After 12 surgeries, battling breast cancer last year, my fighting mother will undergo another surgery this year. Please show your support!

In this world there are individuals who light up a room as they walk in. I'm blessed to call one of them my mother.

My mother has had over 12 surgeries, overcame a staph infection and battled breast cancer. Her hardships have not crushed her optimistic spirit. It is her spirit that defines her. For those who know her personally, she is genuinely caring, charismatic, and hilarious.

Her last chemotherapy was in September 2011. Her battle did not end there. She is still taking hormonal therapy to prevent relapse for the next 5 years. This therapy has sped up a health issue we were unaware of. With multiple doctor visits, pharmaceuticals, this unexpected surgery will take quite a toll on my mom, emotionally and financially.

My mother's surgery will be on November 20. She will be out of work for 6 weeks. The insurance, though it helps, does not pay for all expenses. I want to raise funds to help my mom. Any help will mean a lot for my mom and my family! Prayers of course are always needed!

Her battle with cancer was by far one of the hardest to witness. Last year, though difficult, left us with life lessons: appreciate health, value family and rely on faith. The greatest lesson my mom has given me and others is the love of God.

God Bless,

Laura
