(Scroll down for video) It is very hard for children to watch their mother suffer through medical problems.
Mounting medical bills adds stress to the situation and financial problems might hinder a possible cure.
One woman however, decided to take action to raise money to pay for her mother’s rising medical bills.
Rebecca Bernardo, 18, of Sapeacu, Brazil, hopes to raise enough money to cover the costs of the medical care of her ailing mother who suffered a stroke.
According to reports, Bernardo never knew that her father and sister died years ago. Now, Bernardo feels responsible to make money to pay off the bills.
Her mother does not approve of her plan to sell herself to raise money and wants her daughter to get a job instead.
The teen wants to raise a big chunk of money fast in order to pay off the increasing number of bills.
So far, the highest bid for her virginity is $35,000.
She is not the first woman in Brazil, to sell her virginity. She is following in the footsteps of another woman named Catarina Migliorini, 20, who sold her virginity for nearly $780,000 to a Japanese man in an online auction.
After the auction, Migilorini, has reportedly accepted an offer to pose for Playboy, but she is still a virgin due to visa problems.
