Lively family in need of emergency help

39059132_1557259678370124_r.jpegMy family is in emergency need of help. My Mom Denise Lively lost consciousness suddenly on May 2nd. She was found not breathing and with no pulse. She has been in Critical care ever since then and her outcome is not looking good. It is looking like she now has bad brain damage from the lack of oxygen, has not been responsive since that day and is on life support. Her outcome is not looking good. 

My mom took care of the whole family. She was the foundation of the Lively family and the glue that kept them together. She did everything for my father and was taking care of a large family. My father, my uncle, my brother and 4 grandkids were all being supported and assisted by this strong woman in some way. She was so supportive though, that she did EVERYTHING for them. She was in charge of the finances and did not let anyone help her or have access to them and now that  I have seen them, things are not looking good. 

My dad had took some time away from work recently to help take care of my mom. She just had her bladder removed in a major operation because it had calcified. During that time, their income took a huge hit. My dads health is declining rapidly too and he now has to retire due to his diabetes, poor eyesight and arthritis in his lower spine. He had forced himself to return shorty to work due to the family financial needs after my moms operation but then this sudden disaster happened. He has now on leave from work to be at the hospital daily and most likely won’t be able to return. He is barely making it through this hardship as well. He is scared about his future and the thought of losing his wife of 43 years, his best and closest friend and how she may now possibly reached her time to leave. 

As we prepare ourselves for what is gonna happen to our mom, we found out more bad news about my parents finances. 

My mom was hiding a financial burden from the whole family. She was in great debt with very little money in the bank. Behind on countless bills, took loans out without us knowing, behind on rent and gas bills. Medical bills and more. She was doing everything she could to keep the family going but was making bad choices.  Bankruptcy is looking like a major possibility for my dad and the possibility  of much of the family becoming homeless is dangerously high if more income doesn’t come soon. 

As of right now my mother is on life support and may only have a few hours / days left.

Any type of income is coming to a quick stop soon and we are all scrambling to pay rent so they can have shelter as well as food.

We are seeking help with those basic needs right now to keep my family going and alive until everything can be figured out. This is a desperate cry for any type of help from anyone. Anything is appreciated more than anyone will ever know. 39059132_155725948151557_r.jpeg39059132_1557259592531370_r.jpeg39059132_1557259635773845_r.jpeg
