Cancer sucks 2x, now my mom Elaine

Well first thank you all for your generosity, it is appreciated more than you know.   We thank you for your continued support.  Unfortunately for my mom, some additional things are occurring that have increased her financial burdens beyond her control and means.  She is now in dire need of getting her bathroom repaired, due to she only has one  and is due to start treatments on June 5.  Apparently after filing a claim with All State and being informed there would be no problem she now received information that her claim is being denied and now not covered.  We are not sure exactly how much this will be, so any financial help will be a blessing.    Also if you are able or know any one able to assist in repairs we would also appreciate that to.  You think that lightning won't strike twice and then you see it happen to not just one parent but both parents.   My wonderful dad Pete Terreri Sr. fought hard for 3 years battling Lung Cancer and passed away on January 8, 2016 and now my precious mom Elaine Terreri has to also battle Lung Cancer.  Of course with this devastating diagnosis comes with its own financial challenges, along with the difficult financial strain, stress, and unrelenting grief of this past year without my dad.  Chemo and radiation are going to be her cross and hopefully we pray will be a curative plan to give us more time together.  She is the only light in my brother's life and her grandchildren, sisters and brother love her dearly.  I of course will be as lost as she feels now,  without her.  On top of everything she is going thru and has dealt with over the years she doesn't seem to get a break.  Recently someone wrecked into her car and her bathroom has a severe leak which left a large hole in her ceiling and has to be repaired before she has to start her treatments,  The financial avalanche of deductibles for car insurance,  home owners insurance, car and hotel rentals for needed repairs to her car and house and of course the ever increasing medical bills for treatments and needed medication for pain and symptom management are overwhelming.  If you are able to help thank you, if you are able to pray thank you.
