Never Stop Looking Up

Although our story is very personal, I know it's never easy to go through something alone. Over the past several years, my mom has experienced unexpected financial burdens including a great deal of medical and residential treatment costs. Many are unaware, but my sister has been dealing with depression and mental illnesses for quite some time. It's real, it's a work in progress, and it isn't easy to talk about.

My mom is humble and is always the hardest worker in the room. No matter what comes her way, she never stops looking up. Though at this moment in time, when she doesn't think it could get any worse, tougher situations find their way in.
It's impossible to explain all the events we've suffered through, as it's on a much more personal level, but my sister's mental state is severe.
Because of this, life is throwing some hardcore curveballs - most recently my mom's car was totaled in a car accident. With this fundraiser, I want my mom to feel the power of love & support and know that better days lie ahead. 

I'm aiming to have this up for about 2 weeks. My mom is unaware and the money raised will be given to her in an effort to help buy a new car and to help pay off medical bills. 

We are more than our struggles and we shouldn't be defined by them. We all go through our own battles in life, but we rise by lifting others. Any donation made is sincerely appreciated.
