Struggling

Where to begin.

In December of 2014 my grandfather had a major stroke that left him with late stage Alzheimer's and in need of constant care. So my mother quit her job to be his full time caregiver. It was a struggle every single day. He turned violent at the end, but she gave him the best care she could.

When he passed away in February of 2016, we were left with only my minimum wage income while my mom searched for a job after being out of work for over a year. We were struggling then. My mom finally found a job,

When we finally thought we weren't going to be drowning anymore my mother had a stroke September 29th, 2016.

While not nearly as severe as my grandfathers. She has to re learn how to walk on her own and use her right hand again. She's going to an acute rehabilitation center, and I am uncertain how long she'll be there for, so again. I'm left with already behind bills on my part time minimum wage job, and I'm drowning.

Anything anyone could do would be such a huge help.

Thank you so much
