Still in the Fight: Mom's One Year Breast Cancer Update

My Mom, Grandma, and Aunt Estelle

Over a year ago, on August 2nd, 2018 my Mom, Carol, was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, Stage 3c Breast Cancer. This past year, Mom’s been fighting for her life as she has gone through surgery, radiation, and almost two rounds of chemo therapy. After months of treatment, she's weary and tired with still no end in sight.

On top of everything else, my Mom has continued to be my Grandma’s full-time caregiver. With each passing year, my Grandma gets worse and worse as her Alzheimer’s condition advances. In the past few months, it’s become very apparent that my Mom needs to begin to transition my Grandma’s care to someone else. We’re so thankful for God’s provision in this area, because my Mom and her sister were able to find a nursing home for my Grandma. In a little over one week, my Grandma will move into her new home. As you can imagine, my Mom is busy making all the necessary arrangements as Grandma gets ready to transition to her new home.

When Grandma transitions to a nursing home, Mom will lose her main source of income as a caregiver. With her living alone, she will be responsible for paying all of her medical and household expenses. In the coming weeks, Mom is going to need financial help.

If you are able, please donate to Mom’s GoFund Me to help with her extra expenses. Thank you for trying to help relieve some of this current burden. Click here to donate now.
