THE STORY:

Hi thank you for taking this time to read my note. This is personal to me as I was a caregiver to my mother when she fought her own battle with cancer. She was diagnosed with Diffuse Gastric Cancer - stage IV last year May 2014 and her fight was over on August 8, 2014 at the young age of 55. Coping without my mother has been a real challenge for all of us close to her.

Cancer has no bias, it sees us all the same and the sad fact that we can't help our loved ones as they suffer simply evokes feelings of anger, despair, and frustration. The feeling of being helpless has never been so real to me. I'm a person who innately and genuinely loves helping people and not being able to help especially my own beautiful mother...angered and depressed me. So starting now, I look forward to not standing in the sidelines, fighting back and giving it a good run.

Currently, there is no cure for stomach cancer and the only early detection method is endoscopy and colonoscopies which usually happen when it’s too late. The symptoms are not as obvious because they’re common problems everyone experiences which make it less likely to detect early. The current method to lower your chances of stomach cancer is removing your stomach, not very fun.

So I ask for your help to raise money to go into research for a cure. My hopes are that we can exceed this goal and make a real difference and wipe this putrid cancer off the face of the Earth. Especially considering that we come from such a big city I know we can make a difference! Thank you.
