My mom has been there for every success, every first step, every broken heart, every victory and every defeat. She’s the one I can alway count on.
When I was I fell off my bike she patched me up and gave me a hug and some candy to dry my tears.
When my wife left she came and took care of things and helped pick up the pieces that enabled me to move forward.
So last April when doctors found that her heart was failing and only pumping at 20% I helped her at home, took over bills and started working 12 hour days.
She’s almost completely blind with macular degeneration, has severe hearing loss but hearing aids are so far out of reach because medicare doesn’t cove and we are already trying to pay for a $100,000 pacemaker.
And now she has been diagnosed with cancer, every credit card is maxed, the maximum equity loan on the house that was paid off is at it’s limit and she can’t pay the note.
And now we have bills from urologists, oncologists, retinologists, surgeons, hospitals, cardiologists between making sure she takes her medicine and eats and trying to work in the midst of all this I have realized I can’t do more.
If I don’t pay for my car she doesn’t get to the doctor or get food and medicine.
And if she doesn’t get this loan payment caught up which she can’t because she lives on $1200 of Social Security and a $500 pension with debt collectors out for blood I don’t know where she will be able to live out her remaining years.
I just want her to not live her last days in fear and give her the comfort she always gave me when life crashed in around me. And it kills me I can’t do it for her…
Please if you have it to give, I know a lot is needed but I won’t take a penny past getting everything paid off for her, and if you won’t miss the money she needs it more than anyone I know.
I guess in a way it’s a selfish request because I feel like this is the last resort and if it doesn’t work I’ve failed her.
Either way please consider it and know in my life even after she’s gone I will pay it forward to anyone in need anytime I have extra money I can do without.
Thank you for reading and please pray for her.
