Hello and thank you for taking the time to read this.
If I am here asking for help, it’s simply because I am pretty much desperate.
My parents bought their first home in July 1996. 2 weeks after moving into their dream home, my Mom passed away unexpectedly at the age of 47, leaving us all behind in huge grief. I was barely 18 and was left with younger siblings to raise and a father to carry through his grief. My siblings took some wrong turns and my father finally got fed up and moved across the world, leaving me alone to hold and pay for this house. I grew into adulthood having to figure it all out by myself.
25 years later, I am still here with my children, doing as best I can. The house grew older and needed work. However, we were floored to find out that our main drain was severely damaged by some huge tree roots and we had no other alternative but to replace the whole thing after we had sewer backup in the basement. I couldn’t possibly raise my children in such hazardous conditions.
Last week, we finally had the drain replaced. And then came the bill. $10,000. I cried so much. I work my butt off and I live pay to pay. I don’t live in luxury, I don’t have my nails or hair or makeup done to be able to pay my debts and feed my kids. But this one just takes the cake. I don’t know how I’ll ever be able to pay for it knowing that the bank won’t lend me anything until I bring my debts substancially down. But the contractor won’t wait and I don’t want to lose this home my mom loved so much even though she only got to live in it for 2 weeks. My children are aware of our situation and their anxiety level has hit an all-time high. And so has mine but I hide it to protect my children. I am so exhausted from having been strong all these years for my family, I don’t have the strength anymore to keep fighting.
So if you have some spare money you want to put into making someone’s life a little easier, and putting a smile on some faces, I would be forever grateful to you. Anything helps and all donations will be thanked for personally.
