For those of you who know my mother, you all know that she is a kind, selfless woman who is always trying to help others; in whichever way that she can. She is a mother of 5 and a grandmother of 8.
It was about half a year ago when my mom started to complain about breast pain. It gradually started to get worse, so we decided to have her get a check-up. Thats when we received the results that she had a mass on her left breast. After further testings, we found out that it was indeed cancerous. She was diagnosed with grade 3 breast cancer. We all felt as if everything around us was falling a part and we were helpless to stop it. Cancer does not only affects the person physically, but also mentally. My mother fell into a deeper depression than the one she was already in. Thankfully, we managed to schedule her surgery on June 6, 2017.
Post surgery, my mother is slowly recovering. However, this does not mean that the fight is over. We still have a long way to go. The next step is radiation/chemotherapy, along with different therapies.
We are reaching out and asking for help. As many of you know, cancer is a very expensive illness. We constantly have bills coming in from all of the doctors she is seeing and the treatments that she will still need. We can't do this alone. We need help from all of our family and friends. Anything that you can donate is greatly appreciated. I know that it will give my mom hope, and help her clear her mind of all the negative thoughts that go through her head everyday, especially every night. I want for her to beat this cancer so she can start looking forward to things and start living a normal life once again!
