Louise Kilgore To Family Reunion

Please help me get Mom (Louise Kilgore) to the Kennedy Family Reunion. I'm Laura Smith, her daughter. Mom wants so much to go to her Kennedy Family Reunion on August 26th 2017. That would require a nurse to care for her needs while I drive the 600 mile round trip. I am trying to raise enough money to hire a private nurse to travel with Mom & me to the Family Reunion. It will be quite expensive, but it is the safest way to transport Mom, who is paralyzed on her right side and has to take insulin shots periodically throughout the day. She was evaluated and the company has agreed to provide a skilled nurse to accompany Mom to the Reunion. There is also the cost of a hotel room for 2 nights and food for three. I have injured my hip and can not lift anything for some time, so I would not be able to attend to Mom's needs on a trip. I've been out of work since Mom's stroke am relying on a partial income and have to have oral surgery at the end of July. My Mother, Louise Kennedy Kilgore had a stroke while visiting us for Christmas and has been in and out of rehab facilities ever since and has never been able to return home. She is 300 miles from her home and misses her family and friends in the Bristol Virginia area. We are grateful for any size donation. Thank you.
