Need a Lifeline

Friends....this is as uncomfortable for me to post as it is for you to read...

Recent cascading events have left me in the most difficult financial straights I have ever experienced. The premature cancellation of a lucrative consulting contract just prior to the new year, coupled with health problems that have rendered me unable to work a full schedule for the last two months have finally brought me to the financial tipping point.  For those of you who don't know, I have been delivering pizzas since the first of the year to (barely) make ends meet. In this period my heart and blood pressure meds have gotten out of whack - forcing me to lose 1-2 shifts per week. My health insurance has been cancelled, and I have just experienced my car being repossessed, a first for me. As a result, it looks like I owe the full late balance @ $1428.00+, as well as various past due utility, insurance and car repair bills that added together get to the total goal.

I honestly can provide no time frame for re-payment, but can offer my commitment to use every penny shared to right this course.

Your help in this difficult time is greatly appreciated.
