This has been such a difficult time for us lately, and it is so hard to ask for help. I can not work because of lupus, and Jon already works 6 days a week and is exhausting himself. We really need help. We have to catch up on rent, or lose our home.

  My dearest friends I am coming to you humbly once more asking for help, we are in dire need of assistance and do not know where else to turn. I have SLE Lupus which has been particularly nasty lately and As some of you may remember last October Jon fell very seriously ill with a bacterial staph infection that entered his bones in his hand. I am happy to report that his health is very good now. He is back at work, but he had to change jobs due to unhealthy working conditions and to have a job closer to home in the event that I should need him, with my lupus now in full flare. He took a small pay cut to do this, but it is not that bad and if we ever get caught back up we will be ok. It has been a pretty hard month. We are still almost $2,000 behind in rent, and yesterday our water and gas got cut off. I am getting that back this morning, but we are sacrificing groceries and a loan payment to do it. We are getting by with no car now, it was lost to a title loan, and thats been especially hard for me not being able to get out of my house. I have SLE Lupus and simple tasks like walking to town arent quite so simple. Im not going to list all my burdens, they are what they are, but I am simply asking for a little relief and help in getting the bills caught back up and paid and so we can get back on track. I dont have credit cards or credit card bills, I dont have luxuries like cable tv or a nice phone, I dont need it. Our debts are rent, loans, and medical needs. We dont have health insurance at his new job yet, and my condition requires me to see my doctor once a month for my steroid and pain medication and we have to pay cash for the dr visit and my medications every month. I just want to get caught up and alleviate some of Jon's stress, he works very very hard, six days a week, and he never complains, and he has always helped anyone in any way he can, please help me to help him now. anything is appreciated and everything will eventually get paid forward. Thank you friends and family, I know you have always been here for me, and I am always here for you. You are loved. Blessed be.
