I am hoping for some financial help so that I can spend as much time with my mum in the last stages of her life. I live over 200 miles away from my mum who has Motor Neurone Disease. This has meant a huge financial burden on my family as I have to either spend money on expensive rail fares or rely on my husband taking unpaid leave so that he can drive us to and from London and look after our children.
My mum has been and still is the most amazing mum I could ever ask for. She can no longer walk, talk or eat and has to have assistance with her breathing yet she still manages to show more care for us than herself. She has always supported me and cared for me in whatever I have done. I now want to be able to do the same for her
I want to be able to spend more time with my mum with out worrying about how I'm going to afford to do it. My travel costs are approximately £100 each week, this is for a return ticket to London each week plus my expenses to get to the hospital each day when I am in London. Every little will help and any money that is not used for travel costs will be donated to the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
