Let me tell you a little bit about my mom. Her name is Sheri, mother of two, grandmother to 8, great grandmother to 2. Worked hard her entire life, scraping by week to week, yet she would still give you her last dollar if you needed it. Once covid hit her place of employment they were forced to shut down hoping to ride out the wave until it was safe to reopen. Unfortunately they are still closed. Leaving my mom without the income she needs to survive.
Recently my mom has been feeling fatigued, coughing, passing out and having a hard time breathing while trying to complete normal day to day activities. So mom went to the doctor. He said "Sheri you have a mass it looks like lung cancer go directly to the hospital". The biopsy reveled cancer. Mom met with an oncologist and was told she had small cell lung cancer. After several tests they determined she has 4 small tumors in her brain and a large inoperable tumor in her lung attached to her aorta. A port has been installed. Chemo and radiation were ordered and will start next week.
Mom is a very independent woman living with her friends or family is the last resort. While my mom goes through treatment I didn't want to see her worrying about how she's going to pay her bills. She needs to focus on her health and being positive during treatment so I am asking if you can help.
Thank you for taking the time to read this story about my mom.
Happy holidays to you all!
