My grandmother fought for years to try and save her son from the mental pain and depression he experienced since he was child. He was diagnosed with tourettes and other mental health issues at a young age, as with many youth, he tried to help himself through his pain by self-medicating instead of relying and trusting on the help of others. Self-medicating turned to a stronger addiction and his battles were many, including stigma from those who have never been touched by the disease of mental illness and addiction. Now, my grandparents have to bury their son and because of the restrictions of medicaid and their limited income as seniors, it is difficult to give him a proper funeral.
On behalf of my family I am asking in lui of flowers that perhaps you can help with the cost of his funeral.
