Fighting the hard fight!

Bobbie Jo is a shinning star in this world, always goes out of her way to care for others anyway she can, putting herself last. Now she needs that karma to return to her and for her to receive that same care. My mom has worked extremly hard as a landscaper most of her life, raising 3 kids of her own alone and still somehow helping to support and feed the less fortunate kids in our neighbornood. At one point she had 3 additional teenage boys under her roof and still managed to prepare meals for us after working long hours landscaping plus invite over other kids and really anyone who hadn’t had a home cooked meal in a long time! I still don’t know how she did it, she couldnt afford it but she knew it was the most important thing to do and made it happen. She even struggled with making the mortgage payment every month but that didn’t stop her!
Pancreatic cancer thinks it can stop her but it’s wrong. At the young age of 60 my mom has the strength and heart to beat this horrible cancer! She can do anything!
Her fight started this week with her first chemotherpy treatment. The doctor says after a couple more months of weekly chemo treatments she should be ready to have the Wipple procedure to remove the mass in her Pancreas and then follow up with more chemo.
I’m asking for help for her financially because she truly needs it. Every dollar donated will go to travel expenses for her care, household costs and mortgage payment. Sometimes it’s hard to ask for help, especially for my mom. She is so used to handling everything by herself, she’s the most independent and inspirational person I will ever know so I’m here asking for her. She needs to focus on healing and not stressing about bills. It’s time to reach out and see if all the positivity and love she has put out in this world can be returned!
Thanks you for your support anyway you can! If you can’t afford to donate please post some words of encouragement to her Facebook, I think that could really brighten her day, everyday!
Just search Bobbie Jo Blood, she should be easy to find!
Thanks again!
