Becky's Kids Need a New Home

On February 10th 2017, my oldest son Thomas passed away due to acute asthma exasperation. I was driving him to the emergency room, like we had a hundred times before. He was sitting in the backseat behind me and 2 miles into our drive, I watched him take his last breath. I immediately pulled over and gave him CPR until the paramedics pulled up but I couldn't bring him back. I was holding my son when he passed away. His siblings and our entire family were devastated. He was a shining light in this world and loved by so many. Since then I've struggled with PTSD and had a difficult time functioning and because of that, one year later, I lost my job of 9 years. My employer also held the contract for deed on our family home, the home we've lived in for almost 10 years. Two months after I was fired, my employer had me served with a cancelation of our contract and took me to court. On September 4th, we were evicted and given 15 days to either come up with $55,000 to purchase the home at a discount or be removed from the property by law enforcement. We are coming up on eviction day and our resources are extremely limited as I still have not been able to find employment. I said I would never do something like this but since we have nowhere to go and nobody willing to take us all in temporarily, I am frantically trying to get up enough money for moving expenses, damage deposit, first and last month's rent and a U-Haul. I will forever be grateful to anyone who could donate and help my family. Thank you.
