Help My Mom Become a Cancer Survivor
Organized by: Teresa Roberts
Hello my name is Teresa and my mom was just recently diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. We found out that she's had it for some time because it has spread to her lymph node under her left arm pit and it is growing at a rapid speed. I'm scared to death of losing her and she is very scared also we have tried everything but unfortunately nothing is working to get her transportation. She has surgery soon and we have no way of getting her there or to her chemo treatments that are going to be twice a week for two months then another surgery then radiation every day. We desperately need transportation she can't beat it if she's not given the opportunity too.
My mother is a wonderful kind woman that has been rescuing cats for years. She's scared of what will happen to her cats and no one will or can help unless we pay them.When I was diagnosed with Chiari she said she would do anything for my daughter and myself and she's been through so much helping me. I had to stop working, so I can only do so much to help her with bills . My car was our only transportation but I had to get a loan on it to help with her bills and my medical care, but I had to surrender my car because I couldn't pay anymore with supporting my mom and my daughter. We have no family where we live and sadly our town is small so there's no public transportation or taxi service which we couldn't afford if there was any. My moms doctors are 30 minutes to an hour away and when we can't find a way to get her to her appointments we usually have to pay $20.00 for them to take her. She's starting to give up because of not being able to get to appointments. I've run out of options, we are most likely going to lose our house, the bills are stacking up, our electricity might get shut off, and we can't afford to take care of the cats that she's rescued. She can't fight this if she's scared that we could lose anything because of her condition, she cries every day and at 70 she needs to be optimistic and not worry about how she's going to get her medicine or if we can get her to her next chemotherapy treatment. I'm begging please help, we all want to take care of our parents and know that we did everything we could to keep them safe and healthy. Her happiness is everything to me and she can't fight this if she thinks her cancer is hurting us financially . She has had a very hard life , she was a victim of physical abuse for many years and I just want to give her a break from a hard life so she can focus on fighting this and getting better. We have to beg people to drive her to her appointments, to get groceries, and to take her to the hospital when she's in too much pain. People are taking advantage of her and I and we have no choice but to let them just so we can get our bills paid and to keep her alive. You have to be born and raised here before anyone or the churches will help you, and we were nof. Basically I'm asking for help to get a vehicle to get her to her treatments and Doctor appointments and help with other medical expenses. Please help me keep my mother alive.
