Money to survive

In january of 2016 my mother was diagnosed with a very rare cancerous brain tumor, she went through surgery but the surgeon was unable to remove all of it as it was too close to major brain activity including her memory. It is a non-aggressive tumor, but she is still going through migranes and is on lots of medication. She needs to get MRI's every six months, and possibly cyber knife surgery if it begins to grow larger. If that wasn't enough trauma to our family my father was involved in a very serious car accident in October of last year, which fractured his back and neck severly. He has been through three major surgeries, and is unable to work for the rest of his life. He has titanium rods and screws in his lower back from the fracture, also metal plated and screws in his neck. He has problems walking around everyday or doing normal everyday activities. They have been hit with a huge financial burden, medically, and paying monthly bills for their home. Any little bit of a donation would be greatly appreciated even if you can't donate please send your prayers.
