Kemp Family Cancer Expenses

To the people who are reading my story.  My name is Jessica and I am looking to fundraise some money to help my parents out with their bills at a very heartbreaking time as my mom is loosing her battle of fighting cancer.  My mom means the world to me so I am hoping you will want to help us in someway.  My mom was diagnosed 2 years at a young age of 55 with Stage 4 Colin cancer that has spread into her lung, liver and also into her bones.  My mom has under went a lot of different chemotherapy treatments to try hard to kick cancers rearend.  She recieved most of her treatments intravenous threw her port long days sitting in the Cancer office receiving her treatments.  Unable to drive her self a family member always brought her and most of the time spend the day with her at the chemo office for the 4-5 hours it took for her to get her full treatment.  About 3 months ago the doctor had decided that the intravenous treatments were no longer working and this aggressive cancer was growing and he had to seek and try something else out.  My mom was put on a powerful chemotherapy pill in hopes that we could get the cancer into remission.  In the past 2 years of mom undergoing the treatments her cancer only went into remission one time and only for about 1 month.  2 weeks ago we went back into the doctors after having a catscan and hoping and praying the chemotherapy pills were working unfortunetly they are not working and my moms cancer had yet grown again.  At this time there are no other treatments that are available for my mother to take and try to fight for her life.  At this time the doctor's have not gave my mom a timeframe to survive,  but in the past 2 weeks my mom has really gone down hill.  Most of the time sleeps the day away. Is given pain medicine intravenous threw the day to keep her as comfortable as possible.  This news has really broken our hearts this is the reason i am reaching out for help for my parents.  My dad has taken a unpaid leave from his work in order to be home with mom.  She needs round the clock care and can't be left unsupervised.  My parents have 1 car payment and a truck payment, rent, grocery bill, and household bills to pay.  I am really hoping that all the people that take the time to read my story will be willing to help out. Even $5.00 is a awesome help.  Thank you for taking the time to read my story and to consider us.  Please please help my parents out. We will all be so thankful and relieved for them to get some help.  Thank you from the Kemp Family.
