On May 29th 2017 we walked into the ER worried, but never thought our world would be turned upside down. My wife Espy (short for Esperanza) is a loving mother, a dedicated wife, an amazing daughter, a loyal friend, and an all around great person. A few months ago she felt under the weather we thought it was the flu. She went to her primary Dr and got treatment for possible pneumonia. One month later a dry cough persisted followed by fatigue and weight loss. She was given stronger anti biotics but 2 weeks into it she didnt get any better. On may 29th she woke up in the morning a little puffy in the face and very tired. She took a nap and when she awoke her face was very swollen. We went to the ER and after alot of questions, and a cat scan they told us that she could not leave because they found fluid around her lungs, fluid around her heart, and swollen limphnodes. after a biopsy and blood work She was diagnosed with Mediastinal B-cell lymphoma. Her world was shaken to the core. She cried in fear, I stood their in shock, helpless to help her in any way. All I could do was tell her Be strong baby, dont worry we are going to fight this, I promise! On the inside i wept, but I could not cry or break down in front of her, I had to be her rock and her support. She is so young and we have a little girl that needs her mom to love her, play with her, and most of all be there for her. Due to her treatment she will not be working as much as she was and will possibly be On FMLA. Her insurance wont cover everything and there is some hardship that comes along with these situations, so we are asking for your Assistance. Help me keep my promise, anything that you can do to keep her hopes up would be a blessing.
From the bottom of our heart Thank you
