Stage 4 melanoma - help to save my mom
Organized by: Lauren Elizabeth
My mother was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma cancer 4 years ago. She has had three surgeries and two extended stays in the hospital. However, the cancer is still spreading. She is the strongest and most courageous person I have ever encountered. Her will to live is incredibly strong. She has had many sleepless nights filled with tears and being sick. My family is heartbroken.
She was recently given the option to receive one last chemo treatment or to live out the rest of her life without the side effects of chemo. She has decided to try to the chemo in hopes to live as long as possible to meet her grandchildren and watch her own children continue to grow.
I would like to raise money so that I can bring her to the best cancer center and find additional treatments that may be out there. I would also like to pay for a family trip. She has only been on vacation one time when she was 16 and talks about traveling often. I know if would mean the world to her and lift her spirits to take a vacation.
Please help me save a life and help me give my mother a relaxing family vacation.
I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
