Spouse in need of help for special needs child and wife who was severely injured in a roll over crash.

Looking for some help! Recently my family went through a very trying time. My wife was in a severe car accident. Her vehicle rolled over into a wooded area of the highway she was traveling on. Due to the traffic coming to a complete hault infront of her, and her not wanting to hurt anyone infront of her. She did the next best thing and tried to prevent a bad situation.... Unfortunately putting her own life at risk. Trying to keep the vehicle under control she did her best to avoid hitting anyone else, the vehicle wasn't able to be controlled. It ended up rolling over and ended up in the woods. She was med flighted to Mass General Hospital in Boston and had to under go emergency surgery. She was admitted to the hospital for a week and still has to go back and forth to the hospital for check ups. In the accident she nearly severed her left arm. If it wasn't for an off duty fire marshall she could have died. This gentleman who whitnessed the accidednt was there to help stop her bleeding until the medics could arrive. She is still in a lot of pain and doesn't have any use of her left arm. She is at home and unable to work. She will be out of work for many months. Being an independent person who now has to rely on me to take care of her just to do the things she could normally do on her own. Along with taking care of her I also have to take care of our special needs daughter who is 5. I stay at home to take care of our child while she was the one who worked. She was the bread winner keeping this family afloat. Due to the accident she is unable to work and money that we had saved up is slowly fading away. With family and friends coming in with there support helping the best they can we are greatful, we couldn't ask for anything more from them. But unfortunately with all the help we have recieved we are still in need of money and I just don't know where to turn. If this wasn't a trying time for my family I wouldn't even think of asking for any help. But struggling and at a loss I don't know where else to turn. We never look for hand outs and my wife busts her butt on a daily basis to make sure we have what we need. But now she can't, she needs to get better and that is the most important thing right now... But that comes with a cost supplies to wrap her arm and to keep the bills paid are adding up fast. Our other vehicle isn't running well anymore. So having to depend on rides to the hospital weekly is making my wife more and more depressed. So I'm trying to take some of the burden off her mind and doing anything I can to get some help. So I'm not asking for much I'm just looking to help us get through a rough spot. The cold weather is coming and I just want to make sure my family is warm and keep the roof over our heads. Just until she is given the ok to drive and hopefully get back to work. Any and all help would be such a blessing right now.
