it’s extremely embarrassing for me to have to beg for assistance, but over the past few months I’ve endured some serious life altering events that have put me in a financial mess.
Let me start off with a little background. I’m a single mother of a wonderful 3 year old boy. We’ve been able to get by just fine, even without the help of his father, who has chosen to not be involved. In fact he’s disappeared leaving no contact information whatsoever. I’ve been in the HOA Property management industry for a few years now and had a very decent salary that was enough to support us without the need of additional assistance.
Things began to go downhill when my child was diagnosed with autism. The medical bills for out of pocket expenses on things like neurologist, hearing exams, speech and occupational therapy and many other specialists started to take a toll on my finances, even with medical insurance.
Things got even worse as my grandmother’s health began to deteriorate. My grandmother was my caregiver while I worked, but a few months ago it became very apparent that she could no longer manage to take care of herself, let alone a 3 year old with special needs. With that said, I had to make the decision to go part time in order to lessen the burden on her. However, she just kept getting worse and worse.
My grandmother was eventually diagnosed with desmentía which meant she was in no way able to continue to care for my boy and I was faced with the decision to quit my job to care for both.
Her illness deteriorated even further soon after and I was forced to place her in a nursing home, which of course the insurance only agreed to pay a portion of. Unfortunately, my grandmother ended up passing away recently, which left me with additional debt.
So my rent, utilities, car note, car insurance and other expenses were put on the back burner. Thankfully my landlord has been understanding through all of this, but they’ve been patient long enough. I now owe $4500 in rent and utilities and on top of that have fallen behind on my car loan and I’m currently driving around with no insurance.
I’m asking for $7,000 to pay what I owe in rent as I’ve received a notice to vacate and to also catch up on my car loan as I’m on the verge of repossession.
Please help me get back on my feet and maintain a stable environment for my son. This is all we have left and on top of everything he’s been through I can’t even imagine putting him through more uncertainty. Stability and a routined lifestyle are extremely important for a child with his needs. Living in a shelter would be extremely difficult for us.
Please, anything you can do to help us is extremely appreciated! Thank you!
