She underwent surgery March 8, 2018 to have a Hysterectomy. But, with further testing she was diagnosed with Stage 1 Clear Cell Ovarian Cancer. This cancer is a very rare and very aggressive form of cancer. As a result, she had to have another surgery on April 18, 2018 to remove her right ovary, during this surgery they nicked her bowel which resulted in a 9 day hospital stay. She will be having to undergo 6 months of chemotherapy starting within the next few weeks.
She doesn’t have medical insurance so, she is responsible for all her medical expenses and with the everyday necessities of life, money is getting tighter and tighter.
My mom is one of the strongest, most selfless people I have ever known and is always there to give her love and support. My mom is a loving Mother and Grandmother and has always been there for everyone.
Now, it's time that we send back some of that love and support to Michelle. Anything you can donate will be truly appreciated. Everything we can do to help and surround her with love is of the most important, so she can focus on beating this thing. Please spread the word. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
