Imee Asumen Ornales was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer and had admirably battling cancer since 2014. Imee is a very positive and enthusiastic person and anyone that knows her has been warmed by her smile and spirit. She is a beautiful person inside and out who does so much for so many. She works so hard to provide the needs of her 4 children ages 25, 20, 18 and 10. Her strong faith in God keeps her going. She believed that God has a reason for allowing things to happen.
The Bible tells us, “For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).
We may never understand His wisdom, but we simply have to trust His will.
In 2014, Imee found a sizable lump in her breast. After testing, the result was highly suspicious for malignancy. In 2016, she was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer and had spread to her eye, neck, rib and hip. She bravely underwent very aggressive treatment including single mastectomy, 20 radiation therapy and hormonal therapy to get rid of the cancer. In July 2018, metastatic tumors were found in her brain and her liver function has been severely compromised. She refused to do the conventional treatment again. She believed that healing ultimately happens holistically and is borne from deep faith and willingness. She was confined in the Natural Medical Center for a month. During her stay, she was given multiple IV to remove the bubbles that cuts the blood supply off her brain. Her condition was gradually improving but unfortunately the Center had to close.
The family could really use your help.
Imee had her follow-up check-up a week ago by another naturopathic doctor and was advised to be confined for at least 3 months as soon as possible. It is going to be very expensive and the family fund have been exhausted. We are asking family members, friends, co-workers and even strangers who read her story and are impacted by it to help us, as no contribution is too small to make an impact. The funds will go directly to Imee’s medical expenses.
Thank you for taking the time to read her story. We will post updates with regards to Imee’s treatment and progress.
