Lori Weber's 2nd Fight with Cancer

My wife Lori Weber had breast cancer in 2015, she had a double mastectomy with reconstruction. In early 2016 she was signed off with a clean bill of health, 100% cancer free and the doctor told her to get out of his office, "I never want to see you again, you are healthy"

Over the last few months, Lori has had a lower back pain that has been getting quickly worse, after numerous doctor visits no one could explain her pain. 

On Thanksgiving morning of this year, 2017. I was finishing up work in Savannah, GA. Our 11-year-old daughter calls me at 6:30 am crying that mommy needs me home as soon as possible. She was unable to get out of bed and needed to go to the ER. I rushed home and we went to the ER. 

Lori was admitted to the hospital Thanksgiving evening, an ultrasound was showing lesions on her ribs, pelvis, and spine. After 4 days of tests, MRI's and a biopsy we were told that her breast cancer had come back and it had entered her bones and now she had stage 4 bone cancer. The cancer is treatable but not curable with chemo. We are told that if the chemo gets her into remission it will eventually keep coming back until it finally takes her life. Once cancer is in the bones it cannot be cured.

Lori was riding a skateboard on Nov 7, 2017. Today Dec 6, 2017, one month later she needs a wheelchair to get around the house. She is constantly on pain medication just to get through the day.

Today we sit in her first of 6 chemo treatments over the next 6 months.  

We are a family of 4. Our son 9 and daughter 11 are heartbroken and trying to make sense of why their mother that was a very active mom and would go skateboarding, bike riding, and surfing with them cannot even walk anymore.  

We have some overwhelming medical expenses as well as general care costs that we can use any help with.  Lori cannot walk on her own much less go to work. I am very limited on work that I can do as she needs 24-hour care at this point.  

We thank you for any kind help that we can get.
