Help Vienna Receive her Surgery

Hello, my name is Christina and I am 20 years old. I have never had the chance to really know my mother and how much of a fun, beautiful person she is with out the excruciating pain she endures everyday. About 10 years ago my mother Vienna found out she had slipped discs in her neck that is pinching her spinal cord from a terrible fall she had. I remember when she would have major headaches, and every day since then that has passed her pain becomes greater. Doctors would tell her they were just migraines, but they later came to find out the real problem through an MRI. My mother relies on about 13 different pain medications just to help her get through the day. She is getting to the point where the medication is no longer relieving her pain. About a couple months ago, her doctor told her that her liver is swollen because of all the medications and that they need her to get neck surgery so she can stop the medications and get her liver in good condition again. The only place that will accept my mother as a candidate for surgery wants a copayment of $16,000 and they're located in Arizona, we live in California. My father is the only provider in our household given that my mom is unable to work because of her medical conditions.  Because of this we are struggling to pay for her $16,000 surgery. Every night I go to sleep thinking about my mother and how she is not living a good, quality life. I cry to myself because I see what she has to go through everyday. My heart aches because I don't get to see her smile and laugh like how I remember when I was about 6 years old. All she deserves is to be happy and living without an ounce of pain. My mother Vienna is the most loving, caring person someone could ever meet. She always puts everyone else's needs before hers. She gives gives gives and never takes. My father gave her an Indian nickname: "Two Hearts" because of how much she gives and loves people who are not even related to her. Please, I'm asking that someone give to her because I no longer want to see my mother cry. I just want her to live the remainder of her life happy. Please help us to reach our goal.
