My husband and I are enduring some serious Financial hardships due to him being unable to work due to his health. My husband, Chuck, has been sick since the end of January, has lost over 100lbs, and the Doctors at Carle and Barnes in St.Louis are still unable to diagnose whats going on. He is now also dealing with severe malnutrition, constant headaches, bone pain among other deficiencies as well as sleep problems. He has been able to receive disability through his IMRF, as an MTD driver here in Champaign/Urbana, but in November we were informed he needed to apply for SSI due to being on disability for 6 months now with IMRF. He did so, and due to following procedures, we found out on November 30, that IMRF has stopped all payments until we have received an approval or disapproval from SSI. So without any warning we are not getting any funds, and now we are unable to pay our rent and other utility bills. Our landlord, Champaign, has stated they unfortunately are unable to give grace in these situations and have told us they have to treat all renters the same. So if we do not have or December rent paid by the 15th of December, they will start eviction process. This is the first time we have ever been in a situation like this, and on top of everything else its Christmas. We are not materialistic and we know Christmas is NOT about gifts.We just don't want to lose our home, we are praying for a financial miracle and a diagnosis for my husbands health.
