My story involves every day life. I am disabled now for 6yrs. and it was hard for me to turn to my son for the help I needed.He was 15 and going to school like a teenager should be doing,then I was struck with congestive heart failure,rheumatoid arthritis,and osteoarthritis,all at once. I was always the caretaker and and supporter of my children and grandchild.Then the bills started taking all the savings and wiping us out.We managed to buy a 2001 Expedition that kept falling apart on us and my son wanted to keep it so he could haul my wheelchair and me to the Dr.Office ,the hospital for treatments,to the store and the many apts. that had to be kept.I begged him to let me go,put me in a convalescent home and then he would have a better go at life. Well that didn't go over as well as I expected,he would not hear of it. Your my Mother and I will take care of you myself nobody else will get that enjoyment or take that joy from me,you are my life.That was a wake up call for me,I started searching the internet for help for my child so he didn't have to work on a truck that was taking up all his spare time and no time for him to pursue his own life.Well there it was FreeCharityCars, I joined on and Nov.19.2012 my son Chance was Presented a 2007 Toyota Tundra 4 door w/ 40,000 miles on it. Donated to us by Progressive Ins. and Enterprise Leasing on that day when Chance sat in that truck and realized that it was really his he broke down and started Praying to GOD like he had never done before,thru the tears he had held back all these years of struggling to keep us together,the weight was lifted from his shoulders thru God and this wonderful Charity and The Donors. Now he is 22 with his whole life ahead of him and still remains to take care of me with ease now. Oh 1 more thing he got his 1st. and last speeding ticket without me in the truck.LOL Yes typical boy now !!!!! Thank You Be Blessed
