Dear community,

I have come across extremely devastating news within the last two weeks and I am trying to do as much as I can to save someone incredibly dear to me. I am currently in the United States and need to find a way to help from over here.

My mother, Gail, has been diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer. This has been one of the saddest most devastating news I have ever received.  My mom may be the most devoted veteran for God. She has so much faith and loyalty to Him. She and my father started a non-profitable mission in South Africa to help whole families, moms, kids, and even substance abusers re-establish their lives and do a complete 180 from their former paths. Since the beginning, my mom and dad have voluntarily offered up their house to help restore these peoples lives. They have been running this mission for about 8 years now despite being consistently low on funds and chose to sacrifice their house, comfort, and privacy to take more than a hundred people during that span. Currently they have around 20-30 people living at the house that they are providing for. If you want more information about their mission, please visit their website to see the work they do for others.
http://mitchfamily3.wix.com/mitchells-mission



Due to the situation of using all of their provisions to help the people within the house, my parents are having difficulties finding a way to pay for the treatment. She has been forced to go to a government run hospital in South Africa which is not equipped to treat very many patients. Since she can not afford another hospital, she will not be able to get the care she needs for the next forseeable future and thus the government hospital is treating her like a lost cause.


Please, any help you can offer big or small is urgently needed. If that is not feasible, offer up prayers and more prayers to help my mom.
She deserves more life on this earth, her job helping people is not yet done.


All of the funds will go straight to paying for the treatment, ie Chemo and Radiation sessions, which will be given between 4-5 times a week.  If any is left over, will be generously donated to Mitchell's Mission - both of which are in desperate need of help. If the funds are raised within this next month (30 days), we could get my mom into treatment immediately rather than waiting for an unknown period of time to get her into the government run hospital.



We will be eternally grateful for any help that is offered. My mom is determined to fight this and so are we.

I apologize for the long post. But my mom is is worth it, and I will continue to pray and ask for support, even if it takes 100 more posts like this

For those of you in South Africa or wherever, and are finding it difficult to donate through the crowd funding page you can direct the donation straight to my Dad, Mark Mitchell, again, power of prayer is real, and your small/big donation means literally the world to me and my family. I appreciate everyone who has shared the page and continuing to pray. I will be waking up and going to sleep with my mom in my prayers.

When donating, make the title of the payment GAILSFUND

Account number: 4081522885
Account Holder: (my dad) Mark Mitchell

Love,
Jazz and Steve, Kirky boy, Storm and family, Mark(Daddy), Mitchells Mission, and most of all Gail Evelyn Mitchell

XOX,
God Bless

Update on my mums campaign: We have received a few more donations and they were very helpful and I thank each and everyone for all your shares and prayers and of course your donations. The amount of support we have been has been a blessing. My mom is staying positive and is looking after her diet and making sure she is getting the cancer fighting nutrients. We have raised $3,800. Which translates to R52000. We have accomplished 50% of what my mum needs. This would never have been possible without each and everyone of your shares and donations. Please continue to pray and support my mum through this trial. Thank you so much.

Just Skyped with my mom, still have some tears welled up in my eyes. Very tough seeing her lying in the hospital bed, struggling to talk. My dad is very supportive, and is making sure she gets everything she needs. She is currently fasting and she is beginning a very strict diet that contributes to the treatment of cancer cells. This is not at all an easy process. She is taking it slow, but she still has a smile on her face and she is the strongest woman I have ever known. She wants to live.
She said she wants to see some grandchildren popping out of me haha!!
I urge each and everyone of you who read this, do not be ignorant in doing your check ups and tests for when your age group has statistically started to form specific cancer cells(aging). Although my mom did, she still has become a victim to this evil disease. Please guys, be proactive with your health.
I know my mom with God, will overcome this battle. Please continue to pray, share and donate. Much love, The Mitchells

The funds are a huge help and for those who already are struggling with finances, for you to give what you can, it honestly is one of the most humbling and selfless acts. Honestly, I know who most of you are, for you to sacrifice your capital for my mum, seriously, God bless you guys. I want everyone to know how awesome you all are! Lets keep this momentum going, share to whoever you can think of, someone far or close. Every person counts.
