Young mother of 5 small children fighting for her life
During a follow up CT scan, two spots have now been found on her lungs. She has been advised that the lung cancer is incurable.Wellington
Chaelim found a lump on her breast last year when she was carrying her 5th child. She didn’t want anything to impact the health of her unborn baby so she chose to delay treatment until after the birth. Unfortunately, it was a fast growing mass, which resulted in an immediate mastectomy. Just recently she found another two lumps which were removed in November. During a follow up CT scan, two spots have now been found on her lungs. She has been advised that the lung cancer is incurable.
Currently she is undergoing radiation at Palmerston North Hospital, 2 hours drive from her home.
This wonderful young mother home-schools her two older boys, while also caring for her three younger girls, is forever loving, bubbly and positive. She is extremely private and would never ask for help for herself – so we are, her extended family.
There are many costs that her and her husband will struggle to cover, and this situation will not only continue but increase over time. We don’t want this added stress for her. In fact, we hope that with your generosity, there may even be a surplus so they can enjoy some special times together and make beautiful memories. We love her dearly, and naturally we’ll be doing whatever we can to support her, but if you can spare a few dollars, this would make a huge difference to the quality of Chaelim's life.
Thank you in advance, and blessings to you and your family.
