Thank you to everyone who has given to my mom. Your kindness and generosity have me in tears, the love and support that is pouring out from the community has been amazing. My mom has truly touched the lives of many with her strong spirit and her determination.
Mom is a fighter and is keeping her spirits up. She has begun treatment and tells me of the new technology that is being used to directy target her tumor. We have great hope that she will recover. She is receiving excellent medical care and is also under the guidance of a Naturopathic physician who is helping her understand what supplements to take to balance the effects of the radiation and chemo. She is challenging herself to juice daily and eat an anti cancer diet (basically plant based). If you are in the Portland area and want ot set up a visit let me know and we can coordinate something.
If you'd like to send a donation directly to Mom you can do so by making the check out to James Gillespie (my brother is the acting administrator on the account and will be paying her bills through the account). Be sure to note on the check that it is a donation to Jere Gillespie's Medical Fund and mail it to:Jere and Rick Gillespie340 NW Maywood DrivePortland, OR 97210
Thank you and blessings.
