My name is Maria Orona, sister of Adriana “Osumy” Armendariz. I am asking for your help in the battle my sister Osumy is fighting against Endometrial Metastasis Cancer of the Omentum. Osumy was born in Saucillo, Chihuahua MX. and has been a teacher of Elementary education since 2003.
After a gynecological surgery in 2017, Metastatic Endometrial Cancer of the Omentum was detected, this was removed with surgery in July 2017. Osumy started the first phase of treatment in the month of August with her first session of chemotherapy and ends the 8 sessions on February 9, 2018.
On Monday January 29, 2018 Osumy met with her Oncoradiologist who informed her she needs to continue therapy 4-5 weeks after completion of chemotherapy. The additional treatments include 28 radiation sessions and 3 sessions of High Rate Brachytherapy. Osumy’s health insurance does not cover these additional treatments, the cost of which is $17,122.11.
Osumy’s doctor told her she must complete these treatments in spite of the financial hardship to help ensure she can live a long healthy life. The doctor also indicated she must have the treatments within 4-5 weeks of completing chemotherapy so the amount of time to gather the monies is limited. We have been struggling with all our energy to fight against the cancer, but gathering these amounts has been impossible.
We need your help for the treatment, no matter how small, everything will help.
How will we use the money?
