My Name is Dillon, and I am the youngest member of my family. My family means the world to me, and they are the most important people in my life! My family has faced some unexpected hardships, as have many other people. When the pandemic started my family’s finances dropped significantly because my mom couldn’t go back to work and although my dad is an essential worker his job was inconsistent with scheduled work. Shortly thereafter my mom began to suffer health-wise and we soon learned she was battling a terminal illness, which has forced her to spend time between our home and the hospital week by week and/or month by month. In addition to that, my mom must see multiple doctors/specialists and undergo several expensive medical treatments weekly. The company my dad works for has been slowly making a comeback with supply and available hours. However, my mom’s hospital bills began to rack up and it really has gotten to a point that we can’t pay all our expenses by ourselves. My older brother and I are full-time college students and we have been working as much as possible to try and help pay the bills. With inflation and continuous rising costs and having to choose between bills, food, medical costs, and out of pocket school expenses has made it more than challenging to have the funds for everything, especially our house bills! We have asked the hospital, insurance company, and various doctors for some financial assistance and/or relief, as well as a little more time for us to get the balance down, but they threatened to stop the necessary treatment that my mom needs to get better. Actually, they have stopped my mom from receiving some treatments and medicine. These drastic inhumane decisions have forced my dad, older brother, and myself to make some very tough decisions. We began taking from other bills/debts to submit additional payments towards the hospital bills, and no matter how hard we try and how much we pay it always seems that a $0.00 balance is still out of reach! We are now facing losing our home and having to move. I sometimes feel helpless or like I am drowning, and I can only imagine what my family feels like, I know for sure this is unhealthy and additional stress that my mom does not need for her recovery! I am tired of the continuous tragedy after the next that has been happening way too often and too fast to my family and myself. Unfortunately, my family is running out of time and options. I am worried that my mom might not be able to continue her treatments or be able to keep getting all her necessary medications, and refills when necessary! I don’t know if my family will have a home to go back to and the feeling, I have is very scary! Our home has been our only constant stability and safe spot! I am asking for financial help to help alleviate some of the obstacles of this temporary hardship we have been dealing with! Anything will help and all is truly appreciated!
