Before I retired from my work, my only child had suffered from liver cirrhosis and was forced to resign from her work. I gave up most of my pension and retirement pay for her medical treatment until her recovery. Given my current financial status, I am asking for your help in paying my home mortgage. Besides my daughter and husband, this house means a lot to me. I worked hard to buy this when I was still a young adult.
I know it would not have come to this but like others, I have financial difficulties too. Last 2006, I was shocked with my husband's sudden death a month after my cancer surgery and I was left penniless. Even though I had a job, it was not enough for me to pay my bills, tuition fees, high medical and burial fees. At the time of his death, I had learned that my Father suffered from old age diseases mainly heart condition and since I am the only member of the family who has a stable job until today, I solely paid for his medical treatment until the time of his death in the year 2008.
Months after that had happened, I had a slow recovery from my sickness and I thought I could recover from my financial setback but I faced another tragic incident, I became a victim of an inevitable event which was Typhoon Sendong. I had lost my house and belongings. The Government did nothing to help me at least get a small house so I had resort to borrowing money from different people to help me at least restore half of my house so me and my daughter can stay.
I am 64 years old widow living with my sickly child. It is in this promises that I am knocking at the door of your merciful heart to please understand my situation. We only have next year 2018 to make a full payment to keep this house otherwise, we don't have anywhere to go to.
