Lourdes is a single mother of three kids, two older boys and one girl named Erielle. 4 years ago, she was diagnosed with HER2 positive breast cancer, and her whole world changed. HER2 breast cancer is when a protein called human epidermal growth factor receptor 2, which promotes the growth of cancer cells. Because it was found at an early stage, she was able to treat it and become cancer free in 2015. She had to undergo reconstructive surgery However, she had lost alot during this time: She had to take a huge paycut because she was unable able to travel for her work.
On August 29th, 2018, her doctor told her to go to the emergency room as soon as possible, because her platelets were extremely low. One week later, she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). She was hospitalized for six weeks because her immune system was so weak. She is now an outpatient at Memorial-Sloan Kettering. She's fighting as hard as she can, but she has already fought for her life once before, but this time, she cannot do it on her own. Currently she is undergoing rounds of chemotherapy, while she awaits her bone marrow transplant.
The donations will be used to help her with a few medical expenses, but mainly to support her daughter and her home, since she is unable to make any income during this time and the foreseeable future, until the disease subsides. We truly thank anyone who can help with any donation, no matter how small. God Bless you all.
