Helping my mom stay strong

32165558_1534356640147972_r.jpegHello! My Name is Catherine. My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer almost 3 years ago in January(TERMINAL CANCER).
A year ago we found out that the cancer had spread to her liver, this year we found out that she has two tumors in her head and because of the pressure that the tumors are creating in the back of her head her throat muscles and her right vocal cord have stopped working the proper way preventing her from being able to swollow ANYTHING even her spit. My mother’s doctors have put a tube through her nose to her stomach so she is able to have her nutrients, she is drinking a very expensive milk called OZMOLITE1.5 that we have to order and pay for every two weeks but they are very expensive and I had To leave my job to stay home and take great care for my mother but unfortunately I am not receiving money from my job to be able to provide her the milk she needs. 
Every two weeks we have to buy 2 cases of milk that don’t exactly last the two weeks, sometimes I have to go alll the way to Columbia Presbyterian in Washington heights to ask nurses and sometimes beg them for milk for my mother. Right now my family is going through a lot of financial issues and it has been very hard to make ends meet especially now that I am not working and home taking care of her.
The money I am trying to raise for my mother will help buy the supplies that she really needs to be in ok health and also with her expenses as well until the city can start paying me to take care of her. 
My family and I have never asked people for help but in this time of need we’d ask anyone that can help to please do so. Anything helps❤️
Thank you for taking the time to read this and also dontating to her as well.
