Help Us Avoid Eviction!
Organized by: Michelle López
Hello! My name is Michelle. I'm 21, I live with my mom and my cats, and I'm about to finish college. For the past couple of years, my mom has been trying to find a job in order to support us, but has so far been unusccessful. She has applied to several positions, interviewed, fulfilled all requirements, and yet nothing has come out of it. I had a job, too, until my services weren't required anymore, and now I do some freelancing work to afford food and basic services in the house. Situation has gradually become critical, and now we have gotten a couple of months behind in the rent. If we miss another payment we'll be forced to vacate the apartment, and we don't really have anywhere else to go. And now I have also been diagnosed with the beginning of a detached retina in both eyes, which if left unattended can produce total loss of sight. If this happens, I won't be able to continue working to support my family. Unfortunately, at the moment we cannot afford the treatment. What you donate to this cause will ensure we catch up with the rent and get us a few more months until my mom or me can find a stable job. It will also help me undergo the eye treatment, so I can save my vision and go on working. If you help us, you'd be saving lives. And I promise I will find a way to repay you in any way I can. I have tried everything I can think of, and I wouldn't be asking you for help if we weren't really desperate. Thank you.
