Woman in need of new roof

A dark cloud looms over a Mid-Michigan woman's house as she deals with the daily struggles of raising a special needs child.

It's the rain water leaking through her roof causing parts of the ceiling to collapse that has her most concerned.

"You know, you work hard and you just want your home to be safe," Linda Hasan-Holden said.

She said she's in desperate need of a new roof. Hasan-Holden said her ceiling is starting to cave in and water is getting into her house.

"The drywall is starting to rot inside the roof and everything. The boards on the rood are starting to cave in," she said.

Hasan-Holden lives with her son who has autism. She is afraid the roof on her Bridgeport Township home could come down at any time.

"That's just a big fear. Especially, at night after when you're sleeping and you get rain and I get up and I'm checking and making sure it's OK, making sure no more of the ceiling is peeling," she said.

Hasan-Holden said estimates on a new roof will cost her nearly $8,000. That is something she said she just can't afford. So she turned to the TV5 Rescue Squad.

"If anybody could just come out and help us get the roof fixed it would just be overwhelmingly appreciated. I would be so grateful," Hasan-Holden said.
