For my mother.

Hello, this is my first time at trying this out. Please forgive any mistakes, confusion, or anything. No one asked me to make this for her, she is very humble and stubborn, tries to do everything on her own. Also I may edit the story to fix mistakes as I am not the smartest nor experienced. I may also get things mixed up because of memory issues, not to deceive.

  I am creating this GoFundMe for the purpose of asking for help, to give my Mom, my family, the support and help they need. To help relieve the stress of all they endure due to the tragic events of my mothers health decline.

 Currently, she is fighting Stage 4 Kidney cancer, stage 4 renal cancer, that has spread throughout her Lungs and Lymph Nodes. She has been going to many medical appointments, many treatments taken, medication, life altering changes just to help in this dire battle against Cancer. As of now, she is undergoing Immunotherapy every other week ontop of many other treatments for the rest of her life.

 My mother has always been the most loving, caring, helpful, selfless, nice... Just the best in the world to me and my family. She does not even like hurting bugs she is that good. All her life she has given, lost, suffered, endured, and pushed through many obstacles life can throw at people. From being broke, living in hotel rooms/cars struggling to feed 3 kids. She has put up with alot of tramatic events and is still going strong.

  She has worked since age 14 full time all her life, never asked for hand outs or help. Sometimes often working 2 jobs and a side job just to pay rent and live. My father has worked his entire life as well, sometimes 20 hour days 7 days a week, yet they still struggled due to cost of living and disasters. My parents are great parents, my mom did not want me to do this, but I did for her, she deserves happiness and health in life, not constant stress and suffering, wondering how to keep paying for chemo treatments, medicine, hospital  bills, dr bills, surgeries, everything while at the same time pay for rent, food, electric, water, gas, insurance, car insurance, phone, internet, life insurance, etc...... Also she is burdened by supporting her family.

   My mom has always loved animals, her childhood and life dream was to have horses on a farm. She finally achieved that dream after so much suffering, struggles, tragedies, burdens. Only to become struck with poor health issues. She is Diabetic and must take insulin multiple times daily, her long time diabetes has caused so much nerve damage she has nephropathy in her feet and hands. Many years back she was also in a car accident. She was sitting at a stop sign, and a drunk driver swerved and hit her, causing severe whiplash and she ended up getting a fusion in her neck. My mom also is suffering from depression after losing her loving niece and mother not far apart. I know many in this world have it, my mom is like a angel and only deserves happiness.  

  Every day despite everything holding my mom down, the daily sickness, pain, fatigue, depression, worries, stress, fear, she always still takes care of all her animals, and her family every day no matter what. If I was wealthy, My parents would finally get to retire and enjoy life. I would try and give my mom the stress free/worry free, healthy long life.

   There is much to say, but I do not want to write so many pages of info. I am willing to answer any questions I can. Thank you very much for taking your time reading this. Have a great day.

  EDIT: I forgot to add important details. I apologize:
She was Diagnosed December 2018 when she went to the er due to blood in urine. Her old doctor use to neglect her and somewhat ignore her. She ignored my moms years of bad back pain saying it was because shes 'fat'  'lazy' to just exercise. (Though clearly that doctor was very wrong.) Her kidney was removed December 2018. They told her it was only stage 1 and gave high hopes. Then changed their mind said it was stage 2. When we finally got the Oncologist to talk, he told her it was stage 3 and set her tp take  chemo (Sutent) for a year.
On the 1 year mark of taking chemo meds, her follow up CT found that the cancer spread to lungs. She was on radiation and it spread to lungs and lymph nodes. She still suffers from so much, including Angina, Sleep Apnea, Thyroid issues, many more.

Thank you again, have a good day.

Edit:  I am very grateful for everyone’s donations and help, speechless
