Single Mother Needs help with Son's Medical Bill

My Story:

I am a single mother of 3 children and only one of them lives with me. My eldest lives in Florence, Italy. My middle child lives nearby and she is a young entrepreneur. My third is a 16 year old competitive high school and USA Club swimmer. I work as a Home School Assistant.

My son has multiple diagnoses including Tourette Syndrome, Depression, ADAD and Anxiety. Between medications and bi weekly visits to his therapists, our lives revolve around his needs and the costs of providing the supports he needs to continue to be a successful and happy adolescent. His sisters, although one is near and the other far, they are extremely loving and supportive to me and my son. Recently, my youngest son had a mental health break down that landed him in the emergency room. From there he entered an adolescent inpatient program at the hospital and after 5 days, he was transferred to the adolescent outpatient program where he participated in a 15 day out- patient treatment program. I earn just enough to cover our daily living expenses and the bill for the emergency stay alone has put me in a financial bind. I need Modest Needs help to pay this current medical bill for his inpatient hospital stay. This would allow me to pay my current mortgage payment and start saving towards his out-patient bill.

Assistance with this bill will allow me to be more financially stable. Although we live paycheck to paycheck, I am typically ready for most emergency costs. This unexpected hospitalization has given my children an opportunity to come together in a way that I never imagined they would have to. Demonstrating that it is ok to seek support from others is also an important lesson for them to see.
