Help Complete A New Home For My Mom Fund

Support a daughter in building her mother her dream home.

Three years ago, I was injured on the job.  Because of the pain I experienced and still experience everyday, I am no longer able to work.   I take medication for the pain daily.    As a result of that, I am living at home with my mother who     is taking care of me.  I have no income at the moment.        No disability or unemployment.

My mom has been there for me through every step of the way. I became tired of the daily non stop pain and had surgery.   The pain subsided for a shot time, ( it has since came back) and I was left with a weak right knee that causes me to now have limp when I walk.    She took time off from work when I had surgery, she helped nurse me back to health after the surgery and she drove to and from my doctor's office which is over 100 miles away from where we live and she drove me to and from physical therapy.



After a long battle with my former employer, I was finally compensated for the injury.  

The  house we live in was built by my dad over 30 years ago, and is now falling apart.  I used every penny given to me to build my mom a new home.  Unfortunately it wasn't enough,  the money was only enough to build the skeleton of the house and possible close it in.

I have been told it will take another 20k to completely finish it.  I just don't have it.  My mom is working very hard to come up with the extra money but I don't want her to kill herself to do so.

I know that is a lot of money to ask for.  If you are unable to give anything, I truly do understand.  Thank-you for taking the time to
read this.   I appreciate all the support you can give us. 


Edit: I lowered the amount as I am finding it very hard to raise any donations.

Thank-you
Jamillah

This will probably be my last update. I really don't see the point in continuing when I can't get any one other than those who have already donated, to donate. So many people in my life want me to do for them but when I need help, they run and hide. Thanks to those who did donate, I really appreciate it :)

We're doing the little things to make the roof more sturdier, we will probably have to do it ourselves.
Have a great day, everyone :)

We still need your help. We're trying hard to get a roof put on. An amount as little as $5 is greatly appreciated.
