Single mom at rock bottom

We will all hit rock bottom at some point in our lives and we know that sometimes when it rains, it pours. That is what has happened to this family of four in the last couple months. First, mom lost her job. Then immediately had to undergo a hysterectomy, with major complications that took a toll on the entire family. Then during her recovery, she went through a terrible breakup that ripped her heart out. All while trying to focus on starting a new job. Then her teenage son gets into a terrible accident, totals his truck, only to find out that they only have liability insurance. Days later, mom's car breaks down and the mechanic says the engine is toast and not even worth fixing. Now, this family is left with no vehicle, bills piling up, and no way for mom to even get to her new job. If we can donate a little each, we can purchase a used car. Nothing fancy, just something that will get her to work so this family can survive. Please friends. Let's rally together. I know Ev will not take this boost for granted. She has hit rock bottom and she's ready to climb up and start this next chapter in her life.
