Help My Mom Get Back on Her Feet

On August 18th-- in the early morning hours of her birthday-- my mother Theresa Agnew had a mild stroke. The doctors told us that she would never be the woman that she once was.   We almost lost her.   If not for the quick response by her church and doctor she would not be here with us.   We witnessed a miracle and are overjoyed that she will be making a full recovery.

She is a loving, religious, caring woman who deserves to live a better life -- one without loneliness and around people that lover her.  And the ocean. ;-)

In order to help her recovery my mother needs to move down to Florida from Chicago to be closer to me and a support group dedicated to her living a full life.  She needs to buy out her lease, pack her things, close loose ends, and move down in the next 30 days.  There are bills, bills, bills and we need help covering them.

Having my mother alive, safe and well would mean the world to me and to us.   Every dollar will go toward her making the path toward a full recovery and fuller life with her sons in Florida.

I wouldn't ask this of our community if I didn't need it.  

Thank you!
