I am starting this fundraiser to help my Dad pay off medical bills from my Moms surgery.She passed away shortly after surgery.Anything helps

I am a mother of 3 children, a wife to a wonderful husband and a daughter to the most loving parents. My mom is the mother to 4 daughters and 1 son. She was the proud grandmother to 12 grandchildren and one on the way. She and my Dad have been married for over 30 years and have always shown a love for each other that I hope to one day experience. She was a magnificent gardener and was always praised for having such a beautiful garden and yard. She loved the outdoors and lived to serve others. Unfortunately my most amazing and dearly loved mother passed away on December 31 2011 from colon cancer. It was very unexpected and we did not even now that she had cancer until after her passing. She was rushed to the hospital because her colon had ruptured. They took her into emergency surgery and she had a 95% chance of making it through. But the toxins from her ruptured colon became sepsis and went into her blood system so by that night the doctors said that she had a 50/50. All of her children and a few other close relatives started making there way by plane and driving to get to her bed side. She held on until we were all surrounding her and her heart stopped. That has been one of her dreams for a while now to have all her children together, so we knew that she was waiting for us to gather around her before leaving this earthly life. The doctors ran tests on tissue that they found while trying to clean out the infection from the burst colon and the tests came back positive for colon cancer. It was a shock to us because only 6 months before her passing she had 4 tests done for cancer because she was having so much pain and problems with her colon. She was only 60. We are all just taking it one day at a time trying to adjust to the huge hole that is being felt from her loss. I have a new conviction to live life to it's fullest and love more fully my family and the people around me. My mother was very strong in her faith and I know that she is happy and in a better place. We miss her so very much. Thank you in advance for helping no matter what the amount! May God bless you in your life.
