June 5, 2009, my beloved mother was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. This fund is set up to help her receive the treatment she deserves.

When my mom was diagnosed with Lung Cancer, it came as a shock to all of us. She had never smoked a cigarette in her life and was considered a very healthy woman. When they detected the cancer in her body, it had already spread from her lung to her spine and brain. She was given 3-6 months to live.
That was almost 3 years ago.
For those of you who don't know my mother, she is a fighter. She is a beast. She is the glue that holds our family together. She is a grandmother of 13. She is beautiful, inside and out, and she means everything to us. She is my best friend.
So, naturally, when she was recently chosen to attend a trial study in NYC to rid her body of this crippling disease, my family and I stepped up, financially, to help get her there.
Her medical bills are stacking up and her treatment and living expenses have tapped most of us out. We are in need of some help to keep her in this ground-breaking treatment that might save her life.
Money donated through this site will be deducted 7% for processing and then the rest will go directly to helping my mother afford her treatments.
