Help Amanda Fight Stage 3 Cancer

My name is Amanda Middleton I am a 34 year old mother of a four year old boy from Vernon BC. In January 2013 I found a lump about the size of a dime on my right leg just below my knee. I went to the hospital to get it checked out the doctor there sent me for a ultrasound which showed that the lump had its on blood supply. I was then refered to a orthopedic surgeon who told me not to worry that the lump was just a cyst but I'll send you for a MRI just to be sure. It took over a month to have the MRI done. In the mean time the lump was getting bigger and bigger it was now the size of a golf ball. The results came in at the end of February and they showed it was a form of cancer called a sarcoma. The orthopedic surgeon then refered me to the cancer clinc in Vancouver to see a doctor that specialized in treatment of sarcomas. I had a biopsy done on the sarcoma in mid March at the cancer clinc in Vancouver. The results showed that it was a stage 3 undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma. I was then refered to the cancer clinc in Kelowna to begin radiation treatment. I underwent 25 rounds of high dose radiation to shrink the tumour. I underwent surgery on June the 19th to remove the tumour. It was a complicated surgery involving a muscle graft transfer and a skin graft. The surgery was successful in removing the tumour. I had my follow up four months later on October 4th with the surgeon. He told me that the cancer was gone from my leg but it had unfortuately spread to my right lung and that the tumour needed to me removed A.S.A.P. I had surgery on October 22nd to remove the tumour and resection my right lung. I was then refered to a cheomtherapy doctor in Kelowna because after my one month follow up one of my scans showed a mass had developed between my bronchial tube and my heart. I had a biopsy taken and it came back as cancer once again. I am currently waiting for my treatment for this 3rd tumour to begin. If you could please find it in your hearts to help me and my family during this difficult time your contribution would be greatly appreciated and I thank you in advance for your generousity.
