In November of 2017, me and my family were hit with the horrifying news that my father had developed Squamous cell carcinoma in situ of the right vocal cord stage one. A short month after that, my mother was diagnosed with stage one breast cancer. Staying positive has become a hardship for us because of the fact that medical bills, surgeries, and medication have only seemed to pile up and become extremely overwhelming. On top of it all, my mother's cancer has escalated to stage three. After her updated diagnosis, my mother underwent a partial mastectomy and will now begin chemotherapy starting the end of March, apart from chemotherapy she will also be undergoing radiation treatments and a power port surgery. Although having medical insurance has greatly lowered the costs of everything, it does not cover all of the past, present and upcoming medical procedures and the bills that come with it. Unfortunately my parent's jobs do not support both the medical bills and the everyday costs of living and supporting a family of four. Due to my parents financial and health situation we are asking for the help and support of family, friends and acquaintances.
As most of my friends know, asking for help is a serious struggle for me. However, I feel that I am left with no other option but to reach out to anyone who is willing to help, even in the slightest way. I would greatly appreciate any and all types of help that any of you can give me and my family through this troubling time.

Thank you and God bless!
