Do you know me?
My wife and I have both worked our entire lives. Five years ago however, my wife was diagnosed with cancer. She is doing better now, but is unable to work. We weren’t able to keep our house, with only one household income, and now I am worried that we will not make rent this month. Her medications are so expensive that I think we may soon have to decide between paying for her prescriptions and paying rent. I love my wife and don’t want to sacrifice her health but I don’t know what to do – we don’t have any family that can help us.
