My mom Liz was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer on Jan. 16, 2017.( my birthday ) There is no cure for Pancreatic Cancer and her time is limited. It's been a constant battle to keep her in good health and to keep her spirits up. It seems like every time we get good news... Bad news follows.
We took several hits this week. Her disability checks have stopped temporarily due to her doctor not filing her paperwork on time. I've already remedied the problem but there will be a delay in her payments. ( a month or so ) Her stomach has been bloating, this is not good. She's been in some pain but I think we have in under control for now. It could be her liver or signs that the cancer has spread to her stomach. She has a CT scheduled for Wed. and we are praying for good news.
Moms birthday is this Saturday, July 29th. I know I can't make her pain go away and knowing that is more painful than anyone will ever know. As her daughter and caretaker,It's my job to try to make her life easier, handle the bullshit, and to take the hard hits. I put together this page in hopes that we can all rally behind her in her time of need and help her. Her last disabilty check was roughly $300. That won't last her a week. In leu of birthday presents please consider donating to my moms birthday fund. Every little bit helps. She would never ask....but I will because I love my mom and that's what you do when you love someone, right?
Please know she's fighting like a champ. Like Fedex, our real battle is with time and we all know how good she was at manipulating that clock so don't count her out yet! Thank you so much for your love and support. I appreciate you all!
