Hello friends, I am asking for some help in the need of my wonderful mother.
If anyone of you knows my mother then you know that she is a single mom to my brother and I. She has had her own cleaning business for over 27 years and is an extremely hard worker. She has made it her goal to make sure we were always taken care of, busting her butt to make sure she was always able to give us what we wanted or what she thought we needed. She is the most beautiful and kindhearted woman I have ever met in my life. The kind of person that would give you the shirt of her back if you needed it, always so loving and giving and going above and beyond what was expected of her not only for us but also to her clients that have become like family to us. Until about 5 months ago life was turned a little upside down for all of us.
This led to countless times in and out of the hospital with multiple tests, blood transfusions, and a constant sickness that didn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. No doctor could understand why she was so sick or what was going on, as she was as healthy as a horse and in great physical shape. About a month or so ago they decided to dig a little deeper and she went for a D&C that is a scraping of the uterine wall. The results came back to having very enlarged ovaries and a couple signs of cancerous cells that they wanted to research further. We then got sent to the Moffitt Cancer Center to have her do a full body exam. During that exam a lymph node was found to be a little suspicious right under her collarbone. Before leaving that appointment the doctor had told us she was positive for Cervical cancer and it had already reached to a Stage 2 that means it had spread beyond the cervix but not to the pelvic wall. The doctor wanted more tests to be done so while waiting a week for the results and doing all sorts of biopsies, CT scans, PET scans, and MRI’s. We had a following appointment that led us to some extremely sad news. It had spread to the lymph node in the collarbone now making the cancer at a Stage 4B. As the doctors say there is no cure for this, chemo only helps to contain the cancer that has spread to the other parts of the body in hopes that after all the chemo treatments are done she can do radiation and hope that will take it away.
Due to this news, she will be working very little while she is getting chemotherapy that is starting on Monday. Money has always caused her great stress in her life always worrying she would never have enough and I would like to take that stress off her shoulders. I am doing this fundraiser to put her mind at ease so she has nothing to worry about while she does her treatments and we can all just focus on getting her better! My goal is to raise $10,000 for her living expenses and any other expense she may need during this time that she may be unable to work. She is fighting the fight for her life and coming back swinging!
