A personal FAM story (names have been changed): Tom and Amy & children –
Tom’s an auto mechanic. With their five growing children to feed and clothe, his wages don’t always stretch as far as they’d like. Several years ago, he started having pain in his knee. He was diagnosed with a benign tumor and had surgery, but he never fully recovered. He has to be on his feet all day. In spite of the constant pain, he’s faithfully gone to work to support his family. The doctor recommended a complete knee replacement, but it was a long time before our medical insurance gave the okay. They saved the money to pay their expenses during the time he’d be off work. The knee replacement surgery was successful. However, they had no idea it would be months before he would be back on his job—in fact, four and a half long months! Amy couldn’t find a job. Their savings were soon gone. Now, with their income completely cut off, they feared that they’d be evicted.
“I just can’t begin to think what would have happened to us without FAM and our church. They worked together to help with our rent. I’m very thankful for all the help our family received through FAM. We’re truly appreciative.” exclaimed Amy.
