Hello my name is Christine I'm 44yrs old single mother of 2 kids. I'm here to tell my story of why I'm trying to raise money for my goal of $2000. There's so much more I would like to share with you about myself but I don't want to take up to much of your time as it is already. But here's what's important right now to explain. I have been working driving for uber for the last year being because I needed a job that gives me the flexabilty of hours due to my health issuses that are slowly but surely not getting better in time & some days are better than others. So I was leasing a car through exchange leasing & because my credit score wasn't great my payments were $164 a week (not including my insurance) I feel as if I was pretty much working just to pay for my car and it started getting harder to make the payments because lately i wasn't able to work as much because of the bones in my neck are disintegrating and I was told by the doctor 2 years ago that I would be having to have surgery to repair the bones in my neck and it's just a matter of time before I can't even hold up my head up. But I've had to put that off in order to try & save on top of a very large payment for the car I'm just leasing. Besides my neck I have seen my doctor extra because I have something going on with my kidneys right now that with everything else going on it's kind of the last thing on my list to take care of unfortunately, which is why I'm reaching out because over months & months & months of saving up. to buy another car, one I could actually own not just lease. Cause I have medical needs i need to start saving up for. So i gave back the car that I was Leasing almost 3 weeks ago now so I wouldn't have the high payments anymore & could put anything extra towards more important issues My health. So then I went on Craigslist to buy a car. Worst mistake ever cause i got scammed!! Scammed by a guy selling a car on there scammed out of almost $3000 then him & his acct disappeared. My first time on Craigslist buying anything & that happens. I was devastated because it took me so long to save up that much  with bills & such a huge weekly car payment & that was everything I had saved. Now I have No car to work & No money to buy a car to go to work or even make it to my doctor's appointments for that matter. I don't know what I'm going to do. I feel really helpless right now I feel like the worst parent ever & am letting my kids down . My main goal was to be able to work enough to save up enough money so when I do schedule & have my surgeries next year I will be able to afford in-home care for recovery because my insurance doesn't cover the whole amount I need and the time I'll have to take off of work. So I'm reaching out to everyone for some help reaching my goal of $2000 Its not the 3k I was scammed out of but its what I hope to try & raise in such a short time before my work & heath suffer even more So. $2000 Towards a good reliable car so I can go back to work before my health over more time gets worse without treatment. & don't have huge care payment any more so I can be able to save a little extra so within 6mo I can afford to take off work & pay for my in home care to recover from my surgeries, & in time, can go back to working full time without being in the  pain I've been in for years now. So any donation would help. Like I said I'm car less & have been for almost 3mo now & I'm getting more & more depressed every day that goes by because I need to work & can't afford not to, mentally or physically at this point I will post some pics of my family including  Myself & rusty so people can get an idea of who the girl behind this story is. Thank you for your.  Time & again please open your hearts & know.  That every little bit heIps and would make such a huge difference in ours lives there's no words to describe what that would mean for us. I'm not asking for anyone to support my family & I what I'm praying & hoping for is the chance to be able to  do it myself & in time be healthy enough to live, love , & smile again the way god intended me to. So please help me get back to work sooner than later because I'm just not sure how much longer my health can go untreated. It really Would mean the world. All's i can do is hope & pray more & keep the faith that God, through people, helps in mysterious ways. Thank you for letting me share my story with you .
