Help a mom of 3 fight cancer!!

I'm really no good at all at fundraising for myself, I can't help but feel ashamed when I ask of others and embarrassed when I get no reply's at all. I honestly don't know what to even say to you to get you to donate to me, a stranger you've never met. I can tell you that I've worked most of my life, that my husband is a workaholic and always has a job even if it means he's starting over from the bottom. Sometimes circumstances change everything. Mine was being diagnosed with a rare cancer and it becoming resistant to two different chemo's, and then being re-diagnosed with an even rarer form of the cancer, so rare that I have no statistics to share with you and my doctors have little to know knowledge on how to treat me. I've been battling quiescent gestational trophoblastic neoplasia for 19 months now, at the moment my doctors have no idea if there will ever be a cure for me. I lost my insurance 3 months ago because my husband lost his job due to cutbacks, he's working now but as a temp, no insurance. We owe our hospital/doctors thousands of dollars. I pay out of pocket for all my meds and because my husband has to work overtime to pay the bills we don't qualify for any assistance. We have 3 daughters, two of which are getting ready to start back at school and I don't have the money to buy them what they need. My youngest is only 3yrs old, she knows my cancer center like the back of her hand because she's been going there with me since she was barely 18 months old. We've sold everything off that we could to make the bills while I was on chemo, what we didn't sell we used for equity in loans, we are almost 20,000 in debt at this point. I'm reaching out to society and hoping and praying they embrace our situation and donate, I'm afraid if we keep going deeper and deeper in debt that we may lose our house or car which we struggle monthly to make the payments on. Please look into your hearts to help us during this time of need and donate, help make my battle with cancer a little bit less stressful...


If you you want to know more about me, here's my story....

Hello, my name is Virginia Miller and I live in northern KY. 19 months ago I was diagnosed with a molar pregnancy that became invasive and gave me a rare form of cancer called gestational trophoblastic neoplasia. This type of cancer is extremely aggressive and once in the blood stream it can travel and metastasize before you even know you have it. Most cases have a cure rate between 80-100%, however after months of chemo therapy my cancer became chemorefractory (chemo resistant). After trying two different single agent chemo's and failing, my cancer cells went into a dormant phase as they metastasized throughout my body, now semi active my oncologists can't figure out where my cancer is and because this type of cancer is very rare, they don't have a protocol on how to treat me. I really need to see someone who specializes in trophoblastic diseases. The financial and emotional hardships that this disease has caused my family is tremendous. My husband recently lost his job 3 months ago due to down sizing and with that loss also went our insurance. We are struggling month to month to pay our bills as we battle this horrible disease. We have three children, the youngest one only being 3yrs old. I hate having to ask for help, but we need it. My husband is working through a temp service and I am working when my medical issues allow me too, but it's become a struggle just to pay the bills and put food on the table. I know a lot of people have these gofundme pages and in today's world it's hard to be charitable when there are so many scams out there. I really don't know what I can tell you to make you understand our struggle is real, you're more than welcome to come to my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/virginia.miller.547) and get to know me, talk to me, I can show you proof of diagnosis if you need to see it, I promise you, I'm real, my disease is real and our dire situation is real. Please consider donating and helping us out. God bless!
