Hello everyone, 
My name is Will English and a very dear friend of mine needs help. My friend's name is Luna, and her family of three are at risk of losing their home. Her husband has been unable to work due to a debilitating back injury for which he is undergoing treatment. This has put the family in financial turmoil since he was their only source of income. Sadly, Luna suffers from PTSD , agoraphobia, and severe depression, which makes it difficult for her to interact with the outside world. Having been a victim of abuse at an early age she finds it difficult to trust people. She has been undergoing treatment for several years now with very little progress. This makes it difficult for her to leave the home or find work. She is currently in the process of trying to obtain assistance. However, this has proven to be a lengthy process with no immediate relief in sight. I fear that this stressful situation may cause her to harm herself. Having attempted suicide in the past this puts her at a higher risk of doing so. 

Fortunately, thanks in large part to the efforts of her Husband, myself, the small number of close friends she has made online and her therapist and the perception medication that said therapist provides, she is not in immediate danger, but the stress and anxiety the situation has caused has compounded the issue to the point that even small things can trigger a suicidal episode. And to make matters worse, they no longer have health insurance, making continued therapy and doctor visits very expensive and soon impossible. Although they have applied for assistance, as stated above, the approval of this aid is very slow and shows no sign of approval anytime soon.       

Sadly, neither I nor any of her close friends can take them in. We all live in different states (and different countries in some cases) and cannot afford the expense of moving them out of State. And if the situation continues as is, they will be forced to move back in with Luna's parents. Something that Luna has said out loud that she would, quote, "Rather die than move back in with my parents."  
Worse still, Luna's main means of outside communication is through Social Media sites like Facebook, and her smartphone (which will cease to function soon) and her parents do not have internet access nor do they have smart devices, and they are never likely to get them. We are afraid that if she loses this connection to the outside world; the worst case scenario may in fact happen.  
 
It's for these reasons that I have set up this page. Every donation made to this campaign will go to them and be used to pay for the help Luna needs, as well as their immediate expenses. They need this money before the end of November to stay in their current housing. However, if this goal cannot be reached within that time frame. Then all donations will be used for Luna's treatment and will also contribute to their efforts to find a new home.  
 
Luna's friendship means the world to me, she's like the little sister I never had. And to see her so unhappy is killing me. I wanna help her in any way that I can, and given the circumstances, this seems to be the best way to do that right now. 
If you all decide to donate then my gratitude will reach into space and beyond. Thank you so much in advanced. 
 
Please, help my little sister.

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of updates, but now I finally have good news. Thankfully, Luna and her family were given a reprieve, thanks to her husband getting a tax return from his previous job. So they could stay in their apartment. But on the heels of that, her husband found a new job. He now works with a company who is contracted with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It was a long road to get there, but I'm happy that he was able to finally find work.

Luna is doing better as well, she is streaming more over on Twitch. I think that this is good for her. It's helping her overcome many of her anxieties and, happily, she's getting quite a following.

I won't be shutting down this campaign just yet, though. Not until I'm sure they are fully on their feet again or they ask me too. So if anyone wishes to still donate, and it is still very much appreciated.

I want to thank again everyone who donated to this and shared this campaign, you have no idea what it means to us that so many were willing to open their hearts and help her out. Kindness and compassion still exist in this world and you all have proven it with your generosity. Thank you all again, so much.

Till next time.

Hey guys, I apologize for the lack of Updates but there has not been anything to update until now. Anyway, I spoke to Luna and well it's not looking good. They may lose their apartment at the end of this month. I have been trying to get this campaign more attention with mixed results. With her Disability still a year away (thanks US government), We still need your help guys. With your continued support, we can help them stay off the streets. Every little bit helps. Thank you all for your continued support.
