The Story

Hello and welcome,
This page is to try to raise money for my husband and I. He is disabled, and can no longer work; and I have a bad back, and cannot work either, but have been denied disability. We struggle to make ends meet from month to month, trying to manage on just his disability check. But it is very hard, especially with how prices have doubled and tripled over the last several years.

Fortunately he is now cancer free, but we have debts from 2011. Some of the debts are credit cards that we had to default on because we could not keep up the payments. A great many of them are medical bills that we just cannot pay. We barely make ends meet as it is. There are so many things we can't afford, and we have no extra money for unexpected expenses.

For example, we drive a car that is over 20 years old. My husband desperately needs dental work, and new dentures, as well as glasses. We have no extra money for unexpected things. We could use new living room furniture as well. If you can help, I do hope that you will; and if you can’t, then perhaps you could share this with someone who can. Thank you for visiting and reading this.

Thanks go out to Connie and Betty, whose help came at a much needed time. We were sitting here trying to figure out what we would cut from our sparse shopping list. Now we can go out and buy the food we need.

We are officially through with food stamps. Their changed rules make it where if we did get back on, we wouldn't stay qualified for long; so we've chosen to pursue other things. I can't work at a regular job, but am going to pursue getting a virtual services work started.

Well, just did some editing to this fundraiser. It has become even more important to us now. We were managing to get by, barely, with hubby's disability and food stamps. But we've just went through a 2-1/2 month process of trying to renew our food stamps, only to be kicked off food stamps altogether. To read more about that, please visit this link.
