For Our Mom Battling Pancreatic Cancer

$305 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 10 people in 42 months

My Mom is one of the strongest women my sister and I know. And being stricken with pancreatic cancer has been devastating to her and our whole family. Mom is loved by everyone, especially her six grandchildren, she has touched so many people's lives in so many ways. As a Mom she has done so much for my sister and I and we want to give back to her in any way we can. Unfortunately financially is not one of them. We are trying to hold a benefit bingo in my Mom's honor to raise money for anything needed from medical to everyday needs to a bucket list wish. With this diagnosis her and our step-dad have lost an income because she can no longer work. Mom was a school bus driver for 20 years and her kids love her. From elementary to high school. She is in so much pain and even deadening a nerve in her back has not helped much. She has had set back after set back. She has finally gotten rid of an infection and can finally start chemo in another week. We are trying to raise money to help with creating our benefit bingo because we just don't have the money to do it on our own. And if possible we want to fulfill her bucket list wish of going to Disney World where she has never been able to go.  We are donating all proceeds to our Mom from the bingo and a portion to a pancreatic organization. We have so much interest it's amazing and we can't wait to do this in her honor. Our Mom is unaware of what we are doing for her.

Mom had her first chemo Thursday and did well with it. Hoping the tumor shrinks more so her pain levels will go down. She is suffering with so much pain! Please keep praying!

I spoke with Angie Saturday night at PapaJoe's--send me information regarding the fundraiser to pass onto a reporter for their consideration (shiela.johnson@carrollcountytimes.com) and visit www.carrollcountytimes.com/calendar and post the bingo on our free online calendar asap--it will appear online and as long as you post it quick enough, we use the online calendar to populate our free print calendars. You can also contact Advertising at 410-848-4400, ext. 5500 to talk to them about advertising--they do something called Community Events and Weekend Happenings that are a little less costly than a paid display advertisement. Hopefully that will help :) Best of luck and give your mom a hug for me.
