My mom, has always been strong, daring, extremely brave. When her and my dad met, they each had 3 children of all different ages, they knew it would not be easy but they stepped up to the challenge for love. I remember when we were kids, she worked right along side my dad, picking apples after work, working in tobacco on the weekends and a full time job during the day. She did everything and anything it took to make sure all 6 of us had what we needed. Today she fights for her life as she has advanced stage 4 cirrhosis of the liver. She found out several months ago and unexpectedly, all of our lives changed as well as hers. The woman we knew as strong and devoted all of these years was now fighting for her life. In early March we threw her a surprise birthday party and all of the brothers, sisters, grandchildren and great grandchildren came. It was a moment we all stopped our lives for her, and loved every minute of it, it was a moment that we all stopped thinking about what the future may hold and just "LOVED OUR MOMMA". Today she is on a waiting list for a liver and we all have faith she will get it, either way her heart is content with what the future holds, she is ready... We all love you mom, and can't wait for many more Mother's Days with you.. Thanks for all you have done.
Mom, Always a Fighter
