My greatest wish is to spend my last few years I have left in my little apartment spending time with my grandchildren.
life has many struggles I spent most of my life raising my children and taking care of my sick mother we struggles with those but we managed okay I was always grateful and thankful for what we had and for my loving family, even when times were toughwe loved each other and we may do and we were happy.
but when my mom passed away of kidney failure in 2016 we lost our house or 25 years now I find myself alone and in a desperate situation I eventually found an affordable apartment I’ve been here for almost 3 years unfortunately my health has deteriorated immensely I need a third heart surgery my lungs are in really bad shape I need to use oxygen most of the time I also need three to four breathing treatments a day needless to say I’m overwhelmed and very afraid of my future. I am no longer able to go out and earn money for food toiletries and household items my disability check pays for my rent but nothing is left over I am no longer able to go around to the food pantries now that I’m usually attached to my machines, I’ve reached out to many government programs with no avail I can’t seem to qualify for anything unless I’m homeless which is what I fear will eventually happen to me. I can’t afford a lot of the medication I need I’m so overwhelmed and scared and I don’t know where to turn in anymore I’ve started to lose all hope I was very embarrassed and ashamed to put my story out there and ask for help it’s not something I’m proud of but my friend who told me about this program assured me that people who donate to these causes want to help people like me going through hard time so I agreed to write about my situation. I was hoping to raise $4,000 to pay for months rent I would be able to make that money loves me over a year and I would have benchley be able to start making and selling crafts again after I recover from my heart surgery.
My rent is due today and I’m afraid to pay it because I won’t have money for food or medication yet I don’t want to be late with my rent in fear of being evicted.
to be able to stay in my apartment for a few more years would mean the world to me I’d be able to spend time with my grandchildren without any help I really don’t know what will happen with my life and where I will go I wish I was able to get some help through the state but that hasn’t worked out for me. any help would be greatly appreciated even any information on resources in Orange county California feel free to email me with any information you think might help.
I’d like to think anyone in advance who thinks my cuz might be worth donating to I will forever be grateful I know this might be a long shot but I’m praying for a miracle.
Thank you and God bless
