F*#k CANCER!!!!

As you all know, my mother has been fighting that nasty / ugly "C" word called... CANCER!! Not only is she fighting cancer but she's fighting the worse type of cancer; Lymphoma Cancer. She is half way through the battle and although she's very strong and fearless, she is still facing some challenging bumps on this road to success. My mother is a sweet, caring, out going person, but her best trait is she's a strong believer in Jesus Christ. Believe me she deserves to beat CANCER'S ASS. I know everyday she is fighting for me (her only child), her grandchildren, her husband and step daughters. She has embraced dearly and of course all of our loving family and friends. Although this seems out of my character, there is nothing that will stop me from trying to help my mother and support her positvely in any way I can imagine possible.

My mother now has to stay in seattle for a Stem  Cell Transplant. This will all be done in a course of 3-4 months. Throughout this time she is going to be stationed in Seattle where she will have to get an apartment near the hospital. She is going to be going through a series of tests, blood samples, screenings, and most difficultly, she will be undergoing chemo and radiation for the second time around. The worst part is that this is going to be worse then her previous treatment. The side affects will be stronger and it will make her weaker then the last. She will lose her hair all over again, which she was so happy to finally be growing back. This process is discouraging, especially because we thouhgt we had already gone through the tough parts.

This fight is very expensive and so is the 3-4 month stay in Seattle. She will start the second part of this battle next month July 16th, 2016.  I know that we have a great support system behind us, thus the reason I am setting up this Go Fund Me!! Your help will be greatly appreciated. Please if you can, anything will help including prayers. I know this is going to lift her spirits and brighten her cloudy days. I thank you guys from the bottom of my heart in advance!! God bless you all and thank you sooo much for your donation. #fuckcancer

Love Always,
