Karen's Loss Wages & Dialysis Fund

My name is Marcella and this is for my mom Karen. Karen has been there for me all my life. As a single mom she has worked all her life to provide for me. She is the most kind hearted person I know. My mother is diabetic and prone to infections and loss of kidney function. We discovered this when she was hospitalized 5 years ago with an infection her stay was two months. The second time she became ill in 2017 her kidneys were failing and she had to fight another infection she was hospitalized for one week because we caught it early. Today, Karen is hospitalized again with diabetic kedoacidosis as her kidneys are failing and she will need dialysis. My mom has not been able to work like she used to for the past 2 years. When she was asked by the doctors if she wanted to be resesetated or put on dialysis if need be she responded "No, I do not want to be a burden to my daughter". I know we are struggling to make ends meet but I have never thought of my mom as a burden. If could have her with me forever, I would. If you can help in anyway we would me most greatful. Please keep my mom in your prayers.
