I love life even though I had to overcome so many challenges in my life, some of them is loosing my father when I was 9 years old, becoming a single mother of two kids while I was a kid myself back home in Guatemala , non of these obstacules have stopped me, they have made me stronger. I have always my mother's moral support when I had no choice but to inmigrate to this country leaving my kids behind to work and financily support my kids and mother;I have always been hardworker, ambicious, friendly and never like to waste time and always trying to learn something new everyday.
finally when my kids were older, I was able to start enjoyin life fours years ago when I was 39 years old, so I started to take care of myself do what I like to do, working out at the gym, socializing, traveling and fowolling my pasion of photography.
Right when I felt it was the best years of my life in March I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer stage III. Just to hear the word "Cancer" is debastaring. I remember the night before I got the biopsy results I asked God not to give me that test in my life because I wasn't goig to be able to handle it, But i was wrong, going through my chemotheraphies which is like going through hell God has give me the strenght I need. God has sent me my friends around me who are like my angels who are supporing me unconditionally, Thank God my mother is with me taking care of me since someday I coudn't even get up from bed. I have cried some days non stop but I always found that light of God inside me helping me to wipe my tears and learing how to surround myself and trusting that he will be in control. Is been a long journey. I have lost my hair which is so hard for some of us woman, I had a treatment of 6 chemotherapies and now I have another ones every 3 weeks for a period of one year.
I will have my double mastectomy on september 21st which I believe God will also give the strenght I need, after that I will need six weeks of radiation every single day. The hospital has become my secong home.
My Bills are pile up nonstop since I been out of work for 6 months and I wont be able to work any time soon since this is a long procces to my cure, I already have dreams to acomplish when this nightmare is over,but for now im not able to work for at least another 6 months, I have always been so independent for so many years and I always been the one providing and never ask for financial help. This is time I'm humbuling ask you to please help with anything you can help, every dollar counts. Beforehand I trully appreacite your generosity. God bless you all.
