I Am Disabled and Unable to Afford My Student Loans. – William

“Dear Steve,

Went to school and recieved my bachelors degree in graphic design. When i was looking for a job, i couldnt find one that payed more then $13 an hour so i stayed working in my trade. Several years after graduating i was diagnosed wit stage 3 cancer and as result of the surgery, my right foot is paralyzed and im not working. Now im stuck with 30k dollars in school loans and no job cuz of my ailment. I requested a forebearance on my loan for a year but the interest keeps accruing.

Is there anyway to get out of paying my school loan because of my ailment and disability?

William”
