Work Transportation

Next year I will be 70 and still work part-time as a medical interpreter to compliment my retirement income. It's no secret how difficult finding work is at any age, though I'm lucky because my language skills are still optimal and my health outstanding thanks to daily exercise (I swim half a mile every day) and sensible eating habits. 

My reason for appealing to your generosity is that I will soon have to return a car lease I contracted 3 years ago when I was still making enough money to pay for it. I use the car to travel to hospitals, nursing homes and doctor's offices to translate (interpret) for Spanish speakers who cannot communicate proficiently with administrators, doctors and nurses.

With the money I am hoping to raise, I could buy a small used car which will most likely need few repairs and cost little to maintain, and continue working for as long as my age and health permit.

The gofundme instructions suggest to tell you what your support will mean to me. It's easy. it will mean having the right tool to continue working and producing. Perhaps equally important, it will mean I'm not alone and hopeless. 

Thank you for your generosity.
