$7,224 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 295 people in 12 months
Created August 1, 2018
***THIS ACCOUNT WAS CREATED BY DIANA LAW ON BEHALF OF ME TANEISHA SMITH . 

My name is Taneisha Smith, I am 28 year of age.  I have Stage 2b Endometrial cancer. I did surgery Last December. 7 months ago, Oncologist discovered a mass in my stomach. I had my 3rd surgery on the 15 of August 2018.  I shared my views as I don't have any money as i am not able to work. This surgery was an Operative Laparoscopy. I was able to raise funds via this medium through (FB  &INSTAGRAM)The cost of the surgery was JAMAICAN  $475,000 in US$3883, plus treatments, medical and scans requests.  Surgery was a success, still, have arrears to be cleared. I am grateful i was able to get this surgery done and was in the hospital for 1 week and 2 days, the medical expenses increased as i am still having complications after surgery. After going home, i spent 3 days and was rushed to the hospital, I suffered a slight stroke, ❤️ heart attack. Fluid were in my lungs, i was given blood transfusion as my blood count was 5.  I spent 2 weeks in hospital. God is good,  he has and still is filling in the gaps for me. I thank him every day for granting me life.



All proof are within my posts on instagram and facebook and my gofund me page. I am so distraught at time but grateful for lifee to continue fighting.  My princess, my baby girl who is 8, very intelligent just sorry sometimes she has to see her mom in pain, cant move at times, back to back hospital admissions. Please i beg of u, as treatment regimen has been initiated.  (CHEMOTHERAPY 3 rounds & COMBINED WITH 10 rounds of INTERNAL RADIATION ETC).  It's a struggle , as side effects are crazy believe  you me they are are.  Sometimes i get so overwhelmed, and wish i had emotional and physical support alot . I cry and pray every night,  for strenght to continue this fight , to be here,  live to see my princess grow up.  Im a resilient to continue being strong just never thought i would have to  go through this again. I appreciate and thank each and every support, as i know  everyone is aiding.  Thank you wholeheartedly.  

At my Surgery appointment January 21, 2019, after CT scan and observation I was told by my SOPD (SURGERY DOCTOR), that cancer is in both breasts. There were, and still is bleeding in both breasts, procedures such as cytology, biopsies were done, I am awaiting some furthers results confirming stage. The doctor’s plans are Chemotherapy, constant blood work, CT, MRI scans, blood transfusions if necessary and surgery. Treatments, both cancer and medical has gone beyond my target, which brings my total to US $5500 .  Raised US$2398 thus far .I have been so distraught but have to stay strong for my one and only child, my daughter. I am grateful for life, to continue fighting for my daughter. My princess Hailey, my baby girl who turned 9 December 2018, very intelligent just sorry sometimes she has to see her mom in pain, cannot move at times, back to back hospital admissions. 
I appreciate each and every one with the help I have received thus far. I am in need of dire help, I am beseeching financial, prayers, emotional support as I am in for another fight of a life time. Owing to this I am still unable to afford cancer treatments, medications, pain medications as pain is at range 10 which is the highest form of pain.  I am Asthmatic, so I cannot take any form of NSAIDS MEDICATIONS (MEDICATIONS THAT TRIGGER ASTHMA. Such as Baralgin, Ibroprufen, naproxen, diclofenac and mefenamic acid. Currently I am on Panadeine F, which has Codeine and Panadol. It aids with the pain, but bringing down the pain to 5, still unbearable. I am a single mother without running water as pipe has been disconnected for a period of time, I have to be borrowing hose (4) to be able to get water, the strain is very intolerable as sometimes I cannot manage to do it, afford it and making others inconvenienced. I am unable to send my daughter to school at times because I am not able to work being that I am ill.

Please I am pleading with you to share my story, my GoFundMe link and if your able to assist in any way possible donate even a $1 am very grateful and appreciated.  Anyone in Jamaica and is willing to help, my account number # is: 564398683. Name: Taneisha Smith.

I was admitted for one week re transfusion and being dehydrated due to diarrhea vomit and fever.  
 After ct of the pelvis/abdomen, my colon didn't look clear,  so an obstruction was found . The Barium Enema ($42000)$31,000+$11,000, for contrast that is to be done , this was put on hold as i cannot eat any solid food for two(2) days (only liquid , while drinking , 6 sachet of Epson salt for each time 7am, 12pm and 5pm, is thrown in  bottle. while this is the preparation.  I really didnt want to have any more diarrhea as its down finallyfinally . Breathing is a bit rough, due to being ill, asthmatic due to the change in climate , but i live by faith  and trust my heavenly fatherfather.  I'm so drained but I'm not giving up,  that's not in my middle name . Yes odds are there but my God loves me best . ❤️

So I had this done, it couldn't be done as there was a blockage. I have completed some cycles of treatments improvements has been made as the tumors are shrinking. Currently had to break because of the Lymphedema in my legs and my Heart.  Angina has been crazy lately, along with other side effects due to treatment my body not healing completely after doing so many surgeries. One other great thing, my legs have gone down now.  Thanks be to God. He has been a force in my life and my faith in him will never fold no matter what the devil tries to through at me.  The bleeding in my breast has gone down its only spots lightly now 4 rounds of Radiotherapy helped greatly, most praise to Heavenly father again. really concerned about my colon as its more than a possibility now that they will remove it during surgery. 
I have a scan on the 7.5.19. I pray that treatment helped that I won't have to Take any more God-awful drink of these preparations for scans, and there isn't anymore abnormality there.  

I'm in a lot of pain, the right of my tummy at the top below my breast.  my blood count is down it's at 7.5 from a 10. I have been working so hard to keep it up so no more blood transfusions. my green juices which plant or vegetable, I know has iron in it. my white blood cell was down really low after treatment. I was injected (God how I'm tired of being injected) Neulasta. I have blood work and Surgery B and GUI appointment next week. all may not be well but improvements are being made. God is good

31812846_155975536381541_r.jpegGood afternoon. How are you all? I hope your all OK. We just have to be thankful for God whom grant us life on a daily, not everyone is furtunate, so as we go by daily pray to live to see the break of dawn. 
Treatment has progressed well, my breasts are bleeding as they use to. I'm not completely out the woods but to be losing blood that way, and immune system being low and to be going through this again is unimaginable. I'm really having crazy muscle and swollen joint pains even to type is hard. still have a MRI to be done, it has been really hard with everything (food, buying water to put in tank, my daughter with back to school, scans, treatment, appointments, light etc.), because everything necessary is money and in not able to work. I am beyond grateful to each and everyone that had aided me in everyway possible. I have to do this MRI before the 14Th of this month so docs can know how to progress further and plan for surgery. 
Please, please, I know it's back to school for everyone, and some families aiding each other but I'm begging you,share my gofundme story and even $5 goes along way.

Good night hope all is well. Not doing well. Got admitted, it's been three days since on the medical Ward, checking to see if I'm anemic again, along with ascites in my stomach which causes swelling .I'm on NEBS got Oxygen along with antibiotics, pain meds, meds to coat the stomach. I have a Echo-Cardiogram of the heart costing (US$105) which is equivalent to (JA$12005). It has been really expensive with everything as I'm a single mom who isn't able to work.
Following, needing of a CT SCAN OF CHEST costing (US$350) equivalent to (JA$35200); because I'm asthmatic, fluid is in my lungs, and a pneumonia . never ever giving up but sometimes I'm really tired. God he knows. I need tons of help. Sometimes I wish things were different in so many ways. Continue praying encouraging and sharing my gofund me story. Plus it doesn't even matter how small or how you can donate I am extremely grateful and beyond appreciative.
