My Mother, Linda married my father 33 years ago. She took in my brothers and I at a young age (2,4 and 6) and raised us as her one children. Never once has she called us her step children. They then adopted my brother at 8 months as well and temporarily raise my half sister as well as my niece from the time she was born to now putting her through college at Texas State. My parents now have my grown son, his wife and their combined 4 children that they opened their home to. My mom is always putting her self last and thus why she didnt go to the doctor until it had grown to painful. She has stage 3 cancer and is having surgery October 11th to remove a mass. My parents own their own construction business and never thought to get insurance on themselves as they never go to the doctor. Now the expense of the medical bills and surgery will be fully out of pocket. I would like to ease some of this burden from them by raising money for some of these bills. My mother is a very private person and does not know that I am doing this as they wouldnt even think to allow me to campaign.
