**UPDATE**
My mom is now staying temporarily with me in Monterey. Unfortunately, our house is very full and she's going to be staying at a friend's spare room for $150 a week starting in a few days. Any cash we raise right now will go toward that rent until we can find her a job.

My mom, Maura, recently had serious surgery to remove several tumors from her abdomen. She quit smoking half a year before her cancer diagnosis was reached.

She is now a non-smoker trying to get back on her feet, but her current expenses are extreme and she's currently living in a week-to-week hotel room with no kitchen, poor ventilation, and and ant infestation. To make matters worse, she's finding it nearly impossible to find a job.

My mom raised five kids pretty much on her own. She spent her entire young life taking care of my siblings and I! She loves dogs, children, and all kinds of animals. She has a big heart, and helped make me the person I am today! Anything you can give will go straight to getting my mom back on her feet again.

* The first couple hundred bucks will go to getting my mom into a better living situation. It's tough to be healthy when you don't have a fridge, or a place to cook and eat a good meal!

* After that, the money will be used to pay her current medical expenses - including medication costs, regular doctor's appointments and health screenings, etc.

* All excess money will go to the American Cancer Society!

* I do want to note that my mom has been cleared as CANCER-FREE, but she has to get regular screenings to make sure the cancer doesn't return!
