Please Help Raise Money for My Mom

Hello, as some of you may know, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer about 6 years ago.  At that time, my mother was completely surprised, considering she had no symptoms and always had annual mamograms.  The doctor told her that the cancer was hiding behind her breast wall and sadly gave her about 3 months to live.  Since then, she has been fighting for her life.  Over the past 6 years, she has been through countless rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, on top of tons of bloodwork and tests being done regularly.  While fighting this horrific disease, she managed to go to work everyday.  Her doctor would always call her his "Miracle Patient".  Everything has been going well with the fight up until the end of February of this year.  She was at work and all of a sudden had no feeling in her legs.  We took her to the hospital where the doctors ruled it as a long term side-effect of the radiation.  They basically told us she would not walk again.  Since then, her health has been going down hill, quite rapidly.  We admitted her into a rehab facility where she received physical therapy.  This did not work, there was no prgression.  Her insurance then said that they would not cover any further therapy.  The decision was then made to transfer her into a nursing home.  This was going to cost $8000.00 out of pocket per month!  So, after a couple days, the difficult decision was made to bring her home on hospice.  We took her home, which she was happy about, and has been home now for about 2 weeks.  With the help of hospice nurses, private home care, and family,  she is comfortable being at home, but is, and always had, worried about money.
     I am reaching out to everyone to ask for your help.  If you can spare ANY donation to help with my mom's home care expences and final arrangements, the family would be extremely appreciative.  This is difficult for me to ask, and if you cannot, I completely understand....
  I really reallly appreciate you taking the time to read this page.<3
