Thank you for taking the time to read my letter I appreciate it very much. I wanted to reach out to you because I think you can help me out. My name is Chanetta Smith, am a 40 year old single mother of two boys and I am also raising a little girl because her mother doesn’t want hardly anything to do with her. I am living on a minimum income so I am working. Since I been on my own I been raising my kids alone without any financial help from family. I have never done anything like this before and honestly I hate having to reach out to strangers asking or I feel like I begging for help. I understand you don’t know me but what I am telling you is true and I can send you everything you need to show proof of what I am saying is true. February 2018 I started experiencing shortness of breath and fluid around my heart. I went to the doctor and they told me I had an enlarged heart and my heart was beating at 17%, and I was on the verge of having a massive heart attack. As you can imagine all I could think of was my kids growing up without their mother. The doctor put me on a very strict plan and I have to take about 6 pills a day. In July 2018 I had to have a defibrillator put in so I will be able to live a long life and be here with my kids. While going through this I have accumulated a lot of medical bills which has caused me to fall behind on my regular bills. I live paycheck to paycheck and half the time I don’t even get through the month before I am broke. I have to drive an hour to work there and a hour back so I have to fill my gas tank up, also I’m not even able to put money on my kids account at school so most of the time they have to eat vegetable trays until I get paid. My oldest son graduates and it’s sad that I can’t really do anything for him to celebrate his graduation. I behind on my light bill which is $1145.00, we don’t have groceries in our house so I bring stuff from my job. I work for a university and I use my meal account which has $200 on it but that also comes out my paycheck which lowers my monthly check. I feel like I’m drowning in so much debt that I’m suffocating and don’t know where to turn. I can’t get a loan because I have all these student loans that I’m not able to pay. If there is any way possible that you can help with anything I would be so grateful. When I totaled my expenses that I’m behind it’s over $10,000 but if you find it in your heart to at least send $10,000 I will be so happy. I wish that I could take my kids somewhere special so we can actually say we had a family vacation but I cannot even afford that. I know I don’t need to stress and worry about my situation because it puts a strain on my heart but I cannot help it. Please pray that my situation changes and my heart gets better. Thanks for reading my letter.
