I normally skip over Go Fund Me accounts and any other fundraisers for that matter. It has become an crutch for many people. Oh, I can’t pay my rent, I wanna take a trip, etc. Don’t get me wrong I know it’s hard out here for a pimp, or nurse, teacher, mechanic…. You get the gist of what I’m saying.
It wasn’t until the last two weeks that I started reading them and contemplating donating. Today, I read a story of a young teenager who died of a massive heart attack. He left behind his mom, a single mother, and two siblings. Poor kid had a rough life of diabetes, heart issues to include kidney and heart failure.
Also today I ran across a post dedicated to one of my best friends as an adolescent. She passed from inflammatory metastatic breast cancer 07/15. It wasn’t until today I found out this was sudden. Poor babe barely made it to her 30s.
My aunt posted, she never does this. She’s been fighting the same cancer. Was given 6 months, and is still here fighting 3.5 years later. And there are so other many touching and true stories.
Times are hard. No one can hardly afford basic needs due to how this world, government, society, lifestyle is set up. I wish I had all the money in the world, I wish we didn’t have to deal with these issues. Why can’t everyone just be rich and not have to worry about anything? Why can’t healthcare be more affordable? Why can’t healthcare come with a funeral expense? At these horrible times, no one wants to be burdened with frivolous issues such as money.
I’ve decided to donate, even though I am classified as the working poor. I’m happy. I just buried my dad and if we needed the money I would hope someone would donate for me and my family. I’ll leave you with this check yoself. Stay current with your appointments and always fighting like hell, even before you have a problem. Life’s too short.
