My name is Susan and I’m a 59 year old widow that has had a difficult year with continuous medical issues and now the loss of my vehicle.
My truck was wrecked the middle part of December but no one was hurt thankfully. My insurance company totaled it because it would cost more to fix then it’s valued at. I’m getting a payoff payment but not enough to buy a reliable vehicle.
I’m a cervical cancer survivor from 2010, widowed in 2014 and ongoing issues from the radiation that caused major surgery in 2015 to remove my bladder along with other things causing me to become disabled. I have had a continuous problem with a small intestine blockage that has had me in and out of the hospital over the last six months. I never know when the issue will return putting me back in the hospital.
I receive a monthly disability check that covers most of my basic living expenses but nothing extra. I simply have nothing left over to make a monthly car payment.
With your help, I am hoping to get a trustworthy used vehicle for everyday use including trips back and forth to San Antonio for my doctor appointments. I am borrowing a vehicle from friends and family when I can but it is very difficult for everyone.
I try daily to be thankful for what I do have and grateful to still be alive. I have learned so much these last few years about struggling and being strong with every situation that has knocked me down, but I am asking for help today because I can’t do it alone.
Please help if you can. It’s really hard for me to ask but I have no other options at this time. Even the smallest donation will work toward my goal and be much appreciated. Thank you for reading my story and please share with your family and friends.
