Mayford's Strong

Mayford strong is what we call our family. We have walked through the fire and we intend to come back out the other side a stronger, healthier and happy family.
I am currently fighting a terminal diagnosis of metastatic triple negative breast cancer. It has metastized to my bones, lungs, chest wall, chest cavity, lymph nodes; it is starting to push on my pulmonary artery and I have had 2 brain tumors removed. I have been on some pretty strong chemo for the last 8 1/2 years with a small break in between. My chemo may be coming to an end as my counts are not longer just bouncing back. We are asking for help for a few reasons. Number 1. I am not giving up. That is a word not in my vocabulary. Number 2. I have three young children still at home I need to be there for. Number 3. We have exhausted our savings and retirement. And finally; I would like to try an experimental treatment that holds great promise in treating cancer but is not covered by insurances. Plus we still have everyday living expenses plus gas and other non-pays to deal with. Any help is greatly appreciated.
