Broke my arm

Friends and Family, 

Would it be ok to ask for help at such a time as this? I am the sole provider for my one income family. We are faced with excessive Medical Bills from an injury I sustained having “ fun and spending time” roller skating with our children.

I need to continue to keep a roof over our heads and the bills paid while accruing all this Medical Emergency costs. I cannot work to generate income for an undetermined amount of time  because my hand is healing after undergoing surgery to reattach the wrist to my arm bones. 

My my wife is giving birth to our fourth child in days now and she also cannot help to create income to cover any living expenses or medical bill payments. 

We are are the type of people who never ask for help, but provide it for others instead. We are asking for help at this time in our lives because we want to be humble and say “ We don’t have what it takes to fix the situation we are in” if we don’t have support we cannot make it out of this crisis. 

Thank you you for considering generously giving to help us overcome financial crisis from Medical Costs and we are so grateful as a family to anyone who is in a position to financially help us when we can’t help ourselves. 

God Bless You,
