Back To Florida We Go

Everyone knows how we have been struggling financially since moving back up north to Pennsylvania last summer. Not only financially but health wise, moving back up here taken a serious toll. We have discussed at length and decided that it is in our best interest to return to Florida. The reasons why are numerous. 1st, since leaving FL and Wyatt's endocrinologists in Orlando his blood sugars and A1C levels have been completely unregulated no matter how his endos up here have tried to control it. We both truly believe getting him back to the doctors that treated him at his diagnosis and got him regulated initially would be beneficial to him. 2nd, While Melissa's fibromyalgia is worsened by the heat, her blood pressure/tias etc have proven the stress of our situation up here is worse then the issues her fibro causes. 3rd, Justin can transfer his position to an Amazon warehouse down there and make more money hourly then he does up here. Also Melissa also spoke with someone at Lyft and she will be able to start working down there as soon as she gets her license and plates switched over. Because she has a high rating with them, she will be able to work on Disney property now that they have a contract with Lyft. The person Melissa spoke with estimated Melissa can clear in 2 days what it takes her a week to make here before fees are taken out. 4th, Struggling financially has placed us in a position where we are not able to give our 3 kids the life we want them to have. We are not able to bring them places to experience the things we want them to or give them the extras over bare necessities they want or deserve. As soon as we are able to get moving expenses together, we are ready to go. The sooner the better at this point. What the moving expenses cover: Moving truck Gas/Tolls for trip Food for trip Tune up for our vehicle to make it to FL (desperately needs 1) First month/Security deposit for new place 30day supply of Wyatt and Melissa meds to cover trip and in-between insurance lapse Hotels for trip down (2 stops) Transfer Melissa license and plates etc We are estimating all to come to around 5000.  So that is what we set our goal at.  Justin is trying to get something from Amazon towards moving costs and if they do give something, our goal will be adjusted or if covered in full, this campaign will be closed. Anything anyone could do to help will be appreciated. Once in a better position, we will pay forward every bit of help we ourselves have received. Thank you for reading this and God Bless You.
