My mom had her first round of radiation and chemo today. SHE IS A FREAKING WARRIOR!! She will have radiation everyday, Monday-Friday, for 6 weeks. She also found out she will have 6 rounds of chemo, every 21 days; with her last chemo being in March. After her third round they will do another full body PET scan to look at the tumor to see if there has been any changes. On our way out today she saw the bell and she said “Oh there’s the bell! I’m going to ring that!!” You dang sure right you are, mama!!

Thank you again for all of your prayers, love, donations and support. It is overwhelming, to say the least - and SO appreciated. Keep my mama in your thoughts and prayers, but she is going to ROCK this.

More Info

My name is Cat Jackson. I have created this fundraiser for my mother, Michele Hough. About 4 weeks ago, my mom went to have an MRI done of her shoulder because she was having pain. When she was called with the results, she was told they found a mass on her left lung and she needed to go get a CT with contrast. When the results of the CT came, our worst fears came true. It's cancer. She went for a biopsy on 11/9 and a full body PET scan on 11/16. She had her appointment with the oncologist to go over the results and treatment plan, on 11/20.

She has stage 3 lung cancer. Her oncologist wants to do a vigorous course of treatment; radiation 5 days a week, for 6 weeks & chemo every 3 weeks for the 6 weeks, as well. She has all of treatment appointments scheduled to start next week and she got a call today stating she has to pay her portion up front, before they will start her treatment. Absolutely unbelievable, but we are at their mercy.

I am starting this fundraiser in hopes to help my mom be able to begin her life saving treatments and to help my parents get through the hard times ahead; to allow my mom to get her treatments and have the ability to take care of herself, instead of worrying about working and bills.

I understand times are tough for everyone and I understand if you cannot donate. I would appreciate a prayer and a share to get this out there, in hopes to help ease the stress my parents are feeling at this time. Thank you!
