Unfortunately, after a two-year battle with cancer, (first starting as breast, and then metastasizing to her bone and at this moment, settling in her in lungs) our mom… a mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend needs help. In today’s society many families deal with the growing costs and out-of-pocket expenses with healthcare. With this in mind, the bills are adding up. Our dad, with no other option or choice, has to continue to work six days a week, 12 hours a day to support the family.

And Katrina, a 15-year-old sophomore has taken on the responsibilities to care for our mother the best she can, while balancing school, her friends, her teenage years, and her emotions.
