My father was sick for most my life and being the oldest it always fell on me to care for my 3 sisters and brother you know keep them on the right path while my Mother tended to my Father. My father passed away after a brave battle with a horrible hereditary disease. My mother got cancer and had to have a hysterectomy before my Father passed but it was too late the cancer had traveled to her liver. She fought hard but six months after my Father died my Mother passed. When my mother was in the final weeks of her life she wanted to see me.

 

At that time she asked me to be the legal guardian to my sisters and my brother. Even though I was only 18 years old I said yes because I couldn’t let my Mother die wondering what would happen to her children. Then one of the Sisters got the hereditary disease. It was more hospitals and doctors it was rough. We had to go to Shands Hospital in Gainesville where she underwent 4 out of 5 brain surgeries. The last brain surgery caused her to be bedridden for the rest of her short life. She died at the age of 26. It was hard so very had to lose her too. I’ve never been able to follow my dreams and I could tell you more about my life but it definitely hasn’t been an easy path to travel ever.

Even though I am 60 I still try to look good and take care of myself. I ride my bike pay for treatments to my face when I can but a full makeover would be a dream come true. This makeover I know would help my self-esteem. When I look in the mirror all I see is someone trying to stay as youthful as possible but not having what is needed to look better or see a difference. I know a makeover would not make me young again but it would sure help!!! Thank You for considering me.
