Family Needs Urgent Help

This is my sister and her family in the photo. On February 8. 2015 my 35 year old sister, and mother to my 2 beautiful nieces suffered a bleed in her brain. She was in a coma and on a ventilator.She has pulled through the coma but with some major changes. She has no use on her right side and her right side vocal cords are also paralyzed. She also suffers from a disease called familial dysautonomia. She has always worked, and until this happened she held 2 jobs. Her husband suffered a major heart attack last summer and had to have a stint/shunt put in. He died on the table but amazingly they brought him back just as they did my sister. He also had to have back surgery. When my sister leaves the hospital she will be going to a rehabilitation center. When she is done at rehab she cannot go home since her apartment is not handicapped accessible and she will be in a wheelchair. Since neither of them are physically able to work now there is no income coming in at the moment to help them or their daughters. They need help in raising money to move to a handicap accessible place and to pay their bills and care for their children. Please help them.
