Current update (Sept. 7th) : My mom is currently at the hospital in Victoria where she has been for the past week, treating symptoms and creating a plan with doctors.
At the beginning of this year, my mom was diagnosed with stage four cancer. This diagnosis was very abrupt and unexpected as she is extremely health-conscious and up until this had next to no health issues throughout her lifetime.
As you can imagine this has taken a huge toll on our family, although we are maintaining our positivity best we can. We are incredibly thankful for the love and support we have received from our community, nothing goes unseen. However, my mom has not been able to work since late December 2020 and will not be able to in the foreseeable future. And between the cost of living, taking care of all our animals, and what my mom needs to heal, it quickly adds up. I am hoping to share this page once again, as I do not want my mom to reach a financial barrier that impedes her recovery.

My mom is caring, compassionate and selfless, always finding a way to help others grow and heal. If you know my mom whether as a friend, a physiotherapist, or one just of the moms at the lake, then you know this is an understatement of my moms’ character. And I hope she can continue to experience some of that sincere love and compassion personally that she undoubtedly deserves. Funds raised will go to direct costs associated with her recovery. If something changes and a trust fund is required for myself and my little sister, that will be communicated directly here.
