"Eva" (name changed) writes, "I moved to Advent Christian Village after my husband died. I was really struggling to make ends meet on my own. I didn't tell my daughter. She was already in a tight spot with her husband's health issues, and to be honest, I was embarrassed.
"I kept cutting my budget, skimping on meals and medications. I got really sick and ended up in the hospital. The doctor told me that things would only get worse if I didn't start taking better care of myself. I couldn't see how that would be possible.
"When I got home, my ACV Service Coordinator visited and saw how upset I was. When she explained the help available to me, I couldn't stop the tears—I was so relieved and grateful.
"To all the kind people who give to Advent Christian Village, thank you so much! Your help makes a big difference to me!"
