My need and situation
I am a 52-year-old widow and mother. I became disabled ten years ago. When I was a passenger in a car that ran a red light, the car hit a pole and I was air lifted from Evergreen and Chicago. I had to undergo ten surgeries, as a result of the impact from the air bag I had a blood clot in my heart that had to be removed. I receive long term disability and live of a fixed income.
My plans consist of taking care of my mother who has dementia, helping my sister get better after a stroke, and trying to keep my family close after my daughter was raped. To make sure that my children and grandchildren are safe as can be.
I need help with car repairs.The man who raped my daughter will be released at the end of the year. My daughter has seizures, and is still in therapy. I have physical therapy. I would like to be able to pick my daughter up from school each day, I physically cannot.
Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to ensure my child is safe. I will also be able to help my mother and sister with medical appointments. No amount will go unappreciated as it will be life changing for my situation.
Thank you for helping Noel fund this need.
