Another Ordinary Family of an Olympian has Financial Troubles

Early today I posted a about Natalie Hawkins, the mother of the Olympic gold medal winner Gabby Douglas, who filed for bankruptcy earlier this year. I commented how refreshing it is to see a face to the bankruptcy debtor. So many people believe that individuals and families who file for bankruptcy are dead beats who run up credit cards balances and then file for bankruptcy when the bill comes due. (See yesterday's blog about defeating stereotypes at http://thekehllawfirm.com/what-kind-of-person-files-for-bankruptcy-defeating-the-stereotypes/). It is refreshing to hear from Ms. Hawkins that "I'm not even embarrassed" as she reported to the New York Times (see http://parenting.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/08/08/olympic-bankruptcies-for-ordinary-families/) Yet another set of parents of an Olympic athlete are struggling to pay their bills as well. The mother and father of swimmer Ryan Lochte are facing a foreclosure on a home they have in Florida. And the summer Olympics are not alone with bankruptcies. Dorothy Hamill the former queen of figure skating and an Olympic gold medal winner who filed bankruptcy back in 1994. It is important to put a face to the financial struggles of American families. The bottom line is that financial problems can happen to anyone. With most American's living paycheck to paycheck, it is easy to see how you could be the next victim. Hopefully more people who are struggling will speak up and continue breaking the stereotypes. You are not alone if you are struggling with your bills. Talk about your problems with experienced staff to explore your options. Call 254-633-2876 or email me at [email protected] TODAY for a FREE, no-obligation consultation. Let my family help yours!
