So I’ve been contemplating for a couple years now on how I should come about this. As I don’t like asking for help or discussing personal tidbits about my life. 

In 2007, my mom was involved in a life threatening malpractice causing her brain loss, broken ribs and nerve damage in both her legs. Resulting in her using a walker. All in which wasn’t her fault. Even after the accident she is very optimistic and humble and hasn’t asked for a thing. She deserves a second chance at life and a little happiness considering what a crummy year she’s been having. 

My mom has exhausted every possible means. Insurance, health benefits, relatives’ and friends’ kindness. I need about $20,000 to pay for all the medical procedures, a nurse,  her move and a new working functional car.

I don’t know what else to do except to ask. I’m embarrassed to do so, but if it turns out you guys are willing to help, and If I didn’t ask, I would never forgive myself. Please help this amazing lady. I currently don’t have much but I’ve posted up a few reward options. You can donate any amount. I’ll be eternally grateful.

It’s my mom’s Birthday today, I wish I could tell her about this fundraiser as a birthday gift but we’re not quite there yet. Show her some love and donate~

So, I haven’t updated this in quite some time. Things have been on the hectic side. At first, the good kind of hectic and then later down the line, the bad.

This summer, I had a work hiatus which gave me some free time but not only that the stars aligned to my favor and I actually managed to bring my mom to California for a visit! I’ve been living here for four years and this will be the first time she’s been since I moved. She enjoyed a day at Disneyland, (which she hasn’t seen in 16 years!) dining, the spa and meeting my crew and friends at work. She really enjoyed herself and I’m glad she got to experience a glimpse of what can be. The sad thing is, she only got to be here for one week.

I did notice she lost some steam since I last saw her. The past few months, my mom grew very sick. Not too much was known at the time. Things were starting to get looked at right before her visit to California. I didn’t want to take her away from her appointments even though she was having a good time. So I had to cut her visit short. As soon as she got back from her trip the doctors responded to us with her current status and results.

My mom has been diagnosed with colon cancer….
We just can’t catch a break it seems… I’ve been dealing with the news and that’s why I haven’t been able to update as much as I should. It’s been tearing me a part since she’s such a good person.

They performed a CT scan and luckily it’s only located in her colon. She’s been doing her chemotherapy and radiation the past few weeks. It was that or cutting it out and risking her having to attach a bag to her for the rest of her life. The doctor said that it IS curable if she keeps going to her sessions. Which is a very positive thing.

I told her about all the generous people and friends who donated to this fundraiser. I told her people DO care for her and are thinking of her. I still haven’t told her the amount though. I would love to tell her that the full total was raised. I’m hoping she is cured after all this and she can FINALLY come to California for good. I want her to know that we made our goal.

She is in high spirits even with the tragic news and is taking this on day by day. Like she always does.

I’m at the low end of the stick right now and it would mean a lot for the additional help. I just want to finish what I started. Ya know? I want her to have another chance and start a new when she’s cured. Thanks, all. The donation link is located on this post~

Devastating news on our side. Any help is most appreciated with undying gratitude.  Lina is a strong strong woman.

  ok no but this hits me so hard + cause hiccup is visibly upset + even if i don’t remember what they were saying at this exact point + and the dragon just comes over and gives him a lil nuzzle + 'it's ok weird little leather boy' + 'ur safe here' + 'we luf you' + and hiccup just kinda keeps talking + but almost unconsciously turns to the dragon and starts petting him + this makes me think of my dog so much + cause they can just SENSE when you’re upset + and instinctively come over and try to help + and even just the tiniest bit + you can see hiccup straiten up a bit more + like it helps him refocus and not get more upset (via choose-your-muse)

It’s when Valka asks Hiccup if he’s not upset… and Hiccup replies “Maybe! I don’t know!” It’s really too bad that we don’t have enough time for him to react to Valka NATURALLY. He just isn’t given enough time (or enough screen time for us to see) to process all of it. He doesn’t even actually pet that dragon — I think that small non-gesture only reinforces his hesitation over the whole subject. I imagine he spent most of the journey toward the feeding spot stealing odd glances at Valka, and maybe speaking to Toothless in hushed tones. “Can we trust her? I don’t know her. I’m not sure if I understand her yet. I DON’T KNOW.”
After the movie ends, he says he is “glad to have her in Berk”. He calls her “mom”. His father (the one parent he grew up with) just tragically passed away and he had to go through all the other events; I’m sure that he will still have to get to KNOW Valka better, before he can actually feel at ease with this person and see her as a motherly figure. Realistically, although Hiccup and Valka may share many traits as individual persons, they’re not in the right place or time to have a mother-son relationship just yet. That bond will have to form in time; who knows if it will ever fully work.
