My name is Lily and I'm trying to raise enough money to pay off my disabled mom and disabled grandma's mortgage. I can't do it alone, I need your help.

Hello,

My name is Lily and I live with my mother, Bast, and my grandmother Roberta, both of whom are disabled. I work from home as a transcriptionist and help my mother and grandmother in their every day life.

My mother, Bast, is living with lupus, and all the complications that come with it; arthritis/chronic pain, immune deficiency, diabetes, and many other problems. As of now because of her poor teeth she has to get them removed and cannot eat solid foods. She works from home using Amazon Turk and helps to take care of her mother, my grandmother. She is a long time fan of many fandoms, contributing to fandom with zines of her own making for many years, and proud to be part of the fannish community.

 

My grandmother, Roberta, has her own disabilities. She is living with COPD, arthritis/chronic pain, immune deficiency, glaucoma, limited mobility, and many other problems. She is retired and getting some social security benefits but it isn't enough to live off of after food and bills.

After my grandfather, Mike, a retired US Navy vet and proud Native American, passed away from health complications in 2010 we lost a major source of income with his social security benefits.

 

Every year the mortgage bill seems to get more and more expensive and with my mother and grandmother's failing health it's getting harder and harder to pay it every month. It is nearly $700 monthly and we are just barely able to pay it every month, almost coming close to missing the payment and potentially losing our home.

To help pay for the cost of living here we have had to make very serious financial cut backs. We shop for food less, get lower quality meals. We have had to go without central air and heat, making do with a few small heaters and window AC units. We don't leave the house for recreational activities like movies, museums, etc because it's just too expensive. Our recreation expense is mainly the internet and cable. 

My mother and I are doing the best we can to make ends meet, putting all of our money into going to the house payment. It's due to the generosity of friends and family helping us when they can that has gotten us this far. However, the stress of trying to keep up with the growing house payment is affecting the entire household's quality of life.

If we lose our home we will have no where to go and with my grandmother's worsening health it could be disastrous.

That's why I'm hoping to raise the funds to pay the mortgage off entirely so that my family no longer has to worry.

But I can't do it alone. I need your help. If you can't donate please share this page. 

 

Thank you so much.

- Lily
