This is the help my Mom get better fund. The funds will be used to help her with medical cost and medicine as she has no insurance.

My mom is a single mother now unemployed because of cancer. she has no insurance. Since Sept. 2010 she has been diagnosed with chronic systolic heart failure, coronary heart disease, insulin dependent diabetes, and now this cancer. Through out all these medical issues her main concern is her children. I honestly believe my mom would get better if she didn't have to worry about her financial situation, how she was going to get her medicine and take care of us at the same time. As it stands, she takes care of us first and goes without some of her medicine. Thats when I heard of this website and thought it wouldn't hurt to try. Please pass this site along to all of your face book friends.And please listen to the video, it says it all!


IN MY MOMS WORDS

For those who don't know me, I am a 44 year old single mother.
After 26 yrs of marriage, my husband and I seperated and I moved into a rental house in November, I went to school for my CNA and began working. This was very hard as I had been a stay at home, homeschooling mother for many years. Things were looking up, we were all happy. Until...on December I ended up in the e/r needing an emergency gallbladder surgery. On December 27th, I received a phone call from my surgeon, asking how I was doing and sadly he must inform me that I had tested positive for cancer. As the song says, I fell to my knees, From that point on in my life, each day of my life was filled with Dr's appointments and test I never even knew existed to man. What I learned was that this was a very rare cancer. A cancer that my doctor called a POLITICALLY INCORRECT CANCER. Only 3 percent of Americans are diagnosed with it and of those only 14 percent are able to have the life prolonging surgery, because by the time this cancer is found...it is usually to late. My cancer was staged at a stage 3. It had passed through the gallbladder and into the lymph nodes.
Through all my friends and family's thoughts and prayers, I had been blessed. I was a candidate for the surgery. Stage 3 not 4. Thank God!
On January 30th 2012 I had that surgery. In layman's terms, they removed a part of my liver and surround lymph nodes. After a week in the hospital, they released me home because I was developing pneumonia and they thought I would heal better at home.
5 weeks later I had a power port implanted and began chemotherapy. One of my closest friends told me that the surgery was gonna be the easy part. I thought she was totally insane. Yet she was right. This chemotherapy is the hardest thing In life I've had to endure...especially with being a single mother.
I try each day to find something positive to meditate on, I try not to think about the bills or my house having been foreclosed on, instead I meditate on the fact that my youngest is 9 years old. He needs his mommy and his mommy needs him!!
Those who know me, know I am a proud person. Asking for help is a very difficult thing for me. Yet at this time, taking care of my health and children would humble the most proudest of people.
I would like to end this by thanking those from the bottom of my heart for those that have helped, physically, financially and emotionally. Words cannot express my gratitude and I believe in my heart that good will follow you all your days. Please continue to pray and keep me in your thoughts. IT HAS GOTTEN ME THIS FAR!
Again, Thank you,
Much love
