My name is Sandra, I am Not
very good with my words, I was
told they can't Cure this....?
I Have a Better Plan~ I'm going
to make every Minute Count.
I just Need some Help.
You Never think this will Happen
This photo is from Better times.
I'm a Single mother to a young daughter with No Family to turn to.
Sadly they Passed Away before I
was Diagnosed with this Cancer.
I am scared to reach out to anyone. I've been Alone for so long~
I forgot how to reach out and ask
for Help. I let Pride lead me.
I've been fighting this battle
since Nov. 2014 worring and
Stressing the whole time.
I was told it was Stage 4~ Inflammatory Breast Cancer
from the beginning.
Today it has Spread to my Lower
Back bone and my Left Lung as
well as my Left Chest. It's Very painful.
I do not see a place to add more photos and it was not easy to
choose to explain my story.
But this is a Rare Breast Cancer
Most People Never see there
Cancer. But I do. It is exposed
as it has it's basic Tumor, but also
creates a mass that breaks through
the skin that causes an open
Wound that is Extremely Painful.
My Surgeon told me this
Is a Rare Cancer:
One you do Not find in the USA,
that it makes your
Friends and Family Run Away
from You.! This was True..
It scared a lot of people I did know Away. I've gone through so
many Treatments and Radiation
plus Major Surgeries. Yet.!
This Cancer keeps coming back.
I just grew back my hair, and I was
just told I am going to loose it
Just the thought makes me Cry.
I was Laughed at before, stared
at like I was a Freak. This is the
I Started another round of Chemotherapy Dec. 11, 2017
I am devastated to go through
this Again. This is my Fifth round,
of a Different Medication. Already
the Side Effects have me in Severe
Pain.. and I'm So Sick Again.
i hope it passes as I get use to it.
I Truly am Lost for Words.
My Medicine bills are Crazy
Expensive each month.
But in January I need to find
the Co-pays for the beginning
of the Year.
It's so much, I've already asked
those I could enough and just
can't this year. I do get Help from
a Very Generous company ~ a
non-profit Cancer assoc. that
pays for most of my medications.
But I still have a Co-pay.
I need help with the cost of
my medications, and every
day Bills. Not being able to
work and Having a 12 yr old
does take more than I have.
If I can raise any extra I would
like to do something with
my daughter before it's to
I've never been able to
afford to do anything special
for Her. But if I'm Blessed
enough I would like to try to
do anything ~something
with my daughter.
The Hardest part Is looking at my Daughter NOT Knowing HOW Much More Time I have.
Wishing I could spend more time
with her in some Special way.
I Feel as If I let her down.
The medical bills have just taken everything.
As of Jan. 11, 2018 I just received
a call from my Pharmacy.
After going back and forth with
them and my Insurance I discovered
that Jan. Co-pay went up this year
Due to the pharmaceutical Co. Raising the Price on my most expensive medication Already,
they Raised the price Again.
this year by $ 7,000.00 per box
I get 10 each a month. This
Caused my Share to increase
My Co-pay just for this One on
the 19, of Jan. 2018 ~ Will be:
then in February it will Drop to a
more affordable rate, but not on
my budget. I believe they forget
I only get Disability each month.
It still does not change the Fact:
they Raised the Price. I Now Need
to Raise more funds to Help me
get past January. Now each month
due to this price increase.
Please.! Know how Grateful I am
for every Donation and Help Offered.
Thank you for reading my story.!
Blessing's to everyone who is Struggling and Suffering too.
I do know there are many stories
like mine. I Feel for them just the same.
So again thank you for taking
the time to read mine.
Remember: a Little is never
to Small. Even $5.00 is so
much Help. It's just a cup ☕️ of
I feel Very Blessed to even
have this privilege to ask for
Thank You.' Again.! ☺️
