For my mother breast cancer stage 4. I have been dragging my feet publishing this section. I have written hundreds of paragraphs and deleted them. Apart from feeling helpless, nothing I write was good enough to describe this woman; my mom whom I call Mama. I truly consider myself blessed to have had her as my mother, without my own volition. I am not naive enough to say she is the best mother in the world. But I believe that if all mothers in this world were at least as selfless, and kind as her. The world would most definitely be a better place. My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer (triple negative) May 2017. I still frequently think about that day; maybe if I hadn't answered my phone, maybe things would be different! The cancer had metastasized to her liver, lungs, bones, lymph nodes. The doctors gave her 12 to 14 months. We already passed that mark and we are on month 18. Her condition is deteriorating. Our family is in need of well wishes, prayers, good vibes, first and foremost. No matter your race, religion, gender...etc. Secondly, I don't have to explain the astronomical healthcare costs to anyone. Especially, without insurance. Me and my brother have been taking care of everything financially since she was diagnosed. And it's definitely taken a toll on both of us and our respective families.
