This is my mom; Donna.
Donna was diagnosed with CML (Chronic myeloid leukaemia) on May 19th, 2012 (6 days after Mothers Day ) CML is a type cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow.
*Photo shown is Donna, in the hospital, with her three children. A couple days after being diagnosed with CML- notice she’s still smiling!* :)
Ever since she was diagnosed with CML, the bills started piling up, even more so: Medical expenses, overdue bills, etc. Her medication for the leukaemia, alone, is about $6000. She is disabled, due to back problems, and recieves disability. However, it’s not very much.
I try and send her as much money as I can, every now and then to try and help, but it barely helps with how far behind she is on bills.
She was caught up for a brief while, until her landlord accessed her bank account and withdrew three months of rent without any notice. Causing her bank account to go completely under..
Currently her gas is shut off (which all the house heating runs on, except the stove) so she can’t take hot showers, do dishes, etc., without boiling pots of water. Luckily, while it was still cold out, a few people from her church got her a few space heaters to stay warm with..
On July 8th, her water was turned off. She did, however, write a bad check, and they turned it back on today. But it may not be very long until the check bounces, and it gets turned off again. My mother has never been one to misspend money. Any and all money she gets goes towards bills, and hardly any food.
I did start a donation campaign a few days ago. If you could donate, it would be amazing! Anything and everything helps!
Here’s the link to the campaign…
Any money that we might recieve from this campaign will go straight to her bills, and medicine, and hopefully relieve her stress. My mother has always done so much for me, and my sisters, I want to give back to her and show her how much I love her. She’s my bestfriend.
Thank you so much.
This is extremely important, please help!
