My mom is suffering from liver and kidney failure, C.O.P.D., and a softball size tumor intertwined in her spinal cord that causes her nonstop pain due to its location and the fact it has eroded quite a bit of her sacrum - not to mention pushes into her sciatic which makes her have RLS and raidating pain. She is on palliative care for now, with hospice being her next step. 
Her insurance decided she can't have a hospital bed right now because even though she's almost immobile from the waist down, that she doesn't have bed sores so she doesn't need one. Pretty much because I take good care of her she's ineligible. If someone less precautious took care of her she'd have one.
The not having a hospital bed, and not having a place to rest comfortably was going to be solved by her couch, a reclining one that she could rest on, but honestly the steroids and the saline IV's have put her 50 lbs heavier and getting her to her commode/ect is killing my body. 
The chair she needs is one that not only reclines for comfort, but sort of lifts her up a bit as its closing, which helps me sooo much. It's pricy, but its the least expensive option that will work for her and my knee at the same time.
We had saved a few hundred dollars, but the insurance also declined her rollator chair that'd get her to the shower, and special wedges that hold her on her side so she doesnt get sores. 
I made the decision to ask friends for assistance with a heavy heart, but without a chair like this I'm not sure how long she'll be able to stay home. I have a torn atl and atfl and just cant lift like 200lbs by myself around the obstacles a couch creates.
Please help me help my mother. If I could work to get her these items I would, but she needs me too much.
The price includes GFM's fee and the gel cushion with optional leg rest (needed for nerve relief) and table top (+70), but would be amazing to use when feeding her. 
Thank you and God Bless,
Alicia 'Ryann' Harris
