Tragedy after tragedy

I don’t even know where to start. The reason I’m raising money for my mom is because she’s been thru so much. She’s been thru the worst domestic abuse with my dad but divorced him after my brother Jose passed away. She lost her first daughter marisol when she gave birth to her. My mother was only a teenager at the moment. Then my oldest brother Johnny got a high fever at a young age that was hard to control it damaged part of his brain he now suffers from meningitis. Then years later she gave birth to my baby brother Jose Luis he died at 3 months old from SIDS. About 3 years later she finds out her son Jorge who at the moment is about 12 years old has lukemia cancer. After a few years Jorge finally beat cancer and got to go home the day before Halloween . Tragically the day of Halloween Jorge and my other older brother Jesus died in a car crash in Burbank Washington a semi struck their friends car. Danny their friend was the driver he lived but lost his two best friends. Now my mom only has me and my brother Johnny left. My mom is so hard working all her life she’s worked hard to keep a roof over our heads it’s not easy for a single mother. I want her to quit her job so she can enjoy the rest of her life spending it with us but mainly with my brother Johnny whenever she’s not around he has mood swings and is mad and depressed but when she’s home from work he’s the happiest person ever they both deserve to be happy. My goal is to raise enough money to pay off my moms mortgage I been trying to save money myself but it feels like it will take a life time since I’m a home owner myself with two kids. If I don’t raise the money at least I know I tried. God bless. And thank you for at least reading this and hearing me out.
