My ordeal began August 20, 2016, when I came out of work. I thought I was having a heart attack. At the hospital my world came crashing down. After many days of testing, the diagnosis was clear...... Leukemia.
I am the sole provider for my family. I have not worked since then.
I was transfered to the Moffit Cancer Center in Tampa, FL for very agressive chemotherapy sessions. This center is 2 1/2 hours from my home in Fort Myers making it difficult for my family and friends to come support me in this fight for life.
My brother Pedro Martinez donated bone marrow for transplant surgery in February. Everything went well . My cancer went into remission for only a short time. The cancer made a comeback in my hip and right eye. I am currently undergoing radiation treatments.
I have drained my savings accounts trying to keep up with my mortgage, bills and medicine. I have bill collectors threatening to turn off utilities and banks wanting to foreclose on my family home. My only safe means of transportation is on the verge of being repossesed. My doctor is 2 1/2 hours away and it is not easy for me to get there and back.
My situation has reached a critical stage and any donation, no matter how small will be apprreciated. Every little bit helps.
Thank you and God bless you always.
