Maria's chemo and medical funding

By Elina

Around the last week in July my mother started with some pain in back and found it harder to get around, she managed it and controlled it with OTC pain meds. The month of August her pain grew immensely. 
Fast forward...... 
October 2nd she was brought to E.R by ambulance,  was unable to walk on her own and in extreme pain.  We were told her cancer metastasized and it's in liver, lung and all down spine! She has been in extreme pain and has been mainly asleep due to high dosage of pain meds given daily for her comfort.  
Since then, things have happened so fast. They scheduled her for Scans/CTs and MRI the very next day Wednesday, October 3rd, another one early morning on the 4th and last one was done later that evening.
I can tell you that one of the hardest, most shocking things has been hearing the doctor say nothing more can be done at this point due to the type of cancer it is. Invasive ductal carcinoma. 

Saturday,  October 6th, in the morning as I walked in her room,  I saw the pain in her eyes, her anguish, the tiredness, but as anyone could tell you my mother is a fighter! I sat down at the edge of the bed and we talked, we cried, we promised we wouldn't give up, we won't give up faith,  we won't give up hope, we won't give up fighting, we won't give up on believing. Most of all she said SHE wasn't giving up. 

October 7th at 10am was her first chemotherapy treatment!!! 

At this point we don't know what the body's response will be, nor do we know what the future will hold.  We do know whichever way God chooses this to go we don't want to give up hope. She doesn't have insurance and we definitely don't have thousands laying around.  Hospital bills are adding up,  she's now been 2weeks in,  and no signs of being discharged yet. At this point we know it will be costly but with God's grace we are hopeful and have faith donations will start coming in to help relief a bit of stress. 

For anyone that knows my mother, she's a caring friend who always helps out in the best way possible. She always puts her family and loved ones first and often times she forgets to take care of herself due to doing for others. She is an amazing mother,  even greater grandmother,  and most of all a loving human being.

Now It's her turn,  her turn to see humanity come together for her and our family. We have faith that God will allow this blessing to happen. 

*Please consider donating to help us fight the battle with a little less stress on our shoulders,  and be able to get her the help needed to continue a life ahead. Every donation will be used for incurred medical expenses, continued care, travel, and any other additional expenses throughout my mother's fight for healing.
