Hardship

Hi, I’m Juanita Hernandez I couldn’t pay my bill this month because I’ve had a hard time since my two sons moved out. They used to help me out but I also became disabled and I cannot work. I have fibsios of the lungs, I’m always in chronic pain. Also, I have a case pending with social security but they haven’t approved me yet. It’s been hard on me and my family. I have a seven year old son, his father died three years ago of cancer and he used to help me out. My older kid’s father also passed away two weeks ago in Mexico and we had to raise money to pay for his funeral. Life has just been so hard for me and my family these past couple of years. I’ve been scammed with credit cards for life insurance loans etc. Thank you so much for everything! I really appreciate it.
