Elderly woman and family caregivers urgently need brake work and tires on their only vehicle, for cancer & pain treatments, doctor visits, grocery trips....

My name is Joyce H,, and I am asking for help for my friend Bast, and her mom, Roberta. Why is a fundrazr for car repairs under health? 

Their only vehicle is currently undrivable, the brakes failed completely and the tires have dry rot. Roberta and Bast both have serious health conditions requiring visits to the doctor several times a month, including an upcoming cancer surgery for Roberta. Without their vehicle, these doctor visits and even grocery trips become impossible, and these illnesses will quickly become life threatening. Where they live, a somewhat rural area, there is NO public transport, not even taxi services.

The shop has quoted $600 for brake repairs. For the work needed, this is a very fair price, and the shop is within walking distance. The only factor is their extremely limited income, which has been badly impacted by increased property tax and medical bills. Tires would be another $400 or so, and will need to be replaced before a blowout kills someone.

If you can help, please do. If you can make others who may be able to help aware, please do. The smallest gift would go far. These are good people who are desperate, and who appreciate and are grateful for kindness shown. They struggle daily to pay bills, buy food, even with the help of friends. There is no family to help, only friends who do all they can, and the kindness of strangers.

Thank you for reading.
