Our Family needs help getting back on our Feet

Donation protected
Hello, this is not easy for us. On January 17 in the late night early friday morning my daughter Julya decided that taking her life was easier then living the pain of anxiety etc. At 2am she went into the kitchen and took a kitchen knife and proceeded to end her life. There were no signs other than what we perceived as normal teenage angst. She came to us when we woke up and told us she needed help and so we took her to the hospital to only have her admitted to inpatient mental facility. The hard work begins with Therapy along with meds.  We have private insurance but the copays are killing us. My husband is the sole worker in our family and is a trucker so he can only work so many hours per DOT regulations, I'm on disability. The medical Bill's for my daughters  suicide attempt were 2 grand plus and we cant even pay those Bill's. To afford her copays therapy and meds we had to make cuts then my oldest child's mental health  failed due to her sister and she resorted back to cutting on herself and suicidal thoughts and then another child needed help. I now have 3 children in mental health services including myself as I suffer from bipolar disorder and severe personality disorder ptsd and anxiety. My youngest has Tourrettes and a physical disorder caused at birth. The medical Bill's are literally crippling us this year. We are literally falling behind on every bill. Any amount will help. We are a family of 6.  My mother receives monthly infusions at our home to help stave off her rare disorder called Moersch-Woltmanns or Stiff Persons syndrome. To top the year off, In June, I then found out my father had passed away from cancer which then put us further behind as I had to rent a car  and a hotel for 2 days and gas to drive from Arizona to Tulare, CA to attend his Wake. With the backed up medical Bill's of 2500, and on-going treatment and medications for all 4 of us, funeral/wake expenses  we had  fallen behind in our APS Electric bill, mortgage and water. We live in Arizona with temps in.the triple digits, our AC units are 14yrs old and still using R22 freon, this summer our electric Bill's monthly have been 600 a month and we cant keep up. We have until October to pay the balance or they will shut us off.  Our water is at $200+ and our mortgage is $500 behind. We have tried every avenue locally to get help to no avail. My mom needs to have the electricity for the iv machines to work in the house, and for my husbands cpap machine. Please, if anyone can help us..we are hanging by a thread mentally and financially. We are only looking for a Hand up  otherwise are Bill's are paid monthly. Through no fault of our own, we had a bad run of luck this year. Help us to get on an even keel and start fresh. We thank you and appreciate your gift.
