Hi. My name is Brianne and I am 34 years old. September 29, 2011 I had open heart surgery and that resulted in having sternal nonunion. I can no longer work. I own my home but with three children ages 14, 11, and 7 it hasnt taken us long to out grow it. The kids all share a room and we currently have only one bathroom which makes it hard on everyone. The roof is falling apart and we use a wood burning stove and fireplace to heat in the winter just because electric bills are too expensive. Now the mortar is crumbling around it and to be honest I am scared of using it. The roof leaks and the siding is all kinds of crazy. My hope is that once I am accepted into disability that I will be able to provide better for all three of my kids. I am not experienced with these funding sites and have never used one before, but now it is almost essential. I had an older model trailer outback that I used to store the kids extra stuff and things that belonged to them when they were little, but two weeks ago Sunday, I woke up to it on fire. It was only a few feet from the house. This absolutely terrified me. Now the things that I wsa holding onto for them are gone. My family has had a hard time the past four years because of my medical and health issues, but not only that we buried my boyfriends 16 year old son, my daughters oldest brother. Things have been tough but we all try to look into the future positively and I know that things will get better. Please help me provide a better home for my children so they will be proud of where we live. Thanks and God Bless You!
