My name is Abby, I have no reason to be asking this from you, but my family needs help.
I am a single mother of one smart, beautiful, and silly little girl. She is 7 and I have been divorced from her father since I discovered his child pornography addiction in 2008 (when she was 7 months old). Since then the punches just keep on coming. L was diagnosed with Eosinophilic Esophagitis two years ago and diet continues to be a struggle. We have constant doctors appointments and travel expenses for her specialists. In addition, my health is now fading and surgery is imminent.
I am asking for help, not because I deserve it, but because my daughter does. She is such a wonderful child, she has just been moved up a grade because of her intelligence, and is the funniest most wonderfully creative kid I've ever known (not that I'm biased or anything). But because of both health issues I am only able to work part time, which has been barely kept us alive, however now I have lost the car because I am unable to afford insurance and am paying a cab to go to work, so basically I am now making $40 a week.
I need a Christmas miracle, I need help to afford a new car - even a $500 one - anything so that I can keep my job and continue to provide for this wonderful girl.
Please, I know there are so many other places to donate, but please help us.
