Due to various unforeseen circumstances and my personal medical issues, I find myself behind in a number of important bills and most importantly my home mortgage. I have run out of options and now am asking for help from family, friends and colleagues. More

A few years ago I was told that I had cancer. A large tumor had been discovered on my right kidney and I had surgery to remove the kidney. Fortunately the biopsy showed that the tumor was benign and there was no cancer. During the years before that I underwent three separate surgeries on my lower back for a growth between my 4th and 5th lumbar vertebrae. As a result I have been unable to walk even short distances or stand for even short periods of time without extreme pain. I now use a mobility scooter to get around. I have held off on telling most friends and colleagues about this because I am embarrassed that I need to use this device to get around. In addition to the multiple surgeries in the past year and a half, we have had some unexpected deaths in both my and my wife’s family, which required us to make a number of unplanned out of state trips. To make a long story short, we have fallen behind in a number of our financial obligations to the extent where I cannot get a loan and have run out of options. The two biggest are our home mortgage and our car payments which are a number of months behind. I don’t like to ask others for help but it has come to the point where I have no choice. I do have a job and when things are on track our monthly pay covers the bills with no problems. But now, each month I seem to get further and further behind. I know that things are tough all over but if you can help with anything I would appreciate it more than you know. Thank you all in advance for any help you can provide. I love you all.
