16 months ago I started this GFM to help Tammie get Noah's meds. And you all came through strong. Today I am reopening this campaign because Noah will be undergoing brain surgery and his mom needs help. She the sole bread winner and provides for all of her kids needs. She gets no help from the state, gets no child support, works her ass off every day and stays up nights watching over Noah as his seizures often happen overnight. She'll be out of work to take care of Noah. No vacation or sick pay when you're commission based. Lord, she is tired but she is strong. Oh Lord, she is scared but her faith in you is unwavering.
Please consider helping out once again.
12 years ago I was blessed with a very special little guy. Noah.
As many of you know Noah has been diagnosed with epilepsy since birth & has been through a whirlwind of battles. He has fought through having 125 seizures in a 24 hr period for weeks on end, brain surgery where they removed almost half of his brain, daily struggles with academics and behavioral issues and so much more. We were told that he had an 85% chance of being wheelchair-bound & needing an around-the-clock nurse to care for him. To the docs surprise & by God’s grace & mercy HE HAS BECOME MY STRENGTH & MY LITTLE FIGHTER. He has NEVER allowed his epilepsy hold him back. He is my little jokester & one of the most intelligent kids I have ever known. As a parent, I couldn’t be any prouder of him. He has come such a long way. Even through all his triumphs, I find myself in a scary place today. I feel lost and broken and I feel like I’ve failed.
I am a single mother and sole provider for my children. I do not ask for help. Not because I am too proud, but because I know others need it more. I have found that with a little extra hard work, I can cover almost any bill that comes my way. God has always provided for us. However now I find myself on my knees wondering how in the world I am going to afford Noah's medication. I don't make much money. Just enough to get by, pay my bills, and have a little left over.
I’m at a complete loss & have no clue how I am going to come up the $1500 deductable for his seizure meds this month. His meds are not cheap and they are REQUIRED. My heart is broken into a million little pieces that I just don’t have it & can’t give him what he NEEDS. He CANNOT go without his meds, that would just be life threatening for him.
Sure I could pay for his meds but what about all the other responsibilities as a mother: food? Electricity? Water? a roof over our heads? That’s all on me and ONLY me.
I’m overwhelmed & have been for quite some time now. I don’t want to play the single mom card cuz there are many single moms out there that do it every day. I am one of them but not getting child support or any kind of state assistance has really made this situation harder. IT ALL LAYS ON ME & FEEL LIKE I’M GOING TO BREAK. JUST NEED HELP
