I would like to tell you my story
I am of Cuban nationality where I lived until March 2013 to travel to the United States, a wonderful country that welcomed me and to which I owe my life today ....
Going back a bit earlier in history in September 2012 at the age of 38 I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer lymph node and lung metastases. Basically with only 6 months of life. We all know that Cuba is a country with few resources, although I received the necessary treatment. I underwent bilateral mastectomy and chemotherapy.
Supposedly cured in March 2013 I'm going to the United States. In my first review, the doctors see that something is not right and they decide that I need radiation to complete the treatment. After 33 sections of radiation the tumor markers had tripled their value demonstrating that the disease was still present.
September 2013 Only one year after my diagnosis I received chemotherapy for the second time for seven months the longest and most difficult time of my life ...... To date in chemotherapy for almost 5 years without interruption, managing to control the disease. Thank God that I never abandoned myself and this wonderful country that welcomed me and allowed me to have the best treatments.
The reason I ask for your help is because since January 2017 despite being treated the tumor markers began to increase in value quickly, which shows a recurrence of the disease. I need an alternative treatment that does not cover any medical insurance, but in which I have put all my hope of regaining my health and once again overcome the battle against cancer.
I have to try another alternative because apparently my body has adapted to the treatment I have received in the last 4 years. The treatment is very expensive Chinese traditional medicine, are different treatments to control the growth of these bad cells is like a chemo, but only attacks the bad cells, is not good and bad as chemo and does not give the side effects as strong as The chemo
Chinese Medicine and Integrative Oncology
- Astragalus Immunotherapy
- Tripterygium Wilfordii Extract
If we stop controlling this new recurrence my life is in danger, they know that this is a very aggravating disease and many lose the battle. I ask for your help to pay for this new treatment. I have faith in God that my story touches his heart and with his help can overcome once again the battle against cancer.
I am the mother of two daughters that I adore, they are the reason that drives me to go ahead, sometimes without strength, they have suffered at my side all stages of this hard disease and I do not want to go through this pain again
