Help our Mom - Medical

Raised by 81 people in 63 months
On May 22nd we received the heartbreaking news that our mother, Meg Tworkowski, has been diagnosed with endometrial cancer. Endometrial cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the uterus. The treatment at this stage is a hysterectomy, which will take place on June 11th and we are very optimistic this surgery will remove all the cancer.

To make matters a little more complicated our mother just found out that she has an abscessed tooth which must be addressed prior to the hysterectomy; as an infection cannot be present while undergoing a major surgery. The solution to the infection is costly dental work to remove and then replace the tooth.

In an effort to ease our mother’s stress of being out of work for six weeks and the influx of medical and dental expenses, we would like to request your support. Our mother has shown unconditional love and support throughout our lives and we want to do the same for her during this difficult time by making this process as comfortable and stress-free as it possibly can. If you know our mother you know that she is selfless to a fault; she is not a person that would ever ask for help, which is why we feel the need to take this initiative. Any assistance, large or small, prayers, act of service or financial, is appreciated and means more to our family than we can express.

Thank you for taking the time to read and share.

Love,
Chelsea, Max, Spencer, Owen, Megan, and Charlie

Final update from Meg:Best results that we could ask for! The surgeon confirmed the cancer is Stage 1A Grade 1, no sign of it anywhere beyond my uterus. No need for chemo or radiation I'll visit the oncologist every 3 months for the first year and then 3 times a year for 5 years to monitor for reoccurrence, which is only 2 to 3% chance. Thank you to everyone for your prayers for health and wellness. Let the recovery begin!

From Meg: "Surgery went really well and my surgeon believes the cancer is contained in the uterus. I love my uterus! It gave me 4 beautiful children and now it has rid me of these awful cells. Recovery is interesting. I am so fortunate to have great support from family and friends. Our table has been filled with a home cooked meal every night and flowers have filled the house. Phone calls, cards, and texts keep me knowing that I have the support of many. My Mom was able to extend her graduation celebration visit for pre-op and post-op duties. So comforting! We never grow out of feeling better when Mom is around :) John and the boys are so helpful and keep me in good spirits. The NBA playoffs and World Cup keep the house active and loud, no room for worries or sadness. I did walk around the block yesterday and that felt like an olympic lap, so every day is a bit better than the one before. Chelsea will be home for a week on Wednesday and that will be great! I see the oncologist on Thursday and am anxious to discuss the results. Looking forward to a good report. Thanks again everyone for your support and encouragement, it means so much."

Meg is home! She wanted me to report that all is well. The initial report from the visual opinion is that the cancer is contained. We are hoping that this is confirmed by the pathology.

Happiness!! Meg Perry Tworkowski is out of surgery and into recovery. The procedure went well and there is NO sign of cancer! A pathology will still need to confirm but it looks like she will be just fine. Thanks to all so much for your support. My family and I are beyond grateful!!!

Surely the words "thank you" will fail to convey the gratitude I have for the generosity of everyone who has contributed. My fears are calmed by your kind words and our financial burden is eased by each donation. I have never felt so loved and so blessed. John, the kids, and I are so thankful for each one of you. Looking forward to a positive outcome after surgery on Monday 6/6 and many happy days to follow. Love, Meg
