My mom's hospital bills
Organized by: Juliet Briggs
My name is Juliet Laspobres Briggs and I am a dedicated mother and wife. I owe my life to my selfless 71 years old mother who is now in bed of sickness yet unknown. Recently, my siblings in the Philippines had her confined in the hospital because she had lost her strength to do the things she usually do. After a battery of tests and CT scan, they found out that there are masses in her abdomen. She couldn't eat well because her system wouldn't tolerate and throws up. My husband and I tried our very best to help out. My husband and I are going through financial crisis as well. His working hours are reduced into part time due to lack of funding since his job depends only on donations. He works to help the homeless, poor and addicted individuals who seek recovery from alcohol and substance abuse. His I work as a Paraprofessional. Since this is summer, I don't have any income as well. I have been trying to find a summer job or anything I could get some financial help, but to no avail, it has been very difficult. I want to be of help to my mom since her and my dad had sacrificed all their lives to raise 6 of us and sent us to school. My siblings are doing the best they can to take care of them, yet money doesn't go a long way. They have exhausted all their finances and is in debt already. It is very heartbreaking for me to hear my siblings crying for help and I feel very helpless myself. I am asking kind hearts to please help me so my mom to recover. My parents will be celebrating their 50th anniversary in September and I pray that they will have time to celebrate. May heaven reward your kindness. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
