Chasing the light
Organized by: Kellea Ray
I, like so many others today, am a single parent of an amazing 6 year old. I've worked in healthcare for 25 years. A job loss 3 months ago has left me in financial ruins. No family as I am an only child and I lost both of my parents to cancer. My emergency fund was not anything that it should have been and each week brought me into a hole from which had became so deep I had lost the light. With no government assistance I was fortunate to have a couple wonderful friends who helped me as much as they could or I would allow. I got two new jobs. One in an outpatient clinic that was scheduled to open in October but due to construction delays will not open until December. In the mean time I got a home health job which was atleast feeding us. Then my car overheated and it turns out the headgasket is blown. I am begging in essence for most importantly the $1500 to fix the blown head gasket. But also I am 2 months behind on my rent and am truly for the first time fearful my son and I will end up on the street. If I could atleast get the head gasket fixed I could continue to work. Anything would help. I pray, With God's will and my will things will work out.
