Wells Fargo: Save the home of bone marrow transplant recipients!

After close to 180,000 people signed Kathy's petition, Wells Fargo has stopped the foreclosure and offered her a loan modification to allow her to stay in her home. Kathy had been going back and forth with the bank for years. Now, she will be able to keep the home she lives in with three of her daughters.

Kathy said, "I cannot even begin to thank everyone enough for the help and support. So much weight and stress has been lifted off my shoulders. Now it will be so much easier to concentrate on my first grandbaby, Kingston James Brewer, who is due in June.

I have lived at my home in Inola, Oklahoma with my three daughters for over 20 years. Recently, my home was renovated by volunteers from my community so that two of my daughters, Brittany and Casse, who were both diagnosed with a rare immune disorder and had to receive bone marrow transplants would have a home to return to that is fit for their recovery, for example, with special ventilation systems, etc. It was almost like an epiode of Extreme Home Makeover. Now Wells Fargo is foreclosing on my home and my daughters and I could be evicted as soon as May.

For years, Wells Fargo has lost my paperwork and given me the run-around, but I never missed a mortgage payment. I’m a single mom and my family has been through a lot in the last few years. I had to take off months of work to care for my daughters while they received surgeries out of state and medical bills piled up. I’m not asking for a handout. I just want to be able to live in the home I’ve lived in for years with my daughters and to continue to make mortgage payments at a reasonable level.

Will you join me in asking Wells Fargo to stop the foreclosure on my home and to grant me a permanent loan modification?

      I finally talked to Wells Fargo, after reviewing all of the paperwork I sent them, they agreed that HomEq was in error when they filed forclosure. Wells Fargo is going to do a loan modification and I get to keep my home. I don't have any details as far as numbers go they are sending me the paperwork to fill out. I am just happy that I get to keep my home.

      I received a call from Sadie Walker with Wells Fargo today she told me "The forclosure has been stopped and we are working on a resolution you will be very pleased with". I cannot even begin to thank everyone enough for the help and support. So much weight and stress has been lifted off my shoulders. Now it will be so much easier to concentrate on my first grandbaby. Kingston James Brewer is due June 11. THANK YOU AGAIN! I will post the resolution they give me when I get it.

    3. I got a call from Wells Fargo today. Have to call them back tomorrow.

      I'm in real estate ... and WELLS is THE WORST. And my Mother had a mort w/ WF ... and after her husband passed away ... I was reorganizing her entire life .. starting with the mort terms. Everything they quoted me wrong ... and, in the 9th hour ,,, they didn't give me the mort option I wanted. The loan was supposed to close by the end of Feb that year. They told me that I didn't have to pay the mort pymt until the new loan was due. The new loan didn't come thru until the middle of April ... and I rec'd harrassing calls from one of the dept inWF .. telling me we were in default. One dept doesn't know what the other dept is doing. And it's always in the 9th hour that they come up w/ some other document that they want. God forbid they requested from the beginning. They're a mess. A BAD GROUP!!!! I finally got the mort approved. I found out that the loan officer wouldn't get his commission if I closed the loan w/in 4 mths. I called another bank I work with ... told them to get on with a new loan for my Mother ... and I closed it immediately ... within a month's time. So my loan officer never got his commission. I wrote him and told him that I'm sure he understands that I had to do what was best financially for my Mother. ooooops. Can't STAND WELLS FARGO. I've closed every account with them .. telling them in no uncertain terms as to "WHY".

      Because I lost my sister and her son to Leukemia after bone marrow transplants and I know that what this family and those children need is some consistency in their lives - Being able to stay in their home will decrease their stress levels making healing more productive. Stress can diminish your immune system - something these girls conditions have already compromised. God Bless Kathy and her family!
