Military widow Of 2 Small Children
My name is Megan and last year my husband was murdered while active duty Army last year on September 24th 2016. I was six months pregnant. The military assured me that they were there to help, and helped me apply for the benefits my children and I were entitled to. I went through the remaining of my pregnancy and even birthed our son alone being as strong as possible. Here we are 15 months after my husbands death and I still have not recieved the benefits for my children. I take side jobs here and there to just try to make ends meet and I recently had a financial emergency situation when an undergound pipe burts at my house and i had to pay the plumber and the 400$ water bill. I have maybe 5$ to my name. I was hoping to give my kids a good Christmas, which is proving to be not an option, my gas is about to get turned off and I have nowhere to turn. I go to churches to get food boxes and once in a while a friend will help and buy me food with food stamps. I contemplated making this go fund me for so long because I hate to ask anyone for anything. However, I am stuck between a rock and a hard place and I figured why not. So if you could find the kindness in your heart to donate, I will forever be grateful! Thank you! Anything will help!
Life has been a roller-coaster, but I am holding on. I am doing the best I can, but since Dany was killed i have been like a lost puppy. Here I am again having to experience raising another child alone, waking up everyday knowing I am the only one these kids have, going through holidays, birthdays and special moments alone,
pushing through it day by day. If it's not one thing it's another, but I still have my head held high and I know im doing all I can.
Please hold your loved ones and tell them you love them and just be genuinely happy, because you never know how much time you have left.
Happy Holidays everyone❤
