Catrina Fighting Her Illness

$4,835 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 107 people in 8 months
I'm so blessed to be a cancer survivor for over 31 years as of November 2017. In August 2016, I started feeling painful aches in my leg, lower abdomen, and the area where I had cancer as a baby. As months passed, my physical capabilities started to restrict my work in my cleaning business. By January 2017, my painful aches turned into chronic, excruciating pain where I had to give up my professional cleaning clients. My pain would come sporadically, any time of the day and still do.

I started going to the doctor in January about the chronic pain because it was making me have a shortage of breath. I went to the emergency room four different times before I got admitted on November 14, 2017. The pain got out of hand where my life was on the line. Baptist Memorial Hospital in Memphis, TN diagnosed me with a tumor. When I went into remission in March 1985 they informed me of having a higher risk to get cancer again. For some reason, that tumor has caused only my right side to be affected. My right eye sees double visions which limit my driving capabilities and reading right now. My walking and physical abilities are limited to avoid chronic muscle spasms and tumor aches. I know God is sending angels into my life to help me through this.

As of November 29, 2017, my biopsy results, a day after my 34th birthday I was informed that a malignant/cancerous tumor has formed again. I scheduled to start 18 weeks of Chemotherapy starting December 14, 2017. I have been out of work going on 11 months. The doctor informed me that I will be out another 6 months or more with the process. 

I have already depleted my six months emergency savings and need help paying essential bills, car expenses for traveling back and forth to the hospital over the next 4 1/2 months.  My situation is urgent because my working abilities are restricted. It is hard to keep up with my bills without money flowing in consistently. Any money donated will go towards important personal and medical bills, money to buy food, personal hygiene, etc.

My mom will have to drive me from Mason to Memphis, TN 30 miles one way.

Thanks for whatever you donate to me. Please help me share my GoFundMe.

To God Be The Glory! I want to thank each of you that have prayed for me and donated to my cause. I just had my final surgery to remove the cancerous tumor. I have completed chemotherapy in May 2018. I'm so thankful to each of you for being here for me during my most vulnerable times in my life. I am currently healing from the major surgery on July 9, 2018. The doctor cut the same incision from the surgery he done in January. Everything worked out for the good and it is healing properly. I am also having a speedy recovery, thanks to God. I have started my new health journey, eating fruits and vegetables, limiting processed foods, exercising and doing right by God. I am blessed to have inspired so many people along my journey. I will continue to inspire and share my story. Thanks again and God bless you. Be on the look out for my new book about my Health Journey.

***Catrina's Cancer Story***

Chemotherapy has made my fingernails dark. This is for anyone shame to go out because of their health conditions. I am not my fingernails. I'm surely not worried about what people think of me because God saved my life.

Thanks to everyone who donated to me, praying for me and sending words of encouragement. I am healing by the days.

Catrina's Survivor Story


Wow, since November 2017, God has put me on a Journey of Strength, Change & Faith in a whole new level. I had to drop everything I worked hard for over the last ten years and trust God. In 2007, I became an Entrepreneur and started my own cleaning business. I blessed many clients with my cleaning skills. They called me Angel many of times for providing quality cleaning and taking care of their homes. Most clients allowed me to clean their homes for 3-5 years because they loved my spirit and cleaning skills.


I was used to cleaning 2000 and 3000 square foot homes in 3-4 hours. Those were usually a two-person job. I considered cleaning homes as my weekly exercise and fitness. I didn't realize how much I was overworking my body. By April 2017, the cancerous tumor stopped my physical abilities to clean anyone home. The pain got so excruciating to the point it would make me sit down to rest in my clients home. That's when I knew I had to let my cleaning business go.


It all stopped in November 2017. I haven't been able to walk a long distance, drive, or do any physical activities and still on bed rest in April 2018. Now I must get my body back on track now that my chemotherapy is working and healing my body. A few weeks ago, I was inspired to plant flowers in my mother front yard. My back was aching me badly after bending down for a small period to plant the flowers.


I'm excited to start my occupational and physical therapy on Monday, April 22, 2018. God has been by my side every step of the way. I understand my healing is a process. I will not lean to my understanding but allow God to direct my path.


Thanks to all who are following my story and has donated a healing blessing in my life.
