Jo’s Road To Recovery

UPDATE: 10-5-18
As you all know mum was diagnosed with lung cancer back in October, a mutating cancer that at any which time could change into a different type of cancer.
Mum never had chemo, but instead had chemo like tablets to help stop the cancer.
And it did stop, for 6 months. Until we received more bad news that the cancer has now “mutated”. After mum being in hospital for fluid on the lungs this time, they discovered she now has a different type of cancer we aren’t sure what as of yet and won’t now know until next week. She will have more drugs to stop this cancer but again aren’t yet sure when.

Please pray for mum!

A beautiful mother
Amazing wife.
A friend to many.
An incredible sister.
A loving daughter.
And the best nanny on the face of this earth.

October 6th, we received the worst possible news a family could receive.

Mum was in Hospital for what we thought was a common flu.

We were wrong. Test revealed mum to be diagnosed with lung cancer .

The cancer has had some time to spread and therefore cannot be operated on as it has spread to the lymph nodes.

The terminology is called (systemic cancer) as its in the system.

This will result in mum undergoing chemotherapy

Mum starts Chemo in two weeks.
We as a family have concluded we would like to start a go fund me page too raise money towards cost and care for mums treatment. Such as
- Hospital expenses. medications and other treatments.
- House/car/mortgage expenses. (As my step father will be taking time off to care for my mother)

My mum is my rock! In fact she is everyone’s rock.
Any donation will mean so much to me and my family. You could not imagine how grateful we are. Every dollar will make a difference.
