Ask about mortgage insurance information
help the patient with their living expenses? I have heard that Salvation Army or Red Cross may help with utilities while one is not able to work, but not sure about mortgage payments?
I was diagnosed with a brain tumor (non-cancerous) 4 years ago, and doc told me yesterday that it is time to remove the tumor as it keeps getting bigger and causing my brain to swell, and told me that he has my surgery scheduled for 2/24/10….that is coming up quick! I have health insurance and short term disability with my job, however at my job when out on short term disability you only get paid 60% of your regular salary, I know because I was out 2 weeks in August for female surgery.
The problem is, I am on the cusp of bankruptcy, I owe another $140 to my attorney and then he will file my case…..I have been chipping away at this $1875 since this past summer. I drive an 11 year old car and I live in a mobile home, so there definately no extravgances here. I am paying my mortgage about 30 days behind and at one point at the end of the year got I 2 months behind and had to come up with $2300 in 1 month time to cure the default. Needless to say, there was no Christmas, but there also was not much left even for food…..I was able to get a food handout from a local church but it wasn’t much. My thinking is that if I am already struggling while working full time, how will I ever be able to make it when I am off work for 1 whole month at only 60% of my wages?
I hate being in this position, but medical bills and being left by my fiancee early last year, put me in a financial downward spiral…..I have had to pay everything on my own and I would venture to say I probably have a credit score of -100. I have even started renting out rooms in my house, yet it still isn’t enough.
Is there ANYWHRE, where I could get help with my mortgage, electric and maybe some food? I do have bank statements/paystubs and etc to backup my case, but where would I go to get help without having to go through a lot of red tape, as I don’t have a lot of time? I am not on any public assistance programs and never have been as I have always made too much $, so I really do not know where to even begin?
If anyone out here has been through a sugery/illness for an extended period of time or if you know someone who has and they were able to get some kind of help, so they didn’t end up without electricity, hungry or homeless, I would be very interested in hearing about your experience and how you were able to get help.
One last thing, I do have a minor child in the home and yes, I do get child support for him, but it’s really not that much.
I live in Tampa, Florida (Hillsborough County)
