My name is Mariela. I am in my 30s , I am from CT. I have a small family that I adore and I am the oldest out of 3. I do not have any kids of my own but God willingly one day I will.
In mid November 2020 I had a regular check up and was told I was positive for cancer. My whole world mentally came crashing down as I didn’t know how to take the information. Am I going to die? Am I going to start losing my hair ? What stage do I have ? I haven’t even started a family or reached my dreams.. what does this mean ?
My doctor immediately recommended surgery since the tumor seemed to be small enough to be able to operate, So I did.
I came back 2 weeks later to get the pathology results and my Doctor explained that they were not able to get all of it...... I have never been so confused !! What does this mean !? WHY!!
What is the next step?
The next step was to get more surgery, I prepared myself for it and got it done, Still they were not able to get all of my cancer out, another one was scheduled.
On December 9th I had a (Trachelectomy) where they opened me up and do a laparoscopic where they go in and explore.
The surgery went well but my recovery was horrible. But I thank my mother for taking care of me and making things easier.
I will be going for the results for that surgery in the upcoming weeks to see what the doctors found and if they were able to get the cancer out this time . As scared as I am, As the days pass by I have been getting more stabled mentally and accept this new ride life has thrown at me.
As many emotions as I had felt and still feel I am not giving up. Sometimes I feel so low and other times I tell myself I am so strong and can’t nothing over power me.
After all I still have dreams , ambitions , goals , so much life to live.
I ask anyone reading this to honor me by praying for me , that means the world to me.
Money can’t and will not bring me my health back or make me happy like I was once again.
Anything raised is to help me out with my future dreams of returning back to school without the worry of not being able to go because of the small debt I have acquired & Hospital bills. I Thank anyone in advance for your time, your kindness and God will repay you a million times over for helping. I know that for a fact !
