I don't really know how to start this story. All I know last year, we were still a complete family. Until we found out that my Dad has stomach cancer. Our family went thru so many financial hardships. We were able to get help for his operation but we didn't know that my mom silently suffered in silence because of fear of losing my dad. My mom, due to her depression, got terribly sick and eventually she died last March 3 leaving my sisters and our Dad.
I know it will be very difficult for my Dad because he has stage 4 cancer and he needed mom. I was the only one working for our family and had to provide all his medical needs but still my efforts are not enough. We accumulated debts from a lot of people and from hospitals just to provide for his medical needs. But 3 months after, he too passed away last June 8. It was a tragic moment for our family to lose mom and dad in the same year. But the worst is yet to come.
Just almost 2 months from our father's death, our eldest sibling got terribly sick. We urged her to seek medical help. She was finally admitted in the hospital and the medical team said she is not doing well. She was admitted in the ICU and had complications like enlargement of her heart and kidney failure. Just 3 days after, she also passed away leaving 3 small kids with her youngest whose only 1 year old.
I now have to take the biggest role in the family as I am left with my two younger siblings. We were left with huge debts due to my father's illness and I want to setup this gofund me to somehow help our family start all over again. I want to use the money to pay off my dad's hospital bills and the remaining funeral bills for him, mom and my older sibling. I also want to use this money to help my siblings's kids since they were too young and they need financial help.
I thank you so much if you somehow read my story and help me in this difficult time. I pray that no family has to go thru the same amount of grief and pain we had gone through. I still believe there is hope beyond the unforseen deaths of my loved ones. Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
