Wow okay I don’t really know where to start but I guess I should introduce myself maybe? My name is Charlette, I’m 18 and to put it bluntly my dad is dying. On new years eve I left work to find out he had been admitted to hospital following a massive seizure a few hours earlier. Fast forward hours later and we’re told there’s a mass in the brain that looks like it’s bleeding into itself and needs to be removed immediately. The next day most of it is cut out and sent off to be tested, to see whether it’s malignant or benign, primary or secondary. Cut to a week later and it’s the worst case scenario, stage 4 glioblastoma calling my 57 year old dad’s brain its home.
This isn’t exactly why I’m asking for money though, my dad was a crane operator and was the main money maker in the family. Last year I enrolled in a tafe course that costs around $1000. I had a stable job with a steady income and all was fine but with dad not able to look after himself I had to leave that job and take care of him while mum works to try and keep us financially stable.
I’m not asking for much, honestly I feel bad taking money from people but I have no way of affording any of my course fees and I’m in danger or not passing if I don’t.
I’ve looked into centrelink but by their calculations my parents are “earning too much” and my one day of tafe a week obviously doesn’t count as full time study so there’s no benefits there.
Sorry this is all a jumble I’ve never done something like this before, but I do hope someone sees and understands, any little thing helps. Thank you and God bless <3
