Please find PiChun’s Story below:
Born a normal healthy girl, at 3 years old due to the ignorance of her aunt and uncles at the time, my mom, PiChuan unfortunately contracted polio from her infected cousin while sharing the same spoon. Unable to reverse the damage, she succumbed to the destructive effects of the virus living with a deformed spine and the loss of mobility in one leg.
At a tender age, she persevered through the stigma which came with being disabled growing up at the time. With only a primary education and her strong will, she fought her way through all types of struggles in the job market to finally making way for herself but also single-handedly provided for her family.
In September 2015, a small fall that fractured her only good leg completely robbed her of the little mobility and independence that she had left. The fall also kicked started an early onset of post-polio syndrome. The combination lead her into depression.
From 2016 onwards she fought hard to regain her confidence. She regained her mobility through the use of the mobile scooter, built new relationships, began traveling and was smiling again.
Until February of 2019, a visit to the doctor due to irregular vaginal bleeding flipped her world upside down again. She was diagnosed with m
elanoma in the cervix (mucosal melanoma), one of the rarest and most aggressive type of cancers known today, with only 1% chance of having this type of cancer in the cervix....
March’ 19 my mom undergone radical hysterectomy returning with a clean scan in April, no adjuvant therapy was done per doctors recommendation—- Update July 2019
Unfortunately, the latest PET/CT taken in the beginning of July confirms that it has metastasized to the liver and spine...
Treatment is now imminent.
The upcoming 6 months - 1 year treatment of immunotherapy + possible radiation will cost roughly $100K, with that said, the donations given in the last few months will help cover partial treatments, so again, my sincere gratitude for all the donations! ❤️❤️❤️
I am however imploring you once again, the well wishers to support by way of any donations ($1, $5, $10..) for her to have a fighting chance, I would be grateful if you could please share the link below, so I may continue to raise funds to help cover upcoming treatments. If you’ve donated, I really appreciate it and am really thankful. I ask that however, you do NOT donate a 2nd time as I’ve received your kindness already, instead a prayer would be most appreciated.
