Both of my parents, Maitecha and Pierre Adrian Jauretche are cancer paitents. My Mother was diagnosed with breast cancer 13 years ago and is currently on hospice in the final stages of letting go of this world and stepping into the next. My Father was diagnosed with colon cancer a few weeks ago and underwent a colostomy. He was doing most of the care for my Mom, but his recent trouble has made him unable to do so.
I have stepped in to care for both, caring for my Mom both physically, spiritually, and emotionally while also organizing thier affairs. I had to quit my job as a coffee roaster to do so, and currently have no income. My parents had made a deal with me to take care of my bills while I am unable to work, but neither is currently able to follow through.
I am a Zen Buddhist student at Rinzai-ji Zen Center in Los Angeles and also attending classes at the Mindful Awareness Research Center through the School of Neuroscience at UCLA. I hope to work with the terminally ill in the future, and am just super super grateful to have a clean table to help my Parents right now. However I have personal bills to take care of that I am falling behind on. I have to keep my place in LA, student loans, health insurance, and therapy appointments. This 2000 dollars would keep me afloat for one month and give me a chance to figure out a more long term sustainable financial plan for my future. Please if you have anything to spare, or if you have a rich uncle, I would be so grateful!
