Can't pay off Credit card

My Mother is 79 yrs old and has a single credit card with a balance of $6650.00. Even thought she has always paid and paid on time they kept increasing her int. rate. Now her pmt is $189 mo. Since her husband died last year her income is now only $800mo. She tried asking them for relief with no help offered. She has literally nothing, except for a car (paid off) worth $4300. She is worried if she just doesn't pay the card that they can come and take her car.

Is this correct and what should she do?

She will be moving to New Orleans with my sister in Nov 2004.
