You have to be strong and persevere. COVID-19 cut down my ability to earn extra money to help support my family because I cater events and all events were canceled this hindered me from being able to pay my bills. I was working part time and I needed the money to support my household and it just wasn’t there, and month after month the bills just got higher and higher. My husband was on dialysis and he wasn’t able to support the family like he wanted to. Then on Thanksgiving day of 2020 I witnessed the death of my husband with having my own health issues and I still had to be strong and push through all of the pain.

Scary timeline!

It is was and still is hard time in daily way of life , whenever you go idea of COVID-19 infection is in back of your mind !!! Scared and unsure about what could be if you do get it and spread it to your parents or family .

No Help

I am disabled and don’t drive. This mess has really got to me I don’t drive and they don’t deliver food or meds here so its been real hard to get stuff when I need it. I can’t even get to the dr or vet for my service dog.

Surviving the Pandemic

Its been hard living thru 2020, if not the deaths all over the country, its been the virus which has taken so many innocent lives, then theres people struggeling to get by with all the businesses closing, food banks running empty everyday, the propaganda with the government, not wanting to help financially, ? Stimulus, and people out robbing homes, people on streets, and then theres people waiting to see what loved ones will survive , waiting on the vaccine, im 59 yrs old, i do not remember a year in my life were i was so afraid wondering if my self, or my loved ones would survive this year, i can only keep praying we make it to 2021

My life in the struggle

My struggles started when I lost my child on October 1,2019, my world was turned upside down then this pandemic it does not make anything better my son contracted the COVID-19 and also my cousin who I’m currently living with so it was real scary not knowing what to expect but I prayed and asked God to give me the strength to go through what this pandemic has to offer. Let me back up a little when I lost my daughter I behaved in a lot of my bills .

Well, I witness how we all came together as a community and help each other get through these difficult times. I am forever grateful and i am so thankful and happy to be apart of this amazing community.

My testimony

well I really don’t know where to start. In March I was laid off do to corona… totally devastated. My son and I were in a world of trouble. In May I found out had cancerous cells on my cervix, also had a special procedure to stop the growth (painful), also in May I suffered 2nd degree burns in my back. In June I suffered a stroke,and it affected my right side slightly. Neurologist suggested I shouldn’t drive until further notice. While in the pandemic and me being in the hospital, my son who suffers from mental illness, attempted suicide again (was baker act once). July and August after many different tests and scans doctors found spots on my brain. I started losing my faith and hope. I was scared to go to the doctor for follow ups. September went in for a routine check up ,doc found a spot on my body… he began treatment with different meds and creams, in which none worked. We(doc&I) decided surgery would be better for me to get rid of this aggravating and oozing spot. I ended up having surgery late October. When the results came back it was skin cancer. It’s called Squamous carcinoma. By the grace of God doc was able to remove it all during surgery. In November I was diagnosed with Neuropathy in both legs. Now that were in December I pray daily that whenever I go to my specialist and neurologist that all test from here on out are NEGATIVE… I never in a million years imagined that things like I explained in the message would actually happen to me. It’s been difficult but I make it look sweet for the sake of my son. I live off of $140 . God is still Good and I still have faith… I know for a fact that he’ll make a way out of no way P.S…. I don’t want pity from anyone God has given me all these tests for my testimony. I could use some help. If I’m not chosen ,I pray the family that is appreciates it. Thank you for your listening ears.
