A Plea for Help for my Niece who is Ill and Broke Down Far from Home

a photo by my other niece Christee Kyte of My wonderful niece Erin Kyte Huerta,


and her husband Melecio drove up to Washington from Utah to visit my sister.  Both mother and daughter have very bad health problems but really needed to see each other.  Erin had just purchased a used car, and when they left here to travel back to Utah the van broke down in the Blue Mountains, and was towed from LaGrande, Oregon back to Pendleton where the van stayed at a shop.  The vehicle is supposedly under warrenty, but the company is really dragging their heels, insisting the van will have to be looked at by their own mechanics in Utah.  Erin had just enough to rent a car for a few days and come back to White Salmon to her mom’s house where we are struggling to find a way to get her back home before she loses her job.  Money is a huge issue… the mechanic in Pendleton wants $2000 to even begin work on the Transmission problem, and estimates $4000 to fix it. It is supposed to be under Warrenty but the warrenty company in Utah is refusing to honor it until the mechanic tears it apart to verify the problem.  Bus tickets are more than we can scrape up, and leave us with the problem of what to do with her dog as well as all her stuff.

MY LOVELY NIECE ERIN IS ILL AND BROKE DOWN AND NEEDS HELP. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE DONATION PAGE FOR ERIN KYTE HUERTA

Erin is a youngster by my standards… only 36 years old, and has to wear Oxygen all the time and haul a condensor around with her everywhere she goes.  She has a disease called Pulmonary Hypertension, which she was told is Terminal… and so far she has been continuing to work at her job with a trucking company in Utah in order to make ends meet and keep a home. Being trapped here with the money used up is being very stressful!

So….. this is a plea.  If you can help her out at all the above donate button is linked directly to HER Paypal account (not mine) .  Also if you happen to be in the White Salmon area and would be interested in adopting a sweet but somewhat hyper young dog that is a cross between Black Lab and Border Collie, please contact us!  Erin’s email is hotrodcutie@gmail.com

and in her own words:
“I don’t like asking for money, but, in thiis case I really need all the help I can get. I decieded to make a trip to Washington to see my mom, family, friends, etc. And in the process of going home. My POS van broke down. I have a dog border collie-lab mix. Her name is Brandy. The only amount of money is just about the amount to get me on a bus. In which case I have to abandon my dog, in hopes to save my job and my husbands job. Yes, I do have pulmonary arterial hypertension. I have verry little energy as, this lung disease knock’s it right out of me. And with the stress of not knowing if I can get back to my job ok, has me with very little energy. Not to mention it is bad on my heart failure. If you can help, please do so. Anything will be appreciated. Thank you. ”

UPDATE:
