I've always looked at my mom as an amazing woman. She's good at everything she does, resilient, and all powerful. For me she is that incredible, but of course she's my MOM.
My mother was the eldest of 3 kids, born from an equally incredible and strong woman. She was beloved by both her parents and was raised like a princess. And just like any other typical telenovela plot, she fell in love, got pregnant at 18, then fell from grace.
From then on it was challenge after challenge, trials after trials, and struggles after struggles. She had 4 of us, yet she managed to raise us into well-rounded human beings.
My Mom went through thick and thin just to do right by us. When me and my brother recently graduated, we planned that it was about time that we started taking over some burden from our Mom. But then.. tragedy struck. She was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer Stage 2B. What she has was a rare kind of cervical CA that needs invasive and aggressive fast treatments to contain and cure, otherwise it will spread so fast. When she was diagnosed, she was only Stage 1B and 2 weeks after, her tumor grew twice its size that she progressed to Stage 2B.
My MOM is the light and compass of our lives. We want to take care of her now. We want her to live the good life she deserves. But she needs to LIVE first. Please help us SAVE our MOM. She never asked help through all the years of struggle and sacrifices. It's about time, that we lend her a hand to show her that the world is not against her. That there are people who know how to love and share. Not all things are bad. here is always HOPE if we just reach out and pray and ask for it.
