My mom had a stroke.

26397628_15138203410_r.jpeg23 November 2017 Thanksgiving day my mom suffered a stroke. Hello my name is Giovanni. I am the eldest son of 3. On this day I was attending a military school Ranger school in Fort Benning, Georgia. I was pulled aside by an instructor and was told I had received a Red Cross that my mom suffered a stroke. After not being able to go home and see my mom due to the military and flight closures in Atlanta, Georgia I was finally able to get home and finally see my mom on December 10th, 2017.
I walked into the room with my uniform because I know that cheers my mom up just to see her pretty much paralyzed. Unable to talk, unable to move and just standing there in disbelief. As I sit here at the hospital day after day and watching the amount of care my mother would need is insane. My father trying to keep everything together. Trying to tend to my mom, work 2 jobs to include overtime, trying to await the pending bills that will hit our family in the next couple weeks is now putting a stain on my dad. To know we might loose our home unless some miracle happens. Bills to reach into the thounds of dollars. I write this to ask anyone for help. Money yes but anything will help. Advice on how we can approach this, medical personnel that might be able to help with home care or facilities that will help with cheaper rates.  Anything will help and I understand that it's the holiday season but if you do read this at least share it for me I want this to reach as far as I can to help my dad out with this hardship.

Again I my self am in the Army and as an infantryman I am always training. My brother John is in the Navy he is a electrical engineer on a ship which needs his constant watch, as well as a baby on the way. Our youngest brother Richard just turned 18 and is currently going to college to soon join  the Airforce.
