Michelle's cancer battle

This is my mom Michelle Robinson.   She is a fighter, fierce, has a heart of gold, and is my best friend.  She recently started a new round of chemo for lung cancer.   She puts on a brave face and is still trying to work full time.  The reality is nobody really knows how much pain she deals with every day. She is so exhausted and completely overwhelmed right now.   Just in case cancer wasn't hard enough there is also the financial aspect that is growing. The bills have just started coming in.  She has to  meet her deductible which is $6000.00. She faces many trips to Huntsman which means a lot of extra cost in gas, she has to buy a lot of over-the-counter things like compression socks, heart monitor, and medicines that aren't covered by her insurance, etc.  Even worse is the fact that the heating/cooling system for her home with her husband is so old they can't get parts for it.  They just had to pay $1000 for a band aid fix but were also told that wouldn't last long and they need to replace the entire system.   Those bids have come back at $13,500  

If you can't donate, it is okay, I understand how hard this time of year is especially during a pandemic.  I am just hoping to give my mom a Christmas miracle and be able to lift her spirits so she can be able to fight the way I need her to.
