This fundraiser was made for our mother Trisha, who has been diagnosed with stage 3 lymphoma cancer.

At age 43, my mother Trisha has been through it all and back. From a big divorce, moving twice, a decline in her self employed business and my little sister graduating highschool, we struggeled with money and soon ended up living in the inlaw basement apartment at my nanas. My mom swore there was nothing worse that could happen. It was a huge decline in life, not knowing what direction to turn next.

WELL , About 2 months ago my mom my diagnosed with stage 3 lymphoma cancer. After having a pet scane, the doctors had told her she had been living with the cancer for about 3 years and it has grown throughout her whole body. The lumps had formed into clusters. Not only was is a huge impact on my mom, but very hard on my family, my little sister, and i. She is being treated in Boston,MA , at Dana Faber Cancer Institue. Her chemotheropy is going a little ruff, and she is constantly sick.

Between chemo costs, 11 different medications each cycle of chemo, transportation costs, parking, doctor co pays, and every day living because she is self employed it has been really difficult trying to battle this cancer. Mind you allot of the medical costs where not covered with insurance.

With all this said, my sister and i are trying to raise money for all of my moms medical costs and help her live day by day stress free.

Our family as well as our mother would prefer checks or money orders to be sent directly to her at:
Trisha M Tortolani (Trishas Cure)
