Then on September 1, 2018, my husband and I had been having some problems for quite a while so I decided it was time to go out separate ways! Our relationship was way to toxic, neither one of us was happy and hadn't been for quite some time and the kids were tired of listening and seeing us fight! Staying in this relationship was no fair to anyone of us! But then I also found out on the same day that I only have 6 months to a year to live! I asked my hospice nurse why they were saying this when all of my scans had been looking so good and the doctor seemed to be pleased, never let on that anything could be wrong or anything and I had just been in to see him just a couple days before! She said that he wanted to tell me at that appt but just could not make himself do it due to my daughter being with me! But she informed me that my chemo is going to quit working and there is nothing else after that that they could do for me.
So all in one day I became a single mom of 2 wonderful children, Brooklyn, who is almost 17 and Cutter who is 10! I am not working as I am on disability which is only $900! Everyone knows that $900 is no where near enough money to pay a $550 rent payment plus all of the utilities plus take care of my kids and eventually have to pay for a funeral as I also have no life insurance and obviously a 16 y/o and 10 y/o do not have the money to pay for a funeral either! Nor should they have to even worry about that!
And to top all that off, we only have 1 vehicle which is about to fall apart, and it is my daughter's so she has to have it to drive back and forth to school! But when it quits we will be afoot with no way to get another vehicle.
I know this was quite long to have to read and I am sorry about that and as I said before, I hate asking for help and feeling like a bigger! But at this time I am asking my friends and family to PLEASE help my children and I to not have to worry and stress about where we are going to get the money to pay this bill or whether or not we are going to have electric or water tomorrow so we can just live as normal a life as possible with what time I do have left with them! Thank you and please keep us in your thoughts and prayers!
