Matthew and I decided to set up a gofundme for our mom after our dad's passing to help my mom financially during her time of grief.
In July, my dad was diagnosed with cancer and we were quickly plunged into cancer treatments and doctors appointments. In January, we learned that after much pain and trial that none of the treatments had affected the cancer. On February 13, my dad lost his battle with cancer. My brother and I wanted to set this up for family and many loving friends to help my mom during this transition time.
My parents were married for 35 years and this new stage of my mom's life as a widow will be challenging. She is learning to live alone during a time of unimaginable loss. My dad was the great patriarch and lone provider for our family all of their marriage.
Moving forward there is a gaping hole left where my dad was, it will be tough for all of us learning to live without him, but most of all for my mom, who spent all of her adult life with my dad.
Please consider donating to help my mom during the time of her greatest grief and change. We want her to be able mourn without worrying about paying bills and making ends meet.
