My mother Angela, is simply amazing, she is a real figther! The fight against cancer started in 2009 when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer named glanulosa cell carcinoma, she had her ovarian and uterus removed in October 2009 with a surgery called a Hysterectomy. Then she recovered well and we thought it was all over.
Then in October 2013 in one of her checkups, we got bad news as a scan test showed cancer, and this time it came back in the liver! So she then had a robotic surgery called Laparoscopy removing the cancer followed by a very strong chemotherapy treatment in the hospital. She lost her hair and was very weak for almost two years following it from the side effects from the chemo.
Then in 2015 the cancer came back again, this time her liver and 7 spots all over her pelvic area! So she had to go in for surgery followed by a different type of chemo. This time the chemo didn't work at all! It only made it worse as the tumors grew. Over the next two years the tumors on the liver grew to 9 centimiters and 11 new spots around pelvic area formed. This time she had no choice but to do another major surgery in January of 2017 to remove all the tumors. This this time there were no more chemo options for her as it was not working.
So after removing these tumors, now just one year later, cancer has come back and is now worse. She now has three tumors and they are telling her she is out of conventional options.
We have seen many different doctors and every single one of those doctors gave her no hope! But that's okay we understand that conventional doctors are limited, they only can treat cutting your body and injecting chemo.
The journey has been very long and difficult, but we know God is in control.. I praise the Lord for every night in the hospital, every surgery, every tear, everything... because I know God is healing and guiding her to the right direction.
weeping may stay for the night,
but rejoicing comes in the morning.
That's when we found a place of hope in California callled Cancer Center for Healing where many people are being treated with amazing success for this type of cancer. They are using cutting edge personalized immunotherepy amoungst other things.
Unfortunatley, the treatments are not covered by health Insurance so we need help to cover the cost of her treatments which are very expensive.
My mother recently has had three grandbabies enter her life (Theo 3 months, Matteo 8 months and Tiffany 3 years) so she has a lot to live for!
Thank You so much for your generosity and help! Our God is a big God and our Faith is strong. We believe in miracles.
God Bless you and your family,
