Hello friends,

As many of you know, my mother has been recently diagnosed with cancer, as well as an degenerative autoimmune condition (a rare form of myositis). We have been on an extreme roller coaster. Her situation got serious quickly. Doctor said she had no chance of remission and we were all preparing for the worst. She responded to chemo and other treatments for the myositis remarkably well! She is now unexpectedly a candidate first surgery but we are not yet Out of the Woods.


Her surgery is on the 25th of June and then she has two weeks of recovery minimum. I need to stay with her through as much of this as I can.


Mom is handling it, as well as can be expected, but we both need the support of being with each other. 

I need to cover my own expenses. Travel Salt Lake City, Utah (where she has been back and forth between the hospital and patient house for a couple month).

I'm doing everything that I can to cut corners including staying in patient and family housing which is not great for my health. I also need to rent a car at times because of commuting. I have to cover over a month's worth of housing $1,400. Fights and ground transport $1000. 

A few people have said that they would prefer to donate directly through PayPal or check to avoid the fees of this  fundraising sites. If so you're welcome to PayPal me at, or donations through squarecash/cash app me at $curtislwalker. Feel free to text me or send me a message by Facebook Messenger for my mailing address. Airline miles also much appreciated! Also in search of a loner tablet, iPad or laptop so that I can photo edit while traveling. 
Thanks everyone for your support!
Fat hugs,
