My wife Mona has had cancer for years. Her cancer made her too sick to work by the Spring of 2014. Her cancer was first diagnosed in the fall of 2014 as uterine cancer. In early 2015 she finally got surgery to remove the cancer, which consisted of a full hysterectomy. She was in the hospital for weeks following some complications from surgery, which required her to be on dialysis for a few weeks. Radiation followed for the next few months. We went about a year after that thinking she was cancer free, recovering from her treatment. We moved to her hometown of Waverly, NY, since we had lost our house in Mexico, NY anyway, and it was about time we lived near her family and friends. She was not cancer free though. The cancer metastacized first to her lungs, which gave her a diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer, a few months later it metastacized to her brain, which we discovered because of the seizures it caused when it bled into her brain.+ Read More
Today we hold the memorial gathering in her honor, it starts in a couple of hours.
Sadly I am forced to increase the funding goal to help cover the cost of funeral expenses. We truly appreciated all of the help that everyone has given us over these last couple of months.
