I don't need a Ferrari, a Porsche, or limousine
I just need a moms taxi for when doctors need be seen
I have a beautiful boy who is in hostel away,
I just want to be able to see him, even just for the day
I am blessed with Multiple sclerosis, and What??? you might be asking?
But it's brought me beautiful people, friendships everlasting.
It's taught me to treasure and love the little things,
Little things like hugs, and walking and a heart that sings.
My son is my be all, my end all, my life
And at times it kills me to be the strife in his life,
He has had to grow up way before his time
All because mom had to get sick, that's got to be a crime.
I have fought 7 years to beat this little menace
Going back and forth like a game of tennis
Recently diagnosed my ms is much worse
This love hate relationship with my little curse
My sickness has seen us lose and give up a lot
And although I am grateful for all that I've got,
I would really appreciate a helping hand UP,
Not a hand out, not pity, I just want to stand up
I want to fight my disease and keep it at bay
For ages, forever, not just today,
My son needs his mom, and his mom needs him
I just need a little help and I'm going out on a limb...
After losing our car to appease financial needs
I have no vehicle now for even basic needs
I don't need a Ferrari, a Porsche or limousine
I just need a safe and reliable moms taxi, so my doctors can be seen...
So my son can come home at the drop of a hat,
Without having to borrow cars to achieve even that,
I want to be able to hop in the car when my ms gets bad,
I want to be able to go down and fetch my precious lad.
I don't want to seem selfish in wanting a Car,
But my hospital is out of town, and my son is so far
I just want to know I have a safe and reliable set of wheels
To get to my son, to the doctor who heals!
Your help big or small will be so appreciated,
In my battle with ms, and all the fallout it's created.
I wouldn't give up my ms if given the option. It has brought the most amazing people and blessings into my life. It has taught me that I am stronger than I ever could have imagined, but the past 7 years have also caused so much pain and sadness, and turmoil in my little boys life. He had to grow up way too soon. And has viewed pain and suffering that no child should watch their mommy go through. My son is now 14, and at boarding school, and how amazing the transformation when surrounded by amazing people, his family of brothers at hostel. I've seen my son smile more in these past 6mths than in the last 6 years. So incredibly blessed that his amazing sporting talent opened the door to his beautiful school and hostel. My heart overflows at the sight of him smiling and laughing from pure joy.
We had to sell our car to keep our heads above water financially and medically. And although it was the right decision at the time, losing our car has had a huge impact on my health in not being able to get to hospital and my specialists who are not in the same town. And my poor parents, bless their souls, cannot keep putting their needs last when I need a car to go to hospital, or even just to see my son.
Please, I am not asking for a million bucks, I am not asking for a Ferrari or a Porsche.....I just need help to secure a safe and reliable vehicle to be able to get to the doctor immediately, or to to get to my son immediately should something happen to him (heaven forbid!), or even just so he can be fetched to come home For the weekend.
Any donations would be so greatly appreciated, and i will forever be indebted to you.
I don't want a hand out, I just need a hand up, so I can fight this battle in my feet again. Life likes to kick you when you on your knees, please help me rise back into my feet with a fighting chance.
Please help me be the mom my son deserves!
Thank you so very much for your time and your help. Thank you!
