Financial Help In This Time Of Need

My parents have both been in failing health for awhile. My mom is the heart of this Go Fund Me, but in truth, it will help both of them. Ramona has been sick since March 2017, having trips to various doctors with no answers or concerns. Last week, my parents finally did the push for answers. This landed her at Mary Lanning Hastings E.R. for her to be transported to St. Francis Grand Island so that an ear nose and throat doctor could fully assess the situation. It was determined that he wanted more opinions. This lead to the transfer of her to UNMC in Omaha. Since the transfer she has had a biopsy on her throat for a mass that was shutting down her airway, a tracheotomy tube put in, a "cardiac event" (which we later would find out was a heart attack) and a heart cath today which lead to the find of three damaged cardiac arteries that will need to be repaired in an open heart surgery. THAT'S THREE SURGERIES IN ONE WEEK'S TIME. My dad has not left her side for more than a little bit and is kind of stranded in Omaha. This means he isn't working and we are seeing about getting dad his FMLA so that he doesn't lose his job. Even if he is able to get off work to stay beside mom, he still needs to make insurances payments to Walmart to keep their insurance coverage. But with that, all funds into the household have stopped. With the uncertainty of not knowing what all will be covered by their insurances, any money coming in would help with their normal bill, care for their house, and making sure dad is taken care of too (food or anything else he may need). Please give if you can and God Bless You.
