Family in Crisis

I'm Lucille Montague. I put off launching this fundraiser out of false pride. I hoped things would get better without help but that is no longer possible. After my husband died a few months ago this event left our finances at all time low. My daughter became very ill with a brain injury and MS and we have mounting medical bills. I was a caregiver for my husband during his long illness and had to quit my work as a therapist to devote my time to him and my daughter. He was the patriarch of the family and when he passed he left us bereft and at a loss.  I hope to fund a funeral and memorial for him. My son Erik's little daughter is the light in this family.
I have been diagnosed with lung illness and need treatment which I cannot afford. The co-payments have been far too high for ultrasound or MRI.
Our rent has increased considerably from $2500 a month to $3000 and we can no longer afford to stay here. We also need help with moving expenses and the barest of necessities like food. The landlord raised our rent $500 because she hopes to receive an even higher rent. To make matters worse she sent a termination of tenancy document in the mail.  Must move in 60 days and need 1st and last month's rent and moving expenses. It's overwhelming.

Most importantly I continue to be the caregiver for my daughter Jordana who is disabled from that brain injury and MS. She has been ill for 5 years. She is a very gifted singer, songwriter and has launched her debut album "SEE YOU ON MARS" hoping her CD will bring her some funds to pay her medical bills.
Here is a  link to Jordana's singing from her album. Also to purchase here is link toCD.

She needs funds to launch her 2nd album and market "See You On Mars".
I am an author and just published my first book called "MAFIA LULLABY" Here is a link to this book Lullaby This is a true story about the "Genovese Mafia family" in New York.  My uncle JimmyNapoli,  was the powerful Don at the time and was called"the Lion" by my mom.
I will need funds to market my book and to publish my 2nd book"Adventures of Angel MacGregor." It's the story about an angel who is learning how to be an angel but still enjoys a cigar and Irish whiskey! He is on a mission to protect children who get into trouble. I know there are "angels" out there who are willing to make our path less difficult.
My second book is about an Angel and how he helps children with their misadventures. of angel McGregor
With your help I know we can overcome all these adversities. Dear friends, we really need your help and prayers. Thank you for listening.
