Hi, my name is Jessica. I’m Filomena youngest daughter. My mom after a craniotomy done for a biopsy of a suspicious lesion on Sept. 11th, she was diagnosed with a Stage 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) tumour, the deadliest and most aggressive forms of Brain Cancer. While there is no current cure available, treatment is provided to prolong the quality of life. Unlike most other cancers, you hardly ever hear about GBM. It creeps in silently and takes over brain matter and cells with quickness and cruelty unmatched by any other cancers.
Imagine your whole life changing in a split second. She was just fine last month, then out no where Sept. 4th she felt dizzy with a headache and turned into this horrible brain cancer that can now take her life so quick! She can’t walk, eat, use the bathroom, or use her whole left side of her body. Everyday that goes by she’s getting weaker. I don’t have the necessary things at home to help her but I’m definitely trying my best, and I won’t give up! The Hospital just sent her home like if there’s nothing else they can do. I need the right help and treatment for her. My heart is broken, but there’s still hope and faith inside my heart! Even though everything is happening so fast, & doctors are saying she only has up to 7 months to live, there’s still a God of Miracles!
We would like to put it out there to ask for assistance with any donation anybody can spare to contribute towards raising funds to pay for any of my moms (Filomena) ongoing therapy and treatments and to help ease the financial burden of this cruel situation we find ourselves in. If is not possible for you to donate, at least please keep her in your prayers! I will highly appreciate it.
We welcome any donation you can spare and thank you all so much for your ongoing support during this difficult time. God bless!
