My name is Aditi and I am 15 years old. I and my 3 year old brother need your help.
We recently have been told devastating news that my mom has been diagnosed at a very young age with cancer. This news has brought many changes in my family and effected all of us in a negative way.
Our mom has been through a lot for a very long time and I would like to do whatever I can to help. From an abusive last marriage for 8 years that ended in 2011, to being a single mother in college, to now having cancer she has seen all the down sides.
I am writing this to all of you, in order to help my mom and give her some kind of support. I overheard my mom and my dad talking that there will be lot of expenses from our pocket to support us and her medical expense, which is also concerning her mentally. Sometimes she cries and I feel very helpless as I cannot do anything than to just sit next to her, even at times when she wants to give up she doesn't, only for her the sake of her children.
We are from Dallas TX but due to this we had to relocate to Boston MA for her treatment. Moving to a new place as a high schooler and for my brother as a toddler has been very hard, but my mom would do anything for her kids and now it’s our turn to help her. I know that at times we look for help with our immediate family and friends but we can use all the help we get.
We are currently not posting this information on our own social media websites for we would not like our family and friends to know(especially back home in India) as they will get worried. I am asking as a sweet 16 present for help for my mom from you. You can call my dad on his number. I have told my dad that i am doing this for my mom.
Please share with as many friends and families as you can and I will always be thankful.
