For about 6 years my mother fought hard and my family has made so many sacrifices in order to make ends meet and keep my mom comfortable. Now, she’s resting peacefully, and we’re here to try to help ease the financial stress this loss is causing. Due to her age and the debilitating condition she was diagnosed with, she was unable to obtain life insurance, which makes this all more difficult. My parents have always been the ones to help another individual, whether it was a place to lay their head at night, a plate, a smoke, whatever someone needed, they’ve helped them. I’m hoping that people see this and are able to open their hearts and help my family. Thank you in advance.
