FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

A family is in desperate need of new windows as the matriarch of the clan fights for her life.

Manila Prince is bedridden and the windows in the room continue to develop mold as she battles for each breath.

"I need help for some windows because of my mom and she has trachea and she has a ventilator, which breathes in and out for her. And we have this bad problem with mold building up on the windows, the moisture barrier," said Monica McDonald, Prince's daughter.

She said they have tried mold blockers along with other solutions and nothing seems to work.

McDonald said her mom has helped out the community so much and she would appreciate it if someone could now help her out.

"She's a great woman and she worked for neighborhood services CCAA all her life. And she's helped countless others. I'm just seeing if maybe someone can help us back," McDonald said.

It's been a tough year for their family. Last winter someone set fire to the door of their house and now they're dealing with the window issue.

McDonald said it's hard to ask for help and the family would certainly appreciate any assistance when it comes to the windows.

"We're not prideful. We're thankful and we're so thankful for any help, if it's one window or just two in her room that would be great help. That's all we ask for," McDonald said.
