Caroline Reuter's Cancer Journey

On August 30, 2017,  my mom was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer.  She has spent her whole life working hard with two jobs as a CNA on top of juggling taking care of her household as a leader and supporter of her 4 children and husband.  She has dedicated her whole life to being a caregiver- working endlessly to keep everyone around her happy. When she was diagnosed she knew that this would be a long journey but, has trusted God that when ever she were to go she would be okay. She wasn't left with many options but to quit her job of 7 years upon being diagnosed. In the last few weeks she seemed to be getting better and stronger and at one point the doctor said the results of chemotheraphy was indescribably miraculous as the tumors were strinking. Everyone was hopeful. Recently things have turned for the worse as her airway is almost completely blocked from the quickly strengthening tumor. Even as her body is failing she has has expressed her high worry for her family in taking on her debts. Currently  her chance of survival is slim to none. Radiation isnt working, her oxygen is low, her vitals are horrible. Today could be her last day... or tomorrow... or some time very soon. 

We are trying to raise money for any immediate funeral costs and to help pay off any remaining debt that may be left with family. Any bit of donations would help. Prayers are welcome as well.
