Needing 5 personal urns for my moms grand&great; grand kids
Organized by: Paula Hestand Wainwright
My mother was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in April of 2015. She was sick long before that, but the doctors did not give a final diagnosis until early April. She spent the next year in and out of ICU and hospitals due to her illness. My father and I had a hard time seeking financial help, getting insurance for her to cover medical bills, and have her taken care of properly. We finally had no choice but to bring her home and take care of her ourselfs. My father works hard for little money and I am currently unable to work due to my own personal health issues. I have spent the last several months taking care of my mother day in and day out. Cleaning her, changing her, feeding her by a PEG tube and syringe 3 times a day, and giving her her meds (the multiple prescriptions she had) every 4 hours daily. I have watched my mother died a little everyday and not being able to do anything about it is the hardest part of it all. On Sunday morning, at 12:31 am Mother's day, she took her last breath. As My father and I stood by her side to wish her a Happy mothers day, she began to make sounds that sounded like gurgling, which freaked us out into pure panic. This was a new sound and obviously not normal. After a few moments of this sound, she began to stop the noise and look up to the ceiling. As my father and I began to talk to her to let her know we were there with her, she began to breathe heavy. After what seemed like only 2 breaths, she just quit moving. Became very quiet and still.. I panicked and ran out of the room because I knew what I just witnessed which hurt me so bad. My father told me that she had no pulse and I couldn't comprehend for a split second what just happened. We all knew her time was coming soon, just didn't expect it to be this soon. Times have been so hard for my family and I. We are financial broken, spiritually broken, and physically drained with emotion. We can't afford a burial, so we are having her cremated. I would like to give all 5 of her grandchildren and great grandchildren their own personal urn of ashes. But, I can't afford it after everything we have paid for and paid on. I am asking for any and all the help I can get. I'm seeking to raise 1000.00 to cover the cost of the urns and to restore my mother's favorite hobby project she started on before she became to ill to finish. I would appreciate any help I can get. Thank you for reading, and God bless!
