Julie's Brain Injury- Help with Bills

The day before Thanksgiving 2013 my mother Julie was in her garage getting down her Christmas decorations. She fell from a ladder and hit her head on the concrete. Bad. She suffered a concussion, and her short term memory is nearly non-existent. After seeing a few different Doctors they said that the only cure for her memory loss is time. Hopefully. She may never get her short term memory back at all.

Since that day she has not been able to work. She could not do certain day to day tasks that were required at her job. She has been out of work for nearly 2 months now with no income & the bills are piling up. Imagine. I do what I can to help her but it is no where near enough. Her short term disability through her work has been nothing but a nightmare & we still haven't seen a dime.

If you know me or my mother (or even if you don't) and you can help out, please do. Even if you cannot, please share this so we can help with the crushing amount of bills due.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I truly  appreciate it, from the bottom of my heart.
