Hello, my name is Sara and my mom was recently diagnosed with stage three cancer. This all started last Christmas when she began feeling more and more sick and at first doctors thought it was only a bladder infection, next from another doctor we found out that her left kidney had shut down, and so we spent weeks in a hospital in Saskatoon, at first putting a stent from the kidney to the bladder and then finding out that the ureter seemed to not be straight. It was bend out of shape and there was a build up of scar tissue, which was also, not normal. Tests were done to make sure it was not cancer and they came back negative. But my mom was still not feeling any better, so we kept going to more and more appointments, which then led to a fourth CT scan. This last CT showed that there may have been a mass that they hadn't seen before which after a PET scan was then diagnosed as stage three cancer. Long story short, my parents only have one income coming in, which cannot fully support them and my two younger sisters while also paying for the treatments that my mom needs. I've decided to give gofundme a shot because my family means the world to me, and I can't get them all of the help that they need by myself. My mom, Barb, is my best friend. She is one of the funniest and most vibrant people I've ever known. She's the person I want to be and I just want her to get better and be healthy and happy. If you would like to donate, anything counts! Thanks for reading about our story. Lots of love and prayers to you all.
