My mother, Gum Kim is 57 years old and she is a cancer survivor. She is a mother of 2 children. She is a person who never gives up and fights even when others give up. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003. She had 6 rounds of chemotherapy and radiation and was cancer free. However, years ago she was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer.
During the past 4 years, she has had over 20-30 rounds of chemotherapy and many ER visits. The doctors say it's miracle she has lasted this long. 3 weeks ago, after chemotherapy she was not doing well. She could not eat, sleep, drink, move, etc. When finally we took her to the ER and were told she had pneumonia in her lungs, low white blood cell count, and completely swollen throat, hands, and legs. They tried all types of medications and treatments but the cancer had spread to her bones and her kidney started to shut down.
My mom is in her final stages and her wish is to be taken to Korea and buried there. She is most selfless person I know. She always puts her family first before herself. With this expense, we will be able to fulfill her wish. Thank you for all your support. Please keep her in your prayers.
