broken MB owner needs help for brake job

Hello all
I am a broken MB 300D owner: my leg is broke and I can't do work on my car, yet. I've been working a little and using my car a little. I just needed to replace both axles! Now I need to replace the brake system!I have frozen rear calipers and shot front rotors/pads. I would usually undertake the brakes by myself but being somewhat handicapped and definitely unable to spend $900.00 in labor on top of the 400.00 in parts. I am asking for help from the community.
Is there anyone who can help a fellow MB'er out? I need to replace rear calipers, rotors, pads,hoses, e-brake cables, center adjuster, front rotors, hoses, bearings, pads, sensors. I am able to work, but... just not standing up putting pressure on my leg.
I appreciate the responses in advance, I hate to sound like an internet beggar, but any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I can drive the car as far as needed, prefer 1.5 hr or less.
Ben
