It was a shock




October 22, 2021 my son’s father passed away very suddenly after having COVID. It was a shock and left me as his only parent. Our son is 11 years old now. He has endured some bullying at school for not having a dad.

Shortly after Brian died a family friend sent us to a cabin where we relaxed for a few days and he has been asking to go back. It’s just not been in the budget. A couple days away would be a great experience for my son and I.

I lost my daughter and my kids lost their little sister




On May 4th of 2022 our sweet Viola Jane was born sleeping at 24 weeks and 3 days. I lost my daughter and my kids lost their little sister. My sister-in-law and best friend lost her niece. My marriage has become a separation (my husband was abusive).

At the end of September, I attempted suicide. I was lucky to have survived. I’ve slowly been getting intense outpatient care and working on building my life back up. I’ve been working hard. It’s a new path for me as a newly single mother and learning to keep my sweet Viola’s memory alive.

My mom needs extra support




We’ve lost a few people recently, my father committed suicide a little over a year ago. This was hard on my mom even with their tough relationship as exes. My father was an addict and it’s really been a tough time accepting things.

My grandmother just recently passed away. Since my sisters and I are all out of the house, I think my mom needs extra support because she was with her mother for the past 3 years as things were getting worse.

We’ve experienced a lot of loss




Hello, unfortunately as a family we’ve experienced a lot of loss. Most recently my Dad [passed] away in March at 51. I’ve also lost my aunt and a stepfather figure although 2 were more than 18 months ago.

It would be great to get away and have hopefully a healing and peaceful experience. Thank you for the great opportunity.

Papa was the only male role model she had




My dad had a stroke in November 2021. Then again in January 2022. Brain surgery, a massive blood infection, after months in the his he got to go to a nursing home for 2 hours where he was disoriented. Tried to get out of bed. Due to being in a bed for months he didn’t have the strength. Fell. Hit his head on the wall. The impact severed the nerves in his neck. More brain damage and now paralyzed.

Im a single mom of a 7 yr old. My mom passed years ago. Dad was about all I really had.

He passed in September. My daughter has been devastated with all the loss in her short life. Papa was the only male role model she had. The only person that’s stuck with her, taught her, and helped her. The only one she’s really counted on.
