Mama's Covid-19 recovery

My family starts this GoFundMe hoping to gain some support for my mama's (Melissa Valk) road to recovery. She tested positive for Covid-19 on July 8th and within a few hours, she was in the ER and had to be intubated. My mama was in a coma for 6 weeks fighting for her life. She came home on October 6th, but without the use of her left arm and hand. Mom is also on portable oxygen 24/7, as well as struggling to walk at least a few feet every day. She is hoping to return to her office job once her doctor allows it, but the progress is very slow. Any assistance you can make to allow us to pay rent, groceries, meds, will be most appreciated. If you're unable to help, please keep her and my family in your thoughts and prayers! Thank you and God bless
