I am a 75 y.o. widowed Senior living in Georgetown, Tx. I have recently completed radiation treatment for a brain tumor diagnosed in Nov. 2019. I am well for now but could use some assistance please. I live in an apartment and my daughter-in-law helps me daily. I am getting by on a fixed income. Any help would be greatly appreciated. God bless, Paulette Jensen
