We are at the end of our rope, from medical co-pay expenses (not covered by our CHAMPVA insurance) and limited VA disability income.

    Mom's (Suzy) on-going medical expenses — most recently from intestinal bleeding issues, unresolved Traumatic Brain Injury and anxiety disorder resulting from being rear-ended, then T-boned by an 18-wheeler in a snowstorm west of Vail, Colorado in February 2008 — has completely disrupted our family finances. As this is written, Mom is in the hospital, again. We're completely out of cash and can't buy milk, bread or cereal until Dad's VA check arrives 1 June.
   Our immediate crisis is the cumulative effect of significant medical expenses, Suzy's inability to work for 2½ years and the limits of our family’s sole income —VA disability payments to our disabled Vietnam Veteran father, Mel.
We have consumed our savings. We haven’t ended a month with a positive balance in the bank account for more than six months. We learned this week that our landlord is moving back into our rented house, and we must vacate by 30 June. We have no money for the move, rental deposit, et cetera. With your help, we hope to meet the $3,000 co-pay to continue our family’s CHAMPVA insurance. We will be able to continue to provide for Mom/Suzy's care and treatments, AND to afford this untimely but unavoidable move.
   We sincerely express our deepest gratitude for your generous support in our time of greatest need. Thank you!!
