A last big send off before my Mum meets her Angels.
A few month back My amazing, incredible and brave mother was diagnosed with Terminal Cancer. In 2014 my mum had beem diagnosed with breast cancer after experiencing pain in her breast. She had 2 tumors in her Breast and it was also in her Lynth nodes under her arm. After 1 lot of Radio Therapy, 2 lots of Chemo, Many days of sickness and Multiple Operations my mum was finally given the all clear after Surgeons were able to go in and remove the Cancer and her Lynthnodes under her Arm. She was told the cancer was gone and she had her life back.
A few month ago my mum had another Scan after once again experiencing pain. She was given the bad news that her cancer is back. After Multiple more scans, Doctors then told my Mum that her Cancer was Terminal due to it spreading rapidly and is all over as well as in her Lynth Nodes around her Heart. Doctors told my Mum she will Die but my mum opted out of knowing when as she doesnt want to know. She was offered Chemo which might extend her life but not cure her although there is a chance of making it worse. She took it.
Right now my mum is well enough to go out, she can walk with the aid of a walking stick although she cannot walk far and requires a Wheel Chair some days. She is on a lot of morphine (120mgs just when she wakes up) she takes the morphine and lots of other medication during the day too and sometimes shes still crying in pain and being sick quite a lot. Before i was about to go to work (its only me & my mum living here) she had a fall.. her legs have way therefore i knew it was time to leave work to take care of her as im her son and a former Care Assistant.
My Mums wish is to go on a Holiday, just me and her. One big last goodbye i guess. We have both been trying to save in a jar but it wont be possible due to bills.
I never thought id ask for help but my Mum comes before pride. With your help id love to suprise her to a Holiday.
