“I have an auto immune disorder amongst other medical problems that I have battled for many years. It has made it very difficult to work full time. After my battle with cancer and then losing my mom to cancer in 2018, I decided to try doing my own thing. I became self employed and in 2019 it started to grow some, but sadly due to the pandemic all that growth vanished. I am in the middle of a nasty divorce after being in an abusive marriage for many years. I only get $200 a week in unemployment. Many jobs are off limits to me due to my medical conditions. It’s been a very long and hard three years for us. I would like to give my amazing children a wonderful Christmas. It would be nice to have some normalcy and some holiday cheer. Happiness has been scarce. We all be something to smile about.”
