Sarah's Cancer Campaign

As many of you know I have been battling stage IV endometrial cancer for the last 21 months. I have had several scary moments that made me fight for my life, have gone through a surgery that landed me in the ICU, and have endured numerous medical complications. However, I have been blessed with much support and love by my husband, family and friends which has helped me stay positive and motivated. Due to this, I have been able to complete my doctorate in the mist of all this and I have been able to maintain my employment in which I have  dedicated my life to. Unfortunately, this in itself has brought me many negative consequences due to my weak immune system (chronic nausea, fatigue, hospitalizations, multiple ER visits, etc.) which makes working at times very difficult. As a result I have had to reduce my hours. The Lord has blessed me with the best team of doctors (Dr. Pinelli, Dr. Katz and Dr. Diaz) and if it was not from this team, I would not be here writing this today. As my treatment has continued forth, it has reached a point where my treatment team is recommending the need for additional treatment. After undergoing the 5th regimen of chemo, I have begun seeking out consults from multiple major universities and hospitals throughout the state.  After no additional clinical trials or treatment options have been found here in Florida, the search has begun to be explored outside the state. The Lord has opened a door in Houston, Texas at MD Anderson. I was contacted last week and was told I was a candidate for a study that would be held during the summer and am also eligible for additional treatment options that Florida does not currently have. This of course is an answer to my prayer and a move that is highly recommended from my treatment team. However, with this comes much expense due to the need to having to stay in Houston for the duration of my treatment. Unfortunately this decision has placed me in a very big hardship and in need of additional funding so I can heal. Please pass this on to anyone who knows me or is sympathetic to my cause. Prayers are additionally recommended.
