Save my home

While everybody is celebrating this holiday season, I will be struggling to keep my family warm. I buried my beloved mother and best friend the day before Thanksgiving. Two days later, my husband of twenty five years suffered sudden cardiac arrest. He was transported to the hospital, but never regained consciousness. He passed away two days later at the age of 53. The very person I would lean on for support had passed away one short week before.
My husband left behind two young sons and a multitude of medical bills. He was a very kind man who stopped at nothing to help others. He did not know a stranger and was loved by many.
My husband had lived in our house his entire life and took great pride in our neighborhood. Now, with only one income, I am in pre-foreclosure and at risk of losing our cherished home. In addition, I am facing large repair bills for the house fire that broke out that same day as my husband's passing.
There is nothing I want more for Christmas than to keep my home.
