The woman on the left is my mom, Beverly. She is 55 years old and is a kind and loving person and mother. Throughout the years she has been overwhelmingly supportive of me, my choices in life, and in my education. When my father ran off, she quickly became both a mother and a father to me to this day. I am making this fundraiser because my mom has Type 2 diabetes, and as of these past few years her heath has been deteriorating. She has fallen under hard times and has yet to be able to afford heath care and hence, her medication. She currently lives in an apartment that, do to a change of hands, has become too expensive for her. I moved in with her to help her out financially, however I unfortunately was laid off of my job about a year and a half ago. I was in and out of seasonal and temp jobs for a bit until I got the job I have now. Unfortunately it’s only part time. Which is, yes, better than being unemployed, but still does NOT pay well. To top it off, she was forced to take a pay cut herself, do to cutbacks. I have done everything I can, even things with men I am not proud of, to bring in more money. But I am still unable to make enough to get her medication or make a dent in the bills. She can no longer walk long distances, clime stairs, her legs have become discolored, and we are behind on the rent. It makes it makes me sick daily to know that my decisions in my education maybe killing my mother. If I could win the lottery today I would give her every penny of it, if it would help her live longer so she could experience being a grand mother. But as it sands now, I am not sure. She is and has been nothing but supportive and loving to me, and I don't know how I would be able to live with myself if I lost her knowing that it’s my fault. She raised me to be a self-sufficient woman, but I do not know what ells to do. I want to get her some insulin, or even a doctors visit. I also want to get her moved into a cheaper place somewhere. That is why I am asking, begging, people like you out there to find it in your hearts to please help me help her. I thank you from the bottom of my heart, and will pry everyday that God blesses you.
