About 3 years ago my other half was diagnosed with stage 4 colon/rectal cancer right after turning 36. She soon underwent very aggressive radiation and chemotherapy and was able to beat it out with numerous surgeries and her treatments, along with good positive vibes sent our way by family, friends and loved ones.
Now she is about to turn 39 and her cancer has reared it's ugly head once again. Thankfully her amazing doctors at Lankenau hospital here in Philly were able to catch it fairly early. She has just started her radiation treatments. Thankfully they do not see a need for chemo at the moment and we hope it does stay that way.
Now I would love to tell you about the woman who puts a smile on my face every day. Chelsea the woman I met and have been with for about 10 years now. She is absolutely the kindest, loving and toughest woman to ever be in my life. She is the last person I would ever imagine this happening to. She has really gone through a lot between surgeries and treatment. Enough to not even have fully recovered from the last surgery which was just about a year ago.
The reasons behind me starting the campaign is to help with medical costs and bills, food to help keep her weight up and honestly whatever else she needs to make her as comfortable as possible. The food is very important because Chelsea is a very tiny girl hovering around the 100 lbs mark. One of the things she has not fully recovered from. She started at 120 lbs and I have seen her go as low as 75 lbs due to certain complications from surgeries. She has taken on a certain diet to help combat the cancer with tons of research on cancer fighting foods along with cooking as much food from scratch.
Positive vibes, messages and advice are always welcome and encouraged. Any donation is more the gracious and we both couldn't be more appreciative and grateful for your kindness and support. If there is anyone who has gone through or known someone who has gone through something similar and you have a story, we would love for you to share. These are all things that will help greatly in this next endeavour with this ugly disease.
I will be posting updates and progress throughout the months so you can see how everything you're doing to help is actually helping.
Again and I can't say this enough, thank you for your time, kindness, positive vibes, sharing and support in this.
