Surviving Metastatic Breast Cancer!

Hi! My name is Krysti and I am currently fighting Stage IV Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) that has metastasized to my lung. And as of recently, we just found out that it has also spread to my brain, leaving me with four inoperable tumors. I am 30 years old and a single mother to my wonderful son Jonathan, who is 5 years old. He is the light of my life!! The last year since being diagnosed on May 1, 2013 has certainly been a whirlwind of surgeries, treatments and emotions. In June of 2013 I had my first surgery, a mastectomy. Since then I have had chemotherapy treatment for 16 weeks, radiation for 5 weeks, and 4 additional surgeries to remove tumors, including my most recent surgery on March 27th to remove a portion of my left lung that contained a tumor. I still have at best, a few more surgeries and some additional treatments before I can be on the road to recovery. As you can imagine, this has created a huge list of expenses that include but are not limited to medical/hospital bills, prescription costs, gas for traveling to and from appointments, and normal bills that have been neglected due to not being able to work. Any little bit helps us to get by and not drown in medical bills. My family and I sincerely appreciate the time you took to read my story, and are forever thankful for any assistance you can offer us. Despite my current diagnosis, I am still up for the fight so I can be here to watch my son grow up, and I am hoping to get a normal life back one day in the future. I feel blessed and humbled to have so many people praying for me to get better!



A MILLION THANK YOU'S TO YOU ALL!! :)
