In Need Of Affordable Home

Dear Friends,
Thank you in advance for your love, consideration, generosity and support as I attempt to avoid becoming homeless.  

On June 19, 2014, I fell face down on my belly on the way into my office building.  By noontime, I was calling Ask-A-Nurse about the excruciating pains I was having and was told to go to the ER by way of ambulance.  I waited until my shift was over at 5p, drove myself to the ER, got scanned, was found to have ruptured a tumor I didn't know I had and was discoverered to have other spots later identified as Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer which had already metastasized.

Since that time, I have undergone one round of chemo and am on the second round.  I went back to work after the first round but I am now unable to work at my previous position due to medical issues.  This results in my being unable to afford current rent prices which have increased 10% each year of my tenancy.  My current lease expires July 01, 2017; I may be able to keep my rental agent at bay until August 01 but I am packing to move.  

I am looking to purchase a nice mobile home in a Senior Mobile Home Park.  This purchase will keep me from having to worry about rent increases, sleeping in my car, etc.  The price for the unit I am interested in will end up being around $60,000, substantially less than senior condos.  These homes are cash purchases and I am out of money

Nobody, but especially one who is terminally ill, should have to worry about becoming homeless.  Again, I thank you for your help in making the sunset of my life bearable and for helping keep a roof over my head.

Thanks again for your support; please feel free to share my story with your friends. <3
