For the last three years life has been a steady downward spiral. I am a single mother of two awesome little girls ages 3 and 6, and since my divorce we have never been able to get back on our feet. In October of last year, on top of everything else, I was diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis. In the process of medical appointments and adjusting to the way that symptoms of the condition affected my life, I lost my employment. I have no family to turn to for support in this trying time, and the state has not been able to help significantly. I am tired of living day to day and not knowing how I am going to make ends meet. I am trying to reenter the work force but in order to get a job in my area it is essential to have a car. I do not have the money to buy one outright, and I have been denied loans every time that I have applied. The bills are piling up and we are in danger of losing our home. For my daughters, this would be a devastating loss of stability and my family needs a crutch so that I can get our lives back on track. I am ready to work and fight for a better life, but I am met with a wall at every turn. If I can meet my goal and cast off the weight that keeps me down even for an instant, it would mean everything to my daughters and I. Please help my family come back to life.
