Tuition and Medical Bills
This is a picture of me and my family. It's just mum and myself. We're small, but we're strong :)
Last year I was fortunate enough to attend my first year at the New England Conservatory of Music. I am an opera major and very passionate about my career.
Last year was also when mum got sick. There were a lot of complications and extenuating circumstances that caused her to have to take a lot of time off work. The medical bills started piling up, and it took a lot out of our tiny family.
I miss my mum. I love my mum. She is my everything. I spent my summer taking care of her in the hopes that she would get better, and in part, she did. However, things are still in the works of improvement and money has continued to be an issue. I'm trying to get as much scholarship and grant money as possible, but I still desperately need to go to school here to pursue my own life goals.
Please, please help this cause. It's just us two and we need the charity of others now more than ever.
Update: Things aren't looking too good right now for me staying in school this year. There was an issue with one of my loans and it's looking like I may have to drop out of my sophomore year at NEC. Again, PLEASE help!
Thank you, and I wish you a colorful, fine day :)
Happy announcement! Things are looking up for mum and I! I am so lucky to say that I received my appeal for more scholarship and that I am now completely secure at school for the next year! Mum also has some good news: her health is skyrocketing and doctors have commented on the "miracle" of how well she is recovering!!!
Thank you for your generosity, outstanding support, and prayers and well wishes during this horrible last year. Things are finally looking up for the both of us, and I'm so appreciative for everything you all have done.
As of now, I am closing down this project because we have reached a point where we feel we can carry on without having to lean so much on our amazing friends and family.
Again, thank you all for everything you have done, and I could not imagine what our lives would be like without the kindness of those we have surrounded ourselves with. Thank you all so much for everything you have done!!!!!
