Please help us help our mom

Dearest Friends & Family,

As things evolve our needs have changed. We have thus far worked out the letting go of moms apartment she's had for over 20 years and accepted that she is not coming home. She has 3 brain tumors that are inoperable, untreatable and have progressively over the last year and 4 months been shutting down different functions of her body. Mom is left handed and sadly she's become paralyzed on her entire left side. She's blind and deaf on her left side as well now. Her speech has been effected and most noticeably her behavior is unpredictable.

It has been a long and very difficult road that I have walked with her since day one. Although I have made many sacrifices to care for her, I would do it all over again. Our mom did anything and everything for us until Glioblastoma took her over. Now as things have progressed even more rapidly, the bills have piled up and the costs for her care are insurmountable due to her condition and the costs associated with trying to keep her comfortable in her unpredicted amount of last days has hit us hard, especially my brother who has power of attorney. $4000 honesty doesn't put a dent in what this is really costing out of pocket. Unfortunately, there is no life insurance, there was no savings, there is no one single wealthy family member that can take it all on and since she wasn't ready to retire, her income dropped significantly.

We greatly appreciate even the smallest donation to help our Mom. It really adds up and helps lighten this super heavy load as we grieve and try to keep our own lives together.

Bless your hearts and lots of love,

Maureen
