Barber lives at the Fayetteville home with her daughter and four grandchildren. She served as an Atlanta police officer for 20 years before she retired. She stopped working because of injuries sustained when she was hit by a car at an airport.
Then, her adjustable rate mortgage payments went up by more than $1,500, her home value plummeted from $475,000 to $150,000 and she was diagnosed with cancer.
“I had to do this while I was sick, going through chemotherapy,” Barber said.
Protesters said they believe Barber could afford the current mortgage payments, but the bank is refusing to cooperate.
