My name is Elizabeth. I am a single 28 year old woman. I am not married. I have no children. My father passed away when I was 24. He was unable to leave me anything as we didn’t have much to begin with, and what he did leave, my mother kept for herself although they had been separated for 17 years.My mother has been absent most my life and struggles with bipolar disorder. She is difficult to have a relationship with due to the fact that she does not take her prescribed medications to manage her mental illness.I do not have any family support other than my sister who is not that close to me.
I currently work as a CNA on an oncology unit at a hospital. I have been a CNA for 6 years and always had hopes of working to better myself and become a nurse.
I am currently in school to get a bachelors of science in nursing. I am three months away from graduating and I have put my entire life into this to make a better future for myself, in addition to helping others.
I have not been able to pay my tuition in full due to only being able to work part time and participate in nursing school full time. I have sacrificed a lot in order to work towards the goal of obtaining a BSN. I have ruined my credit in the process. I had to sacrifice and prioritize certain bills in order to ensure I have a room to live in, a car to drive, and food to eat while perusing nursing school full time. I have done the best I can in all aspects.
As you can see from the image I posted, I have a very expensive tuition. I have federal loans I have taken out in addition to financing what was not able to be covered by loans. Tuition options is who I make my tuition payments through.I have been able to make small payments every month on my tuition as you can see in the billing statement.However, the past due amount is now holding me back from continuing and my school will not work with me. I must pay $1500 outright by April 3rd or I am out of the program.
Being 3 months away from graduation, I am so close to finishing. I am so sad, frustrated, and upset that $1500 is possibly holding me back from graduation.
Nursing school is the HARDEST thing I have ever done in my life. I am so close to graduation. I am completely devastated that money is what is holding me back. I am in desperate need of financial assistance.
So please help me. Any donation is greatly appreciated. I have no one to loan me the money. I have awful credit from not being able to pay my bills during this stressful time in school. I do not have a co-signer for a loan. I am $1500 away from a changed life. You would literally help change my entire life and I would forever be grateful.
