help lourdes my sweet mom

In the middle of December, 2017, my mother Lourdes Aguirre Maquivar, age 88, fell in her apartment at night and broke her right hip.  Her son  Ricardo, searched for a hospital that could take her and not be too expensive.  Finally, the next day, she took the ambulance to the hospital and had an operation.  This cost 172,000 pesos, or $9300 USD.  Our family collected close to 73,000 pesos, almost $4,000,  leaving a debt of close to 100,00 pesos or $5,500 USD.
We are reaching out to you to seek your valuable help to pay this debt and to contribute to her recuperation and rehabilitation. 

it is very difficult to pay the debt and all the cost of the rehabilitation.  She has only limited retirement income and our family has paid all we can.

This will take several months of appointments, treatments, wound bed recovery, medicine and travel between Tepoztlan and Mexico city for rehabilitation  The cost for this recovery will be 48,000 pesos, or $2,600 USD.  We are asking friends and family to contribute to her medical and rehabilitation needs in the amount of $8,100.  We are very worried about her health and having the large debt is lot of added stress.
This number is an approximate, and honestly we will let you now if become less or more.
Any help you can offer will be deeply appreciated and applied to the debt and her rehabilitation.

Thank you very much.
