Now I'm going to tell you the story of a warrior, a single mother who is now suffering from one of her worst health crises. My mother is Briceida, she is 57 years old and despite her advanced age she still works to give her children a better future.
She has recently been diagnosed with fissures in the bones of her left foot, preventing mobility almost completely for more than 3 months now. In addition to a respiratory failure that already suffers.
Today I come to you to touch the depths of your hearts and thus get some help and compassion for a human being who can not work to feed her sons and daughter. We need the help from all those who want to help a single mother with her 5 children.
Currently I am the only one of my brothers who can work to help my mother with her health situation and my family basic needs which are; rent, food, school and so on. And sometimes it's hard to make decisions like either eat or pay rent but not both. I wish no one has to go through this.
Right now my mother does not have health insurance that can cover the procedure she requires.
She requires a re-calcification of the bones in her foot in addition to other medications. Basically she requires 6 infiltrations of calcium directly into her bones, a procedure that the current public health system does not cover, therefore, the patient must pay for the procedure at 100%. And there's no support for the recovery time from the Health Insurance System.
Additionally, each month we have to pay a lease value of a SiPAP equipment, since my mother suffers from sleep apnea due to her high weight that her health insurance does not contemplate as a disease.
I ask for your help because it is not much money, but at this time my income is not enough not even to pay 1/3 of what is needed.
Now my story is this. My name is Andres and I am 19 years old. I am the oldest of my brothers, I am currently the only person who can legally work besides my mother to support my family and their needs.
After going multiple times to banks and other entities, no one has wanted to help me and there has been no choice but to tell my story to the world to see if someone with a good heart is moved and shares a small part of their generosity to make life way more livable and comfortable for an elderly woman who needs a hand now in a time of emergency.
I hope this little piece of my reality would make you feel empathy and help would come from your heart.
