In October of 2012, I was diagnosed with Large B Cell Lymphoma. While the prognosis is good and I am reacting very well to treatment, they are extensive and will last well into 2013. After that I will have two weeks of radiation. Currently, I get around well thanks to great medications for nausea, appetite, and energy, but my immune system is very compromised and I can't be around masses of people that would be required of me as a flight attendant. So work is out of the question at this time. One thing I have learned from the last time having cancer is to not rush back to work. Gaining one's strength and getting blood levels where they should be is very important.
I am now living on savings and the good graces of family and am waiting for long term disability which will start in March 2013. I do not live a lavish lifestyle, but would like to keep my quality of life. Unfortunately, at 50% of salary, LTD only pays so much. Any help is greatly appreciated. All donations will be used to pay essential bills including rent, electric, utilities, insurance, car loan, and medical bills.
Thank you for your kind consideration in this time of uncertainty.
