The family Of Minnie Lavender need financial assistance in getting the medical supplies that she needs!

On January 20, 2010 at 3:00am Minnie Lavender had a cardiac arrest which left her without oxygen for too long. The doctor's say that she is severely brain damaged. Since then my family and I have lived in hospitals and nursing homes. While my mom was in the hospital or in the nursing home I worked two jobs to cover the house bills. We stayed with her 24 hours a day we never left her side. The final nursing home my mom was in, was so horrible! They did not know how to take care of her properly and they were very rude. Because of this we never left, someone was always at the nursing home with her. At the end of April of this year they told us that we could no longer stay with her. When they said that I decided to take my mom home and care for her myself. While we lived in the hospitals I learned to do everything that the nurses did. We can’t afford to have a nurse to come in and turn her everyday and take care of her. So, I do it all myself, but my dad does help turn her when I have to work. I had to quit one job so that I could stay at home more and take care of her. Doing this made our finances very tight. I buy her diapers, medicine, wipes, her closed trach. system, and everything else she needs while still having to cover the house bills. I am barely making it. I turn her every two hours, give her medicine, do trach care because she had a tracheotomy, clean her peg tube, I am in charge of her feeding, I do her baths, I do her bath, I brush her teeth, everything for her and work a job. I love my mom she is my best friend, counselor, and teacher. Please help me give her the best care I can. I was a sickly child and my mom cared for me, now its my turn to care for her with all my heart.
Please Help Me!
