Carolyn Wright has been fighting breast cancer since first confronting the lump in her breast in 2015.
She has decided not to utilize chemotherapy and surgery. Her oncologists have explained to her that her condition does not have a high rate of survival and that traditional medicine approaches may only prolong her pain and suffering. Since triple negative invasive ductal carcinoma is difficult to cure and will most likely recur regardless of what modern medicine can do; they were merely giving her a death sentence and recommending end of life. Therefore, she is seeking a cure rather than treatment for the symptoms. She needs financial assistance to do so.
Carolyn has too much living to do yet and was enrolled in college at the time of her diagnosis in Graphic Design. She has had to drop out for the time being, but still plans to get back to pursuing an art career as soon as she can overcome this cancer. She wants to ultimately get a bachelor's degree in studio art and a master's in education in order to be able to teach and enrich people's lives through visual thinking. However, more important she would like to find the cure for this problem and help others in the process.
She has a very strong faith in God and through personal revelation believes she is not supposed to die from this. However, she is suffering a great deal and not sure how she is going to live through it as well. She has chosen to fight this battle to the end and if God wills her home then she is at peace with her decision. However, she has been able to keep this aggressive form of cancer controlled from spreading through her body with nutritional supplements she is taking. However, they are very expensive, and she is struggling to make ends meet with the financial burden required to stay alive. We are asking for financial aid and assistance in order to continue to purchase the needed supplements that have helped her get this far. She also needs help for basic day-to-day living expenses as work is becoming very difficult for her.
She is currently working and has a very understanding employer but has not been able to move ahead in her job at this time.
Her story gets more complex within the last few years, as she also went blind in one eye from a cataract and has not been able to get surgery for that because she can't be without work for any length of time.
After she left school she was working three jobs in order to pay for the supplements she needed, and although she was able to slow down the growth of the tumor is has still been able to mutate and fight back against everything she has tried.
She had to quit two of the jobs because they would not accommodate her disability and her insurance employer hired her back for a full-time position. He allows her to sleep on a cot in an extra office room between her split shifts, which enables her to still work full-time and plans to do so up to the very end.
