This event is a serious request for help raising money so that I may travel and aid my Mother who has been diagnosed with Stage4 Bone Cancer

My Name is Joslyn Dillwood. I'm the only daughter of Marvin Dillwood and Anita Baden. I was born and raised in a very loving home in Lincoln, NE. When I was 21 I moved to Austin in hopes of a music career. I'm currently still residing in Austin working for an online marketing company that allows me much flexibility with my position.

Recently my mother was diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer after having been diagnosed with stage2b lung cancer. We only discovered the additional cancer after she had a piece of her lower left lung removed.

I need assistance to travel back and forth to help support my mother during her battle. I don't know if people come to aid of someone such as myself in a position where I myself am not the cancer patient, but I thought this would at least be worth a try. I'll be putting a youtube account together where I will be taking song request, prefer that the requests comes with a donation as well.

Anything is worth trying. Again, I've limited funds but flexibility with my full time remote job and need assistance getting home to take care of mom. I've 3 dogs that aren't able to be at the house where my mother lives, due to her illness and space restrictions. My goal is to afford for myself and my three dogs to travel and live remotely in NE, so that I may assist my mother.

This will require monetary or a physical donation of a boarding space that will allow us all to stay together.

I look to you in faith that as individuals, we can pull together to help not only myself but the greater whole as so many of us have been stricken with family illnesses, inability to be two places at 1 time and living on limited resources. Pay it forward to me and I will pay it forward to the world.
