Funeral expenses for mom

My name is Candace McManamay and I am trying to raise money so my brother, Todd Bernett, and I can have funeral services for my mother. My mother had been living with liver disease for a very long time, and we knew eventually she would die from the disease. However, this came very quick and unexpectedly! On July 13th, she was well enough to go to a concert and was feeling great. On July 20th, I found my mother nearly unresponsive in her apartment, she was rushed to Berkeley Medical Center in Martinsburg, WV by EMS. She was intubated quickly and once stabilized she was transferred to Ruby Memorial in Morgantown, WV. It was a very long road with many small steps forward, then just as many backwards. Todd and I were not expecting a quick recovery as we were told that she had many other medical issues behind the current situation. After a two week stay in the MICU (Medical Intensive Care Unit) at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, WV, my mother passed away on August 3, 2018 at 1:25am. We have met with the local funeral home and we can not even bring her home to Martinsburg from Morgantown without being able to pay half of the funeral expenses ahead of time.  Please help us bring our mother home and allow us and the rest of our family to put her to rest. My brother and I do not like to ask for help but unfortunately we have no choice as we do not have the funds to do it on our own. Please if you can help with any amount would it be greatly appreciated.
