as a non-smoker, non-tobacco user, and non-singer i never in my life would have guessed i would be diagnosed with vocal cord cancer at the age of 25. at first i assumed it was my allergies gone bad.. after about 6 months of an extremely raspy voice i finally talked to my allergist who referred me to an ent doctor. right away the ent doctor
discovered a nodule that covered about 50% of my right vocal cord. several weeks later, surgery was performed when the discovered that i had stage one cancer. although, my cancer is in a good stage it's been a very difficult journey. as a teacher (of 4 year olds) and a server, i had to give up both jobs, considering they both require full time talking. i have not been able to do either job during the radiation treatments, and will not be able to start either again for another 6 weeks after i am done. seeing that i have no income, the bills are becoming overwhelming, and my insurance is not helping at all i am asking for any donations possible. i appreciate more than anyone will ever know, and i will pay it forward. thank you for your kindness and love!
