Funeral For Kim!

My name is Shannon and Kim is my mom, she is 54 years old.  She is an amazing women with 4 children, 2 grandbabies and another on the way!! She is a loving women, who enjoys her grand babies more than anything, was a stay at home grandma who helped with baby sitting all the time. She was so excited when she found out I was pregnant and she is praying for a grand daughter. She loves her children with her whole heart and has always given us everything we needed and has always been there no matter what. 8 weeks ago my mom was happy and healthy and seemed perfectly fine, about 5 weeks ago my mom started suffering from terrible migraines, they were so bad she couldnt leave a dark room, or even get up for that matter and she was getting sick her migraines were so bad. She then started to turn yellow(jaundice) so she was taken to the emergency room, and they ran some tests and found a mass on her lung, one on her breast and 3 lesions on her brain. They suspected cancer but didnt say 100% so she was sent to Seidman Cancer Center in Cleveland. There they did PET scans, Biopsies, CAT scans and the news just kept getting worse and worse. They found 13 lesions on her brain, a tumor on her lung, her breast and her pancreas. After doing biopsies they determined that she has Stage 4 Non small cell Lung Cancer that metastasized. She did radiation for her brain, and started immunotherapy. Things just went downhill after her radiation, confusion, falling asleep standing up among many other crazy side effects.  But today we found out the cancer spread to her kidneys and they are stopping treatment because the cancer is getting worse and there isn't anymore the doctors can do. Her 6 months turned into weeks.. Our family would be so grateful for any kind of donation, as my mother has no life insurance, or funeral coverage, plus all the medical bills that need covered! We would appreciate anything for impending funeral expenses for when the time comes. It breaks my heart to even ask but we want to be prepared! Thank you to any and everyone who can help out. Today August 14, 2017 we laid our mother to rest. We still have funeral expenses that need paid so please any help would be so much appreciated! God Bless!
