Friends, please lend me your ears for some sobbing


It's been like this for my parents since the day they got together; always being knocked down and tested. While it's ALWAYS been better since Tom, my step father, got us away from my biological dad, my parents have NEVER had it easy. So I suppose this is just par for the course. Tom was diagnosed with advanced Hepatitis C very recently, and it is completely ravaging his body. The treatment that he is on is extensive and makes him feel similar to someone going through chemo, therefore he can not work. He can barely get out of bed some days. Well, my mom lost her job at the university today and in 2 weeks loses her pay and health insurance. Tom's weekly injections alone will cost $46,000. Needless to say, they are in trouble.


I hope I haven't exhausted everyone we know with my charity work before I start working on the most important benefit of my life: The one to save my parents

I am so, so sorry to hear this. My father had hepatitis when he was 12 or so, and I know it was really rough on him and my grandparents.

Sometimes life just has no sense of timing. I'll say a prayer for you guys...
