Ok my dad passed away suddenly from covid on 27th December. He had no insurance so we scrapping funds to help where we can. However I feel I am going to have to finish my counsellor course due to finances. If anyone could help in anyway would be huge help. Even any advice or support in way would be really welcomed.
Hi my names sammie and I’m 19, my mum Kim 51, unexpectedly passed away 3 days ago and sadly i can’t afford for an average funeral which is around £4.000 and especially within these times I’m currently out of work and already in debt. My heart breaks as after her giving me all she had in life i can’t even afford to give her a decent send off so any donations would be appreciated so so much. Thanks for taking this time to help me i will be forever thankful of all the help. thank you!
Beginning back in March, I had lost my job and taken to being an independent contractor in the gig economy to try and make ends meet. At the same time, my father had started losing weight, complaining about not feeling well, and started becoming irrationally angry. I would constantly talk with him, bringing up that he should go see a doctor. He would always decline. These conversations continued until late May, and by early June he had stopped picking up his phone.
In June, he had become angrier, spending most of his time in bed. I had taken to stopping by his home each day to take care of his animals as he was very rarely up and moving. On the rare times he was up and moving, he was moving unsteadily at a shuffle. Compared to his ability to walk, talk, and drive just a few months earlier, it was a stark contrast. He could barely walk, and no longer drive. The food in the refrigerator was left untouched, slowly molding. Still, he refused to seek out help.
On July 22nd, one of his neighbors called the non-emergency police for a wellness check, as he had left his dog out while my father had fallen asleep. He was responsive, and EMS did a vitals check. But, he was spending more and more of his time sleeping. If he wasn’t sleeping, then he was complaining about how unwell he was feeling. It was at this time he finally decided to make an appointment to see a doctor for Monday, August 3rd.
I arrived at his home on the 3rd to take him to the doctor. He complained more about not feeling well, and refused to go his doctor’s appointment. That day I told him I was taking his dog to make sure that she would be cared for. I also tried speaking with him about whether or not he had a will. After a thorough search of his home I have decided that he was not aware of the questions I was asking him anymore.
On the 5th of August, I stopped by again. This time to do some light cleaning around his home. Around 3:30 in the afternoon he tried twice to stand from his bed. He fell each time, with his lower jaw looking as if it was trying to retract into his neck. I brought him a cane, told him that I loved him, and then went to the neighbors to inform them that I didn’t believe he was going to be living much longer. They, again, called the non-emergency police line. The police showed up a little after 4. My father was unresponsive. EMS quickly followed the police, and confirmed that he had passed.
Since then, I have been unable to keep my bank account in the positive, my credit cards are currently maxed out, I am unable to pay his mortgage company to keep his home from being foreclosed on, and I have been unable to take care of any bills. Thank you to whoever can help me. I feel like I’m drowning in sorrow and debt.
My sister whom has loved on Oklahoma for the past 20 years has recently died due to asthma. She died at home while her children were there in the early morning hours on May 31, 2020. It has been tough on everyone. She was only 32 years old with a 13 year old son and a 10 year old daughter.
It is especially hard on my family because we are trying to figure out a way to bring her body back to Arkansas my home state from Oklahoma. The funeral director says that it will be $2,700 to do so. She did not have any life or burial insurance and the family does not have that kind of money. It hurts me deep to know that I can’t help my sister in her passing.
This is why I am posting this because I am literally begging as this is my last resort. I am asking for $3000 to bring my sisters body home to have a proper funeral and to bury her in the ground. Any donation will help. Please open your hearts because tomorrow is not promised to anyone. Love on your family and tell them that you love them everyday. I never got the chance to tell my sister that but she knew I loved her unconditionally.

Asking for help to obtain $500.00 or even fly miles to Indiana from Florida. For Plane tickets to make it to a funeral this week for myself and my 12 yr old daughter.
I just moved to Florida from Indiana with my children and I just received news that my best friend of 35 years just lost her son, he was battling depression that nobody was aware of, he had went to the hospital earlier in the morning for stabbing himself, and was released home due to covid-19. A few hours later he began stabbing himself in the neck,heart,and other places. The police showed up and he was mentally unstable and things escalated and they shot him 5 times and he died. I helped raise this little boy he was 21 years old. My fiancé of 7 years committed suicide in 2016, I sympathize deeply. I have done public speaking for mental awareness and suicide prevention. However, with that said, I know my best friend, and I know right now in her mind she has nothing else to live for. I desperately need help going home for the funeral and to possibly see my best friend one last time. The monies is for a plane ticket and or car rental. whichever I can obtain first. I must take my 12 yr old daughter with me and that’s why the amount is more then it would be if traveling alone. Im grateful for any help and I am embarrassed to ask for it, but I have no other option. This means a lot to me. Thank you in advance
Funeral is for Spencer Calvert from Portland Indiana. Incase anyone wanted to verify my asking of help. My oldest daughter is 20. She lives back in Indiana with her boyfriend and she isn’t taking the news very well either. I understand the magnitude of help Im asking for, but I am at a rock and a hard place at the moment. I thought renting a car would be better, but they want a major credit card and I dont have one.

It has cause my bank account to be overdrawn over a year, I get paid account still over drawn. My fiance is on permanent disability. We have a beautiful 6 year old daughter who has autism which affects her speech. Last month my brother went into cardiac arrest. He was down to long , did CPR on him for about an hour he is now on a ventilator with brain damage not responding to any thing. Today 3/11/2020 talked to doctor no good news.

Hello to whoever you are that is reading this, let me start of by saying it is very much appreciated.. my name is William, I live in an unincorporated area outside Los Angeles, ca. About 5 years ago, My grandfather who was married to my grandma for 57 years passed away, which left her in a whole new state of unknown. I made a vow to the universe, that I would never let her feel worst by coming everyday after work for at least five hours until I headed back Home.. at first it was scary, because I had came off of being a young party cool life of the party guy.. to bring along with my grandma her not speaking English and my Spanish pretty rough to say the least. One day I fell sick and couldn’t make it after work for almost a week.. she called and I felt horrible just hearing the lonely in her voice. When I made it back the next week she asked me to move in with her… and that’s what I did. It would make my mornings a bit tougher but I had become attached and it broke my heart every night when I would leave after bed time.. over the next few years we became best friends.. dozens of 911 calls and nights up with her, talking, crying, laughing, telling jokes… you name is we covered it! I had a few really close calls and she suffered from so many different illnesses but every hospital stay or 911 trip to the er she’d come out on top.. and be back home as soon as possible. She looked out for me, she introduced me to a love I have never experienced before.. she was now my best friend. This passed July we celebrated her birthday and everything seemed to be okay for the most part.. until one day July 16th she was rushed to the er. I knew she’d be fine, went right over and a few days later she was coming home so I left the hospital to come and tidy up the house. She never got home.. and this is where it goes left.. I call the hospital and get no answers.. so I go back.. she’s on life support intubated.. I couldn’t believe it… they said she wasn’t going to make it. Sure enough she came back and was out of the icu.. three days later fell back onto life support.. this time it’s August and my birthday is here.. I asked for nothing more than for people to ask the universe to let this one slide, I needed her and I was scared.. she wasn’t moving responding or anything.. she passed away five days after my birthday and that’s where my heart broke for ever..
now here’s where I am asking for help.. I’m being evicted because of a miscommunication with the Management here at my grandmas apartment. I am not working and currently waiting for my ssdi case ruling.. its been so hard I’m backed up on bills and the managers have been very vicious… I am on my knees.. the rent has been paid but they haven’t wanted to accept it. But haven’t returned it. I am asking you please.. I have court fees , the little money I had saved is gone.. funeral life, I am currently looking for work and I promise you how forever grateful I would be and when I can I will pay it forward.. I haven’t been served correctly but I have never been in this situation so I’ve been doing a lot of research I suffer from major depression, bipolar depression amongst others. Any tips would be gladly accepted.. I feel like I am at the end of it .. and I am so embarrassed but I know my truth and I need someone to help me.. please also I don’t know how to post multiple pics or if it allows but I have the letter from the court and notices.. I just need to get on my feet until I get hi red or something gives in..
I am asking for any amount, even a well wish into the universe.. thank you. Since It says to include amount I would guess 3000.00
My son was a volunteer, and from the moment he learned he had an inoperable tumor, he decided to go ahead and go ahead with volunteering. His passion was volunteering.
A month before his death, he decided to write me a letter, letting me know that if he had the chance to go back, he would not change anything, because he lived for what he was born to do, and do it with all his heart.
I, of course, was unaware of his medical condition like everyone else, as my son did not want to give me any other worries, since I had lost my wife for about a year, with whom I had spent 27 years of marriage.
With her I met when I was 40 She was 35, and immediately we loved each other madly, after several attempts and 5 years after our meeting we were lucky enough to receive the greatest gift a person can add to her life, the arrival of our son.
My son turned 20, he decided that continuing his studies was not for him, and that he would feel comfortable doing something else, after almost 6 months he began his life as a Volunteer.
We obviously as parents, supported him and let him choose his path.
As parents, we had our concerns, but we set two simple rules.
“Communication and NO to substance abuse”.
Since these methods of communication are not difficult these days, they were done via messaging or email.
Several years had passed since our son had started on his journey, and from time to time when it was possible, even if he never asked them, we as parents always sent him financial support.
As agreed, our son, told us about his experiences and the discomforts he had encountered, and that doing those experiences was his way to repay life and the people who were beside him.
Two months before our 27th wedding anniversary my wife passed away due to a sudden heart attack, so as a father I did everything I could to ensure that my son could meet the expenses for the return, and give a final farewell to his mother.
4 months later my son left, and a year later, due to financial problems, I moved into a pensioner.
Then one day my son informed me that his journey took him to places where technology was poor or almost absent, so the only method that was still working was the classic one, paper and pen and by mail.
The waiting time for a letter varied between 3-4 weeks, and I waited for his letters with joy, as the only bond that held me on this Earth.
The years passed and communications with my son began to fade, meanwhile the past years had become 4.
Then one day, I get a letter from the place where my son was volunteering, and it wasn’t from him.
In the letter it was communicated to me that my son had failed because of his illness, and that they wanted to know, the due with regard to the succession.
I could not believe it and did not understand what aches the person was talking about, then I realized that within the letter there was another letter addressed to me and written by my son.
He wrote to me that after he had returned to give his mother a last goodbye, he had then gone to the doctor to be checked, because he had been in pain for months before.
Discovering his illness and that there were no remedies in this regard, he didn’t want to give me any worries, he preferred not to tell me since his mother had just died.
The symptoms of malaise that he had were nothing compared to those to whom he gave help, and he did everything he could not to worry those around him, avoiding to divulge his pain.
Now I find myself in a situation where, being in a pension, I can’t afford the costs of returning the body and give my son a proper burial next to his mother.
I never asked for help and begged anyone, do it now in the moment of need, it makes me very sad, so I beg you, I need £ 20,000 to help me with the cost of the funeral for my son, and repatriate him.
I really hope someone can help me. Thank you for reading my story.
I just want to start by saying thank you to anyone who is willing to help my family and I in this time of need. We greatly appreciate every bit of it.
On August 4th my husband got a call from one of his family members stating that his father was in the hospital on life support. They weren’t sure what was going to happen from that point. All they New was Anthony (my husband) needed to get to Indiana ASAP. We live in Texas. Already we knew this trip was going to cut us very short on money. He is the only one with a steady income and we have three small children at that. I stay home most of the time unless I can get a baby sitter and go do a house cleaning. Which is very random for me to get. It took us 12 hours to get to the hospital from home. We checked into our hotel room(which was just a hotel 6) so not much. We went up here on our last dime. We were there for 2 weeks on the money we had saved up for emergencies. Trying to figure out what the family wanted to do. Anthony being the only child was to soul decider on if he wanted to pull his daddy from life support or not. Consulting with his family. Everyone came to an agreement to go ahead and do so. Very hard decision for him. Nobody wants to see a loved one in that position. Ever. But his dad wasn’t going to get any better. He was suffering from bone marrow cancer and his liver was not doing good also. He was also brain dead from dying and being brought back to life. So with the decision made. He had him pulled on August 9th. His dad fought a hard day before he went to be with the lord. May god rest his soul.
Being such a bad running in everything we had to borrow the money for his funeral expenses. This put us behind and now we owe the person we borrowed from. I’m not asked no for anyone to feel sorry for us but to just help with what they can in this dire time. We literally put everything we had into this funeral and now we are struggling to catch back up. All we are asking for is 10,000 dollars. I know it’s a lot but that’s all we need to pay back this best and get our heads above water. It’s hard having 3 small children and only one steady source of income so please if you can help. That’s all I can ask! Thanks you very much for your time.

Hi my name is Ruthie I am here asking for help, on July 12th my day started off like any other day , I always call my dad who lives in new york to see how he was doing, conversation wa going great until he broke the news to me … My father sadly told me on top of having heart problems he had found out he had kidney failure, and his kidneys were in bad shape , he said his doctors have offered dialysis but he bluntly said he will not go through that he is tired of hospital doctors and he prefers not to go through all of the suffering, at that moment my heart dropped , he explained to me he is 80 years old and unfortunately he is tired and does not have the fight in him anymore and for me to understand that his day is coming very soon and he just wanted to prepare me. So as his daughter I promised to understand his actions and decisions. I next day called doctors ,hospital hes been in and got confirmation of what’s going on I was informed of he refuses dialysis his life expectancy is shortened by alot with this said they said I go ahead and start thinking of the future and what it might hold. The issues I’m having are as follows this is something that has came.up unexpectedly and my father has noone no family no friends nothing that can help him I live 3000 miles away and all I am trying to do is raise money to pay ahead for his cremation arrangements so when my dad passes away everything is good to go even me being here I’m Oregon and I am sure i will get my dad when the day god calls him. My father was refugee here about 60 years ago given a green card a social security and an identification card , and now that my dad is seeking help seeking his retirement they refuse to give it to him because they claim he is ILLEGALLY here which is NOt the case he has paid taxes for so many years and they have ko way of helping him now. , and because of this we have no financial ways to pay for any of the expenses that are arising, I am a mother of 5 and now have to find a way to come up with this money and I refuse to give up I cannot and don’t want my dad to die and be put anywhere I will live to have him here with me . Please if you find it in your heart to help me get some funds together so I can pay for my dads cremation arrangements it would mean more then anyone cam and will ever know and only God knows how much this will help make sure my dad is taken cared of they day he is called home, since the last time my dad has been in and out the hospital more then 4 times not doing well I just want to be able to take this one burden off his shoulder.
My mother and father both had recently passed away in a major car accident that happened when they were coming home from a business meeting…they were hit by a semi truck that failed to stop at the stop light, because he had gotten distracted by his cellphone. My mother and father have 3 kids, 2 being under the age of 10 and 7, and me being 19…we need help, raising at least $14,000 to cover funeral and burial cost for both of my parents :’( and to help feed the little ones so that they don’t starve 😔 if you would be kind enough to help us in this dire time of need…we will greatly appreciate it! Thank you and God Bless..

I am 35, and I’m drowning in debt.
I lost all three of my grandparents within a 3 week span last August. They hadn’t really prepared for any funeral costs, as most in our family are very long lived, so we all thought we had years yet. Sadly, we didn’t. I had been working on my credit score, so I’d gotten a few credit cards in my name for the first time ever, and used those to pay the costs associated with the burials, or as much as I could.
I’m on disability, and a member of a disabled family. While this was all going on, my aunt was put in the hospital for a flesh eating bacteria infection. She eventually lost both her legs above the knee. My mom has had three bouts of cancer- Kidney, Thyroid, and Lung. Thankfully, they’ve both pulled through, but with Medicaid as our primary insurance, there are a lot of medical supplies that weren’t covered. I’m a loving and dedicated furbaby owner. She has had recurring bouts of a UTI, which cost me $250 each time to get the tests done and treat them, but I scrape the money together because I cannot let her suffer. I’d rather go hungry and without, myself.
I had an emergency gallbladder surgery last week. The portion that Medicaid won’t pay is $4,000, because I was transferred from the first hospital to another, since my original stomach surgeon worked at the 2nd hospital and everyone felt it was best that I remain under his care as he’d treated me before for ulcers and Ulcerative Colitis. Since the first hospital could have done the surgery, but I ‘elected’ to be transferred, they aren’t paying for the bed and tests from the first hospital. The doctor on staff had never given me the choice, or I would have remained there.
Every time I think I’m starting to get ahead, something else happens, and I have to stand up and save my family again. I just want to not cry myself to sleep every night, wondering how I’m going to afford the next month’s bills. I make $700 a month on disability, and right now everything goes to the bills, but I still can’t get ahead because my interest rates are sky high. I make so little that no one will approve me for a debt consolidation loan.
My current bills are $9,000. I’ve managed to get it down to that from the $12,000 it was when I started, but with the new hospital bill looming over my head, I’m officially at rock bottom and can’t fight anymore. I hate begging for help, but at this point, I just don’t know what else to do. Thank you for anyone who reads this and might be able to spare a little help. Once I’m back on my feet, I intend to pay it forward in whatever ways I can.
In late 2018 my mother in law was diagnosed with T-Cell Prolymphocytic Leukemia (T-PLL), which is one of the rarest and most aggressive of all known forms of Leukemia known to date. Even with all odds against her, my mother in law battled and fought as hard as she could. Even on her worse days she continued to hold her head high, have faith, and continue fighting. At first, after being diagnosed, all her treatments, procedures, and steps required to defeat this disease seems to be going exactly as the doctors were hoping and things were looking positive. She had found a donor for her bone marrow transplant and all her test results were exactly where they needed them to be to move forward with the procedure. Due to a scheduling conflict the appointment had to be rescheduled for the following week and in those 7 days her test results sky rocketed and the transplant was canceled. The original chemo she was on had stopped working and from that point she began trying several different kinds of chemo, which came along with roller coasters of rashes, swelling, side effects, misery, and in her case an extremely bad allergic reaction. cause a including Chemos that had not even approved her specific type of Leukemia but she was running out of options and time and never stopped praying for a miracle.
Unfortunately, Wilma had developed an extremely severe rash all over and everything from that point took a turn for the worst. Within a weeks time she went from normal everyday life of walking, talking, breathing on her own, etc. A couple days later she was needing her oxygen more frequently, losing her voice, needing her walker to assist her getting around, and so on. Little did I know over the next few days that followed she would get even worse. Within the short time period of a little over one week the cancer had completely taken over and unfortunately, Wilma Jean Lindday, at age 52, lost her battle and gained her wings home on June 27th, 2019. Along with the loss and grieving, the family has tried to come up with the money to bury her and give her the funeral she would hope to have and we feel she deserves. It has been nearly a month and my heart breaks not being able to lay her to rest over money. I am asking everyone to take a moment and imagine if it was your loved one just stuck, laying there in the hospital because you couldnt afford to have her buried. I’m begging, please, any amount counts and all the prayers are appreciated through this difficult time.
Hey. My name is Kenes. I want to tell you my story about how and why I had to ask for your help.
Two weeks ago I buried my mom. She had a weak heart. She was only 61 years old.
She raised me and brother alone. She was a very kind person.
To arrange the funeral, I had to take a loan. And now, I have no choice but to ask for help.
My brother has two small children. He works on a construction site. His wife does not work and is engaged in raising children.
I work in the collection point for scrap metal. My monthly income now is 250-300 dollars (in our country, this is the average salary).
Half a year ago I was treated in a hospital with a diagnosis of depression.
My previous job was a taxi. But after being discharged from the hospital, the doctor recommended that I change my job.
Now I take medicine.
In addition to the loan, I have debts to the employer. He borrowed me money for the monument.
I do not feel strong enough to work two jobs or start a profitable business.
The cause of my illness was a road accident and a divorce from my wife due to housing problems. We could not afford to rent a good house or apartment. We lived in a crowded hostel. There was often no hot water. Very noisy and uncomfortable for a young couple. We could not have children, and this is another reason for our separation.
Now I live at work in a transport container equipped for housing. Once a week I go to the hostel to wash myself.
Because of the prescribed medication, I began to gain weight. For six months, recovered by 6 kilograms. But I eat less, I try to be economical.
I believe that I can pass this difficult period in my life and become what I was – a loving husband and a reliable brother and friend. Unfortunately, I will never be a son. Mom is not with us now.
Our biological father left us when my brother and I were children, and my mother was unemployed.
Now he is not a poor man by the standards of our country. He is corrupt and greedy. In our country, a very high level of corruption. Our father now has a wife who is 20 years younger. And she is the third after he left us and mom.
It is very difficult to live for a simple person. At the weekend we want to look at the sky, at the stars. But the reality is that we cannot straighten out due to everyday problems and stand upright free as free people. We constantly have to work so that later when we die looking at the sky without blinking eyes.
I cannot ask friends and acquaintances to help me, because they are the same as me.
My illness made me think about suicide. But I have to live to pay tribute to my mother. She always believed in justice and the right of a person to live freely and with dignity.
I openly ask you for help, even though it is not customary for us to ask strangers because it is considered bad form.
Everything can fit in three words – please help us.
