Mom has been battling lung cancer (along with fibrolyalgia, neuropathy, diabetes...) for three years now. Despite fighting it off all this time, it has now spread to her ribs, causing her additional tissue, nerve and bone pain. The doctors have told us that additional chemo would only cause her body more harm, so she has been moved to home hospice care. We're both very glad that we can get this kind of care and allow her to still be at home. The hospice staff is currently working to manage her pain, and she's already feeling much better than she was in the hospital.
To those of you who are able to help in this way: Mom and I are genuinely humbled by your generosity. We're both used to being the ones who are helping others. In fact, it makes us much more comfortable to be on the giving end than the receiving. But, as I've been told many times in the past week: let the people who want to help give you the help you need. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
To those of you who are not able to help in this way: we know that everyone is struggling right now. Your thoughts and prayers mean everything to us, and we thank you for having us in them.

L'Chaim. To life. Merci and thank you.
Martha and Jason
