Raise money for Mother's Funeral

Hello everyone, my name Austin. I'm trying to raise money for a funeral for my mother who died very suddenly a few days after going into cardiac arrest. Valentine's day (February 14th 2015) was the last day I spoke with her. My mom and I were very close, so I always give her a call on V-Day to let her know I love and her that I got her a gift and I was planning on coming over in a couple of days to see her and give it to her. Well, on the day I was going to give it to her, I received a phone call early in the morning. Come to find out my little brother (who wasn't normally staying with my mother at the moment due to a separation between my parents on top of all things) was staying with her and she apparently got off her bed and just fell over and wasn't waking up. They rushed her to the hospital as fast as they could but most of her organs had failed from blood loss and her brain and severe brain damage. The doctor let us know right away her chances and how there wasn't much hope for her. We tried pushing through it and hoping there would be a chance and the doctors were able to recover her organs, but after another brain activity test we received the devastating news that she would never function the way she used to again (She would be in a vegetative state). I am just extremely heartbroken. She left behind two sons and an entire family who loved her dearly. I am not even nearly well off and have no extra money whatsoever (especially after all the time i took off to visit her in the hospital). I just want her to have a nice funeral because she was an amazing woman who gave so much to her friends, family and children. Please, please find it in your hearts to help me raise money to give her the funeral and farewell that she deserves. If not to do it for me than please, do it for her.
