Love & Support for Betty

In late September my mom was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.  We knew this was going to be a long, hard, road but didn’t realize how soon it would start.  Just 2 days after completing radiation mom was hospitalized.  Since December 12th she has gone through multiple scans, 3 procedures, and 2 big surgeries that we didn’t know would come so soon.  She is the glue to our family.  My mom is the strongest woman I know. You will never catch her complaining but you will ALWAYS see her giving God the praise for everything!  She truly does let her light shine. Mom has had an online business for years on Etsy where she sells baby ruffled socks, special made baby clothing, and baby hair bows. Dad works side jobs to help others out. Since Mom has been in the hospital and shut down her Etsy shop and Dad has been by her side the extra funds are no longer coming in. Dad has extra expense of fuel and food daily while medical bills are piling up. With all of that being said we still have a long way to go.  All prayers and any help would be greatly appreciated.
