Stage 4 Breast Cancer

In the Fall of 2015 my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. After some treatment she was feeling pretty good and on her way to recovery. 

Two years later in 2017 she started having some shoulder pain that seemed to be arthritis or something of that nature. A visit to the doctor revealed that her cancer had returned and had spread to her lungs.  With lots of doctor visits and treatments filling up her schedule, in October of 2017 she had to quit her job. 

Over the next few months she had multiple Dr. visits and chemo treatments to try and stop the progression of her cancer. 

In April of 2018 she had an episode of dizziness and vomiting to the point where she had to visit the ER. In days after her speech, walking  and memory recollection was noticeably altered. An MRI of the brain was performed and revealed that the cancer had spread to her brain. 

Again, she started treatment. This time radiation therapy was performed to try to remove the cancer. This treatment did seem to help with the speech and memory. However, her walking ability started to diminish. 

In May of 2018 after having more Exams to check the progress of her brain cancer, they found that the cancer was now in the lumbar spine area. This was affecting her ability to use her legs. 

Today, she is getting radiation therapy treatment and is in a wheelchair and unable to walk.

Any funds raised will go towards helping obtaining treatment existing medical bills and to pay for medical necessities. 

This is a very aggressive cancer and funds are needed as soon as possible to help prevent the spreading.
