A Fight for Mom #TeamAugusta

A corporate professional, a daughter, a sister, a mother, a grandmother and a woman of faith are just a few words to describe who my mom is. Days pass by and as a whole we really take for granted those closest to us. We just live assuming that they will always be there...always strong and always healthy. So you can imagine how hard the news hit me when my mom called and the word cancer rolled off her tongue. My mom is an amazing woman who has overcome a lot including attaining her college education as single mom of 6 "adventurous" children and then went onto a corporate position with the Dept of Transportation (aka CalTrans). She has never taken no for an answer, she is always smiling and always encouraging. She is an active mother and grandmother and now she is facing perhaps the biggest fight of her life...my mom, Augusta Solano, is facing a diagnosis of cancer. To be more specific, she has not 1 but 2 brain tumors. Her condition is called Meningiomas. Her condition is inoperable due to location. The tumors are not encapsulated, therefore, the tumors are intertwined with her nerves. We are not taking this lying down. She may not be a candidate for surgery, but she is pursuing another method of treatment that her insurance will not cover. The total cost of the treatment needed is $14, 022. This covers the cost of 2 treatments per week of IV therapies consisting of ozone therapy with a high dose of glutathiomine and other drips. This treatment is for 12 weeks.  To those who can financially contribute to fight this fight with my mom, thank you and to those who can't we are asking you to please stand with us in prayer. Thank you for your consideration and time! #TeamAugusta #JustCureIt
