Georgina Vs The Big Bad Tumor

Hello my name is Georgina Palma I am 55 years old and married with two daughters. I was recently diagnosed with a very rare, very large Schwannoma tumor. In 2011 my husband Carlos Palma injured himself at work and lost his job. Shortly after my mother got severly ill and all her medical expenses were not covered by her insurance so we had to completely deplete our savings trying to cover her and my husband's medical costs that were not covered by insurance causing me to declare bankruptcy. This is why I am reaching out to everyone. It's taking me a lot of courage to swallow my pride and reach out for help. The tumor that I have is located in my throat and I was told it was crushing my vocal cords, spinal cord, and my carotid artery. Unfortunately it is inoperable because it is too large and very high risk because of the location. This tumor is making it hard for me to breathe, speak, and even eat. I will require numerous radiation treatments in hopes to shrink the tumor and do not have the funds nor insurance to cover this treatment. We are already struggling to make ends meet and are living day to day, so any help would be very highly appreciated. Thank you and God bless you all.

Hola mi nombre es Georgina Palma tengo 55 anos, estoy casada con dos hijas. Fui diagnositcada con un tumor nombrado Schwanomma, es un caso raro y mas por que el tumor esta muy grande. . En 2011 mi esposo Carlos se lastimo en el trabajo y perdio su trabajo. No mucho despues de eso mi mama se enfermo y fallecio, sus gastos medicos no estaban completamente cubiertos por su seguro medico, tuvimos que usar nuestros ahorros para cubrir los gastos de mi mama y los gastos de mi esposo que tambien no estaban cubiertos por los seguros medicos.Por causa de esto tuve que declarme en bankarrota. Por esto estoy pidiendole a todos por su ayuda. Me esta tomando mucho valor para poner mi orgullo a un lado y pedir por su ayuda. El tumor esta localizado en mi garganta y me han dicho que esta poniendo presion contra mis cuerdas vocales, mi espina dorsal, y mi arteria carótida. Desafortunadamente no es operable porque esta muy grande y esta localizado en una parte que si se opera, es de alto riezgo. El tumor me afecta para comer, para respirar, y para hablar. Voy a necesitar varios tratamientos de radiacion en esperanzas que puedan hacer el tumor mas pequeno, pero no tenemos los fondos para los tratamientos o la aseguranza para cubrirlos. Ya estamos batallando para sobrevivir y estamos viviendo dia a dia, entonces qualquier ayuda va hacer enternamente agradecido. Muchas gracias y que Dios los bendiga!
