For those of you that don't, know my husband gave over a decade of his life working for a company that ultimately hurt so many. Not just financially, but emotionally as well. They shut their business down, made promises to pay for medical needs that should have been paid months earlier, and swore they would pay my husband his final paycheck. Not only did they fail to pay him, each and every day we're treated to a new medical bill that should have been paid. We are not looking to pay off this old medical debt, we are not looking for a way out. That is up to us. What we're looking for is help with our basic needs. We're looking for a chance to start with a clean slate instead of facing old utility bills that snowballed out of control and our rent.
Since January we have had to stretch our extremely limited funds by putting off what we could, making payment arrangements and so on, but we have finally reached that point where there are no more arrangements that can be made. They just have to be paid within the next week. So here I am asking for help. Humbling myself and hoping that some of you out there can help keep a roof over our heads, the lights, the water, and the gas on.
Had my husband been given his last check we would have never had to start this chapter of our lives in the negatives, but that's not what happened and once you're behind everything snowballs. Our snowball is now a white out.
Regardless of whether or not you can help, please know that we are so very grateful for those friends and family that have and/or tried to help us along the way.
