Heart surgery & help daughters

Our mom had major open heart surgery for the second time. It was a 12 hour operation which required multiple major procedures on her heart although she went in originally for one aortic valve replacement. Her recovery has been very hard and critical. We are full time college students, and we live 5 hours away from the hospital our mom is at. We need to pay for medical bills, a place to stay here, and other necessary living requirements. She will be here for months in the hospital and in rehab because she has to be close to her surgeons and doctors here. Therefore, we need to be here for her during this critical time. Our mom is the kindest person who has such a strong will to live! We’re all so close to each other, and our mom’s situation is devastatingly critical. Any little bit will help us be there for our mom and take care of her medical needs. Thank you from to bottom of our hearts to hers!
