On October 9th 2013, after 2 long years of numerous tests to try and figure out what was going on with Sagal’s health, she was finally diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma Cancer. It’s a type of cancer that affects the lymph nodes, and immune system.
Over the last 6 years, Sagal has gone through numerous treatments from chemotherapy to immunotherapy, all of which she unfortunately relapsed from. On June 5th 2019, Sagal received her latest CT scan results, and it showed that some of the lymph nodes in her chest were getting bigger. There’s been a gradual growth of her lymph nodes this past year and her Canadian care team thinks there are no other treatment options available.
But Sagal is a fighter and she is determined to seek second opinions!
As a result, Sagal has an upcoming appointment at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. But as you may know, the cost of getting a second opinion is very expensive, especially as an international patient.
We are asking for your support of Sagal’s battle with Cancer. By contributing, you will be assisting to cover the expenses of her initial appointments with Mayo Clinic, as well as treatments, travel and accommodation costs.
Sagal’s only wish is to finally beat cancer after so many years. Please help her in her journey!
