My name is Emily Hultman and I decided to start a fundraiser for medical bills and other living expenses for my parents.
In July of 2022, my mother, Debbie Larnder, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Non-Small cell adenocarcinoma. It is the most common type of lung cancer in non-smokers, and is likely due to years of exposure to Silica dust working at a light bulb factory.
My mother enjoyed 2 months of retirement before her cancer diagnosis, and also suffered a malignant pleural effusion, and a pleural fluid infection requiring a two-week hospital stay.
This past Sunday, September 25, she suffered a stroke and due to being on a blood thinner, had to be life flighted to UPMC Presbyterian in Pittsburgh where the clot was removed via a catheter in the wrist.
The clot was in her brain for upwards of 8 hours, and she may require intense rehabilitation, and this may even postpone her second chemotherapy treatment.
These funds will also help my dad either drive to Pittsburgh often (a 3 hour drive), or possibly for him to stay in a hotel in the city.
My parents are kind, good hearted people and they do not deserve this and my heart is absolutely broken. Please help me raise some funds to help them get through this.
Every dollar counts.
Thank you so very much ❤
