Yokiel Family Medical Bill Mess

Medical bills have strangled what was once a well functioning family, and living has become a struggle to find enough income to both stay healthy and pay bills.

Living with a family of four on the income of one person is difficult enough, but the stress and financial strain of medical issues beyond our family's control have begun to make life harder and harder.

A hard working mother tries her best to hold things together, working a full time job and regularly taking up part time work in an effort to keep afloat, but with a father who can't work due to existing medical conditions, a son going to university and a daughter plagued by medical issues that no doctor as of yet has been able to diagnose, it only gets more and more difficult as time goes on.

Things like doctor's and dentist appointments that would once be urgent have had to be put on the back burner, leaving family members oftentimes miserable.

Worse yet, one of our feline friends, Tiggy, has to deal with diabetes, leaving us needing to purchase needles and insulin.

All we'd really like is the ability to stay healthy and continue living until life turns around for the better. It takes a lot of effort to let go of one's pride and ask for help like this, but watching your family suffer becomes impossible to bear after so long.

Every little bit helps, and we know that life is hard for everyone else as well, so anything is greatly appreciated. Even if all you can do is keep our family in your thoughts, thank you.
