I am a cancer patient with a three year old son.his mother couldn’t stay the course and left us.  The lifestyle and people she has chosen to become involved with is not a safe place for her, much less my son; it just happened.  It’s overwhelming.  I am living in an old fifth wheel at the top of a 3 quarter of a mile very steep mountain. I don’t drive and have to pack water up for drinking, bathing, and cleaning. Now that we are alone, I have to do this with a toddler in tow, all household supplies and food items also it’s become an impossible situation. We are alone, abandoned, and I’m fighting for my life and the future of my son. I  am a carpenter with 30 years’ of experience. I tried to work 2days this week, up at 6:00 a.m., medical transport at 7:00 a.m., with 3 year old not happy about his mom being gone. 11/2 drive for treatment, same to home. Picked up for work at 1:00 p.m.(a trip down and up for supplies, jugs of water if physically able. a dirty windy construction site till 8:00 p.m., trying to be productive and make sure my son stays safe, in my sight, and happy. impossible task. The work alone is hard but he comes first, and I refuse to put him through that again. please help us. I’m sinking fast with no lifeline in sight. we need a home with running water, laundry facilities, and in a city center to make it easier to buy supplies and groceries. we both need clothing, shoes and other kids for him to play with. All this is impossible to accomplish on 509 a month from tannif. apparently.I’ve worked hard my whole life, had a son at 52, was diagnosed with cancer at 55, and lost everything due to the pandemic. I’m not asking this for myself but for this beautiful little boy who doesn’t know why things are so hard, why his mommy left him, and why life has become so hard; his daddy cry’s himself to sleep. He’s so gentle with me when I’m really bad from the treatments. It’s heartbreaking.

  My apologies to the port orford rotarians for my misguided verbal attack.you all have gone above and beyond for me in the past.I’ve redacted my comments and beg your forgiveness.you do an amazing job in this community.I’m still in shock and my brain is a bit fuddled from the chemo and radiation.humbly yours.
