hi ellen, i watch your show everyday. it gives me a lot of happiness. on nov. 26th, my daughter had passed away she was only 43 years old. it was very unexpected, she had cancer. she was waked on the 30th of november. i went into the hospital because i had a stroke and a heart attack right after. my poor husband was so distraught of loosing our daughter then myself going into the hospital. he's had cancer and heart condition. we have had a terrible year, my car broke down and i didn't want to be putting anymore money into it. so we bought another car with payments it was used and it has given us nothing but trouble. just two weeks ago i went to put the heat on in our mobile home and the furnance broke down. i said what else could happen. we don't buy christmas presents for anyone because we can't afford it because we live on social security and it's not even enough for us to survive sometimes. i would like to enter to win the 12 days of christmas. i am a elderly woman and my husband and i watch you all the time. thank you i hope that you will consider me.
thank you janet hughes

hello ellen,
i enjoy your show so much that you give me happiness. we've had quite a bit of things happen to us within the past few months. my stove heating element caught fire, my clothes dryer broke, my car died, my hot water tank let go, my husband had to have surgery on is carotid artery in his neck, i had to have surgery too, they found a lump in my vagina and thought that it was cancer. but when they took it out found out that it wasn't. i was so relieved. i am a elderly woman with 8 grandchildren and this is the first year that i can't get anybody anything for christmas. we've been in a bad way for quite sometime. we live on social security and it's not easy for us with medications, and food, and lights and heat. leaves us nothing at the end of the month. will you please help us we would really appreciate it.
thank you

dear ellen,
i love your show. it gives us happiness and smiles. this year has been the worst for us every. we are elderly couple. in september 5th my husband joe had a blocked carotid artery and had that fixed. i had surgery on september 26 i thought that i had cancer. we had a lump removed and it wasn't cancer . our car has broken down we can't fix it. so this means we can't get to the doctors, pick up medications, food. we just are stuck. then the week of thanksgiving our hot water tank let go. right after that our clothes dryer broke down. our kitchen stove the element in the oven burnt up. we live on social security and it doesn't give us enough to do this so we're not having a car, clothes dryer. we got the stove fixed, and the water tank. so if you can see it in your heart to help us we would be appreciate everything you could do.
thank you ellen

dear ellen
i watch your show everyday and i enjoy every minute of it. after what myself and husband have been through we need a laugh. i have had my hot water tank break just before thanksgiving, my car gave out, my clothes dryer broke. In september we both had surgery. my husbands was for a blocked carotid artery, mine was that i had a lump and it turned out not to be cancer. we've had so much happen to us. my husband is a cancer survivor and i am disabled and can't work anymore. we live very lean on social security. i have 8 grandchildren and i can't get them anything for christmas because we just don't have the money. i feel like we should but i don't have the money for anything. i am trying to get food stamps because we just don't have enough for that. we have medications, and fuel bills hitting the roof, and lights. so when i think of christmas i just cry. because i can't do anything for anybody. first time in my life i can't.
but we just don't have anything.
if you would pick us it would be so happy time for our family. i would appreciate it so much.
we're elderly people my husband is 67 and i am 59 and we are proud people and i have never asked for anything in my whole life.
thank you

dear ellen,
happy thanksgiving i hope that you and portia have a wonderful day. myself and husband joe have been through so much in the past 10 years. we were living in a town in massachusetts taking care of my mother who has since passed away at the age of 68. she had pancreatic cancer stage 4 and they gave her 6 months to live. she died in 5 months. i was so devasted by her dying. she left me her home where i grew up. my husband and i lived there for 7 years and tried to fix it up. we had to sell it, and got enough to buy a mobile home in new hampshire. my husband came down with stage 3 colon cancer, had to leave his job. we had to go on social security and live on a very low income. i was still working at the time. it was tough because he was going through chemo and having it done too at our home. i had a problem with chest pains so i went to the doctor and she ordered me a myoview stress test. well they couldn't do it because my blood pressure was too high. when i told my boss i had to reschedule it she said no you can't take time off. i thought to myself my life means more to me than this job. so i left my job. i had to give up the health insurance from the company and go on cobra which was 1200.00 a month. i had to pay this because my husband with the cancer needed to get his treatment. after the year was up and he could have the surgery to reverse the colostomy bag i had to keep the insurance. this paying 1200.00 a month with only 723.00 in the social security check coming in. i had money left from the sale of the home in massachusetts. well that basically took it all. i was told that i couldn't work anymore because i have a 2 herniated disc's in my back, and diabetes, and bladder pain syndrome, which i just had surgery to remove a lump from my vagina i thought it was cancer and it wasn't thank God. my husband in september had to have a blocked carotid artery surgery. we just had our car breakdown, our clothes dryer break down, our hot water tank let go. we live on social security and i don't even have money from month to month to buy food, medications. we're a proud people and sometimes i just feel the need just to tell my story. my husband is right now feeling pretty fair. me i will always have this pain in my back. but i kept saying life goes on and we will be alright there are people worse off than us. we can't walk to the store to get anything like milk and bread. i have to depend on people to help us and it's taking a toll on us to do this. sometimes i cry so my husband doesn't see. i don't want to upset him he's been through enough.my car was a nissan maxima a 2000 and my kids say wow it's old you should get a new one. well that's all i have and can afford. i don't think so. anymore. we are in desperate need of some kind of help ellen. i barely pay our bills and i don't know what i am going to do about the normal things like heat we pay for propane and they just don't care if you can afford it. i turn the heat off at night so i can save it. the lights we use very little. water i don't use much of that. sounds awful but this is how we have to live at our age. which stinks. we're in our 60's now. i haven't bought any clothes not a word of a lie since 2006. i don't know what it is like to go shopping. i have 8 grandchildren, i can't buy them a present for christmas. which makes us feel awful. i said to them all grammy and grampy can't do christmas this year. i feel like such a awful person but there isn't any money.
if you read this ellen please find it in your heart to help us. it would be so appreciated you have no idea.
thank you so much

hi ellen
i watch your show all the time. i am in a very bad way. my husband (joe) has battled cancer stage 3 colon cancer, carotid artery surgery. i have had my share too. i have had a double knee replacement,and just recently i thought that i cancer of the cervix. it turned out that it wasn't. i was so relieved, they had to remove a big mass from me and i have had so much happen to us in the past several months. we not rich people by no means. we live on a very low fixed income and doesn't give us much for anything. recently we have had to bring our 2000 nissan in for a inspection and it didn't pass and it was all we've got. now we can't get to the doctors or to the food store pick up medicine. i don't know what we're going to do. we are at a rock and a hard place. but through this all he's saying to me we have each other and i know in my heart this is true. but we need that car to get us to our doctors and food shopping , i just had to write and just tell you this because i know your a kind person and will listen to me. i never will ask for help we will manage some how . but i really don't know how we're going to do this. we can't walk to the doctors. we have to go to the food store pick up our medicines i just don't know how we are going to get through this. i am a proud person, but sometimes you have to speak up and tell someone. i love your show your a very funny person you make me laugh. after all we've been through and now this. i saved 500.00 to get the car fixed and then when he said 1500.00 i was devastated and started to cry. my poor husband said that we'll get through this. i cried even harder. i said to him i give up. i can't do this anymore. then some friends called and said well just go buy another car. i can't because when he had cancer i have bad credit and i can't afford to because of our income so low.
ellen thanks so much for listening to me and my problems.
love you

Hello Ellen,
i am a person who loves your show. Myself and husband Joe watch your show everyday. Today was not a good day at all. This whole month was a terrible time as well last month. My husband had to have a very serious surgery, it was a carotid artery. It was the longest 4 hours i spent waiting. He pulled through this surgery. Then on september 26th i had to have a big mass removed from my body . They thought that i have cancer of the cervix but thank God i didn't. I have had my share as well. But my husband had colon cancer stage 3 and beat it.
I have had a double knee replacement and a heart attack and i am also a diabetic. I am writing to you just because i just wanted to tell you that i think that you are doing a great job by making us laugh.It is wonderful how funny you are and a caring person.

Today wasn't a good day at all. I own a 2000 nissan car and had to bring it to get it inspected. It didn't pass. I saved up money 500.00 for this purpose. Well it wasn't enough. We live on social security and need this car to get us to the doctors, food shopping, and picking up medicine. Now i can't do it. Ellen we have no idea what we're going to do to get to the doctors, food shopping and picking up our pills. We are stuck in our home without anybody helping us.

I feel so alone because we have no one that could help us. The bill for the fixing of the car was 1500.00 and we can't do that. It took me a few months to save up 500.00. I know it doesn't seem like alot but it is to us.
We aren't young people we're 67 and 59 years old and i feel like i have failed .
My husband said to me when i was crying don't worry we will figure out something. I said what honey? what can we do??

He said we have each other and that's all that matters. I said we need this care to get to the dr's and get some food and our pills, what are we gonna do?

I don't know but we will figure out something. I said we don't live close to a store we can't walk to the store it's too far. Well i guess we will have to do without. I am just frustrated that's all. Because at my age these things aren't suppose to happen.

Ellen please keep me laughing that's what i need right now. Something will happen for the good for us. we have been through everything and anything and this is just a bump we have to keep on going some how .......
thank you for listening to me.

thanks
