As of Sunday I learned that my mother has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She said the words over the phone, but I laughed... I laughed with confusion over such a strange joke. My mom couldn't have cancer? I even said aloud "Oh come on, no you don't." The quiet on the other end of the phone stopped me still in my tracks.
My mom is Superwoman. She has overcome some of the most impossible of situations, doing whatever it takes to provide for not only her three daughters, but others going through life struggles, pain, or suffering.
I am having trouble finding the words to explain how this is impacting my family. My mom will be missing work, starting chemotherapy, and is also teetering on anemia making her exhausted. She will need help in covering her day to day living expenses while she is not able to work. In an attempt to give my mom some peace of mind, I would like to ask for financial assistance to help us get through this time.
My mom is a WARRIOR. A SURVIVOR. Cancer will not break our family. Please help in giving my mom the opportunity to devote her emotional resources to her recovery, rather than financial burdens and uncertainty that come along with all of this.
All the love in the world. Thank you all.
