Help Bring my Family Home

Christmas Eve 2013 I receive a call from my mom. She tells me my sister had to have emergency surgery due to complications resulting from radiation treatments for Cancer. Sometime during or just after she had a significant stroke. Petra spent a couple of months in the SICU, and honestly I wasn't sure she would make it...well in true little sister form she proved me wrong, but She is now a hemiplegic bound to a wheel chair. I flew home to Georgia to help and be there for my mom, as soon as I saw my mom I knew her health wasn't the best. So as the annoying oldest child I made her go to the doctor. Sure enough there were a few things wrong...the worst was Lung Cancer. My mom has always been a tough Little ole German Lady, but this is overwhelming for her. She has been going through Chemo and Radiation as well as working part time and taking care of my sister. She cannot continue to do this alone. I need to help, but I need them here. I found a house here on Lopez Island. It's 950.00 a month, a bit more than my mom was expecting, but it's close to the Village and is roomy enough for a wheelchair. 
I need to gather enough money for First, last and deposit...also some money for moving expenses, they live in Augusta Georgia. Anything you can give will help and be much appreciated.
