Please help us through health issues

Hello all and thank you very much for taking the time to read our story and consider helping us.


We started this in November. At the time, we were due to lose our home, our car insurance, electricity, etc. We were able to meet our goals and got all of the above paid off just in time and paid for most of December's living expense bills as well.


We are back in the same predicament due to me still being unable to work...and then to add on to my issues, my husband struggled with a stubborn kidney stone and missed a few weeks of work which really put a damper on things and set us back right where we were in November.


So, here we are now again...begging for your help. January is days away...and February is right around the corner. I hope to be better by February, but if not, at least we will be receiving our taxes then and my husband's hours will also be picking up at the point. Our need is for help to get us through the next 2 months until we can stay afloat ourselves. We are both hard working good people, but have fallen on hard times due to a number of circumstances...my health being the primary downfall. We do not live extravagantly. In fact, we rent a very small condo. Our furnishings are mostly second hand..as well as our clothes. Our car is a 1994 and on the brink of dying. But, we have struggled to come this far. We put everything we had into moving back to our beach. The Northern cold was not good for my asthma, etc. It would just crush and destroy us to lose everything. The thought of taking my family to a shelter kills me. So, we put aside our pride and are asking for any and all help we can get...donations(every penny counts), sharing our story with others to spread the word to others who may be able to help and of course all the prayers we can get.


A brief summary of my health issues(you can message me for details of the health issues or any other part that you would like to know more about...attempting to keep this at a quick read length)...rough pregnancy, c section, 3 months of bed rest for post partum preeclampsia, emergency tachycardia event that landed me in the ER...the Dr gave me a medication that you are not supposed to give to people with asthma and I woke up days later on life support, heart ablation surgery and they are still working on the worst of the symptoms which they think are due to an adrenal gland imbalance...which usually means there is a tumor on the adrenal gland. It has been a long time since I have been able to properly function let alone work with all of these issues back to back. We did our best to stay afloat on just my husband's wages, but with his hours being cut at the end of summer...it became impossible.


So, here we are now. Please help us in any way you are able. I realize that there are many scams out there and many people are uncomfortable with making donations in this manner. I assure you we are a real family with a real problem and really need your help. I am willing to give you any info you need to ease your mind and prove that we and all of this information is genuine. Message me if you have any questions.


I would also like to let all of you know that our issues are temporary. When we are back on our feet, we will be paying forward all donations that we receive. Thank you and God bless!
