Virginia made the decision not to have the Chemo because she knew her children would be scared of her and because she wanted to be with them as much as possible. The closest place she could do this is 3 hours away so that would also impact her ability to see the children. At that point we came home and broke the news to our family. Virginia has chosen not to let her children know that she is terminal until she has to.
We are trying to get Virginia to the Gerson Institute in Mexico for treatment. It is an alternative approach with the focus being more natural and holistic than Chemo. The cost for this is around 25 thousand U.S. dollars. The Gerson institute has indicated that clients need to be accompanied as this person will be helping Virginia through the process and would be trained in her dietary needs etc. The companion is included in the price.
We are holding bake sales, silent auctions and a dance to try to raise enough funds to send her.
As a mother there is a part of me that feels almost panicked due to the time this is taking. We were told by the Dr that Virginia has 2 months to at most a year left.
This site was given to me by a family friend so I decided to apply.
My baby is so young and has so much she needs to do yet in her life . This is a struggle for all of us and we would appreciate any help or encouragement that can be offered.
