HELP MY FRIENDS

My sister has fought through so many hurdles and managed to recover raising two beautiful children one who is studying to be a doctor the other still in high school. She had no help to raise these kids and did it all on her own. But in the last few years she had had one medical issue after another. She survived Ulcerative Clostridium difficile and had colon removed that was damaged.  Shortly after this suffered head trauma from the paramedics dropping her causing severe visual changes that led her to the ER for treamtent just to be told nothing was wrong.  She was sent home only to get a call less than 24 hours later to be told she had a middle right cerebral artery aneurysm in need of emergency surgery.  She went in for an initial scope for her aneurysm and they found a huge blood clot in her leg. As all the doctors argued over what was the safest way to get her through these surgeries our mother fell very ill. I flew to our mothers side, my sister crying because she was not allowed to travel and more concerned about being with our mother as she took her last breath then her own life threatening medical situation. She had her first surgery but they could only remove part of the clot.
We dealt with our mothers death together over the phone, my sister at my side over the phone as I cleaned out 72 years of our history. Shortly after then my sister had her second surgery to have a filter placed in her vien to prevent a stroke during her brain surgery.
In her recovery from that we figured out how to handle my mothers remains and her personal items. 
One month later she had her brain surgery.  They had to place a clip in her to prevent the aneurysm from erupting.
All went well with the clip but her vision is lost in one eye and they cant figure out why. She recently has suffered a cerebral leak which has caused a lot of swelling. She still has not gone in for her other two surgeries to remove the filter and the rest of the clot.  To make matters worse they diagnosed her with MS and told her during her scans it has progressed.
The doctors will not release her to work for another 6 months. She has exhausted all of her savings with no other income because she can not work.
She posts positive posts everyday on facebook while still trying to help out her friends any way she can.
She has her son she is caring for him alone.  A single mom in fear of wear the next meal to feed them will come from but to proud to ask for help.  Our parents are helping her with a home and utilites as much as they can but that is tasking them financially as well.
For the first time she is finally coming to the breaking point as the medical situation has not improved and her want to be independant and help others.  She refuses to ask for help as she feels there are so many others in worse need than her... I admire that but she is in need until she can return to work.  
Please donate to helping her as she has given to so many even when she could not it is time for her to have it paid forward to her. Any amount will make a huge diffrence. God Bless.
