Joyful Joy needs us

My mom Joy was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2006. It’s been a roller coaster to say the least. She was given an all clear about 4 years ago however when she went for her yearly check-up this past month the doctor found some new tumors in her bladder. She is supposed to have surgery soon, however with this surgery comes a 2400.00 insurance deductible and now she’s faced with the problem of having to choose to have the surgery or pay their bills.
My mom has always been my rock and if I had the money to give her I would in a heart beat. She is my best friend enough though she probably aggravates me more than any other person on this planet but I absolutely love her for it. She is always trying to get me to laugh when I’m moody (which is kinda often). She has one of the biggest hearts of any person I know. She stays strong through this all and doesn’t let it weigh her down but I know the stress of this is starting to weigh on her. I am truly grateful to be her daughter and want nothing more than for her to go through this as stress free as possible. Even if a donation is not possible for you please consider sharing this. I do ask that if you share on FB please block my Mom and Dad so they cannot see it.
