In my own words ~
Hello to you, and thank you for your interest & willingness to support me on my path to total healing!
On April 5, 2017, I was diagnosed with " triple negative invasive ductal carcinoma" breast cancer (stage 2). This was shocking news for me to receive, as my father had just passed the day prior to my diagnosis, succumbing to his own advanced pancreatic cancer.
The type of cancer in my body is being labeled as "triple negative", a rare and aggressive form which is less responsive to treatments than other forms of breast cancer. I have also just learned that I have the highest grade of aggressiveness for this type of cancer. Doctors are recommending surgery and at least 6 rounds of chemotherapy as treatment, and have suggested to move quickly to avoid the spread into my lymph and the rest of my body. I have elected to have a bilateral (double) mastectomy, as the type of cancer I have also has a higher recurrance rate than other forms, and I want to minimize my chances of going through this again! After surgery, it will be determined whether or not I need radiation. I have been advised that if I remain cancer free for 2 years after my treatment, we can feel more sure that it won't recur in other parts of my body. At this time, I have been told that the rate of recurrance with the recommended treatments is 15-20%, as opposed to 50% recurrance rate without the suggested treatments.
I am also following a holistic protocol to dissolve the cancer and support my body with the allopathic treatments, and am doing the following to optimize my health: organic vegan diet, juicing, RSO, enemas, yoga/exercise, prayer, meditation, and energetic healing.
I am a mother to my two beloved children, Ixchel and Angel, and I am 100% committed to fully rid my body of cancer in order to be present for my children and be here by their side as they grow. I want to witness all of the big and small moments of their lives, and god willing, i will! I also commit to fulfill my soul purpose on Earth, in humble and loving service to the ways I am most needed here.
Given my treatment plan, I have extensive costs to shoulder which are not covered by my insurance. I will need to take a leave of absence from my job during treatment, and I've found that state disability will not be enough to cover my monthly expenses or medical bills. I am grateful for any monetary gift you are willing to contribute.
I am absolutely certain that with the support of my loving community, I will overcome this and will come out the other side stronger and transformed. Please know that I offer you gratitude and love that flows from an infinite source. I am ETERNALLY GRATEFUL for your help.
Infinite Oceans of Love,

P.S. I have decided to video blog this journey as a way to offer updates to you all, and also serve as inspiration to others walking this path back to wholeness, to create community and connection amongst us all. I also want to give visibility into this journey for those, like me, who may need to learn a lot fast, and to not feel alone in all the feels that cancer brings up. If you would like to follow my journey, you can find me on youtube by following the link in the video I posted above. ALL LOVE TO YOU, ALWAYS!!!! Hug your loved ones close today and let them know how much you love them!!!!!!!! <3
P.P.S. If you send the monetary gift to my Venmo account, I receive the full amount. (Find me at venmo: @golden-drake ). Or my paypal is: paypal.me/goldendrake
Go Fund Me takes about 8% of all gifts. I also just found out that I will be taxed on all funds (monetary gifts) raised by Go Fund Me. Venmo seems like the best option. If you happen to have more info on this, please message me. Thanks! <3
