Hi! I would like for you to meet my beautiful sister Alma Gomez and share her story! Approximately 5 ½ years ago, her life changed unexpectedly. She was diagnosed with Stage 3C ovarian cancer. It was a completely shock for her entire family and we wondered why this had happened to her. To all of you that know Alma, she is a very special, humble and beautiful human being. Why her? She started her journey since then and unfortunately it hasn’t gotten any easier. All the chemotherapy that she has received since then has damaged her immune system so much that she has become immune to it. Her platelets are very low as well as everything else such as her red and white blood cells. She is under a lot of pain since the tumor that initially was in one of her lymph nodes has grown and is now pushing some nerves in her stomach and it has also reached her intestines. She recently received a few rounds of radiation only to help with the pain but the cancer is still there. We have no other option then to look for alternative medication. Sometimes she feels that she no longer wants to fight since she has gone thought a lot but she remembers that she has 2 beautiful daughters and her husband, Leslie, 16 and Valeria, 12 and gets motivated once again to fight until the end. Alma is at a point where there are no more options for her in the States but we still have hope for my sister. There is a holistic treatment given in Tijuana, Mexico and we have decided to take her back. She responded very well the first time she was there and we hope she does well this time too. She is scheduled to return February 15th and will be admitted at CHIPSA for 3 weeks. Since this treatment is not given in the states, her medical insurance does not cover it. The entire cost for her to receive the treatment is $20,000. Even though we’ve had several fundraisers, we have not been able to collect all the money and out time is running up since her tumors have mediatized to her pancreas and other lymph nodes in her body. We have very high hope that Alma will respond to this treatment once again and get better. That is why we are asking for your donations to get Alma back to Tijuana soon. We also ask for your prayers since this is the most powerful thing. We ask that you please share it with your friends and family! Alma is a very strong woman and we will continue fighting with her. Thank you for your help! May God Bless You!!
