Wells Fargo: Stop the foreclosure on a stage 4 cancer victim's home

    1. Kate Livingston
    2. Petition by

      Kate Livingston

      Chaparral, NM

Cindi Silvers Davis and her husband, have tried very hard to work with their bank, Wells Fargo, but they say they have been mislead, they have been treated poorly, and now Wells Fargo is trying to put an advanced stage cancer victim out on the street.

Cindi has been a friend of mine for over five years. She lives in Mount Holly, North Carolina with her husband of 20 years, Kirk, and her 7 Special Needs pets, including her Deaf Service Dog, Katie. Cindi has fought breast cancer since 2008 and unfortunately, she's progressed to Stage 4 Breast Cancer. Cindi is such a caring person, she even volunteers for a charity to help people who have lost their jobs and homes care for their pets. Now, it's time for people to care for Cindi and show their support.

As Cindi and Kirk struggled to pay for the additional cancer treatment she requires, they had trouble paying the full mortgage payments each month, but they tried to pay as much as they could. Wells Fargo refused to accept partial payments -- and they are adding fees and penalties too. Cindi explained the situation to Wells Fargo and a bank representative said they would consider a solution, but the next she heard from the bank was a foreclosure notice.

I won't sit back and watch Wells Fargo take away my friend Cindi's home. Cindi's friends all across the country have held fundraisers to help Cindi out with her treatment. We've held yard sales and raffles. Cindi, who loves quilting, even made quilts to sell, but we won't be able to raise enough to save her home, but we need to make sure Cindi has the treatment and medication she needs. All donations will be aimed at her treatment at this time. Cindi wants to keep up with her payments, but she needs help. I've signed other petitions that helped homeowners save their homes and now I'm hoping you will join me to help save Cindi's home.

Please join me in asking Wells Fargo to stop the foreclosure on Cindi's home and negotiate a loan modification with her to help her save her home. This is the link to the blog with Cindi's backstory and donor link: http://hopeforcindi.blogspot.com

    6. Wells Fargo Not Playing Nice Yet!

      Kate Livingston
      Petition Organizer

      A recent follow up report stated that Wells Fargo had put off the foreclosure trial until 2013 to try and work with Cindi and Kirk. Well, they put it off from Dec. 19 until Jan. 3! Big whoopie! The reporter didn't mention that it wasn't even a 2 week difference and of course the week in between Christmas and New Years the banks and businesses don't do much!

      Why would you take a home from someone so sick. Programs should be in place for illness.

      Wells Fargo is a mean bank by reputation. They need to grow up and stop kicking people while they are down.

      my mom had stage 3 inflammatory breast cancer and its very difficult to go throw and expensive the doctors say that stress can cause the cancer to grow the patient needs to be in a stress free environment during treatment and after to take her house away would cause stress and could cause more mediacl problems with interference with her treatment
