A single mom w/2 boys, 1 is a "special child" & I'm trying to raise money for her car repairs!

I am friends with a single mom of two boys, & she is in dire need of help!

Her 91 Accord broke down (Timing belt broke, or for those who don't work on cars this means the motor is unusable, & has to be replaced or rebuilt, that could include machine shop work if there is internal damage) & she doesn't have enough money to fix it or replace it.

I've been checking around & it will cost her minimum $1,000 just for a new motor + whatever a shop might charge & this could be upwards of $2000-2500 or more. This will cost way more then she could ever come up with, esp when she is on a limited low-income.

I would like to mention that the "possible $2000-3500" is more then the car WAS worth BEFORE this happened.

Major problem with her car is that she might get $500 for her car as it sits right now. She has to have a working car with one of her sons having a serious medical condition. (hydrocephalus) and she NEEDS to be able to rush him to the ER if he has any complications. She also is not doing so good health wise, & she recently found out she has fibromyalgia & has had tons of doctor appts lately herself.

So basically what I'm asking for is the help to fix this situation her family is presently in.... Where she can possibly find a great deal on a compatible motor, & the money to replace the old motor or rebuild the one in the car, Or in worse case be able to replace the whole car.
