My mom...

At the very bottom of the site you'll notice I've added a "Donate" button for Paypal. Now, normally I wouldn't do this for the money because I really do enjoy blogging. It gives me a way to express ideas in ways I never thought possible. And to share those ideas with people all around the world. Anyway. two weeks ago my mother went to the emergency room and the doctor told her she had pink eye in both eyes. This was not the case. He gave her some drops and told her it would get better in time. Day after day she put drops in but the eye only got worse. She finally went to a specialist and he rushed her right to Jackson (the state) capitol. The doctor there said that the emergency room doctor had given her drops that had actually melted her contacts on to her eye balls. Now, she thought she had flushed her contacts out days ago. But since she was unable to see, she wasn't sure. So the doctor had to scrape the contacts out of her swollen eye. And then came the bad news.He would give her four different drops to put in every hour for three weeks. And if those drops didn't improve or didn't improve well enough then she would lose her eye. The drops are $200 each for three bottles. My sister was kind enough to buy the first three, but now my entire family is broke and terrified that my mother will lose her eye. My dad has already had two strokes and is unable to work. I myself am away at college and sending all the money I can spare.  I'm not asking anyone for any large donation. However, if you would like to help a family in need we would be forever grateful, and somehow we could repay you. Thank you everyone and keep my mother in your prayers

-Note, Picture above his her eye after two weeks of putting drops in it and it still looks that bad. Without more drops she'll have to  undergo surgery that could cause blindness.


  1. So sorry to hear, and honestly, if I hadn't ost my job 1.5 weeks ago I would click that button...

    - Roll by and/or get you free subdomain

  2. As a University student you have to understand my own financial situation but I'll still try and make a donation.

    Good luck though, if you want, I could post a message out on my blog, I'm sure one of my 500+ followers would be able to help you.

    Send me a message if you're interested.

  3. I would be very interested if you could spread the world. That would make me happy beyond words. Thank you very much to everyone and your support. Please spread the word for my mother. I can't wait to post pics of her beautiful eye once it's healed.

  4. I'm going to be very upset if this turns out to be totally untrue.

    But I donated anyway.

  5. Someone just donated some money and my mother and I cried for at least ten minutes. You have no idea what this means to us. From the bottom of our hearts thank you. And you will get the picture of her eye all healed up because of what all of you did.

  6. im so sorry to hear about your mom, i would donate but barely making ends meet as a college student with no job, hopefully getting the world out will help bring someone financially stable that can help... its the hardest thing to watch a love one suffer because money is the issue.

    ill keep your mom in my prayers and hope she gets better... keep us posted.

  7. If you guys could link this post to your other blogs and ask people to donate, even if it's just a dollar. that would mean so much to me. I've been holding her as she cries every night because she doesn't want to lose her eye. And sadly this is the only way I can help. To depend on the kindness of strangers. So thank you strangers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  8. Sorry to hear this bro. Problems are not only yours however. My mom is an Alcoholic and there's little I can do to help her. Parents are divorced, I live with my grandparents who am nothing like me. Totally opposite worlds. Our familys have no money and I'm fighting to stay in college with FinAid. I have a bight outlook for my future but it's rough.

    So I feel your pain, and if I prayed, they would go out to you.
