A gravestone for my mom Betty

Hello Everyone,

I never thought I would ask for help, but I find myself saddened every day by the fact that my mother, who passed away in May, does not have a gravestone. My mom found out only 9 months before she passed away from lung cancer, that she was even sick. She fought really hard for every last breath and really tried the best to let everyone how much she loved them before she died. She was only 59, way too soon.
My family is of very limited means and my mom had very little life insurance, not enough to cover everything. My daughter went to see my mom's grave this past week and it is only marked by a foam cross and dying baskets of flowers, no marker.
Any little amount will help my family achieve this goal of honoring my mother in the proper way and marking her gravesite. The picture above is a picture of me and mom only months before her death, and even then, with no hair, and short of breath, smiled for a picture with me.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
