My mom has Multiple Sclerosis

In April of 2017, my mom was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). We learned that her illness had gone undiagnosed and untreated for almost 10 years. She's now 43 years old and over the last 6 months, her sickness and symptoms have progressed quickly. She is unable to work and had to quit her job. She will be getting a cane to help her walk and has a hard time with talking and keeping up with conversation. Right now, her fiancé, Jason is working as much as he can to bring in money while also trying to maintain the house. My younger sister, Brielle, lives with my mom and she is pregnant with twins. She's unable to work with a high risk pregnancy. Her boyfriend Cody lives in the house with her and is paying rent to Jason and my mom. My brother Blake had plans to go into the Navy, but decided to stay home instead. He has a part time job and is also helping out as much as he can. Jason's 3 kids are also living in the home every other weekend. Unfortunately, with all of this together, it's not enough. We have started the process of applying for disability, but that is going to be a long process. Until she is able to have a steady income coming in again, we're asking for help. $10,000 would be an amazing amount of money, but we are grateful for any amount that you are able to donate. My mom has always been one to give and never one to ask for anything, she raised 4 kids all alone and this is very difficult for her to ask for help and accept help from others! She is incredibly heartbroken about this terrible disease, but understands this is what we have to do!
