Two weeks ago we received a terrifying diagnosis for my mother, stage IV colon cancer that has metastasized to the liver. A great number of tests, procedures and medications have already been done or prescribed and much more is needed and although she has medical insurance, she has a high deductible and as treatment progresses she will be unable to work, at least for some time. That is why I am counting on the kindness of all who come across this campaign to help us help her fight. I have set a goal at $5,000 based on statistics from the National Center for Biotechnology Information, but even if we raise just a penny that would be appreciated beyond words.
Each and every cent will be spent to help her pay the bills and fees that have already started piling up, and I will share proof of payment with anyone who would like to see that this is not a scam, not a lie, just a plea to help her during this extremely difficult time.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me. I thank everyone in advance for even taking the time to read this. Hopefully one day soon I'll be able to support someone in need and return the favor.
All the best.
