If you sell your PS3 the first thing to do is to deactivate it, you can do this via the XMB menu.

With regard to any DLC & game downloads you would be able to re-download those after logging in with the same PSN ID you use now & going to your download list, be advised though that movies & songs are one-time only downloads so unless you're able to back these up to a seperate source you will lose these, trophies are safe.

Photographs you will have to try get off you PS3 & back onto another form or storage, you can back-up your saved game data to a USB stick or another flash drive of some sort.

I hope the above helps, come back if we can assist you further.

You're welcome, good luck to you & your family.

EDIT: I had a thought, I don't know how much you're expecting to get for your PS3 & games etc, & if it's an amount that's really going to make a difference to you & your family then great, I say go for it, however if it's really only going to be a short term kind of fix thing, then I'd say try to see if you can find another way to maybe hang onto the PS3 & use it as a family game center type thing to enjoy together as a family say once a week during the next few months, it may help you to come together more as a family during what will obviously be a trying time for you all.

Once again good luck to you.
