Native Poet Fighting Cancer

My name is Falco. My mother is a poet, artist, writer, teacher, and scientist. She is the most kind, compassionate, caring , understanding and wonderful person that I have ever known. I am so very lucky that she is my mother.
She is sick. She was diagnosed in 2017 with an aggressive form of ovarian cancer. It has spread to her lymph nodes. She is now going through a second round of chemotherapy to slow the cancers progression.
It has been a hard truth to face that our time with her is limited.
I love her so very much. I want to make her happy while we still have time to cherish.
My goal is to raise money so that I can take my mother to see more of the world before she is too sick to travel.
She worked so hard to raise my sister and I. She has always been frugal and would not ask for much. But I want her to experience even a small part of what joy it is to travel.
