Fundraiser for the Pursell Family

Update... My momma passed away today at 4:07pm. She opened her eyes for a minute then closed them and took one final breath and went peacefully!  

Now we have to figure out how to pay for her final arrangements. We are looking at a few thousand dollars and we are down to the deadline.  If you are able to donate you would be an angel to us all right now.  

My sister and cousin and Gary and myself came together to tell my baby sister and her heart is so broken as is ours but she has been with my momma everyday of her life of 30 years and a handful of those years was just the two of them so rightfully so her world just crumbled! We are so broken and exhausted and we desperately need any and all help possible! Thank you all. 
This page is in place to help raise funds for the Pursell family. Rob, Rachel and Crystal's mother, Lisa is currently fighting for her life after suffering 2 unexpected strokes. Lisa is a single mom with a special needs daughter, Crystal, who is very dependent on her. Lisa has lived bare-bones just to get by. She survived a life-threatening situation a few years ago. Now she finds herself fighting in ICU unit, in a medically induced coma, and has been unresponsive. She is on a breathing ventilator and fighting pneumonia along with a brain bleed. Her family is praying for a miracle.

Her son, Rob, left his job in Pennsylvania upon hearing the news to go care for his baby sister and his mom and try and maintain hope for his family. He has not had time to find employment in Florida, due to taking care of his sister and standing vigil by his Mom's bedside. He does hope to find a job once he is able to.

Crystal has many medical issues and needs her medication as well as co-pays for her medical needs. She may be 30 years old, but she has the mentality of a 7 year old. The medications she takes helps to control the 2 to 6 seizures she has daily. She has several doctor's visits a month.

While this family needs to concentrate on their mom and their prayers for her and maintaining their sisters well-being, they could use any help to alleviate the financial stress that is now on them. There's also the concern that should Lisa pass away, there is no money to have a proper burial service for her. There is no insurance policy, no home to sell as she rents, nothing. She has basically no estate.

Any gift will help tremendously and will be greatly appreciate it! Thank you so much for your care and prayers!

Update: On 10/18/17, Rob was notified his father was admitted to the hospital across the street from where his mom is located. He to, suffered a stroke, but appears to be responding well to treatment! This family could really use your help while they struggle with having both parents in the hospital! Thanks!
