My name is Keilah and I'm a single mother to a 10 year old little boy named Cohen. He's my only child and was diagnosed with Burkitts Lymphoma Cancer on Mother's Day last year.
Most of Cohen's treatment(s) have been covered and we were managing okay until Covid hit. I am really struggling to write this and ask for help. I've never been one to "take a hand out". Not because of pride but because I've always tried to be an example to my son with my work ethic. On the other hand I can not NOT ask. I have to try every possible avenue for him... so here I am, conflicted and humbled.
How we got here??? Even with most of his treatments being covered we fell really behind on everything because of the time I've had to take off work for those treatments. I still have my job but we've fallen to far behind to caught up before the axe falls. I've tried and exhausted all other options. Federal and state help but on paper I make to much to qualify. Our church, friends and family have helped as much as they can and I actually owe them quite a bit. We are really scared.
Our needs total $15,000 between past bills, current needs (medications, food, clothing, ect) and paying back those who have lent us money to survive. I'm trying to stay strong for my boy despite feeling the weight of a mountain. If there is anyone out there who can bless us in any amount...we thank you with all our hearts. Words could never suffice
