Help my Mom beat cancer


My name is Nikki and I am looking to raise money for my mother. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in September of 2014.  She is the mom of a family of 8 and is the primary source of income in the home.  After the diagnosis of breast cancer, she had a double mastectomy and reconstruction surgery.  More cancer, however, has been discovered in one of the lymphnodes. She needs to continue doing chemo therapy for the next  22  weeks. During this time, she will not be able to work or earn money that she normally could make, as she has exhausted her three weeks of paid time off to cover the initial surgery.

She has done an amazing job being there for her children and never asking for a thing in return.  I just want to be able to give back to her. I am asking anyone who wants to get me a Christmas gift please just donate to this fund to help raise money for my mother. The only thing I would like for Christmas is to see my mother have a little less stress through this all!  Its the end of the year and I know times are tough. So I just ask that you give what you can now or just give a little later. I will keep the fund open enough to raise some money just to help her out. The amount I chose was basically her salary for the time out of work plus a little extra to help cover some copays. 

Thank you.
