This is my mom Pam she is in the ICU in critical condition with respiratory failure do to pneumonia. Needing to heal to have surgery on her kidney to remove the cancer. She has a long road to recovery. We need your help. More ...

Pam has been fighting Follicular Lymphoma . This is her 4th time with the same cancer. During this time she was also diagnosed with Basil Cell Carcinoma. That was completely removed and three days later was her appointment with her oncologist. That day we found out her Follicular Lymphoma is in remission, yet the mass in her left kidney that was suspected to be Lymphoma had grown and was found to be Renal Cell Carcinoma. She will now see a urologist and faces the removal of her left kidney. Three different cancers in 5 months. :(

The first 3 times she had cancer, she worked full time as a barber and owned her own shop. Took care of her very ill husband at home, raised a daughter and helped raise two granddaughters at her shop when they were babies. And still had time for her passion which is volunteering her time as a 4H leader teaching dog classes and small animals since 1995.

Median survival rate for her type of cancer is 10 years. Overall survival rate though is 5 years. Pam has been fighting this off and on for 9 to 10 years. The first time she was diagnosed she was told she had six yrs to live. She told the doctor I will fight thru this and live to be 100. The Dr shook his head in disbelief.

Today three Lymphoma recurrences and chemotherapy treatments and 9 yrs later this spunky warrior still fights. This time it will take two types of chemo which really wipes her out. Yet she still says she is fighting the good fight and will win the hard battle against cancer to live past her goal of 100 yrs old. 

She makes jewelry, crochets and loves to repurpose and refurbished furniture as extra ways to suppliment her income. She can no longer stand for hours cutting hair. But she still loves to cut hair for family and friends. Demands laughter and fun at all times and loves her kids, grandkids and friends and pets with all her heart.

The costs of her medications have gone up since the first of the year. Her 30 year old car is dying and has been worked on numerous times. She depends on this car to get to treatments and shopping. Help is needed in many areas.

All contributions will be used for medical treatment, travel expenses, medications, recovery necessitates. And if we raise enough a newer vehicle for her transportation. 

Thank-you for your love, prayers, thoughts, help and donations. Blessings to you all.
