Help with mom's funeral

Hello, I'm Alex and my brother Andrew. Recently our mother passed away on Sunday August 31, she was 49 years old. She passed away to complications due to cervical cancer after fighting for just under two years.

We weren't expecting this to happen so suddenly, we were all in high hopes and feeling positive that the treatment was working. It went downhill so fast on Sunday, and it's still so hard to believe she's gone.

She was the most loving and accepting mom we could ask for, and the strongest person we would ever know. She even went out of her way to help many of our friends and family in their lives, and they loved and admired her greatly. She left behind her two sons, and a wonderful husband.

Our dad Phil is taking this extremely hard as he loved her immensely and now is left with the responsibility of the bills and house payments, which is extremely rough without our mother's income. We are struggling with our finances and trying to figure out how to pay for the funeral, and keep our house. 

The most heartbreaking thing about all this is that she passed away on her 18th wedding anniversary. It was absolutely devastating when my father uttered, "the best day of my life is now the worst day of my life."

We appreciate any amount you can give, no matter how small the donation. Please be sure to get check ups with your doctor and stay safe, it's hard not to think about how different things would have been if they had detected the cancer earlier.

Thank you. With love, Alex, Andrew and our dad, Phil.
