Death of my father

22940860_1502497105.5166_funddescriptionThe recent death of my father on July 30, 2017, (due to brain/skin cancer) has left my family in an utter case of financial limbo. My mother, who is disabled and in a wheelchair, has depended on my amazing father not only emotionally and physically for the past 27 years but also financially. Due to her disability, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, as well as being a little person, she is unable to work. I, her daughter (with a young family of my own), am trying to do whatever is necessary to help my mom. I am very limited. We recently have been hit with many big financial strains, one being my father's funeral costs; two, former and future medical bills for his treatment; and three, my mother's medical needs. Truly anything will help my family in this time of need, even kind words! Thank you so much for everyone who has taken the time to read my story.
