Newman's and Laney's Fight

As most of you are aware my parents (Charles & Elaine) adopted their newborn grandson 3 years ago.  He was so premature and has special needs  my mother had to stop working to care for him.  He has to go to special therapy and a  school to give him the special support that he needs .  He has therapy 2 hours a day and he has to go to the school  4 hours a day to help him get to the place he needs to be to socializing him with other children.  Not  to mention the numerous doctor appointments he has to go to.   My mother had to stop working to take care of him and his needs full time.    She turned in her car and erased all her debts to try to eliminate  as much of the overhead bills as possible to help out the situation of not having her extra income in the household anymore.    My dad took on more side jobs to help cover all the extra medical bills, therapy, and to help cover the regular day to day house bills.

Last week my dad suffered a hemorrhagic stroke.  That is caused by extremely high blood pressure that causes an artery to rupture in the brain and bleed out into the brain.  He had spent numerous days in ICU and is now back at home and trying to recover.  Because of the stroke he will no longer be able to work like he was.  There is no telling when he will be going back to work.  As most of you know my dad this is very difficult for him to just sit and not work and bring money in to support his family.   We are not wanting him to stress anymore to make his health problems worse then what had already happened.

Now my parents are scrambling to try to sell their home so they can get enough money to cover what they can't anymore.  They are hoping  to get enough from the sale of there home to be able to cover the bills for a little while.  This is not an easy thing for them to do.  They both worked hard on getting this house and fixing it up to be a forever home for our family.    But as most of you know my mom and dad they will do whatever it takes for there family while they put there needs and wants aside.

It make take several months to sell there home they need money now to try to find a place to rent so they can put the house on the market.  They don't have a place nor the money to do it.  In less then a month the money they do have will be gone.  Everything is starting to hit them all at once.  Most of you are either friends with my parents or have  worked around them.  You know they would always give anyone there shirt of there own back to help someone.  This is not an easy thing for either of them to go thru.

I put the goal at $5000 because that will help to get them through the next couple months and will hopefully help find a place for them and Chandler to live. 

They have been together for 15 years and have been thru a lot unfortunately this is another bump in the road that they are having to overcome.  37796500_1552865775507009_r.jpeg37796500_1552865800589453_r.jpeg37796500_1552865869475927_r.jpeg37796500_1552865887315619_r.jpeg37796500_1552865922647317_r.jpegPlease help me raise money to help my parents and take away some of the stress that they are under.
