My moms story (in the short):
My mom, Susan Ruggles has been diagnosed and currently fighting high grade stage III, Inflammatory Breast Cancer. She is only 49 yrs old and has been undergoing aggressive chemo treatments and has about 12 more to go before going into surgery. She will then go into radiation treatments after that. After getting an infection which caused a minor set back with continueing her treatments we are back on track and are continueing the fight! Despite a very long and exhausting road ahead of her, she remains positive and still manages to provide the world with her beautiful smile. Unfortunately, due to this diagnosis, she has been unable to work for the past 2 months and this circumstance does not appear to be changing anytime soon. Our family has been helping with bills, food etc but it is becoming extremely difficult to absorb the extra expense. As much as we would like to be able to handle this the whole way through unfortunately, in our situation, it is just not the case.
What will these donations go for?
In addition to her bills that don't stop coming and the food expenses, she also has a broken vehicle sitting in her driveway. It broke just after her diagnosis and if and when she is ready to go back to work or is able to do simple things like go to the store alone, she has no means of transportation. This is something that sits heavily on my moms mind and to her, is another thing to worry about. Due to her not working, she obivously does not have the means to fix it. I would LOVE to help her and eliminate some things off of her plate. This way she can focus more on her treatments and getting better! I cannot change her health and so I want to help change what I can. Please HELP! Any donation of any amount is hugely appreciated!!!!! I cannot express enough how grateful and how much this would mean to our family. Thank you for your consideration.
