Fighting for My Life

Hello,

My name is Christie Lea Watson (Graf) and I am a mother of 3 children that need me so much. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, undergoing treatments & surgeries for 2yrs, to my 1st battle against cancer and I survived for the time being.

In June 2014 her eyesight started to fail & she was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer that Metastasized throughout my entire body with over 50 tumers. I have 10 tumorors in my brain and 40 plus throughout my entire bones, liver, lungs and over all body. I am in the battle of my life.

This past year through nonstop treatments & surgeries, I managed to save my eyes & gain control over this illness for the time being. Unfortunately, I stopped responding to chemotherapy several months ago & the cancer is growing quickly beyond control and I am so scared for my life.  I am is now considering alternative therapies or starting a new therapy regimen with my Oncologist but I am so along with my tumor growth I really do nt know what will work since I am so far along.

Unfortunately, my health insurance has high deductibles & will not be renewing its contract with Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute (FCS) or team of outstanding doctor's that have over seen her care to save my life so I will completely be on my own financially soon and will have no way to afford or pay to survive in this world. My medication alone cost me over $1500.00 a month and I have no way to pay them to survive.

My family has been great and helping me but the costs are too much for them but they always help where they can. Im staying at my mothers full time now because I have no home and need full time care.  

As I prepare for this next battle for my life, I ask you to please help with the  financial struggles I am facing now & ahead. If you are able to make any contribution it would be greatly appreciated it . Raising money for Christie's medical & living expenses is our #1 goal as a family, so I may focus on my health & getting better so that I may watch my children grow up and be strong.

My primary focus, to stay strong &  determined with a passionate belief in faith & healing. My family & friends keep spirits high & faith strong, it's through my 3 children & grandson, my heart remains overjoyed with pride & a love only a mother knows. My attitude is not only brave, but with a never-ending mindset to fight harder & never give up hope, always believe, & embrace life every second. We thank you.
