My Mother is currently fighting cancer quietly and just had another surgery last Friday on November 1st. She is still facing Radiation and just went through excruciating pain and is in bed a lot during this time. She was using an I pad I gave her but it's old and Apple did an update and now she cannot use the app that helps her to learn Hebrew.
This is what she did to fill her time while ill and now there is no way to fix it because the I pad is too old. She is on a fixed income and has already had to pay a lot of deductibles and co pays for her treatment. Myself and my siblings do have have the funds. My 4 year old was diagnosed with Autism last February and I cannot leave to go see her in Florida because it is hard to travel with my son and I do not have the money to get there and cannot risk us getting her sick either so we have to where to stay if we go visit. If I cannot be there I at least would feel better knowing she had a new I pad that would be able to last her a while an not become outdated quickly. She is also into photography and was a professional in that field but had to step away during this time. She donated her time and skill a lot to help others and would never ask for a "hand out," so I am asking for her. My younger siblings are taking care of her now in Florida. My sister a Diabetic since 2 who is my Mothers full time care taker cannot work and my brother whom is also Autistic doesn't either hence they also do not have the funds.
My Mom is such a kind and caring person who always helped us and others when she could. She is too humble and meek to ever ask for anything. I hope she doesn't get mad I did this or feel embarrassed.
This I pad could help fill her time in bed and in pain distracting her mind while also helping her to learn another language and hopefully one day when she is fully recovered could teach others this beautiful language.
