To raise some partial support cash to help pay for my mom's ongoing battle with lung cancer. the medical cost arent covered by insurance

"There's been a change in Mom's condition, she isn't doing well," said my sister during the call that came as I was getting ready for work seven and a half weeks ago, the morning of March 7th, 2012 . A call we'd all been anticipating but hoping would not come for some time yet. A call followed by one of my own informing my boss that I wouldn't be in because I was heading to St Louis. A call I'd warned her just the day before I'd be making sometime in the near future as the gradual deterioration in my mother's condition continued. The first of several such calls, as it turned out .. dying is not a predictable process. The final call came during the late afternoon of April 25th, 2012, summoning me there.
Now for these past 4 months, my mother is goin blind and her complications have gotten worse..

This wonderful woman is my most respected mother. She was beautiful and still is, and I'm grateful to be her son. She has raised my sister and I as a single parent ever since 1977, and we all struggled to survived society together and our poor yet happy life.
She's been diagnosed since july 29th, 2009... and from there she hasnt gotten continuous treatments due to our income (I work as a cook at chilis), We are in a 20k debt due to her last previous chemo sessions, and that doesnt include hospital bills

her savings have been emptied out and her retirement money has all been contributed on her long term battle

We dont ask for much, we just need support and help to make the process of her treatments a little more care-free and smooth.. Her life expectancy is about a year more,but i'll do everything i can and provide everything i can to keep extending that because she deserves to live the happy kind of wholesome life that she's given me before.
