Our Mother, Penny, has spent many weeks in the hospital since her diagnosis of cancer last year. We (her four children) are trying to raise money for expenses and a potential funeral.

Our Mom, Penny, has spent many weeks in the hospital since her diagnosis of cancer last year.  We (her four children) are trying to raise money for expenses and a potential funeral. 

Three of us moved several states away from her three years ago with our Dad.  This was a move that we all agreed was best for us although living so far away from our Mom was a hard decision to make. 

During those three years, our Mom has been able to visit us several times.  Her stays would last from 2 to 5 weeks and we loved having that time with her.  It was never enough, but we always cherished our time together.  When our Mom was diagnosed with cancer, she became unable to travel to see us because of her treatments.  We were not able to travel to see her because of our schedules.    

On July 25th, our Mom became very ill and it looked as if she wouldn't make it.  We dropped everything and traveled all day to get to her, not sure if this would be our last moments with her or not.  The first two days were rough and then she started to stabilize and feel a little better.  We were able to talk to her, tell her we love her and even play games with her.  She is still in the hospital now and the four of us haven't left her side.  However, expenses are starting to mount. 

We are staying with our Dad in a place near the hospital and have to pay to stay there and for our food.  We are faced with the difficult decision of staying with our Mom or leaving her here to possibly die.  The end looks inevitable, but we have no real timeframe.  We want to spend as much time with her as we can, but we know that the costs will eventually not allow us to stay any longer and we will need money to get back home.  If we do leave, we will likely have to travel back again for a funeral for which we also have no funds.  We are asking for donations so that we can spend as much time with her as possible before school starts and so that we can give her a proper funeral if it comes to that.  Thank you for considering a donation. 

 

Sincerely,

Paige, Summer, Garrett and Timothy
