I keep hearing Ovarian Cancer being labeled as "The Silent Killer". I finally understood this when she was diagnosed at Stage 4 immediately. My mother's specialists flat out told me that it is never caught before Stage 3. Recent studies have indicated that one in 55 women would get the disease. It's mind blowing to me that what ultimately gave me my life, is trying to take my mother from me.
I have learned a lot about medicare and medicare advantage over the last few weeks. I have had many wonderful people advocating on my behalf, and educating me in the process. Those who know me personally, know that I am the primary caregiver to my mother in this country, with no other "family" support to speak of in the United States. As of January 1st, my mother with start with Medicare Advantage that will help moving forward with bills. The issue we face now is we can't hold off on chemotherapy, nor can we wait on surgery.
She misses having the energy to walk around and play with our two rescue dogs and three cats. She has always been very energetic and outgoing; very quick to volunteer or donate her time.
Our loved ones have been a great help, and we will not stop praying for a miracle. Unfortunately, during times like these you develop a sense of humbleness and humility, and are now asking all of those who are reading this to help her through this time, I want my mother focusing on getting better and not stressing about medical bills. My mom and all who love her are grateful for any amount, and if you cannot afford it, please share. That is the greatest generosity in itself. Thank you for keeping us both in your thoughts and prayers.
