Nana's Fight For Life

Last October 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer.  My oncolodgist informed me that traditional treatments of chemo and radiation would not cure my cancer.  Actually her words were, "I don't have a hammer big enough to kill your cancer.  If I get out that hammer, it will kill you."  So I asked what would happen to me without those treatments.  She said, "You have a year, if you are lucky."  Wow, that was a lot to digest!  The old cliche of having your life flash before your eyes really did happen to me. I am a fighter, I always have been. Of course I want to live, and I am going to beat this disease with the treatments that are available to me at the International Bio Care Hospital.

Shortly after I received my diagnosis, a local man in the community shared his story in the newspaper about his cancer journey and how he overcame his death sentence of three months.  He was treated at the International Bio Care Hospital over two years ago and is still cancer free today.  Due to his story appearing in a local newspaper, several people from our local community have been successfully treated at Bio Care and are doing well.  Please check out the hospital link above. Their success stories are true and amazing. My story is real and my time is short. My wish is to get to Mexico soon, while I have a healthy body for them to work with.

My health insurance does not cover this program and I do not have the funds or assests to liquidate in order to receive these treatments.  I desperately need your help.  I am unable to work due to my illness.  My spouse was permanently injured in 2009 and has been handicapped since that time.  We live on very moderate social security and disability benefits. 

I have three beautiful daughters and between the three of them, I have eighteen grandchildren.

It's a beautiful life and world, and with your help, I may continue to have time with my loved ones and family.

Thank you....
