ok- this is a first for me, and I’m not quite sure where to start. My name is Crystal and I’m trying to save my parents home by raising money for their repairs and debt. My parents have been married for 40 yrs, which is unheard of these days, and they have given every cent they’ve ever made to try and provide for their children and grandchildren. They are truly the best people out there and my heart breaks everyday to see them struggle so badly. I guess as a child you never really understand the true hardships your parents are going through since they are always trying to protect their family. Only now as an adult do I truly realize how badly they are struggling. My mother was laid off from her job 3 years ago and since then has went through multiple neck and back surgeries, leaving her practically disabled. My father tries to work about 70 hrs a week, in his 60s, to try to keep them going. Their kitchen is fully gutted and not functional – sitting on almost $30k in needed repairs and restoration. It’s unliveable conditions. My parents have too much pride to ask for help, and I have $50k in debt myself from student loans, which is what has landed me here. I couldn’t imagine their humiliation if I spreads this across Facebook amongst people they know. They are too old to have to feel like they’ve failed. It just isn’t fair. I’m hoping someone out there can find it in their heart to help. My parents deserve the world, and at the very least, deserve the ability to get their home back together.
