Help my mother Nina Nabatova

My mother always taught me to respect and help others, never turn your back on people in need.
Right now I’m torn apart in a terrible situation combined with distance and limitations on helping her.

I was separated from my mother Nina Nabatova and older brother when I was 13 years old, due to circumstances in 1994 my family was broken apart and we ended up on different continents living far away from each other. I was relocated to the United States, my mother remained in Ukraine.

In the past 5 years, Nina went through a series of unfortunate events; her son (my oldest brother) passed away, then her husband and sister less than a year apart. These events triggered a drastic change in her mental state and social life. I was committed to supporting my mother financially, emotionally and simply expressing my love. However, the time passed by and her conditions worsened. 

On September 17th with unsuccessful attempts to contact or locate her, we had to make a call to local authorities to break in to her apartment home, in 7-hour period they refused twice. We had to go to alternative sources to get in to her apartment where Nina was found unconscious. That was a close call as for several days she was without food or water. Nina was admitted to a nearby hospital with memory loss and severe exhaustion.

Preliminary diagnoses shows symptoms of Dementia, that means she cant be released without care taker or proper place to stay. I’m working and doing all that I can to make sure she gets course of treatment and find a place for her to stay at least for a year.

At this point, I ran in to face to face with a corrupt medical system which will refuse what it obligates to do by helping people in need. With all this, I’m running low on funds and options to keep all medical and legal expenses. 33239296_1537886587115761_r.jpeg33239296_1537886690118728_r.jpeg
