My name is Siddiq and I am starting this gogetfunding page on behalf of my mother (Rohani) who is battling with Stage 4 Colon Cancer.
Last May, my family was shocked and devastated to found out that my mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer. What started off as a severe abdominal pain turns out to be her biggest nightmare that was about to change our lives forever. A few weeks later after we received the colonoscopy result, my mother went into surgery to remove the tumor but unfortunately the operation did not went well and as of now, my mother is getting accustomed to living with a colostomy bag which we replace on a daily basis. The first few months was some of the worst experience as my mom was in terrible pain & the doctors were trying their best to make sure that my mom was fully stable & ready for the next stage of treatment.
The next worst thing happened when we were told by the doctor that the cancerous cell has spread to the liver after that recent check-up. It was a truly shocking news because none of our family members has ever had this disease. My mom was a retired nurse and she has served the country for the most of her life. She has always been known to be well and active as she took a really good care of her diet. Back when she was fitter and healthier, she was always spending time attending classes & getting involved in helping other people. Despite being sick & losing over 20 pounds after getting through her first surgery, she braved herself and sat for an exam just a few weeks after that.
There can never be any words to describe how painful it is to see my mother go through this journey but we are thankful that a lot of our family members & friends has come together and showed my mother their love and support. Her determination and strength has given us hope that she can get through this and be part of an array of cancer survivors.
The doctors have decided to not proceed with any surgery since my mom is already in her 60's and there was a lot of health-related risk involved. As of now, my mom is currently undergoing chemotherapy and is about to enter her fourth cycle. The chemotherapy was scheduled on a bi-weekly basis and I would be with my mom throughout her stay at the hospital. The funds received will be used for transportation costs, food, medical & health care professionals, & drugs & treatments that are not covered by the government. I am struggling to make ends meet since I've only just graduated and have not got a proper job but I know I will never let my mother endure all of this hardship.
Your donation and prayers are deeply appreciated & will forever be cherished. Cancer was never an easy journey. If you are reading this, I pray that you will never have to go through what we're going through.
