Help our family in need. Loosing our Mom to a terminal cancer.

In 2009 my Mom, Laurie Kline was diagnosed with a cancer called Primary Peritoneal Carcinoma, a rare and terminal cancer.She is only 59 years old. She started chemotherapy as soon as she was diagnosed. Unfortunately there aren't many chemotherapy drugs available for cancers this rare. She's been receiving chemotherapy here in Missoula, MT continuously for 2 years, which is very hard on her body but yet it stalled the growth of the tumors at times. After a year of chemo treatment we were feeling pretty hopeful because the large tumor had decreased to half it's size. But the following CT scan showed cancer had spread to other organs. Over the last 3 months it has spread from her spleen and liver, to her stomach, pancreas, colon, kidneys, etc. and as of this week she is now hospitalized with infections that have been hard to treat. This cancer is very advanced and we are running out of time. We want Mom to be comfortable, happy, stress free, and that is a big reason why I am trying to raise this money. Some of the money to help her children travel from out of state to be by her side in these last dire moments. She needs her children all here for her. In the past 2 years Mom and I have been constantly going to and from the hospital with a variety of appointments. CT scans, chemo, transfusions, doctor appointments, INR check, labs..... Some of these appointments are scheduled more than once a week. Fortunately Mom was approved for Medicaid when she was 4 months into her first treatment. What a relief! But Medicaid doesn't pay for everything and there is so many extra expenses when someone is fighting a disease like this. Mom hasn't been able to work and keep up with the business she owns like she did last year. Flaxseed Body Warmers is the name of her home business. Her sales are seasonal, fall and winter being the time when internet sales carry her financially into spring and summer. With all of the additional costs that come with an illness like this and the rapid decrease in sales from her business, it's causing some concern on her financial state. We have thought many times about raising some money to help with costs, but she thought she could do it on her own. Thank you for taking the time to read this and please donate if you can.
