    Dear Johnny – I'm writing to you because my family could use some help, especially my husband, Rhyn, who is a local electrician. A couple of weeks ago, we were woken up at 6 am by our neighbor letting us know that my husband's work truck had been broken into. The thieves stole all of my husband's tools he's acquired over the last 10 years including some of his late grandfathers.  They didn't just steal the tools, they really stole his ability to work. His tools inside the truck were not insured and so he cannot go back to work until he at least acquires the basics. We are just not in a financial situation to obtain everything he needs to get back on the job. We have a toddler and it breaks my heart that this puts us in a situation of just scraping by. In June, I lost my job due to Covid, but I'm hoping to go back to work in January. (I work in the health care field) After I lost my job, we made a decision to sell our family home and move in with my folks to keep our heads above water. We've been getting by and are saving to get a place of our own again. But with this now happening, we are going to have to see what we can push off or postpone to get my husband back to work. We have filed a police report and are also reaching out to local pawn shops and looking on Marketplace, but nothing has turned up. The answer we've received is “there's nothing we can do.” My husband is the hardest working person I know and this would ease a lot of stress on him. I just want to find a way to take the weight off his shoulders. I appreciate all that you guys do and thanks for reading my letter. Thank you so much – Kierstin Who Helped: Adrian, Shelby, Chris & Pipefitters Union Local 533, Greg, Constentino's How You Helped: Gift cards to help replace stolen tools, Christmas for their daughter, groceries!

    We've known Richard Rawlings since hitting it big with his Discovery series, "Fast n Loud"...which is why we were pleasantly surprised when we found out that he had placed the winning bid at the recent Bonham's auction to win the iconic 1949 Triumph Trophy 500 motorcycle that Fonzie rode on the long running series, Happy Days. And what made the whole story hit even closer to home was his reason for buying it...to honor his father who is suffering from Alzheimer's, and who used to watch Happy Days with Richard when he was a kid. It was a bittersweet win. We talked to Richard, who was recovering from his company Christmas party (sorry!) all about it! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Dear Johnny – I'm writing you this letter because we have recently had a lot of sadness over the last few months. The day after Thanksgiving our daughter, Paige (24), suddenly passed away after a ruptured appendix. My husband, who is a truck driver, missed some time from work and we had to come up with the funds for a cremation and funeral. We live with my elderly parents to help take care of them day to day, but after a battle with COPD and hospice coming in my father passed away last Monday. We are still caring for my mom (81), but my husband missed more time at work and we are out of pocket again for a funeral/cremation. We have fallen behind on several bills and all of this right before the holidays. We have a 7 year old son that will be looking for Christmas presents from Santa and it's just so hard to find the funds with everything that's happened.

    Dear Johnny – I've never really had to ask for help until now. My name is Russell and I'm 55 years old. I hit a rough patch last year on October 21, 2020, I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer which has moved to my liver, lungs and near my brain stem. I was having headaches at work and went to the doctor for an MRI. They took the two tumors off my brain stem and then discovered it had moved to other places in my body. I can no longer work and I'm on disability. My wife has been by my side running me back and forth from chemo treatments to doctors to physical therapy. She does everything for me and is still holding down a 40 hour per week job. I'm not sure how she does it, but she does. She has had to take time off here and there to keep me going and sometimes we struggle to keep up on bills. We've been together for 27 years and she's done so much for me and I just want to give her a break and show her how much she means to me.

    Dear Johnny – My name is Meaghan and I've been praying for a way to be able to make this a great Christmas.   My youngest son, Grant (11), has Down Syndrome. Earlier this year he began to have accidents at school (wetting his pants) and something didn't seem right. I took him to see a specialist at Children's Mercy and after an MRI they found out he had a tethered spinal cord. With Medicaid and our stimulus check he had his first surgery in June of this year. After the surgery he began to have a stiff neck and after more appointments and an x-ray we found his neck was dislocated and he needed a spinal fusion for his C1 and C2. Post-surgery he had to wear C-collar neck brace and he just got out of his neck brace 2-3 weeks ago. I expected the first surgery, but with the second surgery I missed so much time at work that I had to leave my job in home healthcare. We are waiting to see if he is going to have to do physical therapy. The doctors want to see how he reacts without the collar. I started a new job in a dental office in October, but the time off has put me behind. I'm late on my electric and gas bills, but worry that I won't have much of a Christmas for Grant and he's been through so much this year. I have two older kids who help as much as they can, but I'm a single mom who's just trying to make ends meet.

My husband, Nick, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (blood cancer) on July 21, 2021. He has been admitted into KU Med to receive a bone marrow transplant on December 8th. We live in a very small town (Hume, Mo) about an hour and a half south of Kansas City. Thanks to some amazing friends who live close to KC, they are going to take us in after Nick is able to be released from KU Med. For all of the driving we've been doing we bought a more reliable car, but recently there's been a rattling noise in the front end of the car. My husband is a truck driver and has always worked on our cars, but with him sick I can't afford to get it fixed. We just don't have the money right now and I know my husband feels pressure because he's always been the one to take care of us and he feels like he's letting us down. We are spending Christmas in the hospital and it's sad to be away from our family. I just wanted to see if we might be able to get any help. I'd like to try to put a smile on my wonderful husband's face. I just want him to know that everything's going to be okay.

    Dear Johnny – I am writing to you because I need help. My name is Anna, and I'm a 65 year old grandmother. I'm retired and just make it by with my social security. I lost my husband, Michael, last February to stage 4 lung cancer. We were married 39 years and I miss him every day. It's tough to be alone. A few months ago, I noticed the ceiling in my room was starting to leak water from my roof and I'm afraid it's getting worse. I had a friend of the family take a look at it and they said it looked like wear and tear has worn away at the shingles and that maybe raccoons have caused some damage. He tried to seal it, but it didn't work and water continues to leak into my ceiling. I'm worried about what could happen if I don't get it fixed. I had a company come look at it and they quoted me $2000 to fix it correctly. I just don't have it and winter is on the way. I have family, but I know it would be hard for them to help. We have lived here for over 10 years and I know if Michael was here, he would find a way. I just don't know what to do.

    Dear Johnny – I'm writing you this letter and hoping you can help. My husband, Chad, has been a fire fighter/paramedic in Lawrence since 2001 as well as serving in the National Guard since 1994. In March of 2020, he was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (stage four brain cancer). He is just 48 years old. Glioblastoma has a life expectancy of 12-15 months. We are almost two years into our fight and that has included three brain surgeries, numerous trips to Houston for treatment at MD Anderson and a clinical trial in St. Louis where we spent several months driving back and forth every two weeks for treatments. In September, we received the news that treatments aren't working and the tumor is growing in a different spot. The clinical trial has stopped and we are trying one last chemo to help give us more time. Before Chad's diagnosis, we were already going through medical issues with our daughter. At 15, she was diagnosed with Conversion Disorder (a seizure disorder that can have loss of consciousness and episodes of paralysis). We both have always worked and Chad really wanted to go back to work, but in his condition he cannot perform his duties as a paramedic. He had to take a disability retirement, which is about half of his income. We have struggled with bills and I just want to take the burden off of Chad for the holidays.

    Dear Johnny – I'm writing you a letter because my family and I have a situation and I am at my wits end looking for a way to fix it. My mother, Rhonda, has lived in Belton, Missouri with my grandfather for over 13 years helping as his caretaker (lung cancer). My grandfather passed away in October. He owns the trailer that they were living in and I made a promise to him before he passed away, and it's the one thing he worried about the most, was that my mom would be okay so I told him no matter what she'll never lose her home. My mom is 66 and a retired waitress living on a social security budget. Most of my lifetime she was working 2 or 3 jobs at a time. In November of this year, there was some sort of glitch and she didn't receive her benefit on the third Wednesday. Therefore, she was not able to pay her lot rent. I called the social security offices to find out about the issue and they told me they were working on it. Now my mother is in her second month of not being able to cover the rent. The trailer park had been working with her, but recently she has received an eviction notice that she has 10 days to come up with $1,651 for rent and late fees. We went to the office and tried to explain the situation and they said her extension runs until December 10th. Like I said, my grandfather and mom have lived there for 13 years and have always had the rent paid, but this setback is something I never expected and it's completely out of my mother's control. I have since spoken to the social security office and they assure me she will receive her check in January, but it's just too late. I'm scared that she will be evicted on Friday and they will take property of the trailer. I just want to fulfill the promise I made to my grandfather before he passed and I just didn't know what else to do. Thank you for reading my letter and for all that you do for people around the holidays. – Kimberly  Who Helped: Manfred, Jarod, Jim, Glen, "Mister X" and Consentino's How You Helped: Lot fees and rent, electric bill and groceries See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Dear Johnny – My family and I really need some help. In late July 2021, I was in a terrible auto accident that totaled my vehicle. I had my 4 year old son with me riding in his booster seat. My son was injured during the accident with a broken jaw and a spleen bleed. He ended up having to have his mouth wired shut from late July through September 22, 2021. During surgery he also had to have a steel plate put in his jaw. My husband and I both work, but he had to take time off work to care for him. We have 4 kids and it really takes both of us working to keep up on bills. Our son had to be tube fed, since his jaw was wired shut and we couldn't afford an at home nurse to help out ($30 an hour). We are struggling. We were able to get another car, but we are currently late on the payment. I also have a disconnect notice on my electric bill and just don't know how we will do Christmas. Between copays and lost wages we just can't seem to keep our head above water. My kids are 4, 6, 10 and 13. My kids are so excited for Christmas and I don't have the heart to tell them that we're struggling. Our son went through so much with his surgeries from the wreck and has a permanent slant to his mouth and damage to his lip that needed 36 stitches. I try very hard to hide all of this from the children and keep a smile on my face, but sometimes I find myself in the bathroom crying. My husband and I are both hard working people and we've never been in this spot. Some days I feel like we could lose everything. Thank you for reading our letter and I'm grateful for all you guys do.

This past weekend her house caught fire and is a total loss. At this time, she and her family are living with her daughter and son-in-law, along with her son, husband and grandkids. She is at total loss as to what to do even though she does this for a living. It's been such a shock to the family and it's never hit this hard at home. Even though insurance will take care of most things, it's a process that takes time and they have needs that are immediate. She is such an incredible sister and she just needs help right now. She has helped so many people in her career and she is the oldest of 7 kids and she takes care of us all. She and her husband are continuing to work in the middle of all of this and they have a 13 year old son. She is lost and overwhelmed with everything going on and very prideful about having to take help from others.

    Dear Johnny – I'm writing to you because our family has had a rough year and we need help. This year in late July I was diagnosed with covid. By the weekend, I was hospitalized after my oxygen kept dropping into the low 80's. After a week into my hospital stay I had developed covid pneumonia and my oxygen was dropping into the 70's. Doctor's made the decision to put me on a ventilator. I was on the ventilator for over 2 weeks and every day the doctor wasn't sure whether I was going to make it or not. The doctor finally made a decision that it was time to get off the ventilator and do a tracheotomy and start a feeding tube. That started to work and I was finally improving. After 67 days in the hospital I now had a long road. I had to learn how to walk, talk, eat, and breathe again. I was also losing about 90% of my hair. I'm still on the road to recovery. I'm still on oxygen. But, I'm hoping to go back to work after the first of the year. I know it has put a strain on my family and we are falling behind on bills. Using the oxygen machine at our home has made our energy bill go up to over $600. I just want to get back to normal and my family to have a good holiday after these past several scary months.

    Dear Johnny – I'm writing to you for my son and family. Back in March of this year, my son Jacob (20) was complaining of his shoulder bothering him. He thought he hurt it while playing basketball with his friends, but the pain only go worse. We decided to take him to the North Kansas City emergency room only to get the news that no parents ever want to hear. He was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer called Ewing's sarcoma. He couldn't be treated there, so we moved on to Truman Medical Center and to KU. There we did get the answers and help we needed and we finally got him into Children's Mercy. His condition wasn't good and he needed to start chemo and radiation immediately. After several weeks of being in and out of the hospital and doing more scans, we got the unfortunate news that the cancer had spread even more. They are only giving our son a few months to live. They have been wanting to start a new chemo, but can't keep his blood counts up enough to start it. We were informed that if they can't start this new chemo, then we won't have much time with him. We are keeping him as comfortable as we can and we are praying for a miracle and hoping to make it through the holidays. With all of this going on, I haven't been able to work and have been barely getting by. This is going to be a rough Christmas and we are all pretty devastated. We asked the kids what they want for Christmas and they've all said just make our brother better. I've fallen behind on some bills and we are just trying to take our minds off of everything going on. Really we're just trying to enjoy our time with Jacob. If you could help us, we would greatly appreciate it.

    Dear Johnny, I've always prided myself on being able to make it. I'm a single dad who gets 50/50 custody of my daughter. It's a great schedule and works for both her mom and I. About two months ago, at the end of September, I lost my mother to Covid. With no burial insurance, I struggled to do what I could leaning on family to help. We got through it and laid her to rest on October 6th providing a funeral and cremation. Twelve days later, on October 18th, I had three strokes in one morning. I was taken to the hospital and had lost use of my left leg and left arm, which in turn led to a four day stay at the hospital. I don't lead an extraordinary life, but I always manage to get by week to week. It's put me behind and here it is late November and I'm just trying to scrape by on bare minimums. I've only seen my daughter a couple of times and it's hard for her to stay over until I get better. My heater went out and has since been fixed, but it did cause a spike in my electric bill from the space heaters. I just can't seem to see an end in sight right now. I just want to get better and be able to be there for my little girl, and have a little Christmas for her. She understands daddy is sick right now, but doesn't know full details. I do therapy once a week even though they wanted more, but it's $103 a visit and I just can't afford it and get my bills paid. I know there are others out there in need.

    Dear Morning Show - My name is Melonie. My mom, Pam, was diagnosed with lung cancer, stage 3, last year at Christmastime. She did numerous rounds of chemo and radiation and was put into remission. She's had numerous MRIs and CT scans and that has added up to a big expense for medical bills. (She does have medicare and they pay 80%) A few months ago, she went back to be tested to make sure everything was still looking good and they found three spots on her brain. Two in the front and one in the back. Cancer that was listed as stage 3. She went through radiation again, but they could not do chemo because it wouldn't help. We stuck with just the radiation and they said there's a good chance that it would take care of it. In the meantime, my dad was driving back and forth 65 miles daily for her treatments and the gas cost was really hard on them. They are struggling and can't afford to keep up with everything. The doctor has told them that it's likely the cancer could come back and also told them it could come back in her abdomen which would be harder to treat due to the location. My parents cannot afford groceries half the time and just have a really rough time making ends meet. They are the type of people who would give you the shirt off their back if they could. My parents have been so good to me and I would appreciate any kind of help that could be given to them. It's just a lot of stress on my mom and dad and I didn't know what else to do. Thanks for reading my letter and happy holidays. - Melonie.
