I’m my moms best friend and caretaker ..she is getting ready to celebrate her 86th birthday on July 31st..my birthday present to her would be to take her on a trip to go visit with all her relatives and see her granddaughter Kelly in Alexandria La. my only daughter that I haven’t seen in over 12 years . I was married to a Navy Senior Chief and had traveled the world and after my divorce over 22 yrs I moved back home with my daughter., she moved off and got married ..I stayed home and worked at Sam’s Club for 12 yrs during that time in 2007 I was there to care for my step dad who had two Brain tumors that couldn’t be operated on. He was the. Rock in our family .,I didn’t know that during the time I was caring for him that I had breast cancer and I survived it up until recently I found out I now have metastasized cancer to my bones ..my mom had also recently found out she has breast cancer and ..I have always been a mommas girl .. I’ve stayed with her since my dad died and we are trying to make the best of what time we have left here together..I wanna do something special for my mom because she is my everything and took care of me for years always she had worked hard to make sure we had most of things in life to get by with .,kept clothes in our backs and food on the table we lived in the poorest project neighborhood growing up and she fought hard for us to get VHA home to have a decent home and good neighborhood and school for us three kids . I married young and left home at 21 yrs old ..I never liked leaving my mom behind as she had got in a car wreak and broke her neck and with therapy she managed to walk again but has struggled with a limp and is left with a lot of other health problems..she has two masses on her ovaries and swelling in her legs . She’s still going strong ..I have a mass in my stomach and my back area as I have fibromyalgia with chronic pain every day ..as with bone cancer now but I still care for my mom 24/7 ..I have now a tumor in my right breast..I lost my left breast to cancer the first time ..but I know there’s no cure for bone cancer. I’ll be able to get some pain medication to help with my every day living with cancer and caring for myself s d my mom ..this trip would mean the world to me ..I’d like to take her to Disney World ..she had taken me when I was a little girl ..they have so many new things to see there and I just would love to have our last fondest most exciting and beautiful times of memories spending my time with my mom ..my bff 👯..I love her with all my heart and soul ..!!! I’d love to give her something back for all she sacrificed for us kids ..thx for letting me share my story with you . If I don’t win ..I’m not going to be sad ..I’m not as lucky as a lot of the ones that win things like this ..but I feel lucky that I have my mom still with me and we are alive today and blessed by what God has given to us ..bless y’all for these fine giveaways..I wish the persons who win a happy time with their loved ones where ever they get to go ..enjoy and have fun ..!! God Bless Amen 🙏
