Obama Letter Helps Woman Pay for House


A struggling mother of two is selling a handwritten letter that she received from President Obama to pay for her cancer treatment and put a down payment on a house.

Obama's January letter was a response to a three-page handwritten letter that Jennifer Cline wrote to him last year, saying: "I lost my job, my health benefits and my self worth in a matter of 5 days." She, however, included a ray of hope: "In just a couple of years, we will be in a great spot."

Obama's handwritten response to her just may help Cline move into that great spot after a string of travesties for her that began in 2007, reports the New York Post. She was newly pregnant with her second son and living in Monroe, Mich., in a riverside house owned by her then-boyfriend-now-husband, Jason.
