Today started out as any normal day would. I got up, cleaned my apartment, made some lunch and then got to thinking, "I would love my mom's chili right now!" Picking up the phone, I wasn't expecting to hear what came next.

Right away I could tell something was wrong. Her voice was just off. I asked right away, "are you okay?" And she burst into tears and I have never been more scared in my life. I thought she was going to have a heart attack on the phone from the sounds she was making. She couldn't breathe and it was hard to make out what she said.

Back when my father passed on, we came into some money that was invested in education funds for me and some RRSPs for her. My father passed away in 2006. We obtained the money a few years later and only now is my mom finding out she needs to pay $35,000 in income taxes.

We don't know how or where this number came from but my mom simply cannot afford that. She is barely scraping by on her own as it is. She is a dedicated grandmother to four little girls, works full time and still makes time to go to the gym, so she's healthy and can see her grand kids grow up. However with this stress, this may not be a reality.

My entire life, my mom has done everything in her power to make me happy and I want to help her. I need to help her. She has high blood pressure, and is trying to retire. She shouldn't be setting up a payment plan with the CRA because her advisors messed up on money she came into years back.

I am scared for my mother's health right now. Please. Help her if you can!

My mother is famous in our family for recreating our grandmother's dishes. She has passed many of these recipes to me and I will share them with contributors. You will have a choice of which recipe. The photo is of a blueberry pie made from scratch by me using my grandmothers recipe (filling and crust).
