At age 21 (2011) the battle with cancer began.
With my 2 year old son by my side, I was visiting my younger sister in hospice care who was currently fighting brain cancer. I was told that I had stage 3 breast cancer and it was imperative I return home for immediate surgery and treatment.
I followed the orders to complete a series of chemotherapy for several months. During this time I was advised that I had a rare disorder called Li-Fraumeni. This is a rare disorder that greatly increases the risk of developing several types of cancer. With this being said radiation was not an option for me anymore.
May 2013 I was diagnosed with a grade 2 brain tumor and underwent surgery to remove it. Due to being low grade I was advised chemotherapy wasn't necessary.
I completed routine check ups and scans as ordered.
July 2014, I was diagnosed with another brain tumor which had become a grade 3. I had surgery to remove it and completed a series of chemotherapy.
May 31, 2017 the night before my birthday underwent brain surgery for yet another brain tumor removal. After the pathology report came back I was advised it had progressed to a stage 4. The most serious stage in cancer. I completed a series of chemotherapy treatment.
March 2018, I was told I had a 7 cm brain tumor which was also a stage 4 and extremely life threatening. My son, now 9 looked at me after finding out the news and said nothing. His silence opened my heart and eyes to the change I needed to make and the strength I needed to have to fight for our lives.
I received information of a hollistic route which would boost my immune system and help me fight for my life without the effects chemotherapy has. I started to take 4life transfer factor plus along with other immune boosting supplements and drastically changed my lifestyle to include my diet, mindset and exercise.
I realize nothing is guaranteed but I do know that I've spent a little over 6 years fighting and following the orders of the doctors to complete chemotherapy treatment but the side effects have destroyed my health and kept me from being the mother I wanted to be for my son for several periods of his life.
I'm asking for the financial support to continue the fight holistically because the cost to continue is out of my budget and insurance will not cover any costs. I do not wish to complete chemotherapy treatment and I hope it's understandable.
