My name is Serynna and I'm the oldest of Gam's 5 granddaughters. My goal for starting this GoFundMe page is to help my Gam with out-of-pocket medical expenses. You may be asking yourself, "well who is Gam and why should I help her?"
Gam is a 2x Stage 3 Breast Cancer Champion, scratch that, WARRIOR! In April of 2003 and April of 2006, Gam was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer in her right breast. By the grace of God, she overcame it both times. Eleven years later, April of 2017, she was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer in her left breast. Currently, she is undergoing a 3.5hr aggressive chemotherapy (carboplatin & taxotere) treatment. Thankfully, her health insurance covers 80% of her medical bills but in order for her to keep her health insurance, she has to continue working. Unfortunately, the effects of her chemo treatment leave her feeling fatigued, nauseous, dizzy, and weak. It also causes her to have constant migraines and various vomiting episodes. As a result, she has not been able to complete a full day's work. Every morning she perseveres through her pain & suffering to make ends meet. Without your help, this will be Gam's reality for the next 6months. She will constantly work until physically impossible because she can not afford to lose her job or health insurance.
Being that this is her 3rd time struggling to overcome cancer, all I ask for is a donation of ANY kind. I'm trying my best to reach out to ANYONE willing to help. If you are not able to donate, please, please, please share her story & use the following hashtags:
If you'd like to be apart of Gam's journey stay tuned for video & picture updates.
p.s. For people that know Gam, you know she's very prideful & will probably kill me for doing this. I'm sorry but I'm just not one to sit back & watch her struggle when there's other ways. Again, ANY and ALL donations are accepted & GREATLY appreciated as well as the sharing of her story.
I would like to end with a bible verse that describes Gam:
"She is clothed in strength & dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future"
Thank You to everyone in advance! .xo
