After a long month of phone calls, e-mails, paperwork, and snowstorms...
We have successfully refinanced our home and have made our first payment- a new beginning thanks to all of you!
I am planning to have our celebration in May, but a date has not been set. This party means a great deal to me because our home is meant to be shared and enjoyed. There will be some special guests as well!
I will be sending out online invitations to the celebration so please contact me if you are planning on coming out :) here are two ways to get in touch...

Thank you, everyone, for your overwhelming generosity and kindness.
"The $40K goal on the GoFundMe page would allow us to bring the loan payments into a manageable, sustainable range," Scott told Yahoo News. "Obviously, the ultimate goal is to completely pay off the loan, but right now we are asking for help because our entire situation became jeopardized with the most recent rejection from the bank."
The goal my dad and I have set WILL be reached. Your support has assured that- I'm watching the bar fill up every second!
And with this goal met, we will be able to save our home.
But what if I could make my father's dreams come true and pay off the house entirely?
The goal for that Cinderella story is roughly $140,000 (including the 40k goal).
Let's see how far we can take this and perhaps we can finally own our home free and clear.
I have never been so excited in my entire life. thank you, everyone!
with all of my love, from the bottom of my heart-
My childhood home, the only true heirloom my family possesses, is in foreclosure.
My family and I have been struggling to make ends meet for the past 6 years but all of our hard work was not enough.
Our hardship began when my mother became terribly sick about 7 years ago. Her chronic illness was unexpected. And as if that were not troubling enough, my father's longtime career in the construction industry had taken its toll on him physically, mentally, and emotionally. His longtime company threw him to the side like a broken toy.
My mother was sick, my father was broken. We were all broke.
After a 5 year ordeal that put myself, my brother and my father through emotional turmoil and financial ruin...
My father still struggled to get work...
and my mother, Julia... passed away just as she seemed to be getting healthier.
Her passing has broken our hearts and took away my father's true love. Our family has been devastated.
I have realized we cannot do this ourselves. My father is a very proud man and he would never ask for a handout, he has worked hard his entire life. I love my dad, he is my best friend... and I want to do anything I can to help him- even if that means swallowing pride and asking for help.
Our home is at 315 Morsetown Road, West Milford NJ. My father has given all of his effort, his body and soul, towards saving the house that means so much to our family.
This really is our last chance. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
With hope and love,
Charles Philip DeCesare
P.S. Even if we do not achieve the listed goal, any substantial amount of funding could very well improve our relationship with the bank, possibly resulting in lower payments or halting the foreclosure.
