Help for our wonderful mother

Hello! My 3 big brothers and I are trying to raise money for our mother. She unfortunately has to have surgery at the end of this month. After battling two cancers(breast and colon) over the last 13 years, and dealing with intestinal blood clots, she has to have a permanent colostomy put in. However, being that she has had the same incision site opened up numerous times, there is too much scar tissue for the colostomy to be completed without plastic surgery. Medicare, her insurance, will not cover the plastic surgery part of this procedure.
The reason this surgery is so important for my mom and our family, is that she isn't able to be active in her current state. With a 3 week old grandbaby and two older grandchildren, she wants to be able to enjoy them fully, as well as be able to function in other aspects of her life. The complications from her past medical problems led to her not being able to even walk from the car to her place of work without intense pain.
We are asking for any amount of help with surgery. Please help me and my family provide this for our mom so that she can begin to enjoy her life again, and bless those around her with her company. Thank you all!
