Life can be filled with unexpected twists and turns, and sometimes we find ourselves faced with challenges we never could have imagined. My name is Lena, and I would like to share my story with you today.
Not too long ago, in December I went through an incredibly difficult divorce with my second husband and me and my son were kicked out of our home as a result of it. The emotional toll it took on us was immense, but what has hit us even harder was the burden of debt to the tune of $25,000 that remained in its wake and that does not include the property taxes I owe, which are now close to $3,000. As I struggled to rebuild my life and provide for my son, fate threw another curveball our way.
My ex-husband, my son’s father, was diagnosed with lymphoma and leukemia (B-PLL). It felt as if the ground had been ripped out from under us. In that moment, my priorities shifted entirely, and I made a promise to myself and my son to be there for his father, no matter what.
Taking care of my ex-husband has become my full-time responsibility. I have become his primary caregiver, his confidante, and his support system. His battle against this relentless disease is an arduous one, but I remain steadfast in my dedication to his well-being.
As a result, I am unable to pursue a regular hourly job. Our financial resources have been stretched thin, and the weight of it all has been overwhelming at times. To make ends meet, I have resorted to donating plasma and doing odd jobs whenever possible. However, it simply isn’t enough to cover our mounting expenses.
That’s why I humbly reach out to you today, seeking your support and compassion. Your generosity has the power to uplift our lives in unimaginable ways. Your donation can alleviate the financial strain that constantly hangs over our heads, allowing me to devote more time and energy to the care my ex-husband so desperately needs.
Every contribution, no matter the size, will make a significant impact on our lives. It will bring us closer to stability and give us the hope we need to continue fighting, not just for ourselves but for the precious bond between a father and his son.
Life’s challenges have tested us in ways we never anticipated, but they have also revealed the strength within us. Together, we can prove that compassion knows no bounds, and that the human spirit can rise above any adversity.
Thank you from the depths of my heart for taking the time to read my story. Your kindness and support will forever be etched in our hearts. May we all find solace in knowing that, as a community, we have the power to bring light to the darkest of days.
With sincere gratitude, I thank you for your consideration and support.
