Hello. I’m Chris.
Normally I’d never, ever do this but I am truly desperate right now and am willing to do whatever it takes to help my family.
So essentially, since January 2019, my Dad was diagnosed with cancer. My Mom had a knee surgery that was botched and needs another one and my younger brother’s cancer returned as well. Stage 4 melanoma… He’s 26 and is special ed and autistic as well.
And all of that news came in the same week…
My parents can’t currently work and neither can my brother since he’s going through cancer treatments.
They are suffering and I’ve been financially supporting them from afar but just being an in-person personal trainer is not enough.
I then got another job serving, originally on the weekends, and now I’m serving in the evenings after personal training clients all day.
My savings is gone because I have been paying not only my own rent, but my family’s rent as well.
I have sold nearly everything I own on eBay and Craigslist and Facebook marketplace. I have brought used books to bookstores to sell and I have also gone to pawn shops to trade anything of value for cash in order to send it home.
My family, especially my younger brother, is my everything. Cancer is just awful and I’m tired of hearing my Mom cry on the phone.
I have had to put my dreams for my life on hold in order to help them as much as I can so that we can get through these tough times. And trust me, I’m relentless to help them and get them through this.
I’m currently working TWO full time jobs and cracked 80 hours a week of working.
So I have the intention to go online, creating an online personal training business. I have a plan and a mentor who will help me step by step. Yes, I’ll have to sacrifice sleep but I don’t even care at this point.
I am seeking $5,000 to not only build the site and launch the online business to run advertising and create traffic to the site, but also to pay for my family’s rent and food come June 1st.
I’d normally never ask or do this, but desperate times call for desperate measures and I am willing to do anything to get them out of this and praying and prays hasn’t helped.
Thank you and I hope this works. Truly appreciate it.
