Update on my friend's situation with WellsFargo

Last edited Mon Sep 24, 2012, 11:21 AM - Edit history (4)

A few weeks back I posted a couple threads about WellsFargo foreclosing on my friend Cindi who is battling a recurrence of stage four breast cancer. There's a good chance she might not make it this time.

Edit to add: here's a link to the backstory: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021214740

On top of that, worse came to the worst:

She and her husband Kirk are faced with a choice: either pay for the only effective drug out of pocket because their insurance company refuses to pay for it or make full mortgage payments. Before making that choice, they approached WellsFargo many times to work out a plan. They went through the same horrible story: the paperwork was lost, they had to start over, there was someone new on the case who didn't know the situation, ad nauseam.

Here's a link to the video I posted before: http://www.wcnc.com/video/featured-videos/Wells-Fargo-to-cancer-patient-Weve-reached-out-to-nonprofits-167507775.html

A week ago, the sheriff showed up on the doorstep with papers.

I was really surprised that both threads sank like a stone on DU. I'm going to try one more time to see if I can stir any human feeling at all.


Hey ya'll! Just wanted to pop in and let ya know that I'm still here and kicking. Things have been really wild crazy around here lately. There have been 2 follow up stories on the news about WellsFargo refusing to do a work out plan with us. I was contacted by someone from the White House (yeah that White House) about an angry email I sent in regards to the government bailing out the banks but this one not helping to bail me out. The Dept of the Treasuray is now investigation Wells! Our story has been picked up by ABC News and we are suppose to be on the Dr.Drew show on Monday to talk about what is going on! PHEW! Oh, and someone donated $10,000.00 to the trust a friend set up!!! Here's a link to the blog.spot another friend set up that has all the links to the craziness!


I've known Cindi and Kirk for over ten years. These are good, honest, hardworking people. Kirk is a former marine who works an extended shift to try to keep up, then rushes home to care for Cindi. They're both exhausted from trying to survive. It hurts so much to see them struggling so much and not being able even to hang on.

If you'd like to help, if you can chip in at all, here's where you can go: http://hopeforcindi.blogspot.com/

Please, DU, don't let us down a third time.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Second edit:

OneGrassRoot - you are freakin' AWESOME!!

Fourth Edit to say ONLY 16 MORE SIGNATURES NEEDED. DU -- you are awesome as well. Please keep your FB threads kicked and Cindi's page re-shared. I'm awaiting a return call from my congressman's office, just holding my place in line. They're good to their word and will get to me the moment they can (I'm a big fan of Brad Miller). Let's get those last 16 signatures! THANK YOU DU!!!

Here is a link to a Change.Org petition to sign. Please do sign and pass it on. If you would be so kind as to repost it in your FB feed, it would mean a lot.

Thank you DU. Thank you, thank you, and again, thank you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Third edit:

I found the link to Cindi's FB page

Save Cindi Davis from Foreclosure

Please share this forward!

Again, thank you DU!!

1. Maybe you can contact OneGrassRoot here

 

and have your story appear on Wishadoo.

It has helped the last two DU'ers who needed help.

6. I'll try to keep this kicked

The whole situation has been a nightmare all along.

The last time I saw Cindi in person a couple of years ago, she was fit and healthy. She had her beloved service dog Spook with her when she and Kirk came up for HillbillyBob's and my commitment ceremony. (They only live a couple of hours from us.) Right after that, Spook crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Only days after that, in the midst of her grief, she found a lump in one of her breasts.

Since then, it has been surgery, chemo, juggling bills, grinding fatigue, and unending stress. Through it all, WellsFargo has refused to return phone calls, switched contacts on her when they have spoken with her, repeatedly lost paperwork and made her and Kirk start over numerous times... the whole familiar nightmare.

All of her friends are at wits' end trying to help. Pretty-much all I can do is to try and spread the word. Maybe someone who's far wiser than I will say, "I have an idea. Let's try this..."

Anything is worth a shot to give some dignity to a terminally-ill woman and her husband.

We've exchanged a couple of DU PM's and have "friended" on FB. She guided me to WishaDoo where I posted this wish.

I can't thank DU enough. Everyone is pitching in to keep this thread kicked. I hope that eventually someone who can move a mountain will see us "shouting".

Look at the number of FB "likes". People are tweeting. Cindi, Kirk, and I are very, very thankful for everyone's efforts in getting their story out.

Thank you.

Thank you all.

17. Y'all are awesome

I found her PM thanks to your suggestions and sent a note with links.

Right now my eyes are getting a little wet with gratitude for all the kicks.

I sent Cindi a quick email of encouragement. We're trying.

The only other thing I can add is "damn Wells Fargo". They've had scores of opportunities to do the right thing. They've even refused to respond to the media. It just sounds like one big "f*ck you all" after another.

The inquiry from the Treasury Dept will likely go nowhere, but hey, at least WF knows we're watching.

19. We all do care about Cindi, Kirk and you. I'm so sorry that I missed your previous threads.

This shouldn't happen to anyone, ever. Cindi is fighting for her life, she shouldn't have to fight for her dignity and her home against a cold, uncaring, greedy bank when she should be focusing on healing.


Perhaps Wells Fargo customers can write to them and inquire about her and her situation? Unfortunately, this could happen to anyone and if they will do this to her, they'll do this to anyone and this should send a chill to every Wells Fargo customer.

Hang in there!

21. I'll pass that along!

Every word of encouragement means a lot to them right now. Cindi's a fighter. She's not going to fold up and accept defeat meekly either from cancer or WF. It has help her and Kirk immensely to know there are people in their corner.

Cindi was a school counselor for years. She gave of her heart to some really hard-core, troubled kids. When she was able, she made a difference in this world, put a lot of good in it. Kirk is a gentle giant who dotes on her, doing everything he can to get her through the pain and fatigue. Two kinder people I doubt I've ever met. When Amendment One (the anti-gay amendment) went on the ballot on in NC, they took the time to write letters and call their Assemblycritters out of love for HillbillyBob and me, never mind they had much bigger fish to fry.

That's the kind of folks they are. They don't deserve the hell that's been put on them. If there's anything at all I can do help them, I'll do it.

27. I'm so sorry for your friends. I hope their story gets some major coverage.Wells Fargo mortgage is

the worst. My cousin died and they started repossession paperwork within a week even through I had contacted them almost immediately and there was plenty of money in his accounts to make all necessary payments. It was, as in your friends case, a matter of stalling and lost paperwork, etc. If I hadn't known a local Wells Fargo bank officer personally, it would have been a real nightmare.

Kick.

28. The hell of that was

WF took over Wachovia where there original mortgage was. Until Cindi got sick again they were current.

It's a shitty think about American "healthcare" (if we can call it that). If you're very rich you can have it or you can just die off. We have the best technology in the world. Walking around folks simply don't have access to it.

Here we have a case where there is technology to beat Cindi's cancer. The insurance company refuses to pay for it because "it's experimental" -- even though the drug has proven effective. It's also hideously expensive.

So faced with tough choices no matter which way they go, no matter which way they go they're gonna get screwed up the ass without even so much as dinner or a kiss.

29. This story is way too familiar to me.

Terminally ill husband, Wells Fargo as my mortgage holder. I tried being pro-active, was met with a brick fucking wall, and as a result, got two months back and it took me over a year to dig out from underneath. The people on the phone were nice enough, but the corporate-critters were assholes.

I hope things work out for your friends, and I'm SO glad that WF is being investigated. And her damned insurance company should be held up as to WHY we still need the public option. I hope ABC News identifies them in their story.

My best wishes and hopes to your friends. And I'm sure you've read it, but there was an article here at DU about how herb not only helps with the chemo effects (something I can attest to), it may help in keeping the cancer from spreading. It may be tough for an ex-Marine to get his head around, but right now, it's all about her.

A BIG-TIME k&r

30. I think we all understand that herb

is the only thing keeping chemo tolerable and pain to a minimum. We're pushing for decriminalization.

Herb was the only thing that allowed my dad to eat anything at all when he was going through cancer. Cancer finally got him, but it took years; years I finally got to know him and become friends with him. I wouldn't trade that for anything.

And ex-marines are way-cooler than most folks realize. A lot of my closest friends are Marines -- and staunch Dems besides

31. Bank foreclosed on Hubby's Auntie. Wouldn't do a "short sale" I convinced him to switch to CU.

She put in a lot of work into the house. Increased it's value, but spent a lot of her savings on it, then the housing market sank and she got stuck with a great home in a screwed up market.

Wells and the rest just didn't want to eat the difference, have been putting that out on the consumers the whole time even though they got the money to fix these kind of problems, it's always something.

Glad Cindi and Kirk got some high level help.

35. The high-level help hasn't happened YET -- but

if we keep pushing, "notice" from the White House and Treasury Department might turn into "help". I'm counting on DU to help push. We've made a difference before. I know we can do it again.

"Good" is a powerful thing and DU has "good" in great quantity.

Thank you for the link to WishaDoo. It's worth trying every possible outlet to raise awareness to Cindi and Kirk's situation.

Somebody somewhere is bound to know some way to help: someone might be an attorney, someone might have a few bucks to kick in, someone might have a big stick in the media to beat WellsFargo with... every possible stone I can turn for them I intend to kick over.

Thank you again

50. If Wells Fargo was a person, they would have been deep sixed somewhere

How dare they treat people so terribly.

Thank you for promoting the plight of your friends. Sorry they have so much to deal with.

56. Evening kick and update

I just got a PM back from my US Rep, Brad Miller. Even though the Davises aren't in his district, I asked him if he might find it in his heart to riffle through his Rolodex to see if there might be somebody who might know somebody who might know somebody who might could pull a lever for Cindi and Kirk. He invited me to call his office in the morning and speak with his assistant.

It might go nowhere, but it might be just the ticket. We won't know until we try.

Keep plugging, DU.

66. I just got online and read it all. Oh my gosh....

THIS IS SO INFURIATING!!!

I'm going to add the link to the fundraising page already set up to the Wishlist post and start sharing and trying to contact anyone with any pull possible.

It sounds like there are a few potential outlets for exposure that could help, with ABC and Dr. Drew, but I hear you about needing to STAY ON IT for something solid to come through for them now.

I'll do what I can!!!

I know many of us are down to the wire, financially. Bless you all, and I pray we can all climb up from the friggin' bottom. But if you have just a few bucks to give, then great. If not, great, too. God bless you whether you do or not. Send some nice thoughts; that's also a big fucking deal.

65. Even FB likes count!

Write a letter to Wells Fargo or the media. Money isn't the only way to help.

Best of all, tell her you love her. The stress is killing her faster than the cancer is. If you're on FB, find her and just jot her a quick PM. I know that will go a long way.

If you're on Twitter, send a tweet every which way you can, every hash-tag you think might get notice. I don't know diddlysquat about Twitter, but I'm sure somebody here will help us out.

PM me and we'll put our heads together.

dog. I will go send her a fb message. Last time I asked, she told me she'd had some setbacks but was doing okay, but that was a few months ago. She's a wonderful and kind person, she doesn't deserve ANY of this stuff that's happening to her!

losing her house and me just sitting here doing nothing but signing petitions and sharing them on facebook doesn't seem like enough. I love that lady, she had taught me a lot about training special needs dogs and if she needs help, I have to do what I can.

71. Y'know? there isn't one

And I should probably set one up. Aside from the blog that a friend of Cindi's set up, there really isn't an "official" gathering place. I doubt that Cindi is really in a shape to do it right now, so I'll take that task on. I'll PM her in the morning so she's aware of it and fully in on it. If you want to PM me here or via FB with suggestions, I'm all for that!

As soon as we have something together, I'll be sure to come back, edit the OP, kick the thread and post the link where everyone can re-share it.

The more eyes, the better, and bless everyone for the kicks!

WF just farted them off.

Hey, it was worth a shot.

We have numbers here. OneGrassRoot got a Change.Org petition started. There's a FB page for Cindi set up.

If this thread stays kicked long enough, then enough people will eventually "like" her page and find the Change petition.

I'm in touch with my US Representative. They're not in his district but he was kind enough to invite me to call his assistant so we can shake his contact list to find someone who might can either lean on WF or may can advocate for Cindi and Kirk.

Numbers and pressure. That's all we've got, but that may be enough.

84. I'll kick this again. I can't really help...I'm two months out of chemo and going to school myself,

but I wish your friend all the best.

I just finished my fight with stage 3 colon cancer, and I know how hard the financial aspects can be. I'm at least lucky I live in Canada and don't have to pay for treatment. That said, I have an ostomy because of my cancer and the gov doesn't cover it all nor does it cover the cost of some of the drugs I needed. I was going to school to during my treatment and am continuing now, so I'm not rolling in any dough...can barely move some days, let alone work and go to school. Im only 33 so it's not like I even had a nest egg of some sort...sigh.

We cancer kiddies gotta stick together though, and I will send your friend all the good feelings I can. And if I win the lottery, the house is hers

who's a three time breast cancer survivor, redid her mortgage through that program about 6 months ago. She was in forclosure at the time. She got a new mortgage and her payment is almost $600 a month less.

Good luck to your friends!

94. They've tried to get into several programs

one of which helped me last year when I was unemployed. NC has a great foreclosure prevention program, but by the time WF had screwed around and "lost" the paperwork the umpteenth time, the mortgage was too far gone.

It's been a horror story all the way around. Cindi has been too sick to chase down a lot of the paperwork and Kirk has been too preoccupied. That's where the banksters get you, sigh. By the time I found out, they were pretty deep in the mud.

I've offered them a place to live at my house, if the very worse comes to the very worst. I'll be goddam if I'll let them live in their truck. It would be tight and there would be some adjustments, but Rob and I would make do.

Obviously that wouldn't be the most ideal for CIndi, but Rob and I have been homeless before. Damn if we'll let that happen to a couple of our friends.

with a ways to go.

We've done a pretty incredible thing so far.

The trial has been pushed back until January now. Cindi and Kirk now have a pro-bono attorney. That will help one part of the problem.

Can we help Cindi with affording her cancer treatment in the meantime?

Is there anything else we can throw into the mix?

Keep getting people to sign the Change.Org petition. Every signature counts!

103. It means more than you realize, Yardwork, on so many levels

Breast cancer scares me. It is a bitter enemy that has stolen so much from right next to me.

It doesn't run in my family. It strolls through calmly, getting to know each one of its victims intimately and personally. It is a thief that steals lives, disfigures bodies, takes self-esteem and vitality away. It soaks time and energy away from people who stress themselves to a frazzle trying to care for those stricken with this vicious killer.

Now it's attacking a friend a second time, one who stood by me when I nearly lost my own love. She can't get help from her insurance company, from the drug manufacturer who makes the last-resort treatment, and on top of that, Wells Fargo wants to turn her out in the goddam street.

I'm angry. I'm so mad I'm crying at work. Again.

Other than getting people to sign petitions to lean on WF or to make phone calls (I did call my US Rep), or to hang out a page on WishaDoo, there isn't a helluvalot else I can do.

But I can do this. It's better than sitting and handwringing.
