My name is Katia and I have been living in the USA for 27 years. My mother lives in Volta Redonda, Brazil in the State of Rio De Janeiro. My mother was diagnosed with ALS in September 2013. I was able to take family medical leave in October 2013 and November 2014 to help care for my mother. I have always managed to find the money to keep in touch, but after 2 years and the extra expenses of helping my Mom, it has been very difficult financially. Having a paid airline ticket will be a extremely helpful to our family. My mother is in need of a family member to stay with her and manage her affairs as her disease progresses. Since I only have one other sibling, this assistance would go a long way to help support my mother.
