Saying goodbye to my parents

Two years ago I left my job so that I can take care of my dad who was diagnosed with cancer.  I helped both financially, with medical expenses and daily care until my dad passed away in February of this year.  My dad didn't have life insurance therefore, the burden was on the family.   Soon after my father passed, my mom became ill and in April she was also diagnosed with cancer. I tried looking for employment, but since I had to start taking care of her, my savings took a dive and again on October 13th she also passed without life insurance.  With being out of work and my savings depleted, I am unable to cremate my mom so she can rest in peace with her husband of 51 years. I am asking for about $4K - 5K to help me put my mom to rest and to help with some final expenses.  What ever any one can donate would certainly be a blessing to me.  24665230_15080251040_r.jpeg
