Help Us In These Hard Times

On April 28, 2017, my wonderful husband Bill Washington suffered a stroke. We found out that day that not only did he have A stroke, he had 6 mini strokes! As a result, Bill has suffered vision loss, balance issues, confusion and mild aphasia. He was a driver by trade and can no longer drive. I immediately applied for EI but his claim ran out in August. Ontario Works has denied us and ODSP may take up to 6 months to make a determination on Bill's case. It's getting harder and harder to buy food and household items. We are at risk of having our utilities cut off, losing our only car and we are behind on rent. The kids really need warm clothing   Or hurts my soul to think about how Christmas will be for Madison and Bryce. If anyone can help, we would be forever grateful.
