Give Me Life

This Go Fund Me account is for our mom. She has stage 4 lung cancer (and she is not a smoker) that was diagnosed a year and half ago. Her cancer has metastasized to her pelvic, femur and spine, which made it very hard to keep working. She is the hardest working person I know, for her to have to take a step back from a job she loved was very hard for her.

When she first found out about her cancer, she made it her goal to beat it. When most people hear the word "cancer" they think it's a death sentence. Our mom didn't. She took it on as a challenge and has not stopped fighting since. She has not only found alternative routes to fight, but has traveled miles and miles to find the best doctors that she feels will help her the best way they know how. Her alternative therapies and supplements she has been doing though are not covered by insurance, therefore she has to pay out of pocket.

The goal of this Go Fund Me account is to help our mom be able to afford further treatments. Because of her not being able to work, she has had to use her retirement money. Because her circulating cancer tumor cell markers have been so much better, we want to make sure she is able to continue treatments and keep fighting. Our mom is such a humble person, she doesn’t like asking for help and has never wanted charity or pity. She isn’t very comfortable with asking for help, but we know she deserves all the help she can get.
We thank all of you that have contributed and who keep sharing this post. ❤️
