Mom's (Kathie's) Medical expenses

I thought and hoped I would never have to do this, but I guess my pride has to take a back seat to my mother.
This morning, I found my mother sitting outside hiding from me crying. I asked what was wrong and she said it was because she’s stressed out trying to figure out how to pay for some more medical expenses. As many of you know I take care of my mother for she has been diagnosed terminally ill with lung decease. Over the past few years she has had many medications and procedures that have not been fully covered by her Medicaid and Medicare. As such we have had to pay for things out-of-pocket. Currently, the meds she has been on for many years has taken its toll and she lost all her teeth a few years ago. She has tried dentures but because of her small mouth and receded gums they would always cut in and cause her more pain.  She has hated not being able to enjoy many foods because of having no teeth and her self-esteem is at an all time low for she can’t smile or talk properly with no teeth.  She has found a place that will do implants for her at about half the normal cost. However, normal cost is between 25 and 50 thousand dollars. As such they have said they could do it for around 12 thousand dollars. We have been able to come up with 4 thousand, but that leaves us with still needing $8 grand. With what we have they said they could start the process which takes about 3 months before she finally has the implants. But we need to have the amount in full in 3 months. So I ask of the community to help if you can.  If we reach the goal I believe by taking some withdraws from credit lines and such we will have the 8k needed in 3 months. Every little bit helps.  Thank you and blessed wishes to all.
