THE STORY:

In September 2015 my mom was diagnosed with Pancreas Cancer which for anyone who knows is a death sentence. Being a very positive person she chose not to tell me right away so I found out in October. She and her boyfriend have always been very private as well. What makes this even more difficult is that they live out on the West Coast and I am in Central Canada so I felt completely helpless. Being so far away and not knowing what was happening was very challenging so in November I drove out there and spent 5 days visiting them. I’m glad I did because things were much worse than they were letting on. My mom had been going for chemotherapy and her energy was completely depleted and her boyfriend looked exhausted as well. I returned home a week later and within a few days of being home I received a call that her boyfriend wasn’t feeling well and started slurring his words. He seen the doctor and was diagnosed with a tumor on his brain. He immediately started radiation. So things went from bad to worse. It is just the two of them there and there is no family support. My mom has been a bartender her entire life and her boyfriend a drywaller and so together they have no benefits and if they don’t work, they have next to no income. I want to do everything I can to take care of them and have been sending them what little money I have but it’s just not enough. Without it they could end up on the streets and their both so ill, no one should ever have to spend their final days living that way
