Help my mom finish her fight against Cancer
Organized by: Monica B
My name is Dammy and my brothers and I are trying to raise funds for my mom (that's her in the picture) who's been fighting stage 4 breast cancer.
Mom is a single mother of three that was working as a secondary school teacher till she was diagnosed in 2014. She had a round of chemotherapy and her surgery and got a clean bill of health till it resurfaced in December 2015.
Everyone rallied around and we were able to get her transfered to Lincoln Hospital where she was immediately placed on a combined Chemotherapy and Radiation treatment plan.
It's been incredibly hard with her being a single mom, me not being around her and my brother juggling school, work and being her primary care giver but mom is a fighter and she's kept at it everyday fighting, living and being a source of inspiration to all of us.
Her doctors are very happy with her response to the treatments which are scheduled to continue till December (we're not sure how much longer after then she would remain in treatment but we're hoping it's all done by then) but all of that is currently being threatened because we've completely exhausted all our sources of help and our collective funds have run low.
It's threatening mom's recovery 'cos we have to worry about her accomodation ($700 monthly), travel to the hospital twice a week (Brooklyn to the Bronx) and feeding (she's been placed on a very restrictive diet).
Making this decision to go public was very hard for all of us (most of all mom 'cos she's a very private person) because we believed we'd be able to handle it on our own but we've tried and we can't.
We have no other choice which is why we're here asking anyone that can, to please help us provide our mom with what she needs so she can fight this disease and go back to doing what she does best - be our mom.
We've opened this account in her name so nothing comes to any of us and everything goes directly to her.
Thank you for giving and sharing this with your friends.
