A Wedding for My Mother to Attend

My mother was diagnosed for the second time 4 days after my college graduation on May 6, 2014 with Central Nervous System Lymphoma. Shortly after her diagnosis, she has lost most of her function in her left side of her body and can not form sentences at this time. The prognosis is poor, and the doctors have suggested hospice care for her.

I was a bride-to-be in December, but now I am moving my wedding up to July 6. My mom is going to get 4 weeks of radiation in an attempt to extend what little life she has. She will be on hospice care after July 6 to enjoy the time she has left with our family. My dream since I was a little girl was to have my mom at my wedding, so I moved the December wedding to July 6. I am doing everything in my power to keep that dream so that she can live to see me get married. Because of the tight timeline and the unexpected medical costs for my mom, I am in need of assistance to accomplish this wedding. Please if you feel it in your heart to donate, I would forever be grateful.
