My Mother's Story:
This past summer my mother was diagnosed with cancer. At first, doctor's thought her cancer was located in her ovaries, so my mother went into immediate surgery in order to remove them. Just when we thought things were going to get better, we found out that her cancer had actually spread to her lungs, liver and had originated from her gallbladder; she had stage 4 cancer and was given anywhere between a couple of days to a week to live. My family and I stayed by my mom's side at the hospital for a week straight in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). On September 24th, 2013 we all said our good bye's and she passed away.
Before my mom had passed away she made me promise her two things; she told me to return to school and finish my education, as well to take care of my siblings who also deserve a chance to receive an education. My father is self-employed and has been out of work for 3 months now and I can only do so much to help him while I am away at school. I'm hoping to reach out to others over the internet as a last resort until my family and I can get back on our feet.
