Hello, my name is Quinton Washington and I am from the broome county NY area. I'm trying to raise money for my wife Patricia Washington. To give you some background.
Back in June of 2017 my wife and I got pregnant with our first child. We were excited about our pregnancy because we have been trying previously but had little success. Although we were excited about the great news that we were having a baby, Patricia had been experiencing some issues in her abdominal area prior to getting pregnant. My wife thought it may have been her gallbladder or something of that nature. Fast forward a couple of months. She went to a walk in clinic where nurses urged her to go to an ER for a potential gallbladder removal surgery. When we went to the hospital, they ran tests and did ultrasound tests on her abdomen. Turns out her gallbladder was fine, but she had a tumor growing out of her right kidney that was 12cm by 14cm. In July of 2017 After some tests It was confirmed that Patricia had cancer in her right Kidney. She was 7 weeks pregnant at the same time. Patricia was not only pregnant with a child, but she was diagnosed with a children's cancer known as Wilms tumor. This is very rare to have in adults let alone being pregnant as well. We were referenced to a urologist in Syracuse NY at upstate hospital. He took a look at our case and he wanted to remove the kidney immediately. The cancer was seemingly contained in the kidney.
In August of 2017 Patricia had a major surgery in which her entire right Kidney was removed. At this point she was still pregnant. After the surgery Patricia was now on the road to recovery, but for safe keeping she had to get Chemotherapy to rule out any other cancer cells that may have been in her body.
In October of 2017 Patricia underwent Chemotherapy up until February of 2018 when she gave birth to our beautiful daughter Adeline Faith Washington. Then thereafter Patricia had to complete 3 more Chemotherapy treatments.
In May of 2018 Patricia had scans done and praise the Lord we were finally in the clear. After a really long, hard year Patricia was finally in remission from the cancer. As many might know when you're diagnosed with cancer, after you're done you still have to come in for regular scans. To check up on things.
In February of 2019 Patricia got another scan and they found lesions in her liver. After more tests and a biopsy of the Liver. Patricia had been again diagnosed with the same cancer. But this time it metastasized into the liver.
Now we are looking at doing more aggressive treatment.
We're now in April of 2019 and Patricia is facing to do Chemotherapy and radiation for the liver. Being admitted in Upstate hospital every 3 weeks for a week for treatment. After 3 months, she'll get radiation everyday for 3 weeks.
It's going to be another long journey and long road to recovery. We are looking at 6 + months of treatment. Lots of traveling from home to Syracuse. On a weekly to daily basis.
So I'm requesting help on her behalf because she will be out of work and both of us work and have jobs, but she brings in more than half or our income. So we're hoping & praying to raise some money and requesting help with bills, rent, travel & medical expenses.
With having a 1 year old at home and her momma away for so long, we are praying for all the help we can get!
We are trusting in the Lord for helping us through this time once again. However we need some help financially. Again any and all proceeds will go to bills, hospital bill's and travel to help us get through this process.
I sincerely thank you in advance for your support and giving in our time of need.
Be blessed in Jesus name!
