I am trying to raise money for my mother who is 80 years old. We just found out 2 weeks before Thanksgiving 2017 that my mother has Stage 4 esophgeal cancer with about a year to live. She takes chemo every two weeks at Methodist at the medical center. We are at the medical center sometimes 3x a week and it's so expensive to drive down there with parking , gas etc. Her medical bills are rising so fast even though she has Medicare she still has a lot of medical expenses to pay out of her pocket. She lives on social security alone. My father, her husband of 61 years passed away in August 2016.
I cannot work so that I can care for my mother, she requires round the clock care. My husband was laid off his job last of November and we have not had any income coming into our house to help with my mother.
We are all struggling so much right now financially, mentally and every thing else in between. There are days that sometimes I think Jesus please give us the strength to carry on. We are continuing to believe in a miracle for our Mother. We are just trying to ask for some help for her so that she can enjoy her last year of life as much as possible without any financial burden on her. Thank you and God Bless each and everyone of you.
