I honestly don't know how to start this or necessarily what to say... to say that we are needing to raise money for Maxine's medical care doesn't do her justice. She is diagnosed with STAGE 4 SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER.
She isn't defined by her situation which happens to be stage 4 small cell lung cancer. She isn't just another cancer patient, she is the most wonderful, kind, caring, compassionate and loving woman you'll ever have the pleasure of meeting. She is a, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and more. She lives for her family and would help anyone in need before helping herself. Now she is in need of help, we need to come together and help her with medical expenses and trying to get her better.
They live 5 hours away from her treatment center and she has to travel several times a month and the expenses are adding up. Along with travelling comes the hotel stays because she's so weak she can't travel there and back all in one day.
I could go on and on with why this gracious lady deserves to be helped but everyone who reads this and knows her knows how far she would go to help any one of us. Those of you who haven't had the pleasure of knowing her please know her last $5 would be yours if you were in need whether she knew you or not. She is the woman who gives to the homeless on the corner or helps the random man pay to get his tire fixed so his family is safe. Let's see if we can do her justice and return the favor in her time of need.
Please help spread the word and help by supporting her when she needs it the most. Share this post and link with everyone you know and can. Together we can get them the help they need at this difficult time in their lives.
