Hello, this is extremely difficult to write. I am seeking assistance in saving my mothers home. In 2022 her health deteriorated rapidly and she was not able to get out of bed most days. Her doctor was doing testing and scans for months to try to figure out the cause.
She is a single mother who has worked her absolute hardest to provide us everything we needed to survive. She broke her ribs and she still worked through the excruciating pain to make sure we had a roof over our heads and food to eat. Six years ago she worked extra hard to save up to finally build her own home. I’ve never seen her so happy and content in my life. For the first time she felt financially secure and like she had finally achieved one of her goals in life. Fast forward six years and she is so sad and emotional and broken by this terrible disease.
Her symptoms include; extreme light sensitivity, skin rashes and sores, burning/itching sensation on skin, nausea/vomiting, major food sensitivities, loss of appetite, weight loss, hair loss, shaking, hot and coldness (not able to self regulate her temperature), ulcers in mouth and throat, kidney pain/damage, joint/muscle pain, some days she can barely walk. There’s more I just can’t think of them all.
After a lot of testing and waiting for specialist appointments in February 2023 she was diagnosed with severe Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis. She is on a treatment plan but that is constantly changing and if she gets worse there’s a chance she will need chemotherapy to treat the severe Lupus symptoms.
She lost her job because she’s not able to work at all. She’s managed to hold on to her home for this long and I am terrified that I’m not able to help save it. I am trying to launch my own business to retire my mum and give my family financial security but I am scared I am not going to be able to save it in time. She has had some defaults to her mortgage and is talking about putting it up for sale soon around Christmas time before the bank decides to for-close. With ongoing constantly changing medication costs and the rate increases and higher cost of living she can not hold on much longer. She may never be able to work again and requires carers and physiotherapy and cleaners. Our family and I are helping her as much as we can but we aren’t able to support the house for much longer. If I could buy it I would but I’m not in that financial position yet.
She has never had a lot but she has been kind and helpful to everyone she comes across. She has always helped friends, family and strangers in need wherever she could. She opened up her home and gave people in need food and shelter. She was by my side when I nearly lost my premature baby. She prayed with us and helped look after my other 2 children who love their ‘grammy’ very much. It has been so horrible seeing her so ill and she deserves her home that she worked so hard to get.
She has always taught our family to be kind and help others wherever the opportunity presents itself and to always pay it forward. It is terrifying me that I’m not yet able to pay her back for everything she’s done to help me and everyone who she showed kindness to. She doesn’t deserve to lose her home. Please help her, I don’t know what to do. I just want to retire my mother so she can live comfortably in her home in peace and get the care and medications she needs without the financial burden and stress that she has lived with her entire life.
I have never asked my money in my life and this is something that I wish I did not need to resort to. My dream has always been to achieve financial security for my family and it keeps me up at night knowing that I’m not doing a good enough job. I am working as hard as I can and I hope that one day I can help many people achieve their goals in life. If you would like to give something towards her bills or medication or mortgage that would be such a blessing to her. paypal.me/AJHerbert3
