Fast forward two years and our family was hit with more bad news, my mom was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer and is currently in treatment. When she was first diagnosed they did a needle core biposy followed by a core biposy lupectomy, the doctors removed a 25 CM tumor from her breast as well as 5 lymph nodes, including the sentinel lymph. She recently finished her first round of chemotherapy and will be starting daily radiation in Portland in two weeks. My younger sister Vanessa, was also just diagnosed with myotonic dystrophy a genetic disorder which causes your muscles to degenerate over time and causes developmental delays. Between my step dad being medically retired, my mom going through treatment and my sister having regular doctors appointments and testing in Portland my family is struggling to make ends meet.
It feels as though they are drowning in house payments, electric bills, gas money to get to appointments, and they are a 4 person household living off of a single income. I would like to try to raise money to offset the cost of their basic needs and medical expenses. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this. And if you are unable to help, please consider taking the time to share this and that will help more than you know.
