Thomas Burrell / Post cancer homelessness

Organized by: Thomas Burrell

THE STORY:

In 2009, I went bankrupt, got foreclosed on by Wells Fargo & their predatory loan deals. During the same time I was also getting divorced due to infidelity. I moved to Portland to live with my cousin & his family trying to make a new start, with a new town & a new job within a few days of my arrival. I was feeling confident & decided to trade in my worn out pickup truck for a reliable vehicle. Then shortly after this decision, my life took a nose dive again. I received my medical insurance through my employer & went to treat myself to a check up on my birthday, a couple days later I received news from my Doctor that I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. I told my employer about my recent diagnosis & was terminated for an undetermined reason.I started chemotherapy and post chemotherapy maintenance,whilst dealing with employment issues, fatigue & nausea and trying to find stable lodging. I was able to get into an apartment for about 2 years until absences from work due to cancer related issues resulted in yet another job termination.I'm currently homeless and using all available $$$ for motel rooms & have used all my available credit as well . I almost hesitate to ask for help ,but I'm not ashamed to say I need help & a solid foundation to build off of . Any assistance would be greatly appreciated & any $$ left over paid forward / returned. I do hope for some response & hopefully an answer to this dismal existence. Thank you in advance. thomasj.burrell@gmail.com

It gets better. Peace and love. Wish I could help more. I really do. See how my tips are next week sweets. I'm glad you asked for help. I'd have felt so bad if I found out later that you needed friends and I wasn't there to help. I'll be in touch. 1 year ago
