Thank you for reading this.
My name is Alicia and I am a lucky mommy to 2 beautiful boys. The 2 beautiful boys I speak about came with some unfortunate circumstances. Thank God it was me because I was strong enough to handle the ups and downs and the struggle that came with thia circumstances. Now that the hardest parts are over, medically, I’m finding it hard to make it financially.
My first born, James, was born at 1 pound 7 oz at just 24 weeks. His eyes were still fused shut for about 3 weeks after he was born (just to give an idea of how premature he was). We had a 5 month NICU stay in Indianapolis, IN before I was able to take him home. I stayed everyday, which I credit to him being so strong and healthy now. No long term complications, no defects, no surgeries. He truly is a miracle.
My second born, Jaxon, was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome or HLHS. His first open heart surgery was when he was 4 days old. His second when he was 6 months old and his very last one just a few months ago. The total of PICU stays add up to 6 minths. He’s the strongest, toughest, and most independent little babes you’ve ever met.
With the worst of it in the past, I’m finding it hard to provide and give my children the necessities. Let alone, anything extra. I went into debt and used up all options while unable to work so I could be with my kids. I can only afford rent and utilities and some groceries. I’m in debt and feel like there’s no way out.
I’m asking for anything because anything would help. We didn’t fight so hard for life just to barely live. If someone is interested in total debt, my total debt is around 65,000. I would be happy with just $300 to get me to and from Thanksgiving next week with family. I would be happy with just enough for dinner tonight.
Thanks for reading. I’m not good with asking for help or handouts but I figured I would give it a shot. I really just want us to be ok.
