My cancer treatment

My name is Amie, and I am a single mother to 2 beautiful children. I have been fighting a giant cell bone tumor and 3 months ago, was diagnosed with thyroid follicular carcinoma that has metastasized into my illiac crest, acetebelum, spine, ribs, and more.

I have been in a wheel chair due to the pain this has caused. My doctors say this is complicated, because the bone tumors I have in conjunction with this is concerning. I have had radiation to shrink the tumor and am now getting ready for more treatment. I am told this is Stage 4. My doctors say, “love your life between treatments because you will always have this.” They say that conventional treatment will never get rid of the cancer completely.

I have been talking to many doctors and 
not able to work due to this, but finally found another treatment that may be capable of finally curing the cancer and getting rid of it entirely. I want to get treatment to cure this and be able to live a long, healthy, happy, life with my 2 children. But the treatment itself is expensive, and currently I am unable to work from needing ongoing treatment, and would need to find someone to watch my children, bring them to school, and the medical continuation, so I would need a lot of help. I appreciate more then you know anything you can do to help me to get better fast!

In relation to my giant cell bone tumor, I was taking a medicine that caused a side effect, osteocronitis of the jaw, which was extremely painful, so I had to discontinue the medication. But without the medication, the tumors get worse, including a large one in my finger, so I am told they now have to amputate my finger, which is difficult because I am a piano player and Music Therapist.

I would be so grateful to heal myself through other treatment options. I know I have a long road, but I really want to get back to my life without all of these treatments that have horrific side effects.

Together we will fight this cancer! I am sooo grateful for all of you and I can’t wait to tell you, “I am Cancer Free” and scream it from the rooftops.

Thank you for all of your love and prayers
