Many of you probably already know that my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer last week. Until today, we were under the impression that there would be funding to at least help with the cost of treatment. Apparently, that is not the case. I plan to spend the next few days furiously researching ways to get help, but thought this might be a good place to start. Mom works a solid 80+ hours a week. She watches Annabelle for me during the day so I can work to support my 3 children and on the weekends, she pulls her own 40+ hours at her job. If ANYONE is a super hero, it's my mother. She's the sugarcube to my hot tea and if any of you know me AT ALL, you know I wouldn't ask for help unless we really needed it. I simply can not cover my own bills, her bills and what this will cost.
And SHE CAN'T GET TREATMENT until we can pay. A true sign of just how messed up our healthcare system is.
Any amount that can be donated will help so very much as will any advise as to where we can go to apply for help. Words of encouragement.
