Help for single mom and 4 kids with COVID

This is a post from an amazing single mom, one who I advocated for in Special Education.  She is the BEST mommy.  She has 4 kids...and she is doing it all alone.  She and her 4 kids all have COVID19.  She is HUMBLE and would never ask for help.  See, this mommy will do anything for her kids (two of which have extreme special needs).  I am asking for support from anyone who can do it...any amount helps.  God has been so good to me and my family, as we are all healthy and able to have income.  AJ is a dance teacher, so she is unable to bring in income now and the sole care for her family is on her.  Please understand that the mask is essential- we don't know what we don't know until we are sick with COVID.  She posted today the following:  

"So I was waiting to share this partly because of judgement and partly because it’s not anyones business. That being said everyone in our house has Covid-19. Ive been extremely diligent but the younger kids father thought it would be a good idea to take them to a graduation party a bday party and then another bday party all of which had a ton of people there. They came home and a few days later started presenting with symptoms. Now I wasn’t totally sold on how bad this thing is and I know many aren’t but let me tell you it’s like the flu times 10 on steroids. We are literally sleeping all day and night we have every symptom on the list except the change of taste on top of that my entire body hurts as if I’ve been slammed multiple times into a brick wall moving hurts it hurst if anyone touches me also my joints are on fire. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone. My little girl is high risk and her doctor put her on a steroid inhaler 4 times a day immediately to hopefully prevent her ending up in the hospital. Please please please take this seriously. Stay home if u have symptoms sanitize don’t go to social events because now my whole house is suffering. I got half way to the kitchen and had to sit on the floor due to lack of energy. I hope we all come out ok but trust me when I say you don’t want this it feels like we are dying. We are following orders from the doctor to stay inside for 2 weeks and we won’t be leaving our place no matter what(exception would be to the ER) then once that time is up I’ll be sanitizing the shit out of our home and washing everything I can in the washing machine with hot water and a strong detergent. We hope you all stay safe and be careful. Send positive thoughts and prayers please."

Unemployment has been filed- but it takes time.  Her babies need a roof over their heads and food....

Thank you!
