Please read my moms story and share to see if she can get the help she needs.
My mom was diagnosed in 2010 with stage 4 terminal breast cancer. She has always kept a positive outlook even through the hardest dark days we have faced over the last few years. She now has cancer in her eye and has lost her vision in it and just last week was told she has a paralysed vocal cord, which broke her heart as if anyone knows my mom she is a none stop chatterbox. Its in her bones, lungs, liver and all over her body. Still she soldiers on. My mom is someone who will never ask for help off anyone and would rather try and do it herself. After nearly 2 gruelling years on weekly chemotherapy my mom is in pain most days and small tasks such as taking care of her house have become hard. She still tries to do it all herself and even tried to lift a sofa the other day forgetting her fragility which ended up in torn ligaments in her shoulder due to her weakened bones and muscles. My mom had to give up her job as a carer and cleaner a few months after she became ill and she has struggled to create the home she has always needed due to her income only covering the cost of living. Myself my sisters and my brother all wish we could help my mom more and we do the best we can but if anyone can help towards repair costs so that we can give my mom a comfortable home to live in which is warm and functional it would mean the world to us all. She currently has windows which are over 60 years old from when the house was first built which she cannot afford to replace and a kitchen which is literally falling off the walls. To try and keep herself warm she uses an electric heater, in her condition she needs to be warm at the very least. I visited her last week and my bones felt like ice just sitting in her living room due to the draft that comes through her front door/windows. I wish there was more I could do to help but financially its not possible for these type of repairs. She also has a tree in her garden which is so tall its going to blow over and she has the neighbours knocking at her door frequently complaining about it, but was quoted over £1000 to have it taken down. All of this stuff is causing her stress and its horrible to see. Any help would literally mean the world to us all to make her more happy and comfortable.
