Stage 4 Breast Cancer Mom!

Michelle Lister   Calgary, AB

I am a mom to 3 young girls.  I was delivered the devastating news (after many false tests) in April 2010 that I had stage 4 Breast Cancer.  It was in my liver, lungs, bones and lymph system. There was no cure just treatment to prolong my life as long as possible.  Well, with 3 kids to raise, one of them only 9 months old, I decided like any mom would, to fight it with all I could.  I need to be around for as long as possible to raise my family.
 I am going for high dose Vit C IV's twice a week as well as taking injections and supplements to boost my immune system, along with exercise and a diet of healthy clean eating.  Helping me keep the tumors at bay for as long as possible.  My goal is to be around long enough for the medical field to cure me.  I am not going to leave my children without a mom!  I was given 2-2.5 years to live and that time has come and gone.  The cost of these treatments is between $500-$600 a week.  Our family and friends have been fundraising on and off for two years now.  I am again, running out of money to support my medical needs.  The idea of having to stop these treatments is devastating.   So I am asking if you have any extra cash to please help me in my fight for my life.  
My quality of health is excellent. I have good energy and feel fine. I would like to carry on this way for as long as I possible can.
The amount I have chosen will help me with my treatments for one year.
 Thank you for taking the time to read my story. If you have any further questions or would like to send the money directly to me you can do so at davinala@telusplanet.net

Thank You everyone who has already donated!  I really appreciate it!!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone that has donated. As most of you know I will be starting the dreaded chemo again. Most likely next week. I have my Naturopathic Oncologist to help get me through the nasty side effects and make the chemo more effective. My body is stronger then the last go around, so it will be doable. Keep your fingers crossed for me that this time chemo sends these tumors a running.

I just wanted to say I am so very grateful for all the support you guys have given me. I knew I always had great friends but the generosity of them and others has been very overwhelming.
I hate asking others for help. HATE IT! But it has taught me to be humble and shown me what a gift I have in my friends and family.
So thank you everyone. Now I am off to IV with a lighter heart.
