Mom's healing!

Good news: Mom got her JP drain (a drain for where the surgery occurred) taken out on Friday! Less than good news: Chemo will start in two weeks, See More

THE STORY:

This post is about my mom, Eileen Wetzel, death, poverty, cancer, and 4 ways you can help. 1 year ago, my dad passed away, suddenly, at the age of 59, months after a diagnosis of early onset dementia, likely Alzheimer's. 3 months ago, without the income from my dad's disability, mom moved from the apartment she rented with my dad to a trailer park in Saginaw. 2 months ago, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, HER2 amplified. Today, my mom had a lateral mastectomy. It was a success, one of the few, and she is recovering at Covenant Hospital in Saginaw. This is only the start. She looks to undergo 16 weeks of frightening chemotherapy, multiple procedures, and a likely second mastectomy to prevent the relapsing of the cancer to which she is genetically predisposed. ----- On August 13th, from 4pm-8pm, friends of my mom are holding a benefit, at the Polish Falcons Club in Saginaw. If you would like to help, even if you can't or don't want to give money, here are things you could do: 1. Repost this message. Steal it. Shorten it. Hand it to friends. If you live in, are from, or know someone in Mid-Michigan who has any interest in food, that game where you are a ball, or helping, please get the word out. 2. Attend the benefit. It's $10, a little time, and going to be a really great time. 3. If you can't attend, and don't know where Saginaw is on a map, but would still like to help, please message me. 4. If you can't attend, hate Michigan, and don't want to give, first, thanks for reading this far. I appreciate your caring. Take a moment, literally 10 seconds and please say a quiet prayer for my mom. I know she would appreciate it. TL;DR: friends hold cancer benefit for my mom, spread the word, show up, give, or pray.
