In September of 2017, my then 6-year-old son was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Since then, he has spent many nights hospitalized, in clinic treatments, or being homeschooled by his teachers. I, as a single mother, have since been out of work to care of him and take him to and from his treatments, while attempting to finish school.
During these times, I don’t want to have to worry about a car -- I want to worry about my son’s health and care. It is hard to give up my car for more than a few hours for repairs because I wouldn’t have a way to bring my son in if something was to happen to him that required a doctor, as it has before. I have never had a new car, and I am currently driving a 13/14-year-old car that is in need of some repairs that are hard to cover while being out of work. This offer of a new car – a Chevrolet Sonic – would be a dream come true. It would be one less thing in my life to have worry or think about. I would always have great and reliable means of transportation.
