My mom was recently diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer. She is only 52, only 10 years older than her own mother was when she died of inflamatory brest cancer.
Mom has never had an easy life. Not only did she loose her own mother at the age of 19, but she also lost her eldest son to suicide 11 years ago. What`s really extraordinary about my mom is that she has always chosen taken up the pain and suffering she experienced and offered it as a gift to those around her. She has spent most of her life encouraging those around her to never lose hope!
Now its our chance to repay the favour. The chemo offered here in Canada only offered her another 5 years, and she would be sick through most of it. So Mom has decided to move forward with treatment at the Hope for Cancer Clinic in the states. It will cost $40,000 for a year`s worth of treatment, but if it is successful, she will have the opportunity of a LONG, happy, and Cancer Free life.
My goal is more than simply raising this $40,000 for her. My goal is for my mom to experience the support and the love from others, that she has so freely given to friends, family, and often, complete strangers.
After losing her son to suicide, she spent many years doing everything she could to help save lives by educating people about suicide, breaking down the stigma that surrounds it, and providing interventions.
Now my mom`s life is the one at risk... will you help me save it?
