Raising Money to Raise Mom's Hopes

For those of you who don't know, my mom is an absolutely amazing woman. She has raised my brother and I mostly on her own for the last 18 years. She has provided everything that my brother and I could possibly need in this world, sometimes carrying up to three jobs at a time. Emotionally and physically, she is the strongest person I have ever known. 

Her kids have always been her top priority, putting her needs on the backburner. Unfortunately, working so hard physically comes with a price. My mom does not walk with ease, she struggles to even get from the car to the house. It breaks my heart to see her in so much pain. 

The doctor's have put her at the top of the list for an immediate double knee replacement, double leg straightening procedure (all to be done in one surgery). She will have to be off her feet for 8 weeks, which means no work. I know she is struggling with the decision of putting herself first and I want to do everything I can to make her more confident in getting the surgery done.

I, myself, am a full time student at California State University, San Marcos; a year away from getting my degree. I struggle with the thought of not being able to take care of my mom the way she does for us.


Any donations will go towards helping my small, little family financially, keeping a roof over our head and food in our belly's. I know that I see my mom as Superwoman, but I realize she can't do it all. Any little bit helps and my mom, brother and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
