Mama's Journey

$4,205 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 70 people in 4 months
As most of you know, our mom has been diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer and has spread to all her lymph nodes. In recent events, she has been admitted to Upstate Hospital due to a severe headache. After many MRI's and CAT scans, we have found out the cancer has spread to her brain. 

Our parents have been together over 50 years and the struggles they have endured together are struggles most have not in their lifetime. Their love for Brennan Beach started 35 years ago and has been a huge part of their life. Our dad is a Vietnam veteran; while fighting in the war he stepped on a landmine and his own health has been detrimental including a punctured spleen, multiple heart attacks, bypasses, PTSD, etc. which causes for a fixed income. She has cared for dad, her siblings, 3 kids and our entire family since she was 18 and she I s the true definition of a back bone to our close-knit family. If you have seen us around, we come in a pack.

The money will be used for funeral arrangements, medical costs, and hospice care.
 
Mom always knows the answers, the right thing to do and whether you agree or not, her decision is the decision that will go forward. We have always had extra people in our home growing up that needed help and now she is on the other end of that. Please take a moment to donate whatever you can, as it is appreciated in so many ways. We plan to keep you all updated as much as we can and again, appreciate your love, kindness and prayers.

Today is a day that mom celebrated every year, On top of how proud she was of my father being a Vietnam veteran, it's also Rayette and Nick's wedding anniversary. We think maybe she was waiting for this day to pass and she did so at 2:30am. We are gonna miss her so very much and know she's now our angel and will celebrate from heaven now. WE LOVE YOU MOM!

Update: another dreaded one
Today we decided to start comfort care, as much as we hate to, it's the right thing. Mom has been struggling to sleep, eat, talk, she's extremely anxious and exhausted mentally and physically so it's about making the end of her life as comfortable and as painless as possible. I don't know what else to say...we're all heartbroken that her life is ending so abruptly at her young 66 years of age. She had a whole lot she still planned on doing, fall activities, Halloween, Christmas train ride, everything she loved to do as a family, it will be a very difficult fall, winter season, every season for us all without her around to do these things. My father is trying so hard to be strong and be there for us but his heart is hurting right now and we are taking care of him the best we can. ❤️️

Update:
Mom has had 5 aggressive radiation treatments and is now done. The hope was to get her ok enough to go home and comfortable, she was doing OK Sunday & Monday but has since declined so she will be staying a few more days, it's just impossible to move her. She isn't able to walk on her own and had a fall the other day from trying so she needs 24 hr care. The worst part is watching her want to live so badly and suffering through this. There's so much more but I won't go into details, just know that your thoughts & prayers are very much appreciated ❤️

I know a lot of people don't like to donate but please consider, my father will need some financial help to bounce back from this and to help cover funeral expenses. He's already worried and stressed and I'd like to alleviate some of that for him. If you'd like to send cards you can send them to any one of us and we'll make sure she gets them. Just pm or text
