Health and Living Situations

Hi everyone! I don’t like to share my life this way and I really did not want to have to start a gofundme, but I'm seriously out of options am in dire need of financial help right now.  Am destitude! I need $1,000.00 right now for my car (being repo'ed, no car insurance and my driver's license is suspended). 

Life can be full of ups and downs as we all know and I have sure had my knocks recently for the past years. I have been trying to find administrative/office work with no results (due to my age). I am trying to continue 2 Saturdays a month doing hair as a hairstylist (that’s not paying the bills), but due to my medical issues I can’t work much longer.  I keep praying and searching for work (daily) in an office setting so I can get off my feet.

On February 23rd, I was admitted to the hospital for 5 days for an Ischemic Colitis, second time. I was bleeding from the Colon for days. The doctors said that parts of my colon had died (necrosis), and need surgery soon, which will keep me from working.  Also, I had to be taken off ALL my pain meds (which kept me on my feet, working and daily activities per my back and fibromyalgia issues). Now my body is in constant pain. Besides my colon surgery, I am also looking for additional 2 back surgeries (fourth time). This will take me off of work as well.  I meet with the GI doctor on Monday and the back surgeon yhe following week.

Any donations will help towards my basic necessities to support my daily life. Such as gas money, rent payments, groceries, utilities. Due to not working; my car is being repossessed due to no car insurance and my driver’s license was suspended as well. I am in fear that I will lose my car, my home, everything I have, as I have $75.00 to my name.  I have tried agencies, ran out of options there too.

I am eager to get back to work as a hairstylist (limited time) and also be employed as an administrative assistant, but most likely won't be able to anytime soon.

Please help in anyway, no amount is too little. If you could find it in your hearts to help with a financial gift of any amount it would be a true Blessing. Thank You for taking the time to read my story.  Keep me in your prayers as well. God Bless You!
