Off Work With Terminally Ill Mom

First let me say that I have never asked anyone for money. I am a registered nurse and am employed. However, two years ago my 82 year old mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, and 3 months ago we learned that even after chemo and radiation--- the cancer has spread to her lungs and bones. She is now to the point where she needs someone to assist with daily activities(bathing,food prep,etc). Her Dr. has completed paperwork for me to be on family medical leave, but I have to take it without pay. I am continuing to work when i can and when I don't have to take her to her appts.(65 miles from my house). The reduction in hrs.,and thus pay, is NOT MEETING MY EXPENSES. I am receiving a reduced paycheck, as I only get paid once a month, but it is not meeting all my obligations. I do have medical leave insurance, but it only covers me if I should become unable to work. She does receive home health, but only for a nurse to come do lab work and make an assessment. There are no programs which will pay for a sitter, and I am determined to comply with her request that she stay at her house. I have always tried to help others by giving when i can, adopting children off the "angel tree" at Christmas, and giving to United Way and other orgs., but now I am having to ask for help myself. I will make donations myself to others again, when my status has changed, and am able to return to my job on a full-time basis. If you can find it in your heart to help me, it will be greatly appreciated. I will be forever grateful, and look forward to the day that I can repay the favor.Thank you and God Bless!!
