In September of 2016 Wendy was diagnosed with stage 4B cervical cancer and a fracture in her hip from the result of the cancer metastasizing to her bones and weakening her bones. Shortly after her hip did fail and break while she was home alone. It was required that she have surgery immediately. Since that time Wendy has endured 10 rounds of radiation back to back and 13 rounds of chemotherapy every 3 weeks. She has stayed strong and vigilant with a positive attitude not letting this horrible disease beat her down and break her spirit, SHE IS TOUGH!
On August 10th 2017 Wendy was told by her doctor that the chemotherapy was no longer working and her cancer had begun to grow again. They suggested immunotherapy. In my desperation I contacted the Cancer Centers of America and the arrangements were made for our trip there for another opinion of her condition and possible other treatment options. Unfortunately the results were the same.
As we continue to reach for better more positive answers for her treatment I had her email the International Bio Care Hospital in Mexico. There have been at least 2 success stories from Alaska that I have read about from treatment at this clinic. Within an hour of Wendy sending the email the call came in from the hospital. The doctor she spoke with assured her that they have treatment options that will help her. As most know health insurance companies in the USA won’t cover medical treatment outside the borders of the US, even if it can cure a patient, the burden for the cost of these treatments is on the patient. As Wendy spoke with the doctor he informed her that treatment would cost $28,000.00. Plus travel expenses.
Our goal is to raise the funds to be able to send Wendy to Mexico to get this treatment in hopes of her being with us all on the face of this earth for as long as possible. Please help us raise the required funds necessary for Wendy to get the treatment needed.
