Help my mother with expenses

Saturday evening we got the phone call that ultimately changed our lives. We received the news that our mother, wife, and daughter, Alicia Rieman has a mass in her brain that is bleeding, and that she was airlifted to the Vanderbilt medical center in Nashville Tennessee. This bleeding mass on her brain is causing pressure on the portion of the brain that controls communication, and is still bleeding. She then went in for a second mri coupled with various other tests to determine that she has brain cancer, and that it has metastasized to three other places, the liver, lung. and abdomen. As I’m sure you all know this is a lot for a woman who was healthy up until this point, to take in. All of us, her family, have traveled from New York, Colorado, Oklahoma, and other places in Tennessee to lend our support and be here for her fight. And fight she will, though it will be a long hard road to recovery. My step father has been here for her during this time and has been missing work, for obvious reasons, so I am asking for a little help for them, to take a little of the burden away, to cover some costs while this fight goes on. Any little bit helps m, whether it’s a monetary donation, or even just a share, please help me get the word out to get a little bit of help and peace of mind to my parents. Thank you so very much.

All donations will be used for medical and living expenses that are building up while my mother fights her fight, and my step father is there to help.

Any donations will be put into a joint bank account, naming my step father as beneficiary, as they share the account and my mother cannot make it to the bank, under the circumstances. Sorry for any confusion, and thanks for any and all help!
