I am starting this donation campaign for my mother, Patricia Farland, she is 71 years old. She was diagnosed with Lung Cancer (SCLC) and reached extensive stage with the tumor spreading to her lungs and chest.
This is a hard thing to ask, but I'd appreciate you taking some time to read my story.
My name is Carissa Farland. I am starting this donation campaign for my mother, Patricia Farland, she is 71 years old. On Wednesday, the 10th of this month my mother started feeling severe pain in her chest, after taking her to the hospital, the doctor said that she need to take an MRI scan and blood test immediately. which has reveled that she has fluid in her lungs and mutated stages of lung cancer (SCLC) with white spots across the lungs.I can't explained how shock I was, I cried that day.
My mother used to smoke when she was young, but she stopped it more than 40 yeas ago. she never imagined that consequences of smoking will follow her this far.
Now she is taking pain killers to cope with the pain, and she had to drain her lungs. But the doctor said that she needs to go through a surgery this months. and that she shouldn't wait more time. Because she has reached an extensive stage and the tumor is spreading to other areas of the lungs and chest.
The initial calculations shows that we need more than 30 000 dollars for the surgery and other treatments after the surgery. But we were only living on the unemployment benefit since I lost my job at the beginning of the year due to covid19. and my savings are not even close to half of the amount.
We have reached out to friends and family, but we are still short 10 000 dollars. That's when I discussed with my mother to start this donation campaign.
I have lost my father few years ago. I can't lose my mother now, I still need her in my life.
