PLEASE HELP! This fund will go towards the outstanding mortgage fee or if the goal is not met, moving fees and a new place to live.

Today I received some horrible news from my dad. He informed me that he and my mom have less than a month to pay an outstanding fee on their mortgage or else the bank will have no choice but to foreclose. If they don't pay the full amount by mid-August they will be evicted on September 11. I knew my parents had been having financial problems over the years but never thought they would come so close to possibly losing their home! It's so scary to think about! This is my parents’ home and the home where I spent most of my childhood. Several years ago my father had to undergo emergency surgery on his spine. This meant him being out of work for a very long amount of time. He owns a small business so not being able to work caused a great decrease on my family's income. Ultimately the decline in business resulted in him closing his office and running his company from home. I knew growing up that my parents had struggled with money but they still made sure that we had what we needed. It was very tough making ends meet, but I know they tried very hard to make the best of what we did have for me and my brothers. Currently my dad still has his ups and downs with his business and has struggled trying to find other lines of work due to health issues. My mom has also found a job. She is working as many hours as she possibly can to try and get caught up on their bills. Their income has been very inconsistent and has caused them to get VERY behind on bills. My younger brother is still at home and not yet old enough to work. I love my family very much and I know that they would do anything to help me! There have been plenty of times when my parents helped me financially even though they needed it more than I did. I wish that I could return the favor and give them the money they need! But unfortunately I cannot and that is why I am asking you to PLEASE help! Please save my family's home! Even if you can't give much, even $1 will help! Please take the time to forward this fundraiser to others! My family would be so VERY THANKFUL!!!
