The Original 1-800 Charity Cars operates the www.freecharitycars.org site, where struggling families apply for a free charity car, nationwide. Today we would like to highlight one of our car donation applicants to share with you the people behind the need.
Sandra Doss has been a member of our vehicle distribution site since August 12, 2013, where she has applied for assistance in receiving a vehicle. Here is a summary of her situation that she wanted to share:
“My name is Sandra Doss, my username on Free Charity Cars is Sandyd314, and I reside in Frankfort, Kentucky. Two years ago, I started having bad headaches and I thought it was my blood pressure. After an x-ray was performed, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. I have to have follow ups every six months for my brain tumor. I also have polyps on my vocal cords that have left me only able to talk above a whisper. The hospital here in Frankfort is very small and ill equipped to meet my medical needs. They said I would need to go to a bigger hospital, better equipped to have them removed.
I lost my job and my apartment due to my medical issues. I had nothing, no job, no money, no insurance, no transportation, and no place to live. I had no choice but to move in with my son and we live in a 288 square foot place. My son works at the local Wal-Mart, in a low paying position and he walks to work. I thank God everyday because if not for my son, I would be in the streets.
We just need a car so badly. I need to be able to get the medical help I so desperately need, find employment, and move on with my life. My son and I only have each other. We do not have anyone to help us. I have always helped others. I’m a CNA, have been for 30 plus years. I always worked in nursing homes and helped the elderly. I just want to be able to get back to normal, but without a car that’s not a possibility.”
