Problem after problem has struck the Albright family, most of which have hit Raymond Albright the hardest.

"We got here in early Nov. then Nov. 25, he went to the hospital, to the emergency room, and he was having respiratory failure," said Raymond's wife, Debra.

Raymond was an aerospace machinist for roughly 30 years and the chemicals he worked with have left him facing many medical problems

"The other lung is completely bad and the other one has nodules in it and this is why I have such bad trouble breathing," Raymond said.

Raymond's problems hit their worst point in Nov., that's why his family dropped everything to rally around the man they love.

"Because of my blackouts and seizures and sometimes to walk, someone has to be with me 24/7," Raymond said.

 This is why his wife can't work and while they get money from Social Security it's not enough.

"And it really breaks my heart now that I can't support my family," Raymond said.

So after being served an eviction notice on Tuesday, they are now asking for your help.

"The 23 of Oct. we are supposed to go to court for the eviction," Debra said. "We're not looking for a hand out we're just hoping that we can get a helping hand, something that can just help us to help ourselves."

Which is why the Albright family has set up a Gofundme page.

"You would be saving a life because I know that I couldn't survive on the streets or anywhere else without the breathing treatments and the medical help," Raymond said.
