My name is Caitlyn Britton, and I need money to pay for my college tuition. My family has been going through significant hardships for about three years now. It started in my Junior year of college when my dad had his first stroke. And he was unable to work like he used to, so my parents couldn’t afford my college tuition anymore. With that, I was forced to leave the dorms because I couldn’t afford it. However, my family was in Dallas, Tx, and I couldn’t go back home right away as that’s when the global pandemic started. And the airports were closed, so I was homeless for about six months. I worked two jobs while living in a hostel, hoping to get my own apartment. When I was homeless, I feared for my life and being raped every day. My mother got a job and started working to support me to go back to school. When I finally was able to go back and find a place to live in Richmand. My father had another stroke, and I went into a period of depression for a while. So since college was still on zoom, and the airports finally opened up again, I went back home to Texas. However, while I was home, I became my father’s primary caregiver; while my mother worked. At first, it was fine until my father had his third stroke, and he almost died. My father survived, but he’s now paralyzed in both his legs and lost movement in his right arm.
My family was fine again for a while, and I thought everything was going well, then my mother fell ill due to covid19. She recovered; however, my mother had to get her appendix taken out. Due to pus forming around it, the surgery didn’t go well, and she had to spend extra days in the hospital to recover. Which meant she couldn’t work anymore. That adds to my father being paralyzed due to his three strokes. Now, my mother has a tube in her stomach. Both of my parents cannot work and pay for my tuition, and they’re almost homeless themselves.
