Hello, my name is Carly Smith and I am currently looking for donations to help pay for my mother’s chemotherapy treatments and medications, as well as to help with other bills we’ve fallen behind on since she was diagnosed in July of 2017. Things have been really tight as my mother’s insurance does not cover all medications and treatments that she is receiving.
A little background here, my mother was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in July 2017 and began her journey with chemotherapy shortly there after. It’s just my mother and I and my son, and she has been unable to work due to her condition. I myself only make roughly $1,200 monthly and my mother’s disability is only $287 a month. In December 2017, we got more bad news as my mother was diagnosed with early onset Breast Cancer in her left breast (thankfully it was caught early on) but it’s made things worse financially. A lot of times, I have to take off work to drive her to and from her Dr. appointments, which we really can’t afford. We’ve fallen behind on rent (my landlord has been amazing with letting us make small payments every week but we’re still behind) and I am unable to provide the healthy diet my mother needs to get better and that I need to help stay a float to care for her. My son’s daycare payments are becoming too much that I’m afraid I may have to pull him and then I wouldn’t be able to work because I’d have no one to watch him, besides my sick mother. I don’t normally ask for handouts, but my family is sinking and I’ve tried everything else. Thank you for listening and thank you for anything you can donate. God Bless.
