My mother, Sherry was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in early June. It attacked her lymphatic system, tailbone and spine. Tumors shattered her tailbone, and the largest is currently crushing her spine causing immense and unnerving pain. A specialized bed and equipment in the hospital has been mitigating much of the pain but that equipment isn't covered by hospice and once she's released from the hospital this week, she won't have the trauma relief anymore. The equipment she needs can be rented privately at great cost and I have spent every dollar of savings I have staying here with her in her final months. I love my mom with my entire heart and all I want in the whole world is for her final moments to be in as little pain as possible. This is an attempt to reach out for help and even though it harms my ego to ask for help in this manner, nothing is worth not exhausting every avenue I can to help relieve her burden. Thank you so much for reading this and empathizing. Moms are one of the greatest gifts this world has to offer and we should appreciate every second we have with them.
