Donate to My Mom! by PurplePeepBits Donate to My Mom! by PurplePeepBits
So I’ve been contemplating for a couple years now on how I should come about this. As I don’t like asking for help or discussing personal tidbits about my life.

In 2007, my mom was involved in a life threatening malpractice causing her brain loss, broken ribs and nerve damage in both her legs. Resulting in her using a walker. All in which wasn’t her fault. Even after the accident she is very optimistic and humble and hasn’t asked for a thing. She deserves a second chance at life and a little happiness considering what a crummy year she’s been having.

My mom has exhausted every possible means. Insurance, health benefits, relatives’ and friends’ kindness. I need about $20,000 to pay for all the medical procedures, a nurse, her move and a new working functional car.

I don’t know what else to do except to ask. I’m embarrassed to do so, but if it turns out you guys are willing to help, and If I didn’t ask, I would never forgive myself. Please help this amazing lady. I currently don’t have much but I’ve posted up a few reward options. You can donate any amount. I’ll be eternally grateful.

Read more about her story here:

Donate Via GoFundMe.

Thanks, guys.

I wish you good luck saving and I'm really sorry I can't help :( I'll write a journal about this, though I'm not very popular, but maybe someone will read it and help uvu <3

Tara, have you thought about nominating your mom to something like the Ellen Degeneres show?  With such an unbelievable and miraculous story like your mom's, there could be a chance to get a lot of funding and help if you were willing to go through the hoops.  They have a nomination page on their website and everything, so maybe that could be another route?  Just an idea I had.

I've sent a letter to her before but I got nothing back. This was about a year ago. I couldn't wait any longer so I went with this.

This picture is all kinds of wonderful & gorgeous. It's such a shame I can't donate any money to you, i really is. But hopefully, me favouriting this will be enough.

ill pitched in a couple bucks on my pay day in a couple days, she seems like a nice person and i hate to see someone lose their mother.

I hope you get all you and your mom need, Tara!  You're my absolute favorite artist on DA, and have been since I joined 5 years ago.  I'll try to get the word at where I can, and even $5 from a stranger can help someone out.  Good luck to you, and have faith that your fans will help keep your family going! :hug:
