Adriana Sanchez's Fundraiser:

Save my Parents' House From Foreclosure

My dad has had Lou Gehrig's Disease for the past two and a half years. Before he got sick, he was a successful, active guy who always took care of us. As his condition has deteriorated, my mom and I have cared for him at our home. We've tried to adapt to the changes in our lives as a result, with my mom taking over his home repair business, and me putting off college to stay and help run the house. He's on life support now, using a ventilator to breathe, and is completely paralyzed. We've had many moments when we could have lost him, but he's held on through all of it, and my family has decided that the most important thing is to help him live with his family around him as long as he wants to continue fighting.

In the midst of all of his hospitalizations, and training to be able to bring him home after his intubation, neither one of us has been able to work - everything stops when he's fighting for his life. My parents' home now faces foreclosure on June 3rd. We've negotiated with the bank for months, trying desperately to get a loan modification, but we've been turned down twice now. We're desperate. He picked out this house for us; he painted the walls and built the shelves, and it's his home. This is where he feels safe, and if we have to leave, we face the threat of not being able to care for him as a family anymore. Doctors and caregivers alike have told us he's better off with us than in a facility or hospital, and we've seen this to be the case. We need him to stay with us so we can give him love, and help him keep fighting.

We need to raise $40,000 by June 2nd to bring the mortgage up to date. His health is relatively stable now, and my mom's business is picking up again, but we're nowhere near our goal. Please give whatever you can. Thank you so much for reading.
