My name is Amanda Ramirez, and I'm a 22 year old creative from Compton California. I'm young, just started living honestly. Life hits us in unexpected ways, and unfortunately I've been affected with something so out of my control that it seems unreal. Tuesday August 23rd 2016 I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma Stage 3 cancer. It's needless to say that I was devastated, but I believe in God's plans and timing. I have chemo therapy, and it's one of the most uncomfortable things I've ever had to endure. After chemo I'm weak and nauseated, so much so that it's hard to stand. I'm a vibrant individual and as of late my light isn't shining as brightly. I've been unemployed for the past 2 months because of my condition, and honestly it's put me in quite the financial rut. I'm trying to raise money not only to pay for treatment, but I'd also like to raise money for an alternative treatment as well. I'd like to get my hands on CBD oils that can help me defeat cancer completely. With god's help I know that things will change in my favor soon and I'd be so thankful if you'd help in those changes! There's a constant feeling of worry that plagues my mind. I'm extremely positive, despite the way I physically feel, my mental state is very intact. There are days where I want to give up, but there are many people that look to me for comfort and assurance. I realize that it's bigger than me, God has given me this to show the world that you can be fierce and strong while having a bit of vulnerability. I hope to inspire and help those whom don't feel they can go on with something that weighs on the heart so heavily. believe with your help I'll be able to beat this disease and continue to live a long happy and healthy life while inspiring the youth to love themselves and appreciate life. Please find it in your hearts to help someone in need. I would sincerely appreciate your support. May god bless you all!!!!
