I have decided to set up this Campaign because it kills me everyday feeling so helpless when it comes to seeing my sick sister doing her best to raise her four children by herself, while she remains to fight for her own life. My sister had a 4.0 GPA getting her bachelors in nursing before all of this and now she scores in the 1% for short and long term memory, along with many many other deficits and medical issues. She is unable to work and continues to get denied over and over again for disability, when I myself have sat in many rooms with teams of Doctors who say she is definitely over qualified!
The new school year is approaching and providing her children with the necessities is just another added stress on top of her many other worries as bills continue to stack up.
As her family, we do our best to help, but I was hoping by starting this campain I could take a little of the worry off of her, as any stress is debilitating to someone as sick as my sister.
We have done fundraising in the past to help pay out of pocket for her 1st brain surgery to remove a pineal brain tumor (exactly in the middle of her brain), which is when her nightmare worsened. 8 months later she had to be flown across the United States yet again for an emergency surgery for a brain infection and urgent hardware removal. My sister puts on a brave face every day for her children all the while struggling so hard as she continues to fight daily from brain deficit's, related diseases, and new diagnoses as well.
I hesitated to ask for help again and I especially didn't want her to feel the embarrassment of needing continued help, but when it comes to a mother taking care of her children, I feel that it is a necessity and that pride means nothing. We have to help somehow!
Please help me to help her in anyway possible.. Literally anything helps and we would be utterly and forever grateful. Thank you so much for helping her continue to fight!!
