My name is Kimberly Sosa and I'm 21 years old. I had a liver transplant when I was only 8 months old, and that's been hard enough to live with, but now, I got diagnosed with Stage 3 Non-Hodgkins lymphoma on May 10th 2016. I have been fighting for more than a year, and the chemo has really damaged my liver to the point where I have cholangitis and I need another transplant. The doctors said I won't be able to get another liver until (at least) a year since my body is too weak right now to fight off any new cancer cells that may come back and attack my new liver. They also said my liver is so frail that it may not even last the whole year, but I will prove them wrong!!! I will beat this battle once again for the third time.
We would use the money to pay for treatments the insurance doesn't cover to help my liver last a year until the transplant surgery. Ordinarily, my family and I would never ask for money, but due to our current situation, we need all the help we can get. My family members are the most caring individuals and the best support system, but dealing with the stress of fighting cancer has not only taken a toll on me, but on my family as well. We're struggling to make ends meet and literally anything will help!! It's okay if you can't donate, but please help spread the word by sharing this. We are always positive and we have no doubt that I can win this battle too. Thank you all so much and God bless and good luck to everyone fighting their own battle. ❤️
