Please help our family survive until my oldest sister finishes her bachelor’s degree by Summer 2019.
Our oldest sister who is in nursing school is currently a full-time student, and we thought it best if she can focus her time and effort to finishing her BSN degree as soon as possible. She is a smart and hard working student, who really has a heart and passion for nursing. Not only is she taking 15 units this semester, but she also helps out at home for my sister and I.
We need at least $50,000 to help us tide through until our sister finishes her nursing degree by Summer 2019. Our bank account currently has $200 but our monthly living expenses is about $5,000 per month – includes our rent and utilities, groceries, and credit card minimum payment.
I work as an assistant to a professor back when I was still going to college, and my sister applied for work-study this year, but since we both are minimum wage seasonal part-time earners, we don’t earn enough to support our monthly needs. We are now unable to pay for our rent and utility bills and might have to be evicted by the landlord.
Our parents are unable to work anymore. Our mom was laid off from work and couldn’t find another job. Then on July of this year, our mom fell in the shower and has been bedbound since. We also started noticing changes in her personality since she had been a cancer survivor who had undergone surgery on her brain. We suspect that it may be early onset dementia as a side effect from the surgery, but our circumstance prevents us from being able to take her to the doctor. She doesn’t mention it but I know that she blames herself for leaving my sisters and I in this situation. Her impulsiveness led to some unnecessary and unwarranted spending and failure to finance properly led to our current credit card debt situation. Our father accompanies and cares for our mom. He is weak-hearted and his blood pressure tends to fluctuate easily, so we do not expect him to work.
If we could receive the money and survive till my sister finishes her degree, she will be able to work and support our family. We need help getting our entire family to a better place. We are desperately asking for any amount of help. We’re three hardworking sisters who can only rely on each other can only ask for your consideration and kindness.
