Family Hardship

Well, as demeaning as it may be, it's time I set my pride aside. Since my wifes diagnosis or Mast Cell Activation Syndrome it's been an ongoing battle. It's day to day with her. I worked for the same company for a while, supporting my family. A few months ago, they placed me on leave for a month, so I could take care of my wife and figure out where she stood health wise. When I returned to work, everything got harder. My job didn't have affordable health care and very little resources, so I started looking into other careers with better health insurance for my wife (even considered joining the military). I got word the plumbers union was hiring so, I went and applied, got a call back on got a test date!.... But that test date required me to call out of work to be able to take this test, so I did... I passed my test on 12/22 and then was dismissed from my job Christmas Day. On the bright side, I have an Interview date set for 1/9/17, down side is I have no way to keep a roof over my families head. So, I started this gofundme as a way to reach out and ask for help. I need help getting through one more month, opportunity is right around the corner. My family would greatly appreciate any help possible and understand if you can't. Thank you for taking the time to hear my story.
