Still...No success but God is good!
December 28, 2016
First I would like to thank you for taking the time to view my campaign, I'm hoping it will be successful so that my mom can get proper treatment for her conditions, and so that my dad doesn't have to choose between paying for my mom's medical care or paying to keep a roof over our heads. My parents have never used social media, they also don't allow me and my siblings to use it, and they normally wouldn't like to ask for financial help from friends, family, or anyone in general. When I approached my mom with the idea of starting this campaign, she was very reluctant at first, but I reminded her that her kids and husband need her around, and dad is struggling to make ends meet.
My mom has worked as an Ophthalmology Technician for many years, but in the beginning of this year she became very ill, and lost her job because she had to be out for 4 months. She suffers from Acute Intermittent Porphyria andTrigeminal Neuralgia, also known as the suicide disease because the pain is so severe that most patients suffering from this incurable disease commit suicide after about 2 years. She is also having problems with her kidneys and lungs, and I'm so scared to lose my mom for not being able to afford the proper medical care. . Since my dad is the only one working, they are struggling to pay bills, and they are worried about losing our home. My dad is doing the best he can working 70 hours per week, and I really want to take the load off of him. Before my mom got sick, my parents had already had a very tough year, dealing with multiple deaths in the family, a family members attempted suicide and stroke, and also my grandma became ill and had to have emergency brain surgery, and my parents spent the majority of the year at her bedside in the hospital. As a kid, it's very hard to watch your parents struggle knowing that there is nothing you can do about it. So, I am very grateful for being given a platform that allows me to help my parents, please find it in your hearts to assist a family in need. God bless you.
