Help Lindsay stay afloat post tragedy

My name is Lindsay Anthony. I’m a mom of two boys. Jude, who is 11, and Carter, who passed away January 16, 2020, was just 5 years, 8 months, and 3 days old.
Carter died in a house fire with both his grandparents in Foxtrap, just hours before “snowmageddon” hit Newfoundland. My life was forever changed that night.

Since losing my boy, I’ve been suffering from ptsd, depression, and anxiety. I’ve tried a number of times to return to my job, but it’s just not possible. And I’m not sure when it will be again.

I was given 15 weeks of sick leave from EI after the accident. Since then, I’ve had no income but my $221 child tax every month. Right now, I’m out nearly $100k in income. I’m drowning in debt and struggle every month just to keep a roof over mine and Jude’s head.

I’ve been incredibly lucky to have a community come together to assist me not only financially, but mentally and emotionally as well. That said, the financial support has been enough to just scrape by. We were gifted so many gift cards for Christmas to help us with groceries. We’re so thankful for that.

I honestly can’t see me returning to work in the near future, and the banks keep calling, and the services keep being cut.

I feel so defeated and I need help pulling myself out of this hole.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story
