Please Help My Mom

Hi, our names are Amanda and Rachael Shaw and as most of you know our mother Crystal has been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer and her thyroid has gone down the toilet. She has been in and out of the hospital for over 3 months before the doctors could figure out she had cancer or even a thyroid problem. She is now doing Chemo and Radiation to help get rid of the cancer and taking meds for her thyroid but with mom not able to work and dad having to miss work to help her they are nearing bankruptcy. After 5 kids and 35 years of marriage our parents have never come this close to bankruptcy. Us kids are trying everything we can to help them out as best we can but their medical expenses are just too much. Any little bit would greatly be appreciated and help my parents out a lot!
