My mother & best friend was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer and needs your help. Please donate to help our cause!

My Mom, who's my best friend, was recently diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. She was our only household income because I've been dealing with my own medical conditions; including severe depression, anxiety, various back problems, etc. and recently I was kidnapped for 2 days and raped at knife point.

To make things worse, a nurse gave unqualified advice which led to the most horrifying thing imaginable; my mom cut her wrists so severely that she required surgery to repair the cut tendons and arteries. Finally, she started feeling better...Until our next barrier! Her oncologist required her to see a psychiatrist before he would continue her chemotherapy. After spending weeks trying to find a therapist who'd take her medical card, with no luck, the doctor wouldn't budge. Luckily, while in California for Christmas our family got a psychiatrist to see my mom and he immediately wrote the letter to her doctor. However, by now it has been 6 weeks since her first/last chemo and she's starting to get really sick again.

We have already borrowed from friends and family and applied for various financial assistance, however, most assistance takes time to get accepted and we have run out of money. I'm barely sleeping 30 hours a week because I've spent every day looking for a job, with no luck yet. My mom is constantly worrying about the bills and money, but all I can do is wait and hope for a miracle! Any help is greatly appreciated!
