My Mamma's Medical Bills

Hi my name is Tyler and I'm setting this up for my beautiful, amazingly strong mother. She's probably one of the strongest women on the face of the planet. My whole life shes never been one to ask for charity or anybodies pitty so shed more than likely be extremely angry at me for creating this. 
This crazy lady is a single mother of 4 (3 teenagers). Myself (Tyler), Edward, Halee & James. Shes done an amazing job at raising not only me but all 3 of my siblings, a young man in college on his way to becoming a chef/business man/entrepreneur. A daughter in her senior year of high school, on the varsity basketball team at her school, member of her schools leadership and also part time vitamin store employee. And last but not least her youngest son, a little guy on his way to finshing middle school, soon to be student athlete.  As well as helping raise her own siblings growing up. Shes been the rock for all of us to lean on, shoulder for us to cry on and only person we all could really depend on. But now is time for her to depend on us. My siblings are under my care as my mom  fights to regain all that she lost due to experiencing her first stroke.  
Dr.'s called it a severe hemmorhagic stroke. In lamens terms its a bleed in the brain, near her brain stem. So deep in that area of the brain that the only thing Dr.'s could do was give her meds and observe. After 8 days in the ICU numorous CT scans, X-Rays, Swallow tests, Physical thereapy sessions, Speech therapy sessions and Iv bag after IV bag my mom was finally in good enough shape to be moved to a telemetry unit. Where shell be until... well just about until I'm done typing this up. Shell be transferred to a rehab facility soon and thats where youll come in. She is partially paralyzed on her left side. Shes unable to walk let alone stand, but shes making progress. Although she cant eat or drink anything due to her throat muscles and left side of her mouth being affected. Side note: all she wants is a large Mango-a-go-go from Jamba Juice lol... Her left arm is getting better day by day but still needs a lot of rehab along with the rest of her body.
A few of my moms friends were the ones that talked me into setting this up to help eleviate some of her medical costs and now rehab/nursing home costs. With my mom out of commision the responisbility falls on me and my siblings to make sure everythings taken 's care of . It's tough to admit that I'm not where i need to be in order to help my own mother and  It's hard for me to ask for help, but if any of you out there have ever met me, my family or my mom for that matter you would know how much this would mean to us. Everybody who knows me knows my mom is basically my Queen! Aside from my Siblings and Girlfriend and the hand fulls of aunties and uncles and cousins my "Mamma" is everything to me. So with your help I could be able to get her the help she needs to make a full recovery. Big or small whatever you could do to help would be greatly appreciated. And know that with every doantion  youre able to make youre not just doing for my Mom but for a whole family that need their mother back at 100%!!! 
From the bottom of my heart. I love each and everyone of you that the time out of your day to read this and even if you couldnt make a donation just knowing that you cared enough about me or my moms story to read this means a lot to me. So please share this if possible.... 
Thank you all!!!
