Jennifer's fight

My mother was diagnosed with lung cancer in July of 2017. It is a rare form of cancer that  metastasizes  rapidly. She was progressing with treatment until she started to have seizures. This caused her to lose all movement in her left side. After a dangerous and scary seizure we took her to the hospital. They didn't consider brain tumors at first because not even a month earlier she had a Ct scan and her brain was clear of tumors. They chose to do another scan which revealed results my mother, father and I were not ready to hear. The cancer spread to her brain in seven different spots making removal impossible. Five tumors were causing bleeding in her brain. This information was followed with the statement "you have about four months left to live". My mother has been receiving radiation in hopes to reduce the size of the brain tumors, With the rapid growth and placement of all 7 tumors, my mothers life is still expected to be cut very short. My mother has cared for so many throughout her life. Taking on over 30 foster children, while adopting three and caring for three of her own.Jennifer cared for her mother while she suffered with ALS, and was there every second till her last  breath.My mother even moved states to care for my great grandfather in his last years. She's cared for her husband when he went through cancer treatments and many others. This past year alone my mother took in her brother with epilepsy and did everything to provide him with a better life. She worked hard to get him the help he needed. Jennifer never did anything for praise or for gain.Everything was from her heart because she  just has so much love.She has taking care of my father when he needed open heart surgery, and my grandmother when she was fighting  leukemia. She has taking in multiple families to help them get on their feet. She has done all this with so little. Now it's our turn to care for her. My mother and father would like to renew their vows, and we want to give them one last party. My parents are beyond amazing people and give everything they have to help others, no matter who you are. The thought that my father will lose his best friend of  more than 30 years hurts me more than anything. So please help us celebrate one more dance. Any donations will go towards medical bills and vow renewals. So please be apart of this fight!
