and are still asking for the $2,800 owed? My childhood was difficult, sexual assault, abusive household. My adulthood is good considering, I’m just happy being with my 4 children my husband in our home/sanctuary. Growing up I watched a movie repeatedly called “A home of our own”, that movie put a fire in my soul that has lasted to this day to “own” a home. Well working with USDA for 3 yrs we got “a home of our own”. Now we are less than 2 months from losing it. We owe $2,556.76 to save our home and need a payment for June $1,218.52 to be 100% caught up. Our home is a humble 1400sq ft 3bd 2 ba. No family room, gourmet kitchen, A/C, wood floors but it is our home, our castle and we LOVE it, it’s clean, we eat family dinners every night, have family movie nights every Fri & Sat and have a prayer share befor bed. We’ve had this home almost 5 years and hopefully will be our home forever. We want to do for our children what our parents aren’t able to do for me our my husband and that is a home to pass on or $, they will be leaving us with memories which are priceless, so no complaints. A home to give our children when their grown is all we want. The fact is people who inherit a home/homes get a leg up, I’ve seen so many of our friends and extended family get left a home/homes, money and it betters their life. People we have asked for help are struggling too like us and say not to worry you’ll be able to get another one. Uhh no we won’t and where will we go? We have no savings acct, a negative checking account. So I’m begging you for $ help. I’m terrified which is difficult to admit. It makes it too real. Please help us?
We NEED a lot of what people can take for granted, all we want/need is our home. Anything will help $ anything your willing to spare is appreciated more than I can express! Even if your unable to help, just you taking the time to read this we are grateful for and you will be in our prayers. Donation or not.
Myself 35 Husband 35
Jake 15, Shah 12, Lailah 10 and Ali 8. They are one of a kind children “I’m not being cliche just cause their “my” children.” They are respectful,grateful, truthful and loving…ect
We’re super involved in the community, schools and outdoor activities. Since my illness it’s all indoor activities. They refuse to go anywhere without my and it’s heart wrenching because I don’t want ANYONE to know how I’ll I am..not even here. Too hard to talk about then it makes it too real. I need good doctors can’t afford them, dentists, optometrist, specialists…on and on. My children thanks to the state have medicaid and nutrition assistance. So they are healthy and always have access to ALL they need. We are grateful for the states assistance. You can help at:
