Karen from Illinois

I have been a caregiver to my wonderful husband Will. He has been sick for 13 years now with multiple conditions. I lost my job 2 years ago when I also became sick with cancer. I am doing OK now. However I have been unable to find work! I believe due to my age as I am well qualified. It's been very difficult to say the least. Now we are facing being homeless. We have 30 days to move! I have to believe that god has us in his hands and knows our needs are real and has a plan for us. Please pray for us as we do for you all as we all have struggles.
