We were all so glad to hear that she was able to “beat” this cancer but 5 years later we were given the dreadful news that her cancer had spread. When I heard of this news i was in total disbelief. I was heartbroken. I couldn't believe that my biggest role model was cursed with this again. Her cancer had spread to her lungs, bones, and spine where she was given the status of a stage 4 cancer patient. I didn't take this news lightly as it haunted me for many sleepless nights again. One night I decided to stop sulking and do something to help my family with the expenses of her new treatment. I felt that since I couldn't help when she first got cancer since I was young I decided to do something. She decided to seek the help of a holistic treatment center in Florida where she will spend the next 7 weeks. On top of all the sacrificing she did for me she also found the time to work with autistic children by doing ABA therapy in public schools in Garfield, New Jersey. Since my mom cannot fly due to the severity of her cancer, we will be driving down to Florida and I will spend the next 4 weeks with her since i'm going to start my first semester of college in early fall. All i want is for my mom to get better and I feel with the help of the many kind people on this site I feel like we will be able to get my mom back on her feet and fight this terrible disease that has plagued and affected so many people. Thank you so much for all of the contributions and saving the life of this person who is not only precious to me but to many other people as well.
