Thinking that was the end for me, I started to get my life in order and made plans to visit the people that mean the most to me. Then dear friends in the medical field told me about IV Vitamin C infusions. A solution that doesn't destroy my body? WOW! I talked to my surgeon about it and he was infuriated with me that I would even consider anything but chemo/drugs. That I could have an opinion about my own health infurated him even more. He even compared the Vitamin C infusions to "standing in front of a bus and waiting to get hit". Two weeks of intensive research and phone calls trying to find someone who does this treatment in my area resulted in tears, frustration and dead ends. Time and time again, I wanted to give up but I was determined to salvage my quality of life as well as pave the way so that others have an easier time getting the treatment they want. Trying to get help that doesn't kill our bodies shouldn't be this hard.
I finally found a medical center that routinely administers this treatment and I have an appointment April 15.This is where I need your help. Insurance does not cover healthy solutions so I have to pay 100% of all costs. My first consultation with the doctor will cost $388. Each infusion will be approximately $160 and I will need 3-4 infusions per week to start. I also need to take several supplements along with that to fight cancer and build up my immune system. The cost of this is over $300 a month. So as you can see, a person cannot do this alone. It will take a village. The bare minimum to cover infusions and supplements is almost $37,000 a year. This does not include doctor's fees, transportation, and other expenses incurred while in treatment.
I would appreciate any donation you are willing to give to help me live a quality of life that we all deserve. I also ask for prayers for my husband, Ron, and my family as they support me through this time. Thank you for your support through prayers and donations.
