VEGASTRONG - Championing for Carol

Fitness Felines  (Andrea Terrones and Rebecca Vega), with the support of the Vega Family, are working to raise money to help offset the cost of the nursing facility of Rebecca's mom, Carol Vega. 

Carol was diagnosed with COPD  last summer. After being hospitalized in September for low sodium, she was put on oxygen full time and inhalers to help with respiration. During her stay, two spots were found on her left lung. The nodes were biopsied in November and confirmed to be Stage 3 Small Cell Cancer. Because of the location of the nodes, they are inoperable. Small cell cancer is very aggressive and though it could potentially be "slowed down" with chemotherapy, it cannot be cured. Carol opted not to pursue chemotherapy. The combination of her COPD and the nodes constricting her airways, breathing has become very labored, resulting in restless sleep. After having to be hospitalized a few days before Christmas, Carol is now at Someren Glen , a skilled nursing facility. Summit Community Hospice  is also providing care and resources. 

The level of care Carol is receiving is excellent so we are working to raise money to aid in the funding of this facility. We don't know how much time we have left with Carol, but we want it to be the most comfortable for her and least stressful for the family.

Please join us in helping this influential woman - wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, friend. No donation is too small.

Thank you!
