My mom, Thuan, has recently been diagnosed with Stage III Lung cancer. It is aggressive and has spread to her brain. She never asks for help, so me and my sister are.
My mom has been through things many of us cannot even imagine. She grew up during the time of the Vietnam War and miraculously escaped. Along with her family, she forged a new life in America in her early twenties. She learned a completely new language and put herself through college.
She is 56 now, and has not stopped working her entire life. For the past 18 years, my parents have worked and owned a convenient store. It is open 7 days a week. They work 15 hr. days and never complain. My dad, who is 62, is now handling the store on his own (with help from my sister and I) while my mom is in California getting treatment. The store is a large task to take on all by himself, and I'm afraid he won't be able to hold onto it for much longer.
The medical bills are coming in fast and in large quantities. We have amazing support, but we need help.
My mom may never ask for help, but I will.
Thank you for all of your support, thoughts, and prayers!
