My Mother Mary Jane

This might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Social media nowadays is used to the good times in our life. The vacations , experiences, and our time with friends and loved ones. But sometimes life throws a curveball , and on Aug 2017 it did. My mother Mary Jayne was dianosed with Ovarian cancer stage 3. Since my folks were divorced and me being the eldest I took 100% responsibility to take care of her. She lived in Los Angeles so I made sure to drive every week to take care of her, However 6 months came and 6 chemo treatments unwent  everything seemed to be going well. Unfortunately in feb things went south to the point I decided to move her back to Vegas, I’m grateful for my dad and aunt here in town to open their house to her. This month has been the hardest for her, I hate seeing her hurt/sick. I’ve been trying to have a “normal” life/routine but I’m usually with her at night and the start of my day. If the day comes I honestly wouldn’t know how to react esp for someone as young as me to lose a parent. I believe I got my dashing personality and sense of humor from her lol. Which helps me get through everyday life and I thank her for that. She’s always taught me to be kind to others as she was to everyone even her patients as a nurse. A lot of my friends know her as a very kind woman , always welcoming never judging . The past few months have been a roller coaster of emotions. The point of this letter is to tell everyone to be grateful for life and your health . And if you have some spare time maybe say a prayer for her. This go fund me account is for her to help pay for little things. You don’t have to donate but I do appreciate if you do I just appreciate a prayer for her. Power of prayer is and can be powerful,  I’ll continue to to be the best man I can be because of how she raised me. I love you mom.
