Jesse. Gee broken foot

My name is Jesse Gee.  My wife Dawn and I live Kapuskasing ON. We have both always worked.  Dawn lost her 20 year job because of government cutbacks. As a result she did not receive any severance or pension as she was on contract , year to year. She has a part time job now that she loves. Last August I tripped over my two foster cats and broke my foot in 4 places. I was supposed to go back to work the next day. After I went to the fracture clinic, I was told I would be in a cast for 5 months. I almost cried. I had started a new job in June and now could not work. I started receiving sick benefits, but they ran out in November. I have had no income since then.  My foot is not completely healed yet. I cannot stand for extended periods of time. We have applied for social assistance and were denied. We cashed  in what little RRSP we had and payed our rent 2 months in advance. Our rent is due 2 weeks ago and we are sinking. I always took pride in not having to ask for help. It has taken me 2 weeks to write this and still not believing it. Anything at all would help us until we can get back on our feet. Than you for taking the time to read this.
