Help Me with my medical expenses

This is Dawn Mclendon, she is my mom. She has always been a beautiful(inside and out), smart, strong, and confident figure in my life. She has always been there for us no matter what, and I mean NO matter what. My brother and I have done and made a lot of stupid decisions over the years. She has always helped us through. Now it is our turn to help her.                                          My mom is not a complainer, so when she told me a few months ago she was concered that she didn't feel right and was fateiged all the time I was concerned. I told her to go to please go to the doctors. As usual, concerned over finances because she has no insurance she didn't go. Untill last month (May). She had been getting sick almost everyday and was not able to work. My brother went to go see her and made her go to the ER. She was at Northside Cherokee Hospital for a week. She was very dehyrated. they did bloodwork and a CT scan and determined there was a mass on her stomache near her liver. There she accumilated bills exceeding 25,000. She then had to go to a GI. He immediaetly ordered more blood work, a MRI, and a endoscopy wth bands to be done.                                                                                               With no insurance, money, or car, my mom is so depressed. It hurts to see her so brokendown. She got the bloodwork and MRI done, out of pocket. It confirmed the findings. She was supposed to get the endoscopy done Fri. 69, but she posponed it due to finances. She really needs to get it done. the mass is putting a lot of pressure on her stomache causing acid to sit at the bottom of her esophagus. She REALLY needs to get this procedure done. She is rescedualled to have it done on  Fri. 6/30. A 10,000 procedure with no insurance. But if she can pay 3,500 the day of the procedure up front they will do the dicount(go figure?) And then there is the surgury to remove the mass. That has not yet been schedualled.                                                                    I am scared for her health and wellbeing. she always says its going to be alright, but I know she is scared too. We can't let her leave us! I am pleading for your helpful donations. Your kindness and generosity will be appreciated beyond belief. Thank you for your help and prayers.                                                                                                                                                              Tiffani Mclendon,                                                                                    daughter of Dawn Mclendon
