Relocate Momma to LA

Momma's Relocation from Memphis to Los Angeles  #GoBeyondGiving 

Hey everyone! My name is Brandee Evans.  I am trying to raise funds to relocate my mom to Los Angeles so I can be her primary care taker. 

Momma has Multiple Sclerosis.  In June 2014, my mom had a bad fall that made it mandatory for her to enter into a Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.  Unfortunately Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that only gets worse with time.  Since 2014 her disease has progressed aggressively.  She is now confined to diapers, unable to use her legs, hold her head up for long periods, speak clearly, feed herself, or control her arms fully. 

Bringing my mom to LA will allow me to care for her.  It will allow her to wake up and feel as normal as possible again.  She will be living in a home and not a facility.  When I was a little girl my mom said, “If anything ever happens to me please take care of me.” I promised my mom I would.  I am now preparing to keep the promise I made.

I am aware that this will be the hardest job I have ever done.  I am aware that my lifestyle will change.  I accept this challenge. 

I am asking for help to get the most necessary items needed for this transition.  I can’t allow my mom to spend her 3rd Christmas in a facility. Please help me bring her home for Christmas.

Thank you for your consideration.
Love,
Brandee

Hi everyone! Thanks for all of your help. Momma is adjusting to LA well. We are still waiting to be approved for Medi-Cal in LA. So, basically that means we don't have any government support yet. (In home care, diapers, discounts, etc.) I have been doing it all solo. Prayerfully help will come soon.

We are still battling the Kidney stone and frequent UTI's. Hopefully we will be able to see a Urologist in LA soon.

I have had a few people each out and ask if momma needs anything so I made an Amazon list. Thank you to all of you that have helped by either donating, reposting, calling, etc. Everything is appreciated. Thank you again.

If you are interested in the Amazon Link you can check it out here: http://a.co/egINOqu it's under "Diana Harrington"


Also, I have attached a few photos of Momma in LA. ;-)

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

Thank you again everyone for all of your support. We reached our goal for the most important medical equipment.

However, there is still much to do/purchase for momma. Being a caretaker is A LOT. I am learning this by the day. But I have faith that everything will come together.

Thank you all so much for helping to make this transition from Memphis to LA happen. I will keep you all posted.

After doing my research I have decided to get momma her own bed and mattress. The ones they send with insurance are whack. If my mom will be living in a bed and wheelchair then I want it to be comfortable. I still need to get her a comfy air mattress to go with it.
Thanks for all of your assistance George. And a high five to @sashamarimusic for finding this place!
