In 2004, Ken Tilton and his partner Frank purchased their home in Egleston Square, Roxbury. At the time, they were successful business owners, with two stores and a restaurant. But when Frank was diagnosed two years later with stage four colon cancer, their life unraveled. After losing Frank, Ken couldn't keep up with running the businesses and ultimately lost all three. He fell behind on his mortgage and the home was foreclosed.
But Ken found the support of a group of fellow foreclosed homeowners and tenants who are fighting to stay in their homes, and now, so is he. Today, he says, "I just couldn't imagine not fighting."
