Please help our mother, Vivian, with her battle with breast cancer.

My name is Laura Real and I have an older sister, Amy Rodriguez. Vivian Real, our mother, has been battling cancer off and on for the past 4 years. At the end of 2011, she went to the doctor for lower back pain. After trips to the chiropractor and plenty of rest, the pain worsened. With further investigation, they found that she has fractured vertebrae in her lower back caused by breast cancer that has metastasized into her bones. She went through a year’s worth of chemotherapy to be considered in remission in 2012. Later that same year, she was rushed to the hospital after a fall and claims of severe headaches. It was cancer again, yet this time in had metastasized into the brain. She went through 2 years of chemotherapy and radiation after which she was told she was in remission again.  With this news,  
she returned back to work as a teller at  Heritage/ Nixon State Bank where she had worked for many years, even throughout her battle with cancer.

In February 2015, our mother began suffering from severe headaches again. Our worst fears confirmed, she had cancerous tumors in her brain and all bony parts of her body. She endured 7 months of a clinical trial chemotherapy which took a toll on her health. After multiple rounds of cancer, her body couldn’t handle the potent chemo anymore, and was put on hospice in late October. Between the frequent hospital visits and costly cancer treatments, she and her family struggle with her expenses. As her health continues to rapidly decline, we pray for a miracle but must still prepare for the worst.

We would like to provide some peace for her from the staggering bills and ultimately a place of solace. We ask for your help. Any little bit counts, and any donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time!

Mom passed away early Saturday morning. She went peacefully, and we are finding comfort in the fact that she is finally pain free. I want to thank everyone for the kind words and support. It means a lot to us and definitely shows how much she was loved. Unfortunately, as we plan the final details of the funeral, we have found out that her life insurance policy will not be honored. We ask for any help you may be able to provide, as now the funeral expenses fall on the family.
Again, we would like to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you.

Hey friends and family! Some of you may know, but for those that don't, my mother has been battling breast cancer for the past 4 years. She is a fighter, that much I've learned. However, the cancer is winning. As a family, we are struggling with expenses and we ask for any help you may be able to provide. I have started a Go Fund Me to help pay for her expenses. Please take a look and share, as we hope we can spread the message far and wide! We would just like to provide the peace that she deserves, but we need some help. Thanks!
