My son Daniel is a junior at University of Houston. Things have not gone as planned this semester in terms of the payment for his tuition and board. I paid some of the fees and requested a deferment from the school, but as things stand now I would not be able to meet up with the balance of $8,000 needed to complete the payment. My family has been handling the payment of his tuition and boarding until this semester. My family has done everything within our power to scrape up the money without success. My wife went through a big health challenge the last four months that resulted in $420,000 medical bill. But thanks to the insurance company we have which has paid most of the bill. We are faced with with a little over $60,000 to pay and we have made arrangements for monthly payments. Our daughter started as a college freshman this semester as well, and we are doing our best to keep up with her tuition and board in addition. Things have been very tough despite all the efforts my family is making to keep expenses under control. This is the first time I am reaching out to the public for help because my family has incurred a lot of debt already. As things stand now, it is either I pay the outstanding balance to enable our son continue his education and be able to register for Spring 2024 while we make arrangements for next semester’s tuition and board or he may be forced out. At this time I don’t know what else to do than reach out to well-meaning individuals to come to my family’s rescue. I will so much appreciate this much needed help as my family gets over this present financial hurdle. Thank you.
