Save a Life: I Love My mami

My mami has always taken care of me but when I had to come to the United States for a better opportunity, I had to leave her and my siblings behind. I am now on track to graduate high school in June 2018 and have great grades. Work is really hard to come by in Mexico, so I also work and send money back home to my family. At the end of February 2018, I got the worst news I could ever hear...my Mami was diagnosed with Cancer. I can't travel back home now and she can't come here but I have to help her with the medical expenses and the money I have saved is just not enough.  Mami needs to have an operation by March 20th to remove the source of the cancer and hopefully stop it from spreading anywhere else. She doesn't have any medical insurance in Mexico to pay for the operation, so I need to help her pay for it.  Mami takes care of my little brother and sister back in Mexico and we really need to take care of her now. Mami can't rely on anyone else for help at this time. The story on the top is real but doctors say mami needs more time because is very risk this surgery so now the sergury was placed by April 30 Thank you a lot
