Miss Brenda now needs our HELP

This fundraiser is for my sweet Momma Miss Brenda. I have watched her through the years give everything she has to help others, her time ,her money and her heart. Growing up she always owned daycare centers, she loved and provided for each child as if they were her own. Back in the 90s she got very ill doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with her...come to find out she had Lyme's disease from a tick bite. She had thousands of dollars in medical debts, she was forced to sell her daycare centers and her home. I watched my mom go from being the successful, vibrant, hard-working woman to a woman who was living in government-run apartment with nothing left to show for all her hard work. BUT she's a fighter she recovered, she got better! She started working again.  She will never be able to retire, My mom is now 76 years old and still working 40 plus hours a week.. Today she told me she lost her job, she assumes it's due to her age and inability to keep up with the younger staff. Her health is declining as we do with age. She has diabetes and other medical conditions. Cataract surgery is scheduled for September 18th. She has had two really hard falls in the past year.. one she broke her shoulder and the other her leg!

My heart breaks for her...I know how many people, how many lives she has touched.. she simply has the most beautiful giving soul I've  ever seen! 

I'm asking for donations to help my momma (Miss. Brenda) through this difficult time. She has already started applying for new jobs, but I'm sure due to her age it will not be an easy task trying to find something soon.
If she has ever helped you or your family please consider giving back to her in this time of need! 
Any donation will truly be appreciated
