my final request

my name is Sherry Shanklin. 
I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on October 14th of 2016. I have fought a good fight. I can feel the cancer winning so I don’t have long. So, I am requesting all the help I can get for my kids. I have no choice but to leave behind. My mother will be filling for guardianship once I am gone. The problem I face and need help with is financial. I want to leave them with something. My greatest wish is to leave behind enough money to at least, pay the lawyer for guardianship, pay my final expenses and pay off my trailer. So, they have a steady home. If possible some money to help my mother take care of the kids in the years to come.
She has her own health problems and has very limited income. My mother took us in when we had no wear to go. She has been my rock when I needed, a shoulder when I needed. She has been everything to all that have needed her. No mater how hard it maybe. Now I have need of help she can’t give so I am asking for others with a heart please help me. As my final wish I ask for help, to help my mom. In helping her you help my kids. Due to circumstances two of my children have no father so all they have is my mother.
