Linda is my wonderful mother and is a warm, compassionate and giving grandmother.  Thirty-four years ago Linda was hit by a drunk driver and is a paraplegic.  Last year she was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. After her surgery she had to stay in the hospital for a month because she uses her arms to move herself and the doctor directed her not to use her left arm. Unfortunately, this caused her to get a deep pressure sore which caused a bone infection. This significantly delayed Linda’s chemotherapy and radiation treatment due to the fact that you cannot have open wounds during chemo.  After a long recovery period the breast cancer had metastasized to the skin and bones. The doctors started very high doses of chemo in hopes to stop the spread of the cancer. Once again she presented with pressure sores and now has stage 4 breast cancer.  Currently the only way to relieve Linda’s pressure sores is to surgically repair them.  In order to decrease the number of surgeries related to pressure sores; there is a bed used in the hospital called a Clinitron bed. Unfortunately, insurance does not cover the cost of this bed for home use.  This bed would greatly improve my mother’s cancer treatment plan as well as reducing the amount of infections. Please consider donating so that Linda can continue her cancer treatment without interruptions. At this point in time Linda has had multiple surgeries is a short period of time and needs nursing home home care on a daily basis. Your kind donations will help pay for the four days of  the week insurance will not cover.

Just a quick a brief update today. Linda's health is quickly declining. She has days when she cannot remember her children's names and has hallucinations. She is also to weak to speak loud enough to hear her most days. Our next goal for Linda is to make sure she has a wonderful ceremony and memorial service when she passes. If you can help donate to Linda's funeral expenses the family would greatly appreciate any amount.

Linda is in St. PETER'S Hospital Hospice Inn room 5439 for all those who wish to visit all are welcome and encouraged to come. Linda's strength and focused lucid moments are greatly decreasing. Thank you for everyone's love and support. Linda is truly an amazing woman who has not only raised her own children but has taken in many others that were struggling and always helped people in need even though she had daily struggles and pain herself living as a paraplegic but she never complained. She is the epitome of a wonder woman. Courage, strength, compassion and vision. I love my mom for everything she has taught me about love and life.
