Mom's Heart Battle
Organized by: Janine Turvey
My name is Jackie Turvey, and I'm the youngest daughter of my mom, the one who is also creating this page. When I was 12 I had Cancer and she was always there for me, so needless to say, she's my best friend. She has been thru so much in the past five years alone. She is a 6 time Cancer survivor, and she kicked them all in the ass. Just recently ( like the the last 3-4 weeks) she was having some major heart issues and it was hard for her to breathe. We went to the ER where she was admitted for three days. They were at least able to get some of the testing done in order to figure out what the problem is. The news is not good unfortunately. She has to have open heart surgery, she needs her Mitral and Aortic valves replaced. The doctor, when he gave the results (NO Bedside Manner AT ALL) said that she has to have the procedure, if not she could just come home and maybe have two years left of life, and for me that's unacceptable. So I really hate to bother and pity or even beg other people, but the majority of the situation is falling on my shoulders. Rent, utilities, food, prescriptions. All of this on a part time job, I'm beginning to unravel somewhat, and asking the kind, big hearted people of the world please help my mother and I. Anything would be a blessing from $1 to $100 dollars would make all the difference in the world, and you did your good deed for the day and it's a great cause.
