The Strange kids are asking for your help in raising money for their Mom to pay off some medical bills after the death of their Father.

In April of 2011 my father passed away, leaving my Mom to deal with all the remaining (medical) bills (his as well as hers), His life insurance was just enough to cover the funeral with none left over. Unfortunately not much (if any) was saved for retirement. On top of that, her car is on it's last legs (err, wheels) and she can't afford to buy another one.

I moved back in with my parents when my Dad was sick so that I could help out any way I can. Now I am paying my own bills as well as trying to support my Mom financially any way I can. I don't make a lot of money, so it's been very difficult to stay afloat (I currently work 2 jobs). My brother also contributes, but his car isn't much better and he as bills of his own.

I'm not sure what her medical bills amount to. She is diabetic. She is unable to get a job because it would take away what little benefits she is getting. She has been on the verge of losing her home (thankfully my brother and I have been able to keep that from happening, at least for now) due to having to pay the medical bills.

My donation goal is just a guess, but seems like a good starting point from what little I have been told by Mom about her bills. We're all finding it very difficult to catch up but we are trying our best. We just need a helping hand to get ahead so we can start to stay afloat.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
