Hi, my name is Megan Ilowiecki-DeMarco and I'm making this page in the hopes to raise money for my parents dream home. By dream home I don't mean a beautiful and extravagant house but just a place where they can come home at the end of a hard day and just relax and be at peace. My parents have been together for twenty six years and in that span of time they haven't had a honeymoon or even one vacation. Currently my dad works at least six days a week and my mom has some continuing health problems which are currently adding to their list of bills each month. I know they are too proud to ask for help and always put others before themselves but it's time that they came first. I know that the only dream that they do have is to have a safe and worry free home where my little sister can grow and thrive. The house they currently have (my childhood home) has needed a new roof for as long as I can remember and even though my dad has tried to fix it he has only been able to do temporary fixes because of limited funds and limited free time. So of course the roof still leaks which has led to a deterioration in the structure and mold issues. Then with the flood in Schoharie County a few years ago it just made matters worse and my parents were told it would be better to move out immediately then live there but unfortunately my parents can't just pick up and move or they would have done so a long time ago so this has just added to the stress of the situation.
If I had the money to give I would demolish their old house and start fresh for them in a heartbeat. I would have the hard water treated, a new septic system put in, a foundation and house. But since I can't do this for them I ask for others to help them out and give them the safe haven that we all deserve at the end of the day.
