Family members always look up to each other for help when things get tough, but sometimes, siblings can be engrossed in their own needs and leave a bitter taste in their family's mouth.

Recently, a man and his family became estranged after he refused to help fund his brother's rehab by selling his engagement ring, which he had saved up to get.

Ronald is the richest of his siblings. He is a successful realtor in New York, and his success enables him to fund his lavish lifestyle.

Although Ronald had enough money to live large, he would never lend a helping hand to his siblings if they came calling for financial help.

His younger brother Alvin once had an accident that required surgery. He asked Ronald for help, but instead of helping, the latter went on a getaway trip to the Bahamas with his girlfriend.

Alvin took a huge loan to pay for his treatment which left him in the wrong place financially. Years later, he got an excellent job with a pharmaceutical company. His new career was paying well enough for him to clear his debt and fund his dreams.

His parents cut him off for not helping Ronald, and his siblings sent him texts calling him names.

Alvin has been with Jessy for five years and has dreamed of giving her a dream engagement ring. His girlfriend mentioned that her dream ring was an emerald ring which would cost about $6k.

Alvin started saving up for the ring, and recently, he was able to save more than he needed and planned to take Jessy to her favorite restaurant for a grand proposal.

He discussed his plans with his parents, who then told him to sell the ring and help Ronald fund his rehab. Ronald had become addicted to drugs, and it caused his finances to go down the drain.

Alvin's parents asked him to come to his brother's aid and help fund his treatment. The younger one refused, citing that Ronald never supported him and he was not going to help.
