Keep the van rollin' for the Leonards

Hi all, thank you for stopping by and considering helping!

There are a lot of factors that are going into this but the main point is: we need help getting a few payments for our van. We're behind on about 2-3 payments at this point.

This is because my parents are having to shut down their business in Arkansas in order to permanently move here to Kansas so we can assist them with caring for my Mom who has progressing dementia. They were the ones paying for the van but for now, their current income is cut down to about 1/4 of what they used to bring in. It's been a hard process getting all that done on their end and that's why the payments have lagged.

This van is our only reliable vehicle. We use it for everything from running errands, picking up groceries, but most importantly is getting myself and my husband Paul's 91-year-old Dad to our doctor appointments. As many of you know, this amounts to a lot of driving (especially on my part because most of my specialist doctors are in Kansas City which is a 3-hour round trip each time). I have a lot of doctors and a lot of appointments. I have surgery coming up and I get medical IVs every month. This requires a lot of follow-up appointments.

Without this vehicle, I honestly don't know how we would survive. We live in a rural town and everywhere important is at minimum a 30-minute drive. Our limited income situation on our part as well as both sides of our family makes this a situation where we have no choice but to reach out to others for help.

Please, whatever you can give, it would be a BIG help. Thank you so much for your consideration.
