Unhappy I want to help my friend.

My name is Monica and I have a good friend who has been diagnosed with ALS last year, her name is Dinorah she is 50 years old and I'm looking for somebody to help me with donations of the equipment and supplies she may need, she's already needing the suction machine. The problem is that she lives in Mexico, she used to work at her own little food bussines, but now that her health is being decreasing so fast she can't work anymore. that is why I'm looking for somebody to help. Thank you very much any kind of advice is very welcome.

Try looking for things on Craigs list. Sometimes you can find things there and also you can post for items wanted.
