My 1st husband died when I was 27 yrs old & I was left with my daughter 18 months at the time & my son 3 yrs old. I met another man & fell in love but he died when I was 30 yrs old. Then at age 37 I had health issue & surgery. Also my daughter broke her arm at the age of 10. By the time she was 13 her hand was turning in & she could not use 2 of her fingers. She had surgery & then 3 more surgerys by the time she was 18 yrs old. She is 27 yrs old now & is on pain meds & still does not have full use of the hand. She is in pain most of the time. She just moved in with me after she had a car accident & lost her job. I work 6 days a week 40 to 50 hrs. I don't make much but keep trying to pay all the bills. I just went threw a devorce. My husband after 10 yrs left me because I got cancer last yr. I went threw the surgery & treatment. So far I am good. But the last yr has been very hard & stressful . my son moved in about 6 months ago after he lost his job. He has been unable to get work & has no income coming in. He lost his license for not having car ins. That he couldn't afford looking for a job. I just took my step daughter in a month ago. She left her girlfriend after 4 yrs because of abuse. She just got a job she walks to. But it is very little money. I am at the point of having my electric turned off & have no heating oil for the winter. I have many medical bills I owe & lost my health care at my job. I go without some of my meds so we can have something to eat. I try not to eat much. & I am now 96 lbs. I am stressed & worried all the time & try hard to work as many hrs as I can but my job is physically demanding. I had both my shoulders done & don't have full use of them. I may need to get the one done again but can't. I just can't afford time off. So I am on pain meds all the time now too. My car needs brakes & I just can't do them now. I put in what I can just for gas to get to work & home. I was left with a lot of bills from my marriage because they were in my name to start with. I wish things were not this bad & hope & pray they get better. All we can do is keep trying. This is the 1st time in my life I feel helpless . both my parents are gone & I have no family but my kids. There father side have all past away. I make just enough not to get help but I can't seem to make it on the little I do make because of my dedt from my health & devorce . hoping that something good comes from this my telling my story. I just have to keep smiling & look forward in life no matter how hard it is. I don't want the kids to give up.

HELP PEOPLE, assistance: Hardships are not easy any way you look at it but when the hardship affects the whole

Hardships are not easy any way you look at it but when the hardship affects the whole family that's when it become problemsom. I try not to let myself get discouraged in all the closed door iI have found recently when looking for resources for my mother with stage 4 cancer or myself as her caretaker. We have surgeries back to back procedures all to remove tumors but to do nothing to help more from coming back we seem to cut them out as fast as they pop up weekly it is exhausting all our finances, and we have looked for local community funding they are out of funding for mom and their isn't even programs avalible for caregivers in my area. Just like the death of my father last year to Sarcoma Cancer has taught me one day it too shall come to pass. If iI keep doing the next right thing to do and not let the frustrations of the situation control me iI am able to calmly thing of a better solution more times than not.

I am a wife and mother of the two most beautiful angels God has let fall from heaven. I am creating this account because of hardships caused by cancer. As debilitating as it may be of a disease I will I know that it wants to feed on the weak and weiry. That's why we are placed in financial turmoil as loved ones lose their fight, and other loved ones still fight on. I cherish my memories of those I have lost along the way and offer my full support to my family fighting today. For it is only with determination, perciverence, and Faith will we find a cure for Sarcoma Cancer. And it wouldn't come at a better time. I am currently seeking funding for a headstone for my father who passed away last June of Sarcoma. And I am going to be starting another for my mother who was diagnosed in April with stage 4. I am the caretaker, I take her to her appointments offer support much like I did my father while he was in active treatment. My mother's case however is happening at a quicker rate. They are not offering a treatment at this point. I believe we need a second opinion however my hardships, we can not afford the trips and my vehicle will not make it much linger. I am sure where there is a will there is a way I keep reminding my mother of this when she begins to worry. I have applied at countless charities stating they donate cars to those in need, that help out financially and have heard no response. However I will keep on in my endeavors and in hopes one day set up a foundation that actually assists the people in need instead of getting funding from the government to help people only to make them trickle down a list of people to find out my area has no funding for such cause. If we work together their is hope.

About Veterans needing help

My name is Robert M Hebel I live in Green Bay Wis., My Son David is in Topeka Kansas he is 4 years old. I came back to Green Bay Wis., last year for family reasons and my son stayed with his Mother in Ks.

I have been away from my Son for over a year now and was waiting on my Disability before I went back to Topeka to get my Son. My Sons mother married a convict who used my vehicle in crimes while I was in Green Bay and he was sentenced to prison. I left the vehicle for my Son and my then girlfriend.

I cannot wait any longer to go get my Son for these two reasons, one her now husband is getting out of prison in July in 30 days and my Son will not be around this child abuser and drug addict. I need to go get my 4 year old Son who I raised for 3 years and I have tried believe me I have tried over and over again so I gave up until I found all this out that her husband is getting out the 1st week of August. My Disability has until Sept 2015 to have my hearing and I Attorneys who keep telling me they are waiting until Sept.

I need a vehicle or the money to rent a vehicle to get to Kansas visit with my son then bring my son home with me.

Hi,the only housing resource we know is section 8, you apply for it at DHS.We also do not know any resources that will help with a car payment.You can get on internet,type in needhelppayingbills,city,county,state. You will then see a list of resources in your area that might be able to help with other bills,such as electric,gas,water,rent and food.some of the resources on that list will help with rent deposit and first month rent if they got the funds.

I'm in the hospital I got an infectious disease from a surgery. I was on worker's compensation until March. I have no income for me and my niece. We had to move all of our stuff out and into a storage unit that someone else paid for. I'm in debt and in need of a place for my niece and I to live. The car that we will be leaving in will be repossessed later this month. I'm in no health condition to work at this time. My niece does work but it is not enough money to pay for the bills. We need financial help, housing help and medical help.

We do not know any resources that will pay your court fines. Best thing to get a job and pay it off yourself.Our resources help with food,rent and utility only.
