Hello, my name is Anes. I am 17 years old, if I were still attending school then I should be on the final year of high school. Unfortunately, my mother got ill from an acute breast tumor while my father has not recovered from a stroke. I am the only child and they only have me to rely on.
My everyday lives
Since my mother got sick, I have to take care of her. She has to be keep in the intensive care unit of the hospital most of the time. Gradually, I come to school less and less. I can't help it since my father is barely has the strength to walk on his own. And because of this reason, too. I have to leave my father at home most of the time.
Until now, we receives a lot of help from those who care about us. My neighbors and my friends will help us by sending us food, looking after my father once in a while at home. My friends sometimes come to the hospital to visit and tell me what has been going on at school. I really do wish to be able to attend school back.
Right now, mother's medical bill keep piling up. I am struggling between trying to find jobs to be able to afford the bill and our daily lives but there will be no one who will take care of my parents. Other than that, I have not graduated high school yet.
My father often feels bad that I have to stop attending school. But he also barely get by with the medicines that we can afford. My mother needs at least needs $5000 to do the operation removing the tumor, but we are already struggling with the hospital bills alone.
I wish someone out there will be willing to help me and my family. I really wish my mother can be cured soon and I will be able to attend school again.
Thank you very much.
