This is request made with a heavy heart, all through out my parents’ lives it seemed as though life dealt them non-stop hardship. One example is: In the eighties, my mother had gotten into a car accident where a truck driver had tailgated her vehicle so badly that it launched her into a paddock and broke multiple of her ribs, my father at the time was a Pig farmer was dealing with a community attempting to shoot up his feed silos and mutilate stock, fast forward to 2006, my father is diagnosed with cancer and is dealing with the fact that he was had by a dodgy mortgage on his farm and my mother suffering from a stroke which left severe damage to her day to day functions. Three years later, my mother had major organ which had left her brain starved of oxygen and unknowingly lead to her developing dementia in later years. In 2011, my father had passed away and his death was not a quick or painless one, he suffered and that will forever be on my conscious, due to cold and borderline emotionless family members the funeral was a mere three days post his passing, we battled on for 5 more years and soon it came to my mother’s turn, she had been in nursing home for about ten months but she had passed away, a nursing home where they had been abusing and neglecting the residents, due to their negligence, she met her end drowning in her own bodily fluids and the same treatment had happened with her funeral, so here I am, I ask $20 000 to be able to fund a proper service for my late parents on my terms and with the people who truly cared about them and secondly take them back to their homeland of Germany to which they migrated from in 1960. Hopefully, you, the reader can empathise with my cause and help out, even if it’s slightly, every little bit will help in the long run towards the ultimate goal. I sincerely thank you for your time in reading this and hope that you find my cause worthy to help out as these are people who most definitely deserve a last bit of solace.
Hello. My name is Aidan. I don’t usually use things like this, I’m a very strong-willed, strong-minded individual. But I feel broken at the moment. I’ve just lost my father and my best friend in the span of little under two weeks. I only had those two people in my life along with my girlfriend, making it a grand total of three.
I’ve had to quit my job to resume looking after & caring for my grandmother, who’s in a seriously depressive state after the death of her son (my father.) No shit. I can’t blame her, I’ve lost a father – but that was her only son. She hasn’t got long left, and no child should ever, ever outlive their parent.
Why am I posting here? Because all of my savings have gone into helping out the rest of the family during this difficult time, funeral costs, ferrying relatives over to attend said funeral, tax costs, etcetera. I need money right now, and I can’t bring myself to gather the mental capacity to work.
I’m asking for ten thousand dollars. $10,000. I need a small loan (no Trump pun intended) in order to get back on my feet when all this is said and done. My PayPal is:
I’ll be waiting for the payment to come in, but I’m not expecting anything. I am exceptionally aware of the greed that plagues society in this day & age, not to mention the scatter of posts being thrown up on this site day in, day out. Something my Dad used to say was ‘You’re only as strong as the mask you put on’, something he got from an old Chinese proverb whilst travelling there. He always had funny quirks & sayings such as that. I’m lost without him. I’m without words.
Thank you for your help, strangers, if you’re able to provide me with any. I appreciate every single one of you. I’m not religious personally, but whatever deity is up there, I hope he/she/it/they bless you. Time on this planet is short, life’s too simple and quick to dwell on things.
Live well, enjoy yourselves. Thank you.
Hello I am the niece and the cousin to the two family members in my family dying from cancer. With all the scams going on I am trying to raise money through a raffle and silent auction. Tougher than I thought.
Joe is 38yo Cousin married 16 years and 6 young kids he has been diagnosed with colon and liver cancer twice a year apart. Surgery we thought got it all, Thanksgiving 2018 we got the horrific news that it came back with a vengeance his markers have doubled in 1.5 months. We are looking at weeks to a few months on chemo. No more surgeries to save his life. Has been an accountant for 18 years and still trying to work the best he can as he’s the sole provider for the family. It’s only a matter of time.
Nathan 53yo Uncle married 18 years 2 daughters has had 22 mini strokes since September 2018. We recently had him transferred to the medical center. Since being in the hospital 5 months and moved from suburbs to medical center as of December 31 his birthday. We have also found out that he has a tumor on the outside of heart wall grew into a major artery, brain, drenal glands and spine so cancer with Metz. This type of cancer is a lymphoma that is very silent and found during autopsies. He’s completely confused, feeding tube, very thin and frail looks much older since 5 months in the hospital has not walked since admission. He’s worked for an oil company over 20 years. He’s currently on long term disability his wife has taken Fmla to be with her husband daily since learning of the cancer recently.
The money we raise will be split between both families for funeral expenses, hospital bills, and the kids. My cousins 6 kids are home schooled since being in school. The uncles girls are in college that he was helping with tuition, form and food expenses. Both girls have had to drop college at this time to spend days with dad and looking for work to help my aunt as she’s not getting paid while on fmla. Our family has given to help pay parking, providing meals and doing as much as we can.
I have only been able to raise 1025.00 through raffle in 3 months. I saw this and Im skeptical as I’ve never had to do this and I have been in the medical field 28 years and see many scams. I can only hope that we still have a world of kindness without people thinking I’m asking for help for selfish purposes. I’m a giver not a taker. I’ve helped many in my lifetime and never asked for anything in return. We are a very close family, but can only do so much as we have our own families and bills.
My goal was $40,000 to give each family $20,000. Whatever we raise will be a blessing and much appreciated. Prayers are more powerful than money and we can wish this was a nightmare.
Thank you for reading Shanna
Hi, my name is Rebecca. What I’m asking for today is not something I have ever done. My family and I are very simple family, we always make the best of what we have. Here’s our story. In may of 2018 my family fell on some very very hard times. We lost our home,I lost my job, and we were forced to relocate with family.I am currently working as an independent contractor but work is slow. We live with my sister and brother-in-law.my brother-in-law was diagnosed with cancer in his urinary tract.he is currently undergoing treatment to rid him of the cancer fingers crossed. His mother whom is also in the home is on her deathbed. She is in hospice care we gave her round-the-clock attention to make sure that she is comfortable and not in pain.she is 82 and she has lived a very wonderful life.when she does go which we have very little time with her we would like to be able to do everything properly and we don’t have the means to do so. We also struggle with other things on top of this. There is a total of 5 children in the home, four mine and one is my sisters. So as you can imagine with not alot of income and that many mouths to feed it’s a little rough at times.I’m writing this because we’re looking for a hand up and we are most definitely a family that will pay it forward. This is one of the values I have always instilled in my children.and bless their little hearts everytime they see someone on the streets asking for money they give it to them. I hope to whoever is reading this that you’ll find it in your heart to help a little even a dollar at a time helps. We want you put Grandma to rest properly and have a little breathing room for ourselves as well.and also I would love if everyone could say prayers for my eldest daughter who recently embarked on the journey of becoming a Marine and she is currently in boot camp.so all of that being said if you can’t donate which I understand not everyone can but even a prayer would be much appreciated. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and have a most blessed day.
Rebecca and family
Hi, I am asking for help as I am desperate. My mum died suddenly in September (I had been caring for her as well as working as she had cancer), and I have been diagnosed with clinical depression so currently I am unable to work. I am a single parent who has worked all her life and even put myself through years of part time study to obtain a degree but at this moment in time mentally and emotionally I am unable to support myself. That is coupled with the fact that even though mum was a pensioner the dwp will only help with half of the cost of her funeral and so I also have that to worry about also. I am receiving some Universal Credit but it is pushing me further and further into poverty. To the point my son has had to miss days of school as I just cannot afford his bus fares and it is way too far for him to walk. I have sold virtually everything I own just to keep food on the table but I am completely out of ideas now.The depression is bad enough right now but the stress as well is just horrendous and I no longer know where to turn. I don’t want people I know or used to work with to know just how far I have fallen as I feel like a complete failure already. I am looking for anybody who is able to help me whilst I work through this stage of my life and attempt to heal and rebuild my life. Thank you for taking time to read my post. donations can be made to paypal.me/klh436
I graduated high school in 2006. I have been working odd jobs since I was in high school, a lot of grocery bagging, things of that nature. I decided that I should try to get some further education, and since I liked computers, I wanted to enroll in computer classes. I asked a cousin what I should go for, he told me he was doing computer networking and loved it. So I went to school for 2 years mostly doing basic classes, a few computer classes here and there. The town I moved to is 200 miles from my original home town. I roomed with a friend of mine who I started a band with, he played guitar, I also played guitar and was a vocalist. A year and a half into this, due to needing to pay for my living, roomate suggested I get student loans. I requested student loans for 3 semesters, roughly received 6,000 per request. So I lived off that money until the next semester. Well I got a phone call, my father had a massive stroke. He was paralyzed on his left side. I decided to go see him. A couple days later, my mother was hospitalized. They diagnosed her with an old case of hepatitis C: her liver was failing, she was at stage 3 cancer. My father refused to go to a nursing home, they were both around 60 at this time. So my mother decided to take care of him. Knowing this, I had a feeling they might not last long, so I dropped out of college to go and be with them. I started working factory jobs, and ended up getting a woman spawned from satan himself pregnant. Debt collectors started calling about student loans. I started a payment program with them, like ten dollars a month, but they took every tax return I filed. Then a few months later, my father died. My mother moved into a small apartment afterwards, and in three months, she also passed. My brothers and I have signed for her funeral, but none of us have been able to pay for it. They don’t even have head stones.
And here I am. Currently a car salesman with a ton of debt. 13k in student loans, a couple thousand in comcast and at&t bills. Child support from the woman I got pregnant. Another baby on the way. I know that people file bankruptcy in hardship, but I also have experience turning them down when they try to buy a car. But I do not know how I am going to get out of the hole i’m in. I’ve asked banks for advice, they have none. I am naive when it comes to finances. I have no one to ask for help. All of my family are basically loners. After my parents died, I might as well have died also when it comes to them. So this is what i’m asking:
What is the best way for me to get out of this? I have never owned a credit card, but my credit is HORRIBLE. Currently I am financing a washer and dryer. I have a title loan for the car i’m driving, but it’s a piece of crap anyway- 02 VW jetta. Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you. https://paypal.me/crbdonate
My beautiful sister, Jean, passed away tragically in a car accident and my brother and I need help to cover her funeral costs. We have our eyes on a coffin that costs $1500. The cost for the funeral director is also $1500, to get her body embalmed is $600 and the cost for her burial plot and gravestone is $800. The viewing and funeral service cost is $1200. We are able to cover some of the costs but we need your help in being able to cover the full cost of it all.
Jean Maggie Simonson was born July 18 1995 to Neil and Alissa of Saskatoon Saskatchewan. She was a beautiful young girl with an open and fun loving heart. She grew up with her two brothers, me (Seth) and Tanner. She grew up tough because we would always be fighting one another. When mom died in a car accident when Jean was only 13, she took it bravely. She was often the one to comfort Dad when he was having a rough time. She was such a pleasant girl and nice to everyone. She took care of dad after he had a heart attack but he was infected by his catheter and a few months later he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He lost the fight and he passed away on July 17 2013, one day before Jean turned 18. She became very sad and depressed and went to live with her Aunt Viola in Winnipeg. There she worked at a Tim Hortons for 3 years and then decided to move back to Saskatoon where she met Adam McAllister from Prince Albert. They fell in love and after a year of dating she moved in with him. When the couple was driving home from Saskatoon on November 3rd 2018 they met a drunk driver who didn’t stop at a stop sign and caused Adams truck to roll 6 times. Our Jeanie was killed. She was 23. Adam suffered brain damage, a broken arm, and few broken ribs. The drunk suffered no injuries. She is dearly missed by everyone who knew her. We all loved her so much and we all long to see the mischievous twinkle in her eyes, to see her flash her dazzling smile and hear her contagious laugh just one more time.
*JUSTICE & PEACE for Baylee*
Prayers and support are in need for Baylee Anna Marie Allen. She is a strong tough little 3-year-old, who came into the world fighting with CHD. She has had multiple surgeries on her heart with the first surgery performed almost immediately after she was born and the last one being this in August of this year.
With a few surgeries under belt, the coast seemed clear, however, Baylee was thought to of went into cardiac arrest Friday (10/19) where she went without oxygen for 45 minutes. Not much hope was given when she arrived at the hospital where she was presumed brain dead. Sadly, after many tests ran in the last 2 days the worst has been confirmed. The test showed it was not her heart to cause this tragic event but a traumatic brain injury. It was believed this tragic event was caused by an individual and has been verified after autopsy. After an investigation into the death of Baylee Allen, which was ruled a homicide by the Mississippi Medical Examiner’s Office, an arrest has been made. Baylee Allen died of blunt force trauma and head trauma.
The family consented to organ donation so Baylee could help another family in need. Baylee’s loved ones are now left picking up the shattered pieces of their hearts. The average cost of a child’s funeral is costly and this sudden tragedy is a horrible enough burden on them, helping financially any amount can help making it even harder.
ANY amount, small to big helps this family. Please consider donating to help defer the cost of unfortunate funeral expenses. If you’re unable to donate at this time, sharing Baylee’s story and asking others to share as well, is just as much help.
As the sister of Tyler Allen, Baylee’s father, I am making sure all donations are in the right hands so the needs of Baylee’s memorial can be taken care of. The total $ number for the campaign is to ensure I ask for enough to help, as loved ones take on the role of caring for Baylee’s siblings, Branson and Brooklyn. However, if Baylee’s campaign is blessed enough to be donated any more than what it is NEEDED for funeral costs, any and ALL the remaining will be used to secure the care for Branson and Brooklyn, as their lives have drastically changed after this life altering event and help with things from clothing, daily necessities, to maybe even Christmas.Even small donations help tremendously. From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate and thank you.
I recently lost my wonderful, crazy, loving father. He passed away at home this last July in St. Louis, Missouri. He was a highly decorated Vietnam Veteran who spent his entire life being known as a humanitarian, constantly sharing jokes with everyone he met. I miss him so much!
My life has completely and totally flipped upside down in the last 4 months with a few traumatic ordeals in a very short amount of time. Besides the unexpected death of my father… I just lost my job as a Motel Manager on Sept. 23rd, due to the selling of the business to new owners, so I also have to be moved out of my home by November 1st. I have no transportation or vehicle, or even a place to move into. Not to mention I have two savannah cats Khajki and Arreaux. I just found out today that I have inherited his estate and must be physically present in St. Louis to file papers in Probate before November 4th. And I need to find and retain an Attorney, UGH! I’m feeling so overwhelmed and don’t know what to do anymore, so here I am… begging for help. It has taken a lot of dignity and strength for me to ask the public for help, and I just need to get to Saint Louis to settle my dad’s estate, as soon as possible, which has been ransacked and gone through for the last few months by his estranged step-sons. Who just settled a Probate case in April of this year against my dad over their mom’s (my step-mom) vehicle. She passed in January 2016. The oldest step-sibling is trying to be the executor… which he has no right to do. My dad’s accruing bills are currently at 25K and the costs of his cremation and estate/probate drama (estimated at 15K), which is beyond my ability to handle alone right now, with not having an income and a savings of $150 towards gas to get there. I do have a ride out there, but no where to stay and I need to find and retain an Attorney as soon as I get there.
I appreciate and hold onto the hope that you may be able to help us out somehow. Thank you and God bless!! -Heather
EVERY DOLLAR HELPS AND COUNTS. Can you spare 5 bucks today?
On August 12th of this year, I received a phone call from my sister saying my nephew wasn’t breathing and to meet her at the hospital closest to our house. I immediately left and when I arrived I had been told he was in the care of his father and he called the paramedics after calling my sister because my nephew wasn’t breathing and was blue. 2 days later he died of 2 skull fractures and lack of oxygen to his brain. We then found out that his dad not only beat him that night but axed him into the coffee table because he couldn’t get him to stop crying. Not only did he spank him and hit him, he squeezed him and shook him and smashed him into a table but he also left him on the floor while he googled what he had done for over and hour and a half before actually calling it in. Oh and my 2 year old nephew was also in the room and knows only that “Daddy baby boom ambulance” It was horrifying and I can’t even Express what it was like to see a casket that’s a foot long. Now we have thousands of dollars to pay to bury him.
Not only did that happen but this summer I left my daughters dad for him hitting me and abusing me physically and mentally. I couldn’t allow it after what had happened and my 10 month will not be subjected to that type of behavior. Needless to say he’s no longer helping me with anything including diapers wipes etc. The best part is he’s now living with my sister and my family is not an option for help. I am now facing eviction, my utilities are behind my truck is going to be taken if I can’t pay it this month and I’m trying to work but two jobs isn’t cutting it and I don’t have anyone to babysit for me on a consistent basis so I’m falling behind quickly.
I truly have lost so much this summer, I am trying so hard and getting knocked back every step I take. My story is sad and my life is sad. I’m struggling to keep up as it is with my mental stability as an issue already I am trying to provide structure for my daughter niece and nephew but can’t get away from the effects that drugs and alcohol have trashed my family.
I’m sober, I don’t even drink alcohol, I’m 27 with a 10 month old and am a single mom. I’m working towards school or a third job but will lose valuable time with my little girl if I commit to those things and all I want is to show this little girl a decent life without chaos and pain every minute of everyday.
I need your help and can’t Express how frustrated I’m getting not moving forward when I do so much every day.
I want to change the pattern my parents have set in play for us as their children, and show my youngest family members they can depend on me and if they ever need a home or meal I am here. However if I lose my home I won’t be able to do that for them and they need it. Please help me start something new for a dysfunctional family and help me provide a better place for 3 children who deserve a better life.
Hi, my name is Anniqua Spencer I’m 20 years old and I wrote this story just to give myself some strength to inform you that my father passed away. This is what my Grandparents told me on how they found him. His parents went to check up on him because they hadn’t heard from him in a while when they got their they tried to get in, but the door was locked so they tried to use a spare key they had that didn’t work. Next, they went to the front office to ask if they could unlock the door for them and they said “No we can’t do that” his parents then went outside and were thinking of a way to get in. They came up with one my dad’s apartments was on the bottom floor, so they were able to climb over and get to his patio door which they were able to open when found him they told me how his skin was very cold to the touch. Once they found him and realized he wasn’t here with us anymore they called the ambulance. The Forensic Pathologist told his parents that my dad had been dead for about three days. They gave me a call and told me my dad passed away when I heard that my world was turned upside down. I really need your help, whatever your willingly to donate It would be greatly appreciated. It still hurts to accept the fact that he is gone so soon but I know god has him and is taking care of him. My Father’s name was Robert Erik Spencer he passed away at the age of 42 from alcohol poisoning. Thank you so much for the help, even a little amount is a big help for my father`s funeral. The picture is of My dad and me when I was a little girl.
