Over the past 7 year a series of events have devastated our family at every level; we are hard working, industrious & honest, and have always taken pride in helping anyone in need.
In 2007, we had lost our eldest son of of 24 years. He passed away at our home and was found by our youngest son (15 years old). The subsequent investigation, counseling, etc., had run into the 10’s of thousands of dollars. Even though I lost my wonderful son, the light of my life who I raised from an infant myself, was determined to get my youngest son through this tragedy and finding his own brother and making him understand that we must make the best of life .. and be the example.
On November 2010, my employer terminated my employment without explanation, after 14 years of service . 2 weeks later, I was struck by a hit & run driver while walking, fracturing my skull, neck & back & causing minor brain damage; even though disabled, I continued to look for work, and found it in Nov. 2011; during this time, my wife contracted brain cancer & 2 brain aneurysms, requiring brain surgery in July 2012, and again in November 2012; when I notified my employer of the 2nd surgery, I was promptly terminated. Insurance partially covered the 1st surgery, and my former did not transfer the Cobra paperwork so my wife was not covered for the 2nd surgery which completely wiped out our savings. Since, there has been an additional $195k I have had to borrow to pay the residual medical bills and care, as well as monthly expenses, while consulting and looking for full time employment.
Unfortunately, our money is gone and we have borrowed against every credit line possible, sold everything of value and its down to almost being on the streets now.
I have borrowed from relatives, friends to the point that neither will not even return my calls anymore.
Of course I am looking for work daily, and I am not above doing anything. I know my efforts will all come together very soon for my son, my wife and me and this is only temporary; I have overcome much in my life and will get through this as well. I just need a little help.
Any donation that could be offered I would be extremely grateful.
I set up a Paypal account for any donations.
Thank you & bless you all, especially all of you who are struggling in life. I know it is not easy and my thoughts are always with those who suffer great pain who few ever see or understand. Believe me, I understand.
Life is a gift; the bad things that happen to us only make us appreciate the good even more.
We all get 1 shot at this, and I want to say at the end of my life that I did my very best in the best and worst of times.
No, it is not easy day to day, especially with losing my precious son, who was a wonderful person and my best friend. But I have to believe that we will have our time together when the time comes, and that I am here to make the most of the life I am given, and to take care of my youngest son, who has turned out to be an excellent, almost perfect young man; I still have much to be grateful for, even through all the hard times.
I’m taking a long shot with this one, but for my kids, i am setting my pride to the side. I am currently homeless with two kids. i have been taking my children to different family members home at night so they can be safe, and I have been sleeping in my car because my family feels with being an adult they shouldn’t help. I recently was engaged and made a mistake in trusting someone who took everything from me. I have eaten in three days and I’m sick to my stomach. while I have been sleeping in my car, I was raped, which drove me to the point to try and kill myself. It didn’t work anad I’m still here. I get by through the night by cutting my wrist to sot me frm crying. I am working hard to get another job and a new place for my children. All this is hitting me hard because Its like i lost EVERYTHING within this past week. Im only in my car because I was living out of state, and had to travel back to my hometown where I have no one. All I asking is for a little help to at least pay for hotel stay until I can get another place so I can be safe and have a little type of piece. Please
Hi. I am in the british army but i am struggling with debts of £4000. I am based in Germany and i have a girlfriend back in the UK.

We are a family of four struggling at present time. We just lost our house of 10 years to the bank in April. Moved in with relatives
after we were evicted. Found a rent house in August and really believed we were on track. After we moved in my work of 4 years called
and told me there was no more work and I did not have a job anymore.
A new month is coming and after rent and utility deposits our bank account is empty. I am doing odd jobs while trying to find a job
but is not enough to pay rent and upcoming bills. I do not need to lose another house. Any help is greatly appreciated and thank you
for your time and god bless.
My life here we go, started back in April 2014, my husband cheated on me after being married for 18year but together for 22 years. And on August 16, 2014 he served me with divorce paper and paper to get me out of our home and shut my phone and water off on me. I am suffering with anxiety and depression since I found out about this so bad and being able to sleep. So that evening I on my medication to help me relax, but stupid me took the wrong prescription, I took my depression pills which puts me to sleep. And make matters worst I took a two more to see if it would help that is when I realized I made a big mistake but to late. I when to call for help I could not call for help because my phone shut off. The next thing I remember was waking up in a hospital with scraps and bruise. I apparently got in my car when on a speed chase the 2 counties and 1 local law enforcement offices for 45 minutes or more. some how I drove all over the place and end the chase at my house where I totaled my car to my house, where they rushed me to the 1st hospital then after an 1 hour was rush to a trauma unit where I woke up 3 days later to find out what I did. After I got releases the 1 county arrested me then they released me to next county and the in turn release me to the local police. after all that was done I return to my home to fine my house inside in a wreak my husband while was in the hospital he took all my jewelry my work truck, and all the food he could take and furniture, my money that was in the car and all our savings. Left we me with a pack of lunchmeat and about 6 cans of beans and powder broth. trapped my dogs in the house with a large bag of dog food. and never left them out the smell was unbearable. I have over 17000.00 on tickets and fines plus to get a lawyer for the driving accident 10500.00 for lawyer fees to represent me and if I want a lawyer to help with my divorce another 3500.00. I have no one to help me. The doctor is writing a statement because the dosage I took of the Doxi Pin was a overdose which in turn keep me awake but not aware off any of my action and suicidal to myself at that moment. I was not aware of anything or even remember doing any of that stuff I did. Which believe I still don’t believe that, I know it happened.I was also relieved my job because of the truck he took.I’m in need of food, utility for turn on, and lawyers to represent me. I am begging for anyone to help me and someday I will do the same.Thank You
