Vicci's Cancer Journey
I have had several life stresses in a row several years ago and had a complete breakdown. Your only supposed to have a major stress every seven years, and I had about 6 in 2 years. There is a lot to share of my story which would make a great made for TV Lifetime movie.
I am currently living with a close friend from school who has been very kind and generous, but my biggest fear on a daily basis is that I will have no where to live in the future. I don't know how to manage cancer and being homeless too.
I have survived, and I think I have done pretty good under the circumstances. Thank God I have had some great friends that cared the last couple of years who helped me feel better about myself and realize I was capable of doing some things I thought I would never be able to do again when cancer hit.
I am a good woman who loves life. I keep thinking that the valley will end, then I am headed up the mountain when I get hit with another problem. I inherited my problems do to genes. I didn't just do it to myself it was never in my controI have always helped my friends when ever I could and I feel like that is why lately people have helped me. My granny taught me that you always help your friends and neighbors. People always said I was just like her which made me feel proud and still does. I feel very blessed to have the wonderful friends that I have had since my youth. I am lucky in so many ways, and I do indeed feel blessed. I welcomed a new addition to my family on Christmas eve, new grandchild and that makes four. My goal is to continue being a mom and a mimi for years to come. By the wa y I am 63 years old. Any contribution would be deeply appreciated. Namaste!
I spent hours at my fifth dentist yesterday who said they took medicaid but evidently not mine. (Amerigroup Star) Trying to find another today. I was told UT would pull them if it was a medical emergency but they called on Friday and said I had to have mouth cancer. This is so frustrating and I am not feeling up to running all over town again repeating myself exam after exam. Emergency rooms no longer treat abscesses. I am at my witts end. Hanging in there but not smiling. No one seems to care about the pain or if it kills me. They didn't even give me antibiotics.
I also spoke with the American cancer society yesterday. Just got a lot of links, some I have already tried. The thing is I am running out of time.
I called my oncologist for some pills for nausea and didn't even get a call back. The surgeon said tumors could be forming and just not large enough to show up on a pet scan yet they know they didn't get all the cancer cells. I'm scared for my life at this point and not sure where to turn. Thank goodness I have friends who care and are trying to find me help. If anyone wins the lottery, please think of me. It is hard to understand all this suffering because of lack of money. This is our world and I wish I could change it. Thank you all for your support and generous donations. Please keep praying and sending out those positive vibes and share. Love to all! Peace!
3rd round of chemo. Roller coaster ride. Keep those prayers coming!
We're putting an offer on a house! We could use any and all assistance with the down payment, closing costs, moving costs, getting Vicci funds for personal furnishings, etc. I've created a BoostUp.com account to help match the funds I can apply directly to a down payment or the closing costs, though you can donate to Vicci directly here too if want to. Thank you all so much for all you've done for Vicci!!! ♥ Here is the link to my BoostUp page with our story: https://www.boostup.com/Rachelle.Hademenos
They have thank you notes but I'm still trying to figure it out. Technically goofy with computers. Feeling oh so grateful. Thanks for all the shares! (((hugs)
Hi Folks! Pet scan came back Friday without any new hot spots. Trying to schedule surgery for the Port on Monday. Staying positive and oh so grateful.
Thank you so much for your generosity. It gives me hope and warms my heart and soul. Just aren't any words to express my gratitude.
