Hello, my name is Amelia Elsmusen a mother of 4 children, 3 boys and 1 girl. Me and my husband are working together as an agricultural worker here in North Dakota. I have decided to make this campaight as I was asking help from a friend of mine and she told me about this website. My oldest son John Andrew Elsmusen, has been secretly vaping with his friends for atleast 2 years now. I didn't even know about this until 2 weeks ago he had some troubles breathing and we hurriedly rushed him to the hospital. After hours and days of waiting the doctor said that our son has acquired lung cancer through vaping and is now under treatment. But just now the infection in his lungs has been severe the doctor said a surgery is needed to save his life to prevent lung cancer. I don't want my son to die as he is just turning 18 on August. That's why I made this campaign that my friend suggested for me to do in order to ask help to those people who have good hearts who are willing to help someone like my son who is currently suffering right now from an ilness due to wrong decisions in life. We are not rich and the surgery cost a lot and we can't afford it. We could get some loan but it would cost us a lot when it comes to the time that we need to pay. I don't ask for much but if some could help then that would really help me, my husband, my son and my family a lot. I don't have much to say as I am crying typing this message right now because I see this as a hope for my son. Thank you very much for your understanding.
