Paradise, Suzanna Style

I'd like to tell you a story about a star. She shone as bright as the northern star. Her beauty was breathtaking, and her wit, class, and heart were unmeasurable. Her name was SUZANNA LEIGH and this incredible woman with strength and fabulousness was my Mum. 

I lost her on Monday, December 11. My warrior and my heart died at 5:30PM, on her terms. It was time for JESUS to take her home.

I would like to take a moment and clarify something that would be very important for my mum and she would want the world to know. Although she was diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer that was NOT the cause of her death. Sadly, and with great frustration, it was a duodenal bleed from an artery that was difficult to control that took her from this world.

She received her cancer diagnosis in September 2016 and she was given 6-months to live. As you can see, she nearly tripled that timeframe thanks to Dr. Eldar and Dr. Behani and the wonderful team at Celebrity Medical Center. They gave me the gift of more time with my Mum; and it was quality time, not borrowed time. My mum was incredibly thankful to them and had the opportunity to praise them just two days before we lost her.

The world will forever be a little less light & magical. And my life has now and will be forever changed. I personally died a little on Monday as she was my everything and I will never be the same.

Thank you to all who have been a part of this journey, alongside Mum and myself. We are nearing the end as the last of the medical bills are dripping in. A total of $560 is now left to pay off on Mum's remaining bills.
Any amount, is greatly appreciated. It's a times like these, when the heavy burden weighs on my heart along with my grief.
It's incredible to think, that she's been gone a whole month already. Yet, the pain and missing of her is still so fresh. Not a day goes by when I don't think of her, miss her and crave her presence in my day to day life. I'm forever changed.

Thank you all again..and again for your help and support.

This is a bitter-sweet post to share for Suzanna's daughter Natalia, as it most likely will be the last.
Firstly: she'd like to thank-everyone who kindly and so generously donated to a wonderful cause that was making a difference! SUZANNA was actively fighting her Cancer due to your help & support.
Unfortunately, Natalia is left with one or two medical bills that are in need of help.
She humbly asks as we approach the 'season of giving & kindness' to donate to this fund before she closes it in January 2018.
'With a heavy and broken heart I lost the love of my life on Monday, 11th December at 5:36PM so quickly. I'll do my best Mum to make you proud in my lifetime'
~Natalia
Merry Christmas to you all and Thankyou.

Thank-you to everyone for their messages of love & prayers. Today was as scary & big as I anticipated. Mum was admitted into the hospital Friday due to complications of not responding favorably to her 2-blood transfusions. Last night {SATURDAY} she started bleeding out and she had a risky GI scope procedure to trouble shoot the bleed and fix it. Unfortunately, due to her frailty and she was fully put out due to the nature of her symptoms she did go into cardiac arrest and they performed CPR for a couple of minutes. As a daughter you can only imagine hearing those words and processing the seriousness of the situation. She came back {Thank you Jesus} but they found blood clots in her lungs which is why now she's currently intubated and on a ventilator. We are back in ICU and she's being heavily monitored.
I ask for prayers, for peace, for kindness and wisdom as I now travel along this road alongside her. The days ahead bring a lot of travel and juggling with my work. Therefore, if you feel in your heart inclined to donate to her fund for gas and obviously assist with the medical expenses, I thank you..humbly and truthfully.
