Hello everyone :) Before I tell you why we're raising funds, let me tell you a little bit about my mom. She's in her forties, she loves gardening and karaoke, and she's the most genuine and selfless person you could ever meet. My mom started from very humble beginnings; some of the major challenges she had to face include having to juggle studies and work and then having to raise us, her two kids, mostly by herself (it's really complicated).
I'm sharing this story because before 2018 ended, my mom got diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. The news, of course, deeply devastated all of us.
Cancer treatment, especially for the late stages, can be really expensive. Mom's health insurance has long run out and I can't contribute much to medical bills as I occupy an entry-level position at a firm (I had just earned my license when mom got diagnosed). My family resorted to this fundraiser because we don't want our mom to stop her weekly treatment.
Ever since her diagnosis, mom has restricted her diet to healthy food. She's been getting a lot of sunlight and has been following her doctor's orders. My mom has always been a fighter and she's committed to getting better. It would mean the world to me and my family if you could help us.
Like any other kid out there, we just want to have enough time to give back to the person who gave the world for us.
From the bottom of our hearts, my little brother and I thank you :)
