Please, help my mom

My mother has experienced a very hard few years. It started with her losing her home to predatory lending practices. Then after I moved her to be closer to me, she was brutally attacked while rescuing a dog. She required emergency surgery and will likely require another surgery soon. To make her life easier and more comfortable, I moved her back to Ohio. Since being in Ohio, the storage company that was going to move her stuff to California credited her the entire amount that she owed them. Now, we are simply trying to get her stuff moved from that storage facility back into her house so she can not sleep on a mattress as the only piece of furniture in her home. At almost 73 years of age, she would be happy to work but the job that she had been promised only minutes from her home in Ohio became unavailable until somebody retires which is not guaranteed or predictable. Working as an older person in the pharmacy industry is not easy or often even possible. People may ask why I'm not helping her, but I am as much as I can by covering as many bills as I can possibly pay it for her as often as I can. I too have been struggling but decided after helping a friend in an emergency and witnessing human kindness, that I would give this a shot. Please, help however you can. They are only giving us a short amount of time to raise the money to pay them to move the stuff before they put it up for auction even though they credited her far more money towards the bill for her storage. She has another surgery coming up and it would be much better for her recovery if she didn't have to sleep on a mattress on the floor. Please, please help. Please share this post
