Help Shauna's Cancer Recovery
I need money for gas/parking when I go for infusions, alternative healing treatments, vitamins & supplements, organic food, and manual lymph drainage massage. I could also use help to pay bills as I am not working. I would be grateful for whatever amounts you could contribute.
I start treatment next week. It would mean a lot to me to not have to worry while I am recovering.
I would like to remember the dear departed who served as an inspiration for me, those who survive: witnesses, the heroes.
I recently became a grandmother, and am filled with joy for Abigail, the little dumpling.
My disability benefits need to be extended and there will be a gap, which I hope that some donations could fill.
Muchas gracias, thank you, merci beaucoup!
Finished treatment # 6 yesterday! yay! I also got new thigh high stockings with boxers and new Solidea tights, all a size smaller. At night time now wearing quilted compression boxers/leg sleeve with jackets. The lymphedema therapist added deep water exercise at least once a week (burrrr) but the reward is not having to pump later. My dear friend, John, drove me to UCSF yesterday, so had a great chat all the way up and back.
I said to my cancer support group Tuesday, we need to heal and recover in time to save the planet. In time to make it to North Dakota, in time to participate with YOU.
Big love, big hopes & dreams,
I went for the 5th treatment today, already breaking out in rash, so it is working! The mole that appeared after the last treatment disappeared. Thirteen more to go! I don't know what I would do without the support from WomenCare, a resource center for women with cancer.
I continue with the aquatic lymphedema decongestion program, without which I would be unable reduce fibrosis and volume of my right leg, which still is several inches bigger than the left.
Thank you all for your support, prayers, good wishes, and beautiful thoughts.
I had the 3rd infusion last Thursday, with some stomach cramps and fatigue since then, which means I am getting the Keytruda. My son, Gabe, drove me up, and we had the best time talking and laughing. I feel so grateful to be in this window of research to qualify for this drug, still in the clinical trial stage. I swim nearly every day, to control the lymphedema, which helps immensely. Monday I met with the lymphedema therapist, who is wonderful, and to be fitted with smaller compression garments.
Thank you everyone who has given their love, time, and money to aid me on this journey.
15 more to go!
