However, for years I have dealt with a disability concerning my spine. For years I have dealt to have pain on the left side of my back which gave me so much discomfort that the pain would make me feel weak and short of breath. I went to the doctor thinking that it had something to do with the back surgery that was performed many years ago. My doctor referred me to a Pain Management for treatment's getting injections in my spine time after time and time after time and no relief so after about a one and half years; I just gave up. I did not know what else to do but suffer and just live with the agony.
A week before Thanksgiving 2015, I fell in my home and the pain got worse on my left side. I was taking to the hospital but ER could not find anything from the x-rays and was told to follow up with my family doctor. The next day I went to my doctor and he order a bone scan. When the results came back I was told I was in stage 4 breast cancer, that the disease had spread to my bones in my back.
My journey is very hard all I want is LIFE to LIVE . It is so frighten when you worried about the finances that you will need; not just now, but the months to come for treatments. This sick disease is very serious and cannot to be taken lightly. I been through this before but now I am older and unemployed, which makes it even scarier. I have faith that one day there will be a cure; you will be able to just walk into the doctor's office and get a shot to cure the disease. While that will happen one day, unfortunately that is not the case today.
I have never ask for help from anyone in my life. I believe in helping others because of the good feeling you get; whether it is big or small. However, today I am asking for help. I never dreamed that I would be in such a dark place in my life to ask for financial assistance. But, I just want to LIVE and be pain free!! I am disable due of the physical problems that I face everyday and now it is very hard. The treatments are so intense and expensive. I need help financially with doctor bills and especially with my medicine and the chemo injections.
I would appreciate whatever you can give. Thank you and God Bless each and everyone of you.
