Frances Fight Against Lymphoma

My mother Frances is a life force.   She gives love, life and service wherever they are needed: whether she worked tirelessly for Dept Children and Families for over 30 years helping those in great need; she serves as usher, choir member, birthday committee and within others ministries at her church; she volunteers her time and talents to the seniors of Broward county; and for the past 8 years she has worked as a substitute teacher for the children of South Florida.   In addition to serving her community, church, and youth, my mother raised four children as a single mother. Finding the time and energy to work in various fund raisers for her children to experience the most from school  programs. 

My mother, Frances, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma on January 14, 2015. Now she is gearing up to win her battle against lymphoma.   The lymphoma is pretty extensive throughout her lymphatic system. So, her oncologist started treatment immediately.  In all, she will have 6 rounds of chemotherapy every three weeks for four days at a time (treatment ending some time of May 2015). Because of this, my mother is unable to work and pay for her basic living expenses.  

Your donations will help her pay the 20% of her medical expenses her insurance does not cover and her basic living expenses.

Please keep mom in your prayers and send positive energy and love her way.

Good morning Family and Friends. I'm hoping each and everyone of you are doing great this beautiful Tuesday. I give God the glory for life and allowing me to give this amazing praise report. When I returned from New York last week for my brother's home going celebration, I had an MRI and PET/CT. On yesterday, I returned to the hospital to have my pic-line removed. While there, the nurse told me what I already believe and trusted God for, that my doctor said the test were stable and the report showed no evidence of Non-Hodgkins Lymphona. So my Family and Friends, I just want to remind you to continue believe in yourself and the rest will get easier. Constantly keep yourself in the right direction. It may not be easy at times but in those times of struggle you will find a stronger sense of who u are. So when the days come that are filled with frustrations and unexpected responsibilities, remember to believe in yourself and all that life is, because the challenges and changes will only help you to find the dreams that you know are meant to come true for you. Keep believing in your self and most of all Trust God and keep the Faith. Blessings and Love always, Frances Perez

Mom turns sixty-six years old today! Although she is in the hospital receiving her first of the last three chemo treatments, her doctors gave her the gift of good news. The MRI results show that the cancer cells and swelling in her brain are decreasing. We received confirmation that the treatment for her body was effective. Her body tested negative for lymphoma!!! Praise God!! Now, the focus is to eliminate it from her brain.

In the beginning, the brain swelling affected her ability to walk on her own. With the help of physical therapy and mom's strong will, she needs the walker less and less. If this journey has shown me anything, it has confirmed what I've always known... Frances Perez is a strong woman!
Thank you Jerris Raiford for your generous donation!

Mom has reached the half way mark in her chemo treatment. During this cycle of chemo, mom had all three of her daughters and her four grandchildren visit her at the hospital during her treatment. But the biggest surprise and smiles came when Aunt Ludie, mom's sister, and cousin Charlene came down to surprise mom for a visit. Mom was overjoyed. Lately, mom has been sporting a new look. As usual, she looks beautiful! We can't thank you everyone enough for your continued support, prayers, gifts and donations. Mom is overwhelmed by the love.
Mom looking beautiful with her new look. Fight on our warrior queen!
