Grandma Hawks fight

First I want to say thank you for taking your time to read this! My family and I are very concerned about her well-being. She has been diagnosed with cancer and is getting treated with chemotherapy to beat her cancer. Due to unknown reasons she keeps blacking out, falling, and has not been healthy lately. Recently, she had an episode that landed her in the hospital with a broken neck leaving her ordered to bed rest. The doctors say she is very lucky and someone must have been watching over her for she is not paralyzed from the fall. Also just recently our grandfather passed her husband. However, she is temporarily not mobile; on top of her battle to beat cancer  and to heal from the death of a husband is a struggle. My mother  is caring for her with the help of other family members as well. We are all working hard together to give my grandmother the care she needs. However, her health is not good at the moment and we pray every day for her to live a longer happier life. For those who know her, would tell you she had been a mother to everyone she meets. She is a mother, a grandmother, a great grandmother, a sister, an aunt, a GOD mother, a cousin, and a best friend to all of us. My grandmother has always been and will be a caregiver for strangers, family, and friends. She has achieved a lot in her life and will continue to keep achieving as well. She makes everyone feel like family and never lets you leave her house hungry. My grandmother has always been the first to help anyone in need and she will always have that special quality in her; that’s why we all love her. Unfortunately she is the one in need of help now! I am a firm believer when someone in your family needs your help we should all unite and fight this battle together. We are stronger together and can accomplish more together. That is why we are reaching out to you! My grandmother needs things in her life to make it easier on her. She is sleeping on a mattress that is not fit for her condition, also with no bed rails to prevent her from falling. She also lives in a house with tile floors the ones that when she falls, she breaks bones and gets bruises all over her body. She is on a fixed income; which doesn’t give her more money for chemo treatments. She is struggling with her health and I don’t want her to struggle through financial needs as well. She has to pay for a lot to fight for her life while some people are taking it for granted. She needs things to make her life easier which she cannot afford and we don’t want her to think she is alone in this battle. My grandmother is a fighter, no doubt in my mind, and I have faith in my GOD that she is going to recover! We are reaching out and asking all her friends and family who love her  and anyone who is willing to help that she needs you now! I know my grandmother loves to take care of everyone but now she needs help. We are writing this because she would have never allowed anyone to do this, and may even get upset but I am doing this with her best interest in mind. She needs money so she can get to her doctor’s appointments and receive her chemotherapy. She needs money to pay bills and just to get by. My goal is to alleviate some of the stress with her financial troubles and to allow her to recover with as little worries as possible.  I know you will do what is right in your heart  I have faith in all of you that you will be there for her as well. Thank you again for all your support and love and please feel free to send whatever you can. If we all come together we can make her life easier. Thank you again for reading this and lending a helping hand to REGGIE!
