Help My Sister Beat Breast Cancer

Hi,
My name is John and I’m writing this about my sister and her battle with cancer. My sister Patricia was diagnosed with Triple Negative, invasive ductal carcinoma. In other words, it’s a very aggressive form of breast cancer. She was diagnosed in November, 2014. She had surgery to remove the mass in December, 2014. By February 2015, my sister had travelled to Reno, Nevada for low dose chemotherapy and IPT therapy for three weeks. She then took chemotherapy pills for another 12 weeks after the IV’s. This venture cost my sister and her husband over $47,000.00 which they had to borrow and put on credit cards. They are still paying on this past debt monthly. The treatment didn’t work and in September, 2015 my sister had to undergo a second surgery to remove a mass that kept growing even during the time she was doing chemotherapy treatment.

Now we fast forward to February, 2016. My sister started having pain in her left ribcage in the early morning. She got ready for the day, went shopping and found blood in her urine. A long day and night spent at the Emergency Room at a local Hospital revealed that Patricia had a heart attack. After three days in the hospital, she went to see a new doctor. This time it was a Cardiologist. He asked if she had ever had any type of chemotherapy treatment for the breast cancer. When she said yes, he told my sister that the CHEMO and STRESS were the two most likely reasons for the heart attack.

My sister has done several alternative treatments and the tumor is still growing. In the past, almost four years, Patricia has changed her diet, changed her lifestyle, changed her sleeping habits, changed her stressors and changed her spiritual life. She has always been a Godly, loving sister who is very giving in every way. There are other alternative treatment plans available, but, my sister needs help to afford them. Her insurance company will not pay for alternative treatment plans and my sister is scared to do chemotherapy after having had a heart attack and now lives with a compromised heart.

If you can donate, that would be fantastic and a huge help. If you cannot help financially please pray as prayer is so incredibly powerful.

Thank You, 
John
