Getting LaNita Back on Her Feet

The Cause:
Last December, LaNita, our mother, became very ill. She was admitted to the hopital with tremors, uncontrollable drooling, sleepwalking, and extreme mental confusion. LaNita was not able to return to work until March. By the time she was able to work, she had lost her job, her apartment, and any means of income.

Thankfully LaNita has healed AND recieved a job in the DFW area and she can start working and earning money so that she can get back on her feet. The problem is that starting next week, LaNita will have to leave her youngest daughter's house because her daughter will be going back to college and her roommates will be returning. Both of LaNita's daughters live in OKC while LaNita's new job is all the way in the DFW area.

LaNita will not have income until the end of the month of August. This is why we have started this go fund me. For the next month, LaNita will have the following expenxes that neither of her daughters or her can afford.

This is the cost estimate for a months time:

Cost of a hotel:
$1,800.
(This will pay for a cheaper hotel for a month, either a regular hotel or an extended stay depending on what is available.)

Cost of groceries:
$400
(Hopefully this is rounding up so that LaNita can save some money as well.)

Cost of gas:
$100

We appreciate all of the help and support! We have tried helping our mother, so has our father, so have family friends. Unfortunately she has needed help for long enough now that we just can't afford it on our own.
With this new job she has a chance to get back on her feet again! If we do not help her throughout the month of August, she will not be able to take this job. She is facing homelessness without this help since she can not live with my sister, me , or my father. This is her way back into the working world and back to taking care of herself. Please help us. Please help her. Thank you so much!
