Please help terminal cancer patient Sharon Laquier who is the single Mom of Joseph, 9, and is struggling very hard to make ends meet.

Sharon and her son Joseph LaQuier relocated to San Antonio, Texas, USA from Minnesota in September 2011 in hopes of beginning a new life after Sharon had been laid off and was having a hard time finding work.
Sharon immediately began working as a waitress while sending resumes and scheduling interviews in an attempt to obtain a professional position. In November 2011, after only a few weeks in San Antonio, Sharon was diagnosed with terminal Stage IV 3b non-small cell carcinoma lung cancer and currently receives palliative chemotherapy at the University of Texas Cancer Therapy and Research Center (CTRC.)
Having used up savings after losing her job and unable to work due to the permanent disability cancer diagnosis, Sharon and Joe are really stuggling to make ends meet on Social Security Disability income, which amounts to about $1200 a month. There are few other options for assistance in Texas. They don't quality for Medical Assistance and receive only $120 a month in "supplemental nutritional assistance program," or "SNAP," commonly known as "food stamps."
Any assistance you can offer will be greatly appreciated.
Facebook users can visit the "Shazz Fight Club" group to see photos and other documentation about Sharon's illness: https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/169167296512806/

Thank you very much for your kindness and generosity to help my mom and me make it through this hard time. Sincerely, Joseph Laquier
