A Family Torn Apart

On July 4th of this year, our stepdad Brynne decided his life was no longer worth living. He took his life while my mom, my 13-year-old sister, and my 8-year-old brother, and I were in the house at 9:30am. I am putting this page together because currently we live in whitefish bay, which was easy to do with two parents worth of income. But my mom unfortunately cannot afford it. I am doing everything I can to help but on July 24th I leave for basic training in the Army so I can't do much while preparing for that. Our landlord told us we had 10 days to get all of our things out of the house. So, since there is no way we can afford the home in whitefish bay, and with funeral expenses I'm worried about my mom, Theresa Michalik. She just simply does not have enough for an apartment right now and lost her food share money because she has been working too much overtime to make ends meet. This page and your generous donations will be going towards a first payment on an apartment, groceries, school supplies, and a way of life for my family. We appreciate all that is given to us and all of your donations! Thank you so much.
