I am a single mother currently working in China as a teacher. I brought my mom with because she needs care 24/7. Although she is still able to do little things by herself itis getting more moredifficult for her by the day because her heart is very weak. The doctor recommended she needs a pacemaker urgently or her heart might stop completely. I am the only breadwinner in this family and although my family back home gives us a lot of support they cannot help financially.
My mother is 64 and the strongest person I know and in my eyes she Wonder woman. She beat breast cancer in 1999. But unfortunately it was due to the radiation that her heart got damaged.She had heart failure shortly after. She is also struggling with osteoarthritis and lives in dire pain every day but keeps on going. It was becaue of this that she had neck surgery but once again the surgery was not a complete success as the surgeon cut two nerves in her throat which caused swallow paralisis. She cannot swallow except for liquids. She struggled to convince specialists that she could not swallow and struggled like this for four years. At last a GP listened and realized she was speaking the truth and had a tube inserted into her stomach. This is not a normal feeding tube because by then my mother was on the verge of starvation and her whole body was to weak to have proper surgery. Some nurses and doctors could not believe that she was still alive because she was litterally just a skeleton with skin on. She is 176cm tall and weighed only 28 kg. She has no body fat not even around her organs which makes her even more fragile.
She is strong, compasionate and we as a family still needs her. I know she will be around for a few more years if she can get this surgery and the sooner the better because she is getting weaker by the day.
Please help my mother to get this life saving surgery.
