Fight Against Cancer

My Fiancée, Alexa, felt a sharp pain and she thought that it was a symptom from a stomach virus. After some time has passed, the pain still persisted, so we rushed to a hospital to get her vitals/blood work checked. The doctors said that she had a white blood cell count three to four times more than the average; which translated to Leukemia.  The doctors stated that it is a very aggressive type of Leukemia and if she does not receive her Chemotherapy within a month or so, the doctors said she would likely pass away within a month or so.

The recommended treatment for her is Chemotherapy, which also includes blood and possible bone marrow transfusions. There are minor elements that become incorporated in the financial aspect. Elements such as medicines, transportation, length of time in the hospital, and loss of income while Alexa is in the hospital. While time of the funds being needed is not immediately urgent, they would be more than beneficial in relieving us in financial hardship.

If you know someone who has or have had Leukemia, their experience of it would be greatly appreciated. If there are any other forms of treatment that you have knowledge on, that would be very essential as well. My Fiancée is afraid, due to a lack of people she knows who has cancer. If she were to hear supportive information from people who have fought against cancer, then I know her confidence and positivity will be greatly elevated. 

 Fortunately, the cancer can be treatable, if not curable. We are confident that with the everyone's assistance, we could do more than get through this challenging stage for Alexa. We often find it difficult to ask for help, even in dire circumstances. Therefore, it can not be stated how grateful we are to those who show their love and support. We understand that there are many individuals who have been afflicted with some type of cancer. This reason is why we have decided that if we were to have extra funds, then they will be donated to a Cancer Society or a similar association.
