Save my home

I've done the best I could... I did what I thought was right.  I spent most of this century caring for my mother who suffered from Alzheimer's and  cancer.  Her Hospice nurse said in 35 years experience she had never seen a family caregiver do so much as I did for my mother, but how could I do less?  Her death, a few years ago, still weighs on me every day, I still feel I didn't do enough.

I tried to settle her estate fairly with my brother, who lived far away and contributed almost nothing to her care or comfort in her final years.  However, he was not satisfied and decided to go to court.  He lost, he still refused to cooperate and then HE died.

In the interim the stress took its toll on ME and I had to have coronary bypass surgery.

I'm still not fully recovered but now I'm at odds with my brother's heirs and they are attempting to not quite swindle me but they are taking advantage of the fact that I am in debt as a result of the expenses of caring for my mother and trying to settle her affairs and then having major surgery.

  After the surgery I was unable to keep up with the bills and needed to take out a small loan, assuming I would be able to  get the estate settled and pay it back relatively quickly.

  All the legal problems caused by my brother and now his heirs have made the bank impatient and they are planning to sell my half of the house on the courthouse steps on Tuesday, Oct. 9th to settle the debt.

  My brother's heirs are taking advantage of this situation and instead of paying me back for half of the expenses, which I am due, so I could prevent the bank from taking the house, they are refusing to cooperate and will probably use the foreclosure sale to take my half of the house for themselves since they have the income from my brother's estate at their disposal and will likely bid at the auction and take my half of my mother's estate for a fraction of its value and then sell it themselves.

  Were it not for my direct actions of caring for my mother in her home and helping my brother make HIS house payments several times there would have been no estate from either my mother or brother and this is the thanks I get.

  So, to prevent this foreclosure which  would leave me homeless AND penniless I am forced to ask the world for help.

  I have been trying to negotiate a settlement for weeks but to no avail.  I need to give the bank $11,800 on Tuesday morning to clear the loan.  I know it is an almost impossible request but I'm  left with no other options.

  If you could find it in your hearts to help prevent this harshest of injustices and help me get out from between this "rock and a hard place" I would be eternally in YOUR debt.
