Help my Mom beat Stage 2 Lung Cancer

$3,302 of $20,000 goal

I wanted to make a post here on a very serious note. Normally I'm joking around about things, trying to get a laugh from everyone, but this time things are a bit different. Some time ago, about a year back, my mom was diagnosed with Stage 2 lung cancer. On top of that, she's had numerous surgeries on her neck and back in the last several years, as well as currently having another severe condition, Esophigitis Candida, which she developed after spending several weeks in the West Hills Hospital. She was in the hospital for several weeks unable to actually eat anything, and she was constantly hooked up to an IV machine. She's lost a considerable amount of weight because of all of this, putting her at less than 90 lbs currently.

She was pushed into trying Keytruda as a means to fight the cancer, however she had a terrible reaction to it. The biggest problem with having this many surgeries over the years is that it has severely compromised her immune system. This compromise has resulted in her getting bronchitis with COPD. Her current doctors have only offered 3 options for recovery: surgery (which would be removing a very large portion of her lung), chemotherapy, and radiation. Given her very weak condition right now, she would be more likely to pass away from any of these choices rather than begin getting healed. 3 of her 4 doctors have privately told her that they personally did not believe she would survive any of these processes.




My mom has been doing a ton of research lately, and she believes we may have found the answer to this horrible situation. There's a hospital in Mexico that focuses on less “conventional” medical processes, and aims for less intrusive and painful ways to combat the cancer, which is obviously the biggest hurdle for us to deal with. What we're trying to do is get her to the Immune Therapy Clinic, which is located in Tijuana, Mexico. There are a couple dozen different techniques for fighting back and beating cancer there, and in fact she's spoken to several people that were patients there that now seem to be cancer free. Some of the current forms of treatment they are specializing in are as follows: Hypothermia, Immunotherapies, B-17, Vitamin C infusions, Gerson therapy, Sonodynamic therapy, Intravenous and oxygen therapy, Herbal and mineral supplements, Dendritic cell vaccines, Rife therapy, Photo-dynamic therapy, and more. The success rate for the clinic is phenomenal, even for Stage 4 cancer patients.




So you understand what this is all about, let me tell you all a bit about my mom, Yvonne. She's always had a very strong influence on me throughout my life and in particular with my career choices over the years. Way back when, I used to model for clothes and such, and she of course was always in my corner. She knew I wasn't 100% into it, and when the time came that I wanted to try my hand at acting, she was all for it. We looked up places for me to study and train, we took care of my head shots and resume together, and before I had my own car, she'd let me use hers' so I could get to all the auditions that I was going on, and if you can remember those, then you can tell that this was a long while ago. She's spent years giving to others, friends and family alike, and has always had a strong sense of charity. She's never asked for help before from anyone, especially for something like this, but she's found that she has run out of options.




We're hoping to have her stay at the facilities in Mexico for a month or so, and we're both very optimistic that this place will make a big difference in her state of living right now. Even that short amount of time could be enough for her to make a strong recovery and fight back against the cancer. Unfortunately, the cost of staying at the facility is a bit higher than we were expecting, so we're asking you all to help out in any way you can.37846384_1552947333128176_r.jpeg

Here's mom in bed, hooked up to the IV machine. It really helps, and she can get down fluids, hence the juice she's drinking. We want to thank everyone that's already donated, you guys are fantastic!
