Mother that gives year round needs help this Christmas

SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

The holiday season is all about giving, but one local woman is known for doing that all year round.

But after some health complications, she finds herself in a different situation this year.

So she is asking the TV5 Rescue Squad to come and give her a hand, but she isn’t looking for gifts.

“We stopped being able to give and now we’re kind of asking for help,” said Tyann Krapohl, a mother of nine children.

Karpohl and her family are in a financial bind this holiday season.

“This past year been different than most years,” Krapohl said.

Krapohl has had a tough year as she and her husband have had a series of health issues which held them back from working. Now they are asking for winter coats for her daughters.

When she was able to give back, Krapohl gave away food, beds, and car rides to people in need.

Krapohl has not only helped people, but she’s also helped rescue animals.

“I know that we’ll be back up there to be able to help the community again because that’s what we do and what we like to do,” Krapohl said.

Krapohl said the family’s financial struggles have put a damper on their holiday cheer.

“It’s really put them a little bit that they can’t give as much as they use to,” said Sara Krapohl, one of Tyrann’s daughters.

Sara said her giving back is what makes her parents happy.

“That’s part of their personality and who they are, they always give,” Sara said.

In an effort to raise her mother’s spirits, Sara asked friends and family on Facebook to send get well cards to their house and they got a great response.

“We got at least 25-30 people to respond and each one has made her smile,” Sara said.

Meanwhile, Tyann Krapohl is asking the community to give whatever they can to help her family during the winter months.

“If anybody does see it in their hearts to help, it’s so embarrassing to ask, but boots or coats for my kids,” Tyrann Krapohl said.
