Hello. My name is Daryl, I'm 62 years old. I hate to Impose on You , but do to Circumstances Beyond My Control, I'm Forced to Beg for Your Help . A Quick Synopses, of the Adversity's ,I have had to Overcome , Only to be left at this point of Begging for Your Help. Back in1971, Tired of never knowing how long we would be able to live in the old homes we rented . My Mother, Brother and I, pooled our money together , for the Mortgage on this House. All was fine,until 1995, when some nasty things began to happen,as my Brother passed away. Flash Forward to 2014 My Mother was Diagnosed with Breast and Bone Cancer ,early 2013 , She was in Remission early 2014, but something else bad happened and she passed away. Meanwhile ,I was headed home, after being away a long time. But ended up in the Hospital,with Internal Bleeding . Upon Release from the Hospital . Finely arriving Home ,to which I'm the last living person, on that Shared Mortgage Contract. Only to find it Robbed, Moving Van Stile. My Aunt ( who drove me home from the Hospital ) and I , Reported this to the Police. But they wouldn't do anything about it. My Aunt and I asked , " OK , What's Going On Here?" They sad it's a Family Matter, and if you keep pushing the issue , We'll put you both under arrest . We spent the night in a Motel ,the next day we got the Utility's turned back on ,then got food and supply's for me . At Dusk ,my Aunt dropped me off at the house,and went back home,while I found two sofa cushions and an old sleeping bag to make a bed.The next morning,I had a bite to eat,then checked around the house to see what damage was done. While I was in the Laundry room, I heard water running under the house . As I was down there turning off the water valve, I noticed the Wires to the Dryer were stuffed inside a wall in such a way, that if I had reset the breaker, they would have Shorted out, and set the house on Fire. I repaired that damage,and looked for more but didn't find any. While having to Recover from this to , still in a Deep State of Grief. Over the next few months, I had to Reestablish the Mortgage and Insurance and such, in my name only. ( These were stolen to.) While looking for Work ,but only getting part time jobs. Barely making it , I tried to start a small Home Business with the help of my Uncle ,for extra money ,that would have worked , but was Overwhelmed by the Hospital Bills and the greatly increased Winter Power Rate ,that put it on hold . Still Grieving , and now Fighting Back the Thought of Suicide , I had to get some kind of a loan. I tried to get an Equity Loan but couldn't because of the part time jobs. This was the case with every other loan I tried to get. As a last ditch effort ,I Pawned my Pickup,but lost it,now I have no Transportation. The Bills caught up to me ,as my home went into Foreclosure. Being Forced into early Retirement, I was Finley able to apply for Social Security and Food Stamps. ( This Relay Sucks ) I would rather be working. If I could have had the Social Security 9 months earlier , I would not be in this situation now and the home business would have been running. So as I stand now, My Home is in the last month of Foreclosure Finality (11 Days) . I need to come up with $ 45,000.00 to stop it. Broken down, $32,000.00 to payoff Mortgage and $2,000.00 Tax,that just came due, $11,000.00 Hospital Lean . So I have no choice but to apply here and keep on searching. Thank You '
