Beating Cancers Butt

As many of you all know myname is Luz Perez and at the young age of 18 I was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma. Ewing is a extremely rare type of cancer. Before knowing this I had horrible back pain for over 7 months but every time I went to the doctors they would brush it off by saying it was muscle pain. Eventually one day they did a scan and found a 5.8 x 4.5 cm mass on my 11th rib, pushing up against my lungs. The tumor has now grown to about 7.5 cm. Finding out I had cancer and having to get chemo put a huge stop on my life. I had to stop working and had to put a stop to school and had to do a medical withdrawal. Sadly I am also a DACA student and I receive no financial aid. So the money that I paid for my tuition this year I lost. I am starting this fund so I can have help for so that when I'm finished with treatment and beating cancers ass I can be ready to go back to school and be able to pay for it. I am currently doing chemotherapy, and will soon be doing radiation and getting surgery as well along the way. I thank you so much for reading this and really hope you will help me go through this hard journey. Anything helps even if it's a dollar, thank you!
