This is my mom she has been sick with  an unknown infection since November of 2017. She has been on antibodies usually a pic line or IV for all but 3 months of the last 2 years. She has had surgery to remove the infection in Oct of 2018 it didn’t work.  the infection came back. We live in a village 2 hours from the major hospitals, in Ottawa. My mom is a veteran she retired from the military 3 years ago after serving close to 24 years to our country and raising my brother and myself completely on her own. . I am 20 years old and the caregiver to her and my brother who has many disabilities and is 10. She has her  pension but it’s the only income in the house and with so many trips to Ottawa monthly I know it’s hard on her. She doesn’t qualify for any programs because she has an income, and we don’t know what the infection is so I don’t know where to turn to for help. She is all we have and we need her to get well we have no family or help  in the area. Our closest relative is Newfoundland. I am trying to raise money to hire someone to come in and help with meals and taking care of my younger brother.  That way my mom can rest and get better.

Just a little update my mom
has now been on antibiotics since Aug6th 2019. This one is apparently not working either the infection is back and growing by the  hour she was supposed to be seen by infectious diseases Friday she called her doctor today they can see her Thursday instead I was hoping for tomorrow. It’s looks really bad please keep her in your prayers all she wanted was a good Christmas with us. Thank you to everyone who donated Mathieu
