My brother Tom moved in with our mother about 20 years ago after our father had a massive stroke and had to relocate to a skilled nursing facility. Tom was a sucessful flooring installer, so the financial help and moral support was a welcome relief to our mom.
The past five years have been especially difficult for our mom physically. The combination of several minor strokes and a few major surgeries rendered her wheel chair bound. Tom had to cut back his work load significantly due to her increasing needs.
The last couple years our mother was battling Dementia. This combined with her already pressing physical needs lead our brother to the difficult decision to leave his career and become a full time caregiver. Thankfully, he was able to draw a small salary from the state which helped to offset the increasing medical co-pays and overall living expenses.
Six weeks ago our mom had a debilitating stroke in her frontal cortex. She was unable to speak and quickly became very week due to her desire to stop eating and drinking. She gave up her fight on July 18th in the late afternoon. Through it all, our angle brother's love and dedication never faltered.
I am asking for your support to help our amazing brother get back on his feet. He is in desperate need of a reliable car and the funds to relocate (by the end of this month!! Yikes!!). I can not think of a more deserving man who simply needs a "hand up"!
THANK YOU...THANK YOU...THANK YOU for taking the time to read this and (hopefully) consider blessing our family with whatever amount you are able.
