25 Year Old Asthma Disabled Army Veteran Seeks Debt Relief Solution

by Ashley Seawright
(El Paso, Texas, USA)

I am a 25-year-old veteran of the U.S. Army. I deployed to Iraq in 2007 and I was diagnosed with severe asthma.

I have had many treatments and know I am using the maximum medications. I have been having trouble breathing and due to this I am limited to doing things that I did before.

1. Free Advocacy Help
Get a real disability advocate working for you all at no cost to you. (...more)
2. Grant Search Online
Find grants online more easily. Search a huge database of top resources. (...more)

I can't walk up my stairs without getting shortness of breath, I can't run like I used to, and I have trouble sleeping at night.

I am currently taking online classes because I am scared that I might have an asthma attack or get sick at school and have to miss days.

I'm trying to pay off my school loan, so that I can get financial aid. But I don't work and it is just so stressful. It seems like every time I try to finish, an obstacle always comes along.

Although my husband works, our expenses are too much. Trying to come up with $10,000 for school is out of reach. I really need a debt relief solution.

I believe that a government grant will help me finish my education and be able to show others that no matter what obstacles the world puts in your way you can make it.
