Helping Mom

Hello everyone! 

Mom, For all you've done, for all you do, this is something simple i'm glad to do.  I love you mom!32970646_1537142545197691_r.jpeg


I am not exactly sure how to start off, so I will just start. 
My name is Marilynn and I am raising money for my mom who has stage 4 metastasized breast cancer. 7 years ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer and was told later on that she had beat it after chemo and surgeries. My mom is a Ram and bounced back and relocated from New Jersey here to Florida's beautiful panhandle area. Just recently I moved here with my family to be closer to my mom and see what this amazing place has to offer. So my husband and I did, we packed up and moved here. My moms runs a small business cleaning vacation rentals and needed my help here. Shortly after moving here in January of this year, my mom on Mothers Day went to the hospital because she was not feeling well, the doctors ended up running test's on her and the heartbreak began, she was re-diagnosed with stage 4 cancer that has metastasized into her abdominal area. The doctors at the Fort Walton Medical Center were not equipped to help my mom so she was transferred to Emory in Atlanta to continue her care. while there she underwent a lot of invasive procedures and testing. She had a large tumor in her abdomen that did not allow here to eat for 3 months and everything she tried to consume came right back up. She went through Chemo again, and at this time she had gone into renal failure where he kidneys were only functioning at 4%. After her chemo, the blockage had shrunk miraculously and doctors sent her back home to us. The other tumors in her body remained the same and had not grown larger the last time they tested. My mom is the strongest person I know, and she continues to go out into the work field and clean and scrub these properties that she maintains because that is just the work ethic and pride she had in her work. This is her income, and its her only one. I want to help lift some of the burden off of her anyway I can. Doctors told her she has less than a year to live, she is 54 and has not lived out all her dreams yet, this to me is heartbreaking. I want her to be able to Enjoy the time she has left and not worry about finances. I help her as much as I can and always will, she is my mom and I love her dearly, I want her to be care-free for her time left here. She is so worried about finances and this is why she continues to work even when she is up all night throwing up because the tumor in her abdomen has come back. My plea to anybody who is reading is that you help if you can. I want to ease my moms mind and aching body.

Thank you in advance,
Marilynn Garcia
