My mother suffered from stroke last march, 2019. Me and my Sister are still in college, funded by a relative, as our mom is a widow for 7 years now and a housewife (only graduated up to highschool) couldnt get a job and can barely afford our daily needs. I had to stop school last march due to what happened to her and with the help of our relatives offering a bit of their money combined, we were able to pay the hospital and doctors bills.
But for months now, we've been struggling providing her maintenance medicine and Physical Therapy sessions, as they should be taken daily. My relative, who funds my sister's schooling can only do so much as she has her own family to take care of. We've been asking house to house to borrow a few bills just to get her medicines. But it's been hard to keep up and my heart aches so much that I can't do anything for my mother that sacrificed so much for us both. I couldn't find a proper job at the mean time but I am not losing hope. I just feel trapped right now that we sometimes have to skip her PT sessions because we couldn't afford it.
So I'm really really asking help from good-hearted people, even just a few bills will be a great help for my ill mother for her fast recovery. I lost my father because of stroke, and seeing it happen to my mom as well makes it so hard to deal with. I can upload the prescriptions she has later on once my sister comes back. I don't want to lose my mom, I am just a young pre-adult that is still trying to figure out the world. Once I continue schooling and get a proper job, I'll do whatever it takes to give everything to my mom.
My mom's family has diabetes, they live in a small house owned by the government but they were allowed to stay as they take care of the public basketball court. She has 7 siblings all with low wage jobs or none. Because of their poor condition, my mom couldn't afford going to college and went to Manila to find work instead as a Wielder. She later on became an OFW in Hong Kong until 1996 to marry my father.
My father's family are street vendors selling gardening tools as a living. With the money they earn, is only enough to feed a family with 9 children. Because of their financial instability, a relative offered to shoulder my sister and I's schooling but since they have too much on their hands as well, couldn't help much with mom's expenses.
