Raising money for our mom

We honestly don't know where to begin but our mom was and will always be the strongest person we knew. She never complained and always if she was hurting or stressed she never let it show, we have learned so much from our mom and she will always be in our hearts. Our mom has struggled throughout her whole life being a single mom and she did it with pride, she never asked for help, she just did it and made miracles happen from the little she did have. It began in 2011 when she first found out she had breast cancer, and she fought with all her might and she was put through hell and back but being the strong person she is, she was determined to beat it and she did. May 2017 would have been her 5 year mark and she would have been in remission, we were all looking forward to celebrating her success but that's when it took a turn for the worse, in April 2017 she put her life on hold to be there by our brothers side as he was battling for his life from a horrible motorcycle accident, when she collapsed one day and ends up admitted in the hospital while our brother was still in critical condition, even as she is laying there in a hospital bed she wasn't worried about her, all she wanted was to be there for our brother. Turned out cancer was back with a vengeance, entered her lymph nodes and spread to other organs and was spreading so quickly she had to make the hardest decision fast in order for her to once again fight for her life. Finally she decided she has too much too fight for , her kids, grandkids, and family who all love her dearly and so when doctors only gave her 3 months she persued chemo and fought like a champ until it all became too much for her body to handle, she fought with all her might from April and only having 3 months to live until now when she ends up in the hospital needing a simple procedure as the doctors say on her heart. Turns out not such a simple procedure after all, it was a procedure who took our mom away from us, and though we will never know if it would of been better without it, we are left to deal with the fact that our mom is gone and never coming back. She put up one heck of a fight but it is now time that we need to lay her to rest in paradise with the Good Lord at the young age of 49, we were all planning her big 50th and she was so excited to finally have all her family in one place to celebrate her 50 years of life and instead we are now planning her services to say our goodbyes and celebrate the time we were so lucky to have with our beautiful mom. As hard as this is on all of us to let our mom go, we know she is now resting and happy and free of pain. Our mom has always put her kids first and we were the most important part of her life. She did whatever she needed to do to make sure we all had what we needed and she did it on her own. She was always there for anyone who ever needed anything, even though she didn't have much to offer but her heart and her heart was enough to make anyone feel loved and comforted. She offered a place to stay to those in need and she was always making meals out of scraps which we have no idea how she did but she did it. She always took care of everyone and now it's our turn to take care of her and lay her to rest the way she wanted to. She is a Survivor and she always be remembered as a survivor. We are no where near our goal of 6000 and time is moving fast, wish we could pause time so we can process all that is happening but unfortunately it doesn't work that way. We are trying to raise money to give our mom her final goodbye and allow all her family and friends to come and pay their respects and give our mom the proper good bye she deserves. We ask family and friends to please come together for us and our mommy, we need your help to send our mommy back home the way she wished to be sent. Anything will be appreciated and if you can please pass this message on to anyone who would be willing to help. Thank you in advance and we appreciate all you can do to help us out. RIP mommy, you will never be forgotten, you have touched so many hearts and made a major impact on our lives. We will miss you forever and we love you very much. And your grandkids will always know and remember that Nana loved them. January 25th 1968 to January 11th 2018.
