Dear Ellen,

I am writing to you because I am in desperate need of help.
I have never asked anyone for help in my life. I have always
Been the one to give but now I am in need myself and I don't
Know where to turn. I have always been a single mom. I have
5 beautiful daughters I raised on my own. I worked as a lab tech
For 24 years until I had to take a disability retirement due
to back issues. I have had 4 surgeries on my back already and I
can no longer do all the things I need to do.

My family has really struggled this year. My mom fell in February
and started having seizures. She has been in the hospital or a nursing
home most of the year after having knee replacement surgery
in June. She got to come home and move in with me briefly.
She totaled her car in an accident in September and
no longer has a car as a result. My central a/c went out this spring and a week
later, my washing machine broke. I could not afford a new a/c system so
I bought window units as I could to get us through the summer. I recently had to go to
court on a child support modification filled by my ex and the judge
ruled that the father no longer has an obligation to pay child support.
That ruling eliminated a good portion of my income, leaving me to rely completely on social security as my sole income. I pay all my daughter' s expenses including. Health insurance and all out of pocket medics bills. I do the best I can and I get buy for the most part but I have had two major problems which have overwhelmed me. My temperature gauge in my cars temperature gauge started showing that the car was overheating we discovered that the car Had a cracked radiator. After changing out the radiator, it is still trying to drive too hot. I think it is just on it's last legs and I really need a newer, safer car than they have right now. I have 2 young grand babies that I take care of a great deal of the time and with my mom not having a car either, things are very hard.

I don't buy anything on credit so I would never have the credit to buy one on my own. I just had to get a leak fixed in the gasline line coming to my house. That repair cost over one thousand to repair so all my savings went to that.j

No am a good person, Ellen. I am always helping others but now I need the help myself so very badly. Please consider me when you make a choice to give away another car. I love your show and I watch it all the time.

Thank you,
Laurie Meyer

Ellen, my sister has never had a new car. She is 54 years old and just gets by, so there will be no way she can get a new car. She had double Knee replacement in September and she is doing very well. I hope to take her dancing. She loves to dance. Her she is looking for a job now due to her surgery and having to be gone so long. I just know she deserves a new car she can depend on. she has a car her daughter gave her but it wont last long it's over 10 years old. I love her very much and would like for you consider her. Her name is Karen Dodson and thank you for your time. God bless you Portia.

A new car would be a Blessing. Our Van is getting older and has a lot of miles on it. We have a Mentally Challenged Son that we have to go take of on an almost daily basis. Go buy groceries, take him to the Doctors, and bring his clothes to our house to wash. Miles add up!!!Thank you for being such a wonderful, giving person, Ellen. Have a Blessed Holiday Season.
Respectfully yours,
Kathy Langhorst-Tienter.

The second gal to pick wanted what was under cloche number 3 and Ellen picked up number 1 and nobody noticed? What would the gal have really won! I'm just curious that nobody said anything.
