I care for my mother who is 80 years old; 8 years ago she had a major stroke which paralyzed the right side of her body that includes her ability to speak as well. She also had to have her leg amputated 4 years ago. We moved to Costa Rica from Florida because my mother is from Costa Rica and she wished to come back to her country to retire and pass away. Unfortunately she had her stroke 2 years into her retirement. I am her only son, and we do not have any close family. I had to stop working when she had her stroke, which left us both living only on her Social Security, which is not much, we receive $1,133.00 per month. Our rent is $550.00 per month, paying for 2 health insurances my mother's insurance is $25.29 per month and mine is $45.49 per month. We also pay $110.00 per month for our storage of all of our belongings from the United States. With the remaining monies we buy groceries and pay for my cell phone. We scrape by each month with what we receive.
Unfortunately this year the car I own, which I've had for 18 years now needed major work done on it. I had to rebuild the engine, transmission, and air conditioner; the cost for all repairs came to $5,000.00. A friend of mine told me he can make me a loan of the $5,000.00 and to just pay him back. With what we receive from Social Security, I'll never pay him back. This past February 2019 someone hacked my bank account and stole $4,000.00 which I was saving for my Aunt on the sale of her house here in Costa Rica, which now she has nothing also. I filed a police report about the hacking and I have the estimate from the mechanic stating the cost of all repairs to my car.
I need to repay these monies as soon as possible! By receiving help and support from everyone would finally help me have peace of mind and the weight of the world off my shoulders. I have proof of all costs and bills.
Someone told me about Go Fund Me, so I am asking for help in the most humble and desperate way. I need help to repay all these monies and I don't know how. My gratitude receiving help from Go Fund Me would be a Blessing from Heaven!! I wouldn't even know how to show my appreciation for all the assistance I will receive from everyone!!!
I have sacrificed everything to care for my mother and all these obstacles keep popping up.....Please Help Me!!!
