Keep Kelly & Jake Afloat

A little over 2 weeks ago my brother, Jacob Anderson, was taken to the emergency room after aspirating on his vomit in the middle of the night. He has pneumonia as a result, and has been sedated on a ventilator a majority of the time since. There have been many failed breathing trials and attempts to get off the ventilator, and if one more is failed he will likely need a tracheal intubation.
For those who don't know, my brother is handicapped and my mom has been at home taking care of him as her main source of personal income for the past 10 years or so. Since Jake has been hospitalized my mom is unable to claim hours, and therefore will be without income for the time he is there. Today we were told that we are likely looking at another 2-4 weeks.
My mom would never ask for money,  but I know any little bit will help with unexpected lost wages she is facing and would be greatly appreciated!
