I'm 18, about to become an orphan, and have been put in charge of our family finance. What do I do?

My dad died a while back of brain cancer and I just learned my mother will soon die of brain cancer as well. We don't know how much time my mom has but she can still talk. I know little about money but have a 20 year old sister and 15 year old brother and I will be withdrawing from college to take care of my family now. I'm terrified I will mess everything up by forgetting to pay a bill or not knowing how to save for my brother's college. We aren't in debt, but I don't know what to do with our house or anything. I don't even know what I don't know and I'm freaking out. Also, I can't stop crying. Please help me, guys... What do I do?

Do not left the Education. It will take you the success.


I can be understood your situation and without the help of others, it is not easy to live. I think you three of them are studying and also difficult to continue your studies because of lack of money. I will pray for you to get the courage to overcome form this situation.http://www.howtofixmyprinter.com

Become an orphan in 18 was really a tragic incident. I don’t know how you can handle all these emotions. While reading your story, I feel very emotional too. Let’s pray for the come back of your mother from illness. I will definitely pray for that and God have the ability to make miracle in your life.pariscitytourguide.com


I think you should focus more on the type of education that people/ educational institutions today are providing to students. On the other hand there are services that provide Dissertation Writing Help to student as they claim that they are actually helping out students in completion of their final work before exams.

Though modern technology has its own advantages, providing best college paper writing service, but still few ancient arts such as architecture which began in early 1920s has its own significance. it is no doubt the art of beauty and elegance
