Barbara Alnas & Family Fund

As most of you know, This is My Mother, Barbara Hawes-Alnas. She was overwhelmed with the worst news in 2009 that she at the young age of 39 was diagnosed with Breast cancer, Almost exactly one year after she had became a first time grandmother to her grandson Isaiah. After 8 long strong years of fighting this battle for her life, there is nothing more they can do for her. She is now terminally ill, organs are shutting down and is on hospice in the comfort of her home. We unfortunately are in the process of loosing her. Each day that passes, she gets worse. More delusional, more confused, more tired, and in denial. 
I debated on making this for a few weeks now, because i didnt know how people would feel, but after hearing it from family, friends, my mom's co-workers insisting I do this, I decided to start a gofundme account.. 
My Mother is still here, She is unable to work, and is running out of financial funds. Her bills are starting to pile up, Along with a few of us who are helping take care of her, My aunt is working a minimum wage job and has been forced to take a lot of time off of work to be her sisters sole care provider at this time. We are making this account to possibly help with any donations towards our family. My mothers financial responsibilties as far as her home, utilities, etc, also some of our own bills due to taking time off of work to care for her.

If you could find it in your heart to help our family, it would mean the world to us. If you know our family, then you know how close we all are, especially how close my brother Louie and I are to her. Our mom is our world and most definitely our bestfriend. The stress of loosing our mom and missing her final moments is our biggest fear. We would like to be able to completely focus on her right now and being there as much as we possibly can.
We appreciate all of you and are deeply grateful!
