Leave of Absence Help

It is with great sadness and the heaviest of hearts and I must return home to Florida say goodbye to my beautiful Mother. Her aggressive cancer has gotten to the point of malignant and a terminal state. She decided last month to blow longer continue with treatment because of the great deal of pain she is in. Living in Los Angeles is one of the best things that's ever happened to me, but it comes with a heavy price. Not being able to be there for my family during this time and not having the work time to be able to afford a proper, paid leave of absence; it is with a humble heart that I ask for your help. I will be out of work for one to two weeks to spend as much time with my mom is possible before she may be gone forever. But hope is that me getting to be there with my sisters showing our Mother all the love that we have, she will be able to make it and continue on... but I know that this could be goodbye. 

My time off work will be unpaid and unfortunately I cannot afford to miss my rent or expenses from my bereavement. Anything at all that you can donate would mean so much to me, I just don't know what else to do at this point. This is the most personal statement I have ever put out and painfully so. 
If you don't have anything to give I understand, just please pray my mom. Send her your positive energies. In which ever way you have faith, her name is Pamela. She is who I owe my life to, she is the woman who taught me to be an artist. She is strong, beautiful and kind and I wish we had more time.
Thank you, I love you all.It is with great sadness and the heaviest of hearts and I must return home to Florida say goodbye to my beautiful Mother.
