As many of you know, my mom Amy DeArmas faced a terrifying and lengthy stay in the hospital after a treatment for a yet-undiagnosed issue went wrong and gave her encephalopathy, which mimicked a major stroke.
After losing and subsequently regaining all cognitive function, she is thankfully recovering well and we are all relieved. However, my family is now faced with serious hospital bills and her treatment is still not complete.
My mom’s friends kindly set up a donation page to help cover the costs and help my family in this difficult time.
We’ve had so much support, prayers, food deliveries, and more, and this has genuinely touched the hearts of my entire family.
But for those of you asking me what you can do now, this is it.
Many of you know my mom from the Traditional Learning Community where she tirelessly works to support the local homeschool community, from touching children’s lives in a positive way, to supporting new homeschool families struggling after COVID-19. My father Dan DeArmas also started his own business, Baltimore Taekwon-Do, where he also supports the community in the Catonsville area. Between this, the lives they’ve touched are countless.
Besides that, anyone who knows my parents (and my siblings) know that they are all the type to drop everything to help those they care about. They always have been.
They will self-sacrifice until they’re exhausted just to support their friends and family. They go out of their way to lend a hand on top of parenting 6 kids and running their own businesses.
If anyone deserves good to come their way, it’s my parents.
If anyone in my family has ever helped you in any way, this is the way to repay them.
They’d do the same for you.
Thank you again for all the love shown to my mom and my family. All of the kindness brings tears to my eyes. Even sharing this link is a huge help. May you all be rewarded for your kindness, help, and support.
