Victim of Suicide School Loan

On August 10th, 2012 my family received the devastating news of my brother's passing from suicide. Kevin struggled with depression for much of his life after growing up with our abusive alcoholic father and then spending a good 8 years with the emotionally abusive grandmother. While my small part of the family, my mother Chris, myself and Kevin managed to get out more hardships came.

Kevin suffered through poor friendships, terrible love interests (though a few were angels) and losses from suicide of his own. He tried his best to make his way which included going to computer tech school.

His passion was video games, design and coding. He did well before his addiction to drugs crippled him and his depression crushed his confidence and motivation. My mother Cosigned this loan, to help him along but the schooling was never completed and the loan became a heavy burden on his shoulders as well as the feeling of disappointed.

Then 2012 came and many more pains came with them. He feared coming home though we begged him to and his long term relationship floundered due to her callousness and flippant cruelty. He was heart broken and his depression spiraled.

At 2:00 am in August I received the phone call that destroyed our hearts.

In the aftermath we took in his financial pains as the people left behind. His bill had grown from being unable to pay and when we begged for help from the company (S*llie Mae) they offered no help. I took on half the bill and my mother the other but we both have our own financial responsibilities and for my part I have begun living less than paycheck to paycheck.

We ask for any help at all to get this bill taken care of so my family can move on at least financially so that we might be able to contribute to the charities that sit so close to our hearts now.

As a victim of the same abuse and heartbreak I can understand and accept his choices. We are glad for his peace and now search for our own. Please consider donating!
