It pains me to write this, but here I am.
As some of you may know, my mom, Elizabeth Banman, has been dealing with what we believe to be cancer, for several months now. A few weeks ago she began to experience severe pain and discomfort coming from her lower back, with pain shooting far into her legs. Thinking that it was a bad disc on her spinal cord, she went to take an MRI, which revealed something we didn't want to hear: there is a tumor in her lower spine, which is pressing against her spinal cord and causing this intense pain. After a desperate family meeting and much fellowship, it was decided that my mom should be taken to Mexico City for treatment, after which they would need to stay in Playa del Carmen for further treatments, for 9 more weeks. This is where my parents are now.
The financial burden of the medical expenses are too great for our family to bear, so we are asking for any donations. If my mom has touched your life in any way, or if you feel led to give something, please see below. If you can't give financially, please take some time for prayer, we need that too.
May God bless you.
