Complete family medical situation hitting proverbial poop fan...

Where do we turn? Things have gone bazonkers on us... Two weeks ago my 83 year old mom called me with a racing heart.

How to fix large patches of scar tissue?

Can any of this be fixed medically/surgically if I save up the money? What about the purple/red marks crisscrossing my flesh? I know that laser surgery is possible for single scars, and to remove tattoos, but as for improving skin quality, I have no idea. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
