My name is Cody Wales and I have started this campaign to raise money for my mother who was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in March. She has started chemotherapy and is becoming increasingly weaker with every passing day.
For as long as I can remember, we have been poor but my mom always managed to get us what we needed. She has worked her whole life, never less than 2 jobs (usually 3-4 jobs) at a time, all the time, 60 hours a week for 25 years just to take care of me and my brother and keep her home. She has literally worked her life away for us. The real kicker to me is that even after finding out she has terminal stage 4 lung cancer she is STILL WORKING at a gas station 2 days a week. She says she wants to make sure every thing is taken care of for my 19 year old brother and I regarding her house and what possessions she has incase she passes sooner than she thought. She doesn't want social security or the bank to take anything from her.
Here is a woman that is essentially dying of cancer but still putting her children before her own health. This is just about the saddest, hardest, most heartbreaking thing for me. I have already spent most of what little money I have trying to buy alternative medicines and healthy food for her. So I'm putting my pride aside and reaching out.
This is extremely hard for me. I, much like my mom, hate asking for money or help. Please if you have 10 cents, a dollar, 5 dollars, 20 dollars, 100 dollars- literally ANYTHING helps. Please help a woman who has worked her whole life focus on her health, work less, and have some peace when she needs it most.
