Help Save Ivana’s Life

To my dear family & all my dear friends ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
Most of you know me from films we have all worked on together ; ) I work in the costume department & art department, and I’ve worked with so many of you on set over the last 13+ years which I have loved every minute of !
I know that many of you aren’t aware of this ,
but I was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer in July 2017 . My prognosis has become most dire , as my breast cancer has metastasized and is now at stage 4 .
My doctors have urged me to let everyone know that I need help, as I am in a most desperate state .
This is so damn hard for me to ask you all , but I am urgently seeking financial support to help me raise the funds I need , so that I can get treatments to save my life ♥️

After watching many of my relatives and friends suffer tremendously and die from the complications and severe side effects of chemotherapy and radiation , I chose not to undergo these allopathic treatments.
Even more so after my father had been diagnosed with prostate cancer late 2011.
Instead for the past few years , I have been intensely researching immunotherapies and integrative treatments & medicines that are available globally .

I’ve met some incredible integrative doctors who have helped thousands of patients in Australia. Also , I’ve met and spoken to hundreds of cancer patients from here and overseas , who have successfully overcome their cancers, by undergoing many intensive integrative treatments and immunotherapies.

My father and I have tried to pursue as many treatments as we could afford over the years,
but too many were well out of our financial reach . These past few years have been incredibly hard on my family & myself , but mother has been our rock & supported us both immeasurably throughout these difficult years .
But on top of everything that I’ve been going through personally , my family has now suffered our greatest loss .
My dear father Ivan , died tragically 3 months ago from severe complications whilst in hospital.
My mother is suffering beyond words and is in the deepest mourning , losing the only man she loved for almost 50years .
I have no money left to even begin any treatments , as all of our savings went towards my father’s modest funeral costs .

Due to all of the trauma & stress of my father’s tragic death , my breast cancer has doubled in size. It has metastasized further into my lymphatic system , putting my aggressive cancer now into stage 4 .
My primary tumor has become massive , 7.3cm x 7.9cm x 4.2cm in diameter , and is the size of
an orange .
I also have two smaller tumors on top of my primary one , and numerous smaller ones under my arm , causing me severe pain , pushing at the surface of my skin wanting to rupture .
This will become detrimental if my tumors ulcerate. And it has left me in this most urgent state now .

I need to fundraise this money and fast !
My doctors have told me , if I don’t go overseas and get the immunotherapy treatments I need soon, I most likely won’t see my next birthday .

There are two amazing hospitals , one in Malaysia and the other in Japan , where my doctors have sent many of their terminal cancer patients to , who are now in remission and are thriving and living cancer free .
The immunotherapies & integrative treatments
that I will need to undergo , are very expensive and will run for 8-10 weeks .
They will cost upwards of $90,000.

I love my family, I love my friends & I love my life beyond words ♥️♥️♥️
and you all know how much I love working in our amazing & supportive film industry!

I want to live an amazing , wonderful , long life
and I want to see you all again !!

I hope I can get everyone’s support ...
As my mother and my sisters will not cope having
to bury me as well .

I’m genuinely running out of time .
So please , if you can , donate whatever you can afford.... I’ll be forever grateful ; )

One day , I promise to return all the favors to every single one of you xxx

Thank you all dearly from the bottom of my heart !

All my love & biggest hugs to you ALL
♥️♥️♥️ Ivana xxxxxx
