Red from Kentucky

This is my mom Betty! And I am her caregiver. She had a stroke a year ago so she needs somebody to help her out with caring for herself - medications, doctor's appointments, therapy and bringing her wherever she wants to go.

She is gaining full use of the left side of her body little by little. It's very nice to have a lot of help from friends and family, financially, physically and spiritually.

We are hoping for a fast recovery soon so that she can go back to what she wants to do which is volunteering at our local hospital.
