My name is Cristhian Delgado, I have been married to a Marine Corp veteran for the past 11 years. Together we are the parents of Ohani 9, Alex 8, and Gloria who is our youngest at 5years old. I am 31 years old and have been diagnosed for the 3rd time in 8 years with a not to common form of cancer called Retroperioneal Liposarcoma, which manifest itself in the fatty tissue within our body. Tissues who's roles is to encapsulate our organs and inter connect them to rest of our body.
I was first diagnosed in August of 2009, and with a lengthy surgery, the doctors where able to remove the tumor along with my left kidney. After a couple months of healing I was able to continue on with my life without the need for chemotherapy or radiation. 5years after being cancer free, I was once again diagnosed in August of 2014. This time however chemotherapy was the only option. Surgery would become and option only after I had chemotherapy with results showing that the tumors had shrunk. So I listened to my doctors submitted myself and agreed to run poison through my body in an attempt to rid my body from this cancer. After 2 sessions of aggressive chemotherapy which required me to become in-patient and receive continuous 20 hour treatment for 3 consecutive days my doctors saw what they needed to see to give the green light for surgery. After several months of recovery from this second invasive surgery, I decided with my doctors advice that chemotherapy would be a great option to rid my body of whatever might be left lingering around. And so it happened.
In March of 2016 the re-occurrence of liposarcoma was found deep with in my abdomen again, with the news that it has metastasizes onto my last kidney. Just 1year after my last chemotherapy session. The only option my doctors and my second opinion doctors have given me is chemotherapy, maybe clinical trials that consist of chemotherapy. Surgery is not an option and I am not a viable candidate to receive a transplant from the national kidney list or from any one else willing to donate one for me. This is because the medicine that I would have to take for the rest of my life will suppress my immune system, which would allow the cancer to become uncontrollable.
When I was recovering from my last chemotherapy session I decided that if this disease was to come back I would look for alternative medicine, and or treatments. I would never submit myself to chemo again. Its not any way to live, its not fair for my family, or for my children to see their mother in that state. Its not fair for me, for my body, I'm literally killing it slowly, and faster than it was meant to die. I have found so many alternative cures, non of which require chemotherapy. I have been transformed and fully believe that cancer can be cured by changing our eating habits. But to be even more successful with your cure, it has to be done prior to any type of chemotherapy or radiation. It has become a personal mission of mine to prove my theory and thousands of others theory correct. I have found a center in Myrtle Beach SC, called Natural Healing Center. The center is going to help me in this journey. I need to take drastic measures while trying to maintain and preserve my last kidney. This is my last and only option.
My husband and I have exhausted our options and it is unbelievable to me that insurance company are more than willing to spend hundreds of thousand of dollars for chemotherapy or surgery in the treatment of cancer; but wont dare touch a bill that is less that $20,000.00 for a treatment that will actually cure the disease.
The money that I am asking for will all go towards my treatment and my stay; it is a three week long program that the facility offers. I have high hopes that I can raise enough money to be able to do 2, three week long treatments. Please feel free into looking into the facility that is going to change my life with your help.
I hope to be able to return to school and finish my Sustainable Agricultural degree and further my studies into someday becoming a nutritionist or someone that is able to help guide someone faced with cancer without having to go through chemotherapy. You all will know the difference and the impact you will have in my life,my husbands and specially in my children's life. I am not going down without a fight and it is my hope that you will help me in this fight. Bless anyone that reads and shares my story. Cris
