Survivor50
I lost my only child last August, my beautiful 19 y. old. Madeline and in turn lost my job because I was unable toi function well at the time. I have moved to be closer to my elderly parents but have not been able to find employment. My loving parents have had to carry the weight of my financial burdens and they are running out of money that is supposed to be taking care of them in their late years. I know that there are others that need assistance more than I but I would like to know what other programs are out there to possibly assist me.

Mommy-of-3-in-need
Hello,
My name is Michelle; I am a mother of 3 children; 13 year old daughter, 10 year old son and an 8 year old daughter. I have always been a hard worker and supported my family. I was even able to move my mom in with me from out of state to take care of her once she was diagnosed with Brain Cancer. I am now struggling to survive and take care of my family. Due to an unforeseen illness last December I lost my job, and was admitted to the hospital for an emergency surgery to remove a 19 pound cyst and my right ovary which ruptured. I was diagnosis with PID (pelvic inflammatory disease) and Endometriosis (an auto immune disease) I was on bed rest for 3 months following the surgery and unable to return to work for an additional 4 months until being released by my doctor the middle of July. I do not qualify for unemployment since it was a medical condition which caused me to not be able to work. I applied for short term disability but since the doctor stated I would only be out of work for 7 months the social security office denied my request. I applied for assistance with the state of Nevada and was approved for medical and food stamps for myself and my children for 6 months starting March 1, 2012 through August 1, 2012. I have also contacted the local churches, United Way, Help of Southern Nevada, City of Las Vegas and Clark County Social Services for food boxes, energy assistance and rental assistance. I was only given food boxes since my address is not considered city limits. I have started to look for employment again and have emailed resumes to all job postings that I am qualified for I have tried to get loans from family and friends, but they’re unable to since they’re all living pay check to pay check. I have spent all my savings and have sold everything worth value in our home. I have hundreds of applications in with employers, and I am even attending a job search program through the State of Nevada hoping to gain employment. But, I feel that everywhere I turn a door is slammed in my face! Thankfully my landlord had worked with me by allowing me to pay rent by the 10th each month, until July. He also waited until the 30th day to file an eviction to give us a little more time because the condition that my mother is in. I received an eviction notice and filed a motion to stay until September 5, 2012 So that I can get my children enrolled into school and hopefully find a job, and at least a temporary place to stay. Even if it may be a hotel until I can be fully self supportive again. I’m currently awaiting a letter from the judge to see if he will grant us to stay. Our gas has already been shut off and our electricity is going to be cut off for the second time on the 21st. Please I am desperate for any kind of assistance anyone out there can give. I will need to rent a truck to put our belongings into storage. School starts in a week and I haven't been able to purchase anything at all for them. They are good kids and have survived some very difficult hardships. We would truly be blessed and very grateful for any type of help and assistance anyone could provide to me, my children and my mother. Thank you for taking the time to read my post and consider helping us.
Sincerely, Michelle.

It’s an effort to clear the tears long enough to see what I'm typing... Harder still to fight back the monsters in my head to coherently compose this desperate plea for help...
Last December 3 vicious dogs broke into my back yard killing my beloved pet poodle and maiming another. During the struggle I had the end of my right hand middle finger bit off. The owner of the dogs was a renter and had no assets the “free” injury attorney could go after. So I incurred all the medical debts. Because of the injury I lost my job and am not able to return to my previous field or really any employable venue. Because I could not afford complete medical care and recommended physical therapy, my finger is now permanently damaged and incapable of normal usage which has caused massive obstacles to employment possibilities.
My mother had moved in with me because of her health problems the year before so we survived on her monthly social security. She passed away July 7th… A week later while trying to put stuff out for a garage sale to hopefully generate enough money to pay my utility bills I was nearly crushed by 24 sheets of 4’ x 8’ x ½” decking. My left knee suffered a 100% tear of my acl, cleaved my meniscus, fractured my tibia plateau and other associated damages. I have gone to two ER’s, a low cost clinic, and had to have an MRI. For all of which I now owe tens of thousands of dollars… Because I am uninsured, unemployed and penniless my only hope for needed surgery on my knee is to be placed on a waiting list for charity cases. I am so scared my acceptance will come too late and my knee will improperly heal (life my finger has) and leave me crippled.
Prior to the last tragedy I had began the near impossible task of applying for social security disability. Listing my finger as main cause but also honestly included my noticeable server depression. I have seen three professional therapists (two at the clinic and one in the physiatrists office, a physiatrist, and my primary care physician at the clinic. All have agreed I need help and my doctor has given me two prescriptions for anit-depression medication. But I don’t have the money to get them filled, nor the money to continue therapy. I don’t even have the money for toilet paper…
I have called and applied to DHS, but have been denied because I don’t have an underage child. I have been given food stamps but that will not pay my monthly utilities or existing/future medical bills. I am so scared and worried I sometimes want to just quit…breathing. My “family” has done all they can by covering my mother’s funeral costs (for which I agreed to pay the monthly credit card bill used – which I can’t) My only asset is my home but I have nowhere to go or any way to pay rent. My only child died 14 years ago and with mom gone now, I am left totally alone.
Please if anyone can tell me what to do I would be forever grateful. Please hurry because I won’t have internet access much longer (internet service on cutoff notice and selling my computer is pending). Thank you, -

Hello My name is Brittany and I am 21yrs old. This will be my third year attending a university and I am an upcoming senior. I am writing this letter today because my family and I are truly in a financial need. My parents have dedicated their years helping others and pastoring in our local community and touching many lives and making a difference. However they are two very strong individuals and they always put others before their selves. however we are left in a situation that we do not have enough money to pay for our home by august 15th we need 3,000 to settle the agreement to be able to keep our home. Also i am suppose to leave back to school on August 7th to arrive early.My plane ticket is already paid for i worked really hard over the summer, but i start school on the 16 of August and i need 4,900 to be enrolled back in school. Ive never wanted to finish school so bad in my entire life. I will be the first person in my family to attend and graduate from a university and I am very proud of this. Also yesterday my mom got into a car accident. At this point we do not own a car we have been driving a rental for almost a year and a half now. my mother was at a red light and someone smashed into the back of the car which led us to have to pay for the damages quickly out of pocket. I am honestly and sincerely asking for you help if possible. My parents are beautiful people and i just want to see them happy and for them not to always be stressed and overwhelmed thank you so much

Sorry to hear about your brother then the school.. I had a similiar thing happen to me.. I went to one school and got a A.S. Degree... transfer to a second one to get my B.S Degree.. and I got it...I got hired in 1999 with a company to program and this was before the Y2K stuff.. 9 years later I looked for another job and got it but when they tried to verify the B.S. Degree at the college in Athens, GA they said I didn't have any B.S. and only complete 1.5 years there even though I was in Athens for 4.25 years.. the last records was semester before 2000. I didn't get that job because of this... I tried again for another job and got it but of course I can't manage anyone because I don't have the paperwork.. I have 17 years in the job title but a lady that has to manage me doesn't even know anything I know. General job description knowledge of what I do. The school says I never got a degree from them. The same IT person that did computer school records when I was there was still there now. When I went to school there the records were by SSN now all are converted to a student id. Duh.. "converted" the conversion lost my records or they were add to someone else as a mistake. Because I didn't know it for 7 years or so maybe the person who got them asked for them to be removed from their records and the trash was taken out of the system and buy buy to my degree. I did find out if you join the alumni then they copy the your school records to the other alumni system so its sort of a backups it for you if anyone wants a backup. I have to take the other 1.5 years now to get what I had... So I say work and take 1 online class every period based on your money and get it done. If that school doesn't help others will help you so get your records from the current school and shop for another one. Its now a $20K different in my salary range. sucks doesn't it..

Ana Morales
P.O. Box 116
Bronx, NY 10462

To whom it may concern:
It is very embarrassing for me to do this but it has all come down to this my last choice my name is Ana and I am in my 40s. Trying to beat this economy crisis has gotten me thinking of me fitting back with someone’s help out there. I was a Teacher’s Assistant for 6 years with special Educational students. Trying my best in going back Lehman College still refuses in letting me in without paying. I don’t have any money to go back this will be my last year at Lehman College and it has been my worst experience but I love school and I won’t give up. Like I said, I have no money but “I always believe when there is a will there is a way”. The year 2008 my life changed no one ever knew about the way I felt in losing my brother. I believe my brother wants me to fight to go back to school and I know if I go back it will be a good feeling and I can open lots of doors. On a spring day after classes, close to finals I received a phone call about my brother being very ill and that I needed to rush to Florida with the rest of the family. First I felt like everything around me had stopped before my eyes. I did not know what to do as much as I enjoy attending school and trying to achieve my Bachelor Degree. Of course I flew to Florida, I remember when flying to Florida all I can think about was why my brother of course in much denial as a sister. After arriving at the hospital he had passed. I ended up getting so sick I flew back to NY the same day and did not even go see him at the gathering. I ended up in the emergency room in NY. Of course when I was better and thought I was ready to go back the Lehman College so I went to register and this is when everything started in the school punishing me from ,first putting me on probation to telling me I exceeded my financial aid . I am asking anyone out there that can help me I would appreciate I all I want to do is finish my Bachelor’s Degree and be the best Teacher out there for the children they need a good role model not a bad role model . I will love my brother to be proud of me. My goal is to go back to school and find work again achieve my goals with someone help out there. All I can say is that I hope someone out there can help me I live in the Bronx and love to work with kids. Thank you for your time. You can email me at anamorales23@aol.com.
