six days left! donors, please send me your mailing adress so that i can send you a christmas card as a thank you for your generosity. the sooner the better, but i would need them by the 21st. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. and if you havent donated, please do so asap!
my mom had her first chemotherapy treatment last friday. check out her update video now up!
at my moms last doctor visit, the doctor informed her that her health has improved across the board. shes lost more weight and it looks like the removal of the tumor has improved the effectiveness of her thyroid gland. my mom has type two diabetes as well, but hopefully if she recovers from cancer after these treatments and keeps improving, she may be able to get off medication altogether.
with the money youre donating, we will be able to pay her property tax, get her new dentures which, besides its cosmetic benefits, will allow her to get the nurtrition she needs to better fight this cancer, and finally, will allow us to help her pay her out of pocket costs.
i want to thank those that donated, but we have only raised $640 so far. we need almost $3000 to make a serious dent. as such, weve extended the deadline to december 21st.
so please, those who have donated, if you can donate more, its appreciated. if you know people who can help, tell them our story, share this with everyone, so we can raise as much as we can. thanks again and happy thanksgiving!
weve extended our deadline to encourage others to give. the new deadline is december 21, 2013. please help if you can!
moms getting a port installed thursday, which should allow easier acces for docs to start her chemo treatment in the next few weeks. shes expected to have three chemo sessions followed by a few weeks of radiation therapy. shes pretty postive so were all hopeful.
i want to thank everyone who has donated and shared our story with others. my mom is my dad's primary caregiver and while they are lucky enough to own their home outright, it is modest and they still have enough expenses that would be daunting for even people of middle class means, so your donations mean the world to her. please give whatever you can and thanks to those who have helped!
we just found out that my mom's cancer has spread. doctors think that with chemo and radiation therapy she should recover, but needless to say, we're all still pretty concerned. thanks to all our sponsors. please share our story and help in whatever way you can.
ive increased our goal amount to take into account additional expenses incurred from property taxes that are difficult for her to manage giving her health and financial situation. please give what you can!
