After conducting a mammogram, breast ultrasound, and a biopsy, it was determined that mom has Stage III Invasive lobular carcinoma.
The doctor urged that she completes three (3) CT Scans, to further determine the stage of the Cancer.
Guyana ( A third world country in South America and one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere) can only conduct two of the aforementioned CT scans, which is 4X Guyana's minimum wage. The cell receptor exam isn't conducted in Guyana as well, hence, it needs to be done regionally or internationally.
The doctor will need to remove the entire breast (radical mastectomy) which is 7X Guyana's minimum wage.
A series of tests (Receptor, liver, kidney, and cholesterol) also needs to be conducted before the surgery is executed.
Guyana has one of the poorest cancer treatments available.
"Cancer in Guyana has been the top four (4) causes of mortality in Guyana for the past decade" Dr. George Norton
With your aid, I will be able to extend the remaining years I have, with the woman who bore insurmountable amounts of pain, to bring me into this world and raise me to be the person I am today.
The time I have with my mom diminishes with every second that goes by. I'm a public servant in the teaching profession and thus far, I've sold my car and personal belongings, to help neutralize the medical expenses. Our house and land are now on the market, just to cover treatment internationally.
The sooner I can make the payments the better chance I stand at saving the life that gave me life.
Thank you in advance for all of your contributions.
