Some of you might know Me as, Beyonka, Mary Jane, Jane or Lady Jane DJ. Those names all refer to the same person. I'm originally from Texas but have been living in Washington since 1999 and in Seattle since 2000. Since living in Seattle I've been a student, a tutor, an intern, also worked in the service industry for many years as a bartender, barista, server, but the whole time I have been Lady Jane DJ.
This year has brought the biggest challenge of my life for Me. On August 19th I was diagnosed with High Grade Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Cancer that has spread to my lymph nodes. As I learn more about my stage 3 diagnosis I've become extremely overwhelmed. Especially not knowing what to expect from all of this, as no one in my family has ever had cancer. I'm learning as I go.
I'm currently working when I am able, and when I am able is very minimal to none. Continuing to work will not be an option for me during most of my treatment. When at work for long hours, the mass in my breast would become inflamed from overexertion. Also my arm would start to feel stiff.
Again this situation has all been very overwhelming. So I'm continuing to follow the treatment that my oncologist, Dr. Banda, has planned for me. I'm going thru five months of chemotherapy. First AC chemo, once every 2 weeks for 8 weeks, then T chemo once a week for 12 weeks. Chemotherapy should be the hardest part. There will be some time to recover after chemo, to prep for surgery. After Surgery I'll have more time to recover to prep for radiation. Radiation will be daily. After more recovery time I'm hoping to do reconstructive surgery but we'll see when that time comes. We’re expecting the entire process to take at least 8 months or more.
This is all the last type of information that I have hoped to deliver. Please know that I'm not done living. So when I’ve finally kicked cancer's ass, my plan is to continue living my life. After all of this is over, I'm hoping to find a husband, travel, buy a house, grow a garden, raise pets and continue DJing fun events for all the amazing people that I have met. But this part is not for the Go Fund Me.
So I'm writing all of this for a Go Fund Me. My expenses are Rent, Transportation, Food, Phone, utilities, medical bills that insurance won’t cover and possible home care. Luckly have kept my expenses low. Unfortunately there are still expenses totaling $3000.00 per month, not including medical bills and possible home care. Any help is appreciated. If not monetary, maybe a visit, a ride to the grocery store, a talk to get me out of my head would be appreciated as well.
Wishing You All Blessings of Love and Happiness,
