Help Single Mother Fighting Cancer Again

This go fund me page is for my mom, Heather. She is a sweet, kind, and strong single mom who has raised her two kids on her own.  Heather loves to travel, being a dance/sports mom, Disneyland, Disney World, going to the beach and spending time with her kids and friends. She has been diagnosed with colorectal cancer for the second time. Heather was diagnosed with cancer for the first time in 2013 (during this time she learned that she has Lynch syndrome.) Along with Heather fighting cancer, she had a life threatening flesh eating bacteria infection (necrotizing fasciitis) that nearly took her life. She fought to live for her children! She faced numerous complications and extended hospital stays. During treatment her FMLA ran out and she was unable to return to work. Her employer replaced her job and did not offer her a full time position upon remission. Another set back but Heather never lost her positive attitude!  Even after Heather went into remission, she has continuously struggled with her health as well as having to miss work due to illness and multiple visits to the E.R. She has also had two hospitalizations in the last year. Heather has just been diagnosed with cancer yet again. She has been diagnosed with recurrent metastatic colorectal cancer. Heather has become very stressed about income since she will have to miss work while doing chemotherapy, radiation, as well as surgery to remove the tumor. Heather currently works full time, but her oncologist has recommended that she only work part time during treatment. Because of appointments and hospitalization, Heather currently only has 20 hours of available PTO. She does have insurance but it is a high deductible policy. Paying medical bills and missing work is not something my mom should be stressing or worrying about since she is sick. Her only concern should be fighting cancer and getting better. I appreciate anyone who has come to this page and anyone who has read through this to the end. Anything is appreciated during this time to help Heather and her two kids. If you can’t donate, please share. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. #teamheather
