Help Patience with a life saving transplant

As many of you know my sister Patience was diagnosed with liver disease which within a month turned into liver failure. (I had info in here that claimed how much time the doctors gave her to survive, but I have decided to remove this statistic, because I believe putting a number or percentage to survive on someones life is not motivational, or respectful.) Patience's family was able to help her apply for benefits which are in the process of being approved. She will be transported to Houston to undergo treatment and wait for a liver. In the meantime the bills are astronomical. UPDATE*** We have decided to raise the limit for the donation amount. Patience is not healthy enough to withstand a major surgery at this point but she is making strides daily! We are raising the amount to have a new goal to work towards. This is all going towards the family to care for Patience. This includes but is not limited to flights, transportation, hotel rooms, and anything else to keep everyone comfortable. Most important is that we are there with Patience to continue to support her through this journey. The Beneficiary to this account is Vallerie Vickers, our Mother.
