Fund for Medical & Family expenses

My mother, Amy, has two daughters; Taylor (17) who is going to be a senior at Pacifica next yearHeather (Myself, 26) student and single mother
Amy's grandson, Ellis (3).
Amy was in a traumatic car accident April of 2015 which caused her much physical pain as well as mental disorders due to the experience.
Since then she has been depressed and physically weak- which then led to complications.
On June 10, 2017, My mother was hospitalized for 6 days with the outcome being that she has a major illness that requires much medical attention as well as medication. Unfortunately, she has no medical insurance because of the same struggle as many; making too much at your job. She was told she needs to go on permanent disability and can then sign up for medical insurance again. We have tried to do so but nothing is being done because there has been  difficulty in communicating with the correct departments, being routed to one or another.  She is to the point that she is almost out of her meds, leaving her even more worried because she can't even have them refilled due to not having medical insurance.
Our home life has been a severe struggle both physically and mentally.   We are  worried not only about our mothers health, but also the medical expenses, bills, medication, and keeping a home over our head along with everything inside like the electricity, gas, water, and food on our table. We have been through alot as a family and are trying to become strong for eachother again but its at a breaking point and everything is falling apart.
I know many people are struggling or have struggled, but I just thought it wouldn't hurt to try. Anything will help us extremely and will mean very much to us. Thank you so much for your time in reading this and thank you in advance as well.
