Hello. My name is Kim. I feel terrible having to ask for help when these times are so tight for everyone. Ive tried all I can to raise money with no luck. Before times got hard I was able to get a charm bracelet from Kays and fully loaded ir. it has some Jane Seymore Open Heart charms on it as well. The total cost was. $1500.00 and I'm giving it to the highest donator. Im giving a 27 in flat screen TV to the second highest donator. its all i have to offer anyone who can help. My husband and I have been married 7 years and its been 7 years of heartache in both of our lives. 19 yrs ago my husbands 1st wife passed away at home and my husband was left to raise their 2 children alone. He never dated and gave his life to God . When we met, both our children were grown and on their own by that point and we fell in love instantly. Not long after we married, my Grandmother, who was there my whole life for me, became sick. She was transfered over a 2 year period to several hospitals and nursing homes. I stayed by her side every minute and was her only caretaker other than medical staff. I slept in her rooms and took care of her to try to keep from bothering the nurses so often. The last place she was sent to was a nursing home who did not allow family members to stay over night. It turned out they had been abusing her and as a result she passed away. I felt lost without her, not knowing who I was without her in my life. We had just finished building a bedroom and handicap bath onto our home just for her. Within months, my 17 year old committed suicide. His mother had no money so we financed his burial as well. Within 5 months of him passing, my oldest daughter found my Mother had passed in her sleep unexpectedly and she had no insurance so we paid for her burial as well. 1 month later, my Husband's mother passed away from cancer the doctors had just discovered weeks prior to her death. One day I fell down our stairs hurting my back. After tests were run, I was diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome. It hit me hard and fast. I became weak and some days could not even walk. My husband began working double shifts and over time to make my copays and pay for specialists and medications. I had a lot of tests run because the doctors knew little about the syndrome. Its rare,, effecting 4 million people in the world and there is no cure. He was hardly home due to working, I couldn't get out of bed, he would get home at midnight and fix dinner, shower and be in bed by 2 and have to wake up again at 445 to get ready for work. After a year of this he became sick and formed a limp. He hasnt said anything to anyone out of fear he will lose his job but suffers daily with the pain. Due to my medical bills we became behind on bills. We are 2 payments behind and 1 payment has built enough interest to almost equal 2. They will seize our home at 3 payments behind. If we can get caught up on the house we will be able to catch up the smaller bills. I am only asking for just enough help to help us do that so we aren't put on the streets. We have no one to go to that is in the position to help us. We have had to beg for food just to eat lately and we used to be able to donate to Feed More monthly so its hard for us to take from anyone when we have always been ones to give and to help. We have been left with no other choice. I understand these are hard times on so many and I feel quilty having to ask and I am so sorry. Thank you for any amount your possibly able to help with. May God bless you tenfold for it.
