Last November 9th, instead of celebrating her 54th birthday, my mother spent the day in the hospital after she found out she was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. Since then she has gone on bi weekly chemo treatments. After months of chemo, we see that the chemo is containing the cancer, but it’s not shrinking. So she will have to continue chemo for the rest of her life till we find another treatment . My mother has always been a fighter and will continue to fight. As of late she has been eager to do some bucket list items. One of them is to go to Europe . So I’m saving every penny I have to make it happen for her. I am planning to take her for her birthday, so she can celebrate in another country rather than think about a 1 year anniversary of her illness. Anything donated will be greatly appreciated for a woman that I love and admire. Thank you!
