My husband and I are both disabled Veterans with two kids. We desperately need help with expenses related to relocating to San Diego. There, we will have better income and health insurance. The money that we raise will be used to help us relocate.

Do to a debilitating injury while overseas, my husband ended his 13 year career as a United States Marine. We were temporarily displaced after he left active duty and we ended up in Texas. Because of this, and because Obamacare (ACA) was not fully rolled out in Texas, I have been without healthcare for nearly 3 years. Recently, a great opportunity has presented itself in San Diego. 

Asking for money and putting ourselves out there like this is our last resort, but we are hoping that the compassion and help from friends, family and strangers we will be able to land on our feet and move forward. Unfortunately we don't have alternatives: we can not take out a loan and do to the nature of the city we will need our vehicle. Without help we may end up living in a cheap motel or have to rely on homeless shelters. This is terrifying to think about with 2 school age children.

The money that we raise will be used to help us get to San Diego and also assist us with a deposit/1st/last months rent. That is a huge expense that would be hard on any family. Mixed with moving, the cost is insurmountable without your help. We will be regularly updating so you will know what is happening with us as we take the leap to improve our lives. We know it might be rough for all of us in the beginning, but your help and hope will make it a little bit easier!

Thank you for taking the time to read about our situation. If you are unable to donate we totally understand, feel free to share with those you think may be able to help us instead.
