Support Mom's fight against cancer!

When Mom was admitted into the hospital in June, we all thought she was going to be diagnosed with pneumonia, not  STAGE IV LUNG CANCER.  All of our lives were turned upside down at that moment, especially Mom's.   Our always-on-the-go Mom, was now on oxygen and very limited to what she could physically do.   Aditionally, our always hardworking Dad lost his job this past spring.  

It was the perfect storm: cancer and job loss. 

I am hoping that all of our family and friends can help my parents with the financial demands resulting from our Mom's illness. The expenses and bills are relentless and it is difficult to keep a household intact when income is limited.

I believe in the power of prayer, and the support of family and friends.  Mom was just talking about how she has saved every single card she has received and how it means so much to her. Recently, she said to me, that she doesnt believe in small gifts, because every gift is BIG to her.  I also wanted to mention, that my mom said she didnt want to burden her family and friends with a fundraiser, as she feels everyone is struggling in some way.  I believe she is wrong, and if people are able to, they will help.  Thank you ALL for reading this! I will try to update regularly!  Much love!! -Dana
