Hello, my name is Kari Slaunwhite, I am a 42 year old married mother of two teenagers , a daughter who is 17 and a son who is 13. Please know that before I get started explaining my dire situation, I want everyone to know that this is the last thing in the world that I wanted to do, having to ask for help for something that I should be able to accomplish myself takes a real hard toll on my heart. My story actually starts from 1998, when my husband suffered a massive Aterio Venous Malformation ( Stroke ) when he was just 26 years old. They didn't think he would survive but miracles happened and he did, not without leaving him a left sided hemeplegic. He was a dedicated worker before this but since this, he hasn't been able to work at all due to his severe disability . He struggled for many, many years to get his Canada pension but due to his certain amount of his contributions not being within a certain time frame, he was denied every single time. He fought for roughly fifteen years before he just finally gave up, he just didn't have it in him to fight anymore for something he knew he would never get. Unfortunately, we had to live with the assistance from Social Services, which we were very grateful but once our children were old enough, I myself went to work. It was just the right thing to do. I was doing everything I had to do to be sure we made ends meet and get our rent paid but March 2016, my husband got very Ill and was admitted to the hospital, leaving me to have to miss work. Since that time, I have got behind in our rent and I haven't been able to catch up since, no matter how hard I try. Now this is where my plea comes in, which is extremely hard for me to put out there. We just recently got a letter from our landlord explaining to us that if we didn't have a substantial amount paid on our rent by Sept. 30th, 2016, that they were giving us an eviction notice to vacate. ( we owe $1631.49) If this happens, im not exactly sure where we will end up. I feel as though I have failed my family. I ask that you please don't put judgment on me as I am already hard enough on myself. Thanks so much for taking the time to read my plea for help, that alone is enough to warm my heart & please remember, every little bit helps! ❤
