We've had a couple of wild weeks. First, we rushed Alex's mom to emergency, due to some heavy bleeding. Then had to wait to get her an appointment with doctor (finally got one last Monday). Then, we wound up calling an ambulance for his aunt, she fell out with a mini-stroke. She's doing somewhat ok now, but with what's happening with Rosemary, I'm not so sure that will last.
We found out today Alex's mom has uterine cancer. Next step, finding hospital and doctors. Please pray for strength and fortitude for us to get her the proper help and the finances (that's going to be the toughest, not enough insurance and no savings) to get through this. She's hanging in there, but I'm afraid his aunt might have some problems. Her little mini stroke the other day might have been just a bit more than that. Alex is just taking all this in right now. Please pray for him, too. He's not really religious, but I truly think he has belief. He's such a good man. Friends, we need all the support you can possibly give us. If what I'm thinking is truly there, this is going to be a twofold event.

GOFUNDME INFORMATION ADDED:
Our Mom, Rosemary Abbott, has just received the dreaded diagnosis that no one ever wants to get. Uterine cancer. Sadly, she finds herself in need of as much help as you can give. Be it money, prayers, words of encouragement, and sharing this page with as many people as you can. Rosemary, her sister Dorothy, and her son and I (Alex and Susy) thank you so very much for hearing her story, and any donations towards her care will be most appreciated.
Rosemary's journey started with an emergency room trip 4 weeks ago, then on to two other doctors before her diagnosis, and now we need to find a primary care physician before the oncologist will operate. We're looking at surgery, treatments, medications, possible home care, and any continuing medical expenses. We need to get started as soon as possible, so her cancer won't spread!
Alex and I have been doing our research on costs, and with what little bit her Medicare Part A covers, the bills will rise far past anything Rosemary and the rest of our family can cover. We've already received several bills we are barely able to cover as a family.
Rosemary is such a fun loving, wild and crazy, stubborn gal, and she wants to continue her journey on this earth, if the Lord is willing. We're not ready to see her go yet, either!
We will forever be grateful for any help you can give. We love our Mom and sister very much!
God Bless You!
Rosemary, Dorothy, Alex and Susy
