Medical Emergency, help needed for chronic illness

I Lalita Chatterjee, suffering from life-threatening, undiagnosed, chronic illness since past 18 years with no effective treatment so far with western medicines. 
This illness has reduced my ability to even perform my daily household chores and am jobless since 2004. I get acute swellings around right side of my face, inside my mouth causing difficulty in eating, speaking and breathing. I have severe Asthma and chemical allergies hence can't use any chemicals around the house. Any exposure to chemicals causes severe facial swellings. Along with this I have food allergies hence cannot consume any food with preservatives and food colors. These conditions have caused several hospitalizations and exorbitant bills.

The only treatment that keeps me alive is taking REIKI daily, from a Reiki healer whose expenditures are causing depletion my current savings. Reiki treatment is not covered by any medical insurance. 
In this situation, I have the sole responsibility to take care of my 75-year old, mother, who is bed-ridden since past 6 months, suffering from acute Diabetes and it's critical complications like urinary infection/kidney infection, requiring frequent hospitalization. She needs 24x7 nurse for feeding, cleaning and administering her medicines and injections.

My mother's recurring hospitalization and home-care is putting a huge financial burden on us. She has no Medical Insurance in INDIA or any other source of income to sustain this cost.
Your generous donations will help my mother to manage the frequent hospitalization expenditures and daily medical care at home including oxygen cylinders, medicines, nurse etc. This will also help me for my daily REIKI expenses.

Currently my mother is hospitalized in India, in Intensive Care Unit(Emergency Care) and requires URGENT funds. I have reached a point where my savings have dried and left with no other alternatives. We have no other means of support for our medical needs.
