Sarah "POG Mom" McGloghlon has now been diagnosed with cancer for the third time! This time her diagnosis is Stage IV Melanoma
. The first finding was in her neck, the second also in the neck. This third diagnosis has spread through her blood to the bone marrow in her pelvis, femur and lower spine. Amazingly, Sarah has decided to share her story, emotions, frustrations, and life with anyone that wants to watch, which is amazingly brave. Sarah is 35 years old, mother of two amazing kiddos and wife to Josh. She has always worked to help others and has worked for non-profits, schools, and currently works as a 911 Call Taker, soon to transition to a 911 Records Clerk position with the same agency, helping people on a daily basis.
To learn more about POG Mom's cancer, she has recently started a VLOG on our POG Family YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZ4mWkNCt4WCg2-Gs1UXjnZZDKfzxRZvw
One thing that is difficult to see, share, and not understood by many is that life continues, and people with severe medical conditions don't have the same opportunities to realize their goals. For life becomes work, being sick, and a little bit of fun here and there. We create lives with various bills, debts, and so on, attempting to live "The Dream." Severe sickness quickly strips away much of those dreams or even the ability to attain them. As mentioned, you get to go to work and then use any time off to do medical tests, appointments, scans, treatments, therapy, and the list goes on and on. So little time for family, vacation, adventure, relaxation, and realizing dreams. In addition, those dreams change. You now have a dream not to have cancer, a dream for more time, a dream to trade just about anything for sickness to go away.
This GoFundMe is in hopes of doing just that for Sarah "POG Mom" McGloghlon, and others as well. We often take a lot and spread it to a few people to minimize the ongoing issues. What if A LOT of people do just a little bit to make some of those issues go away altogether? What if everyone donated $1, $5, or at most $10? If 1 million people donated $1, the goal to help Sarah and others much more fully would be realized.
The hope is a lot of people can do a little bit to make a HUGE change! The first portion of the funds would be used to allow Sarah to realize her dreams of having more time. No, this doesn't fix cancer, but if we can give Sarah the financial freedom to realize her dreams and have the time she needs to have to do what she loves and be sick, that would be better than just work and being sick.
