Hello,

My name is Lily and I live with my mother, Bast, who is disabled.  My grandmother, Bast's mom, recently passed away on May 27th, 2019 due to COPD related complications. We are still working on donations to pay off the mortgage, but now we need the donations more than ever. 

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 up until recently spent 90% of her daily life 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 fan community.

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. And now, with the death of my grandmother we've lost yet another source of income and will absolutely not be able to have a home here unless we can get some more donations.

The debt that we owe as a result from my grandfather's (and now my grandmother's) death prevents us from being able to sell this house at a profit, and we would get nothing in a foreclosure. Moving simply isn't an option. 

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.

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 wherever you can.

 

Thank you so much.

- Lily
