Recently, my partner, Nici, and I moved back to Tulsa so she could look at getting on disability. Neither of us are particularly able to work, though I am building a writing career. Due to various financial issues, neither of us have been able to get certain medical issues taken care of and on top of that, my van is starting to fall apart from age.
We need help in order to get a new car and get our medical issues taken care of. We don't really have anyone to count on to help with these things. The most immediate need is the car. I've found a few good vans around town, with one in particular looking like the best option.
After that, we both need dental work. I need a second tooth extracted and a bridge to cover the spot. The first one came out in September and the gum is starting to erode. Nici needs her wisdom teeth out. She's also in severe need of a tonsillectomy.
We're hoping to reach $27,000 but if we get less, we'll make the best use of it we can. The tonsillectomy and the car are the most expensive aspects. We're trying our best to get our lives figured out and become self-sufficient but it's taking time. I'm the only one of us that can drive, as well, and until my van started dying, I was supposed to help out in our living situation by driving other people to work. Having the car also makes getting Nici to the doctor to work on a disability claim easier.
We are utterly appreciative of any and all help offered and if you're unable to donate, sharing helps too. It's difficult to be hopeful lately, but we're holding on. Thank you.
