Young mom of 3 - Pancreatic cancer

Hello, my name is Christina. I am 37, a mother of three beautiful kids, a wife to a wonderful man, a self employed business owner and unfortunately the owner of a unwanted tumour growing around my digestive organs. I have been in the hospital since July 10, 2015. The hospital has performed 2 endoscopic ultra sounds, 3 failed ERCP procedures, 1 MRI and 3 CT scans. It was discovered on the second CT that I have a tumour growing on the head on the pancreas after a month long stay. The Dr's have said this may be cancer, yet the only way to test is to remove and test. If it is cancer, they do not want to risk the cancer spreading . The procedure I will endure is very extensive - the Whipple procedure. This surgery takes 5-8 hours to complete. This surgery will take place Monday, August 17th.
If successful, I may still require cancer treatment to ensure cancer does not spread.
The reason I am setting this up is I do not want my family to have additional hardship attempting to pay off bills as I can not work and will not be able to work for sometime as recovery will be slow and very painful. I want to do all I can for them as I love them with every ounce of my being and going through this has been enough for any child to have to endure without having further financial hardship. If you can find it in your heart to help my family, we would be forever grateful.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story and thank you for your compassion!
