We recently discovered that the many years of chemotherapy has caused hepatotoxicity, severe liver damage. The liver metabolizes the chemotherapy drugs, which after a long period of time can severely damage the liver cells causing damage similar to cirrhosis. There is no treatment for liver damage once it occurs and there is no cure. She has been advised to discontinue any medications that are processed through the liver, ie chemotherapy.
Without chemo and with all of the upcoming appointments and possible surgery she will need assistance at home. I have decided it is time to go over and care for her. I am planning on going for 3 months, which is the longest the USA allows.
I am asking for $5000 which should cover the following:
- return flights to Nashville, TN for early 2018
- any flight changes needed if mum's situation changes
- travel insurance
- any hotel costs for myself if mum requires long term hospital stay
- petrol costs
- general living costs while I am staying there
Please donate if you can, if not, please share this with your friends and family.
I will be doing a video diary while I am in Nashville to keep you all updated on her situation, which I will share through this page.
Many thanks and much love,
