Mocha Moose Mama needs help

Please let me start by saying Thank you so much for taking a moment to read about our families Story.  Our parents have been married for 41 years and are the owners of an espresso stand in the great Wasilla Alaska. Our mother has been the designer and launcher of Mocha Moose since 1994, in 2004 she underwent brain surgery to remove a non cancerous tumor. The surgery was successful and she recovered very well. She had a few disabilities due to surgery but overall she recovered great. Several months after her brain tumor she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She has been in remission ever since. Fast forward 10 years, she was kicked off her private insurance a year ago due to the Afordable healthcare act  and the new health reform. She has not had insurance for 18 months.She is supposed to get annual tests done due to her cancer history. Things haven't been well for about a month so she went in for blood work and everything was normal, brain scan a couple days later shows mastisized tumors on her brain. Neurologist appointment is soon and we are being very hopeful. No matter what they diagnosis we are anticipating a huge medical bill & my parents do not have money for this as they are just barley making it now. I hate to see our dad so stressed out and I worry about his heart. He already has issues with that and all this added stress will not be good. Any and all donations will go straight to our moms medical bills and living expenses as dad needs to be home with her and not worrying about money or the business. These two have the biggest hearts  and have been  so supportive of our community and members. If you have ever had the chance to meet them and experience their love then you have been blessed by it.   We just want  to be able to give back to them  & take some burden off their shoulders and for them to be cared for in this time of turmoil. Please give  our mom and dad some consideration for your donation, it would mean the world to all of us.
