For those of you who may know Jenicka and Victor Amador, they have been experiencing one of the toughest journeys imagined. Jenicka was diagnosed with Stage 2, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in December of 2017. She had a tumor in her pelvis the size of a softball, growing into her vaginal cannel, rectum, bladder and compressing her right ureter causing her right kidney to no longer function even after a surgical stent intervention.
The doctors informed her that this was an aggressive cancer and chemotherapy needed to begin as soon as possible. Unfortunately, the type of chemotherapy she was to receive, R-CHOP causes ovarian failure meaning she would not be able to produce any eggs after treatment. After 9 years of dating, Jenicka and Victor were finally married and hoped to start their family in a few months when she finished nursing school. The news of not being able to have kids crushed them more than having cancer.
As expensive as they knew it would be, the ability to one day have 1 child was worth the financial burden they knew they would endure. This Go Fund Me account is to help both Jenicka and Victor pay for their Fertility Preservation and the $15,000 Fertility bill they currently owe. In addition to the amount already owed, each future implantation will cost $4,000.
In January 2018, they were able to get 5 eggs, but 1 didn’t mature and 1 did not fertilize. So they now have 3 embryos waiting for Victor and Jenicka when she is done fighting this cancer. They are proud to say she had 2 girl embryos and one boy embryo and hopes to implant as soon as her doctor gives her the OK!
It is my hope that we can relieve Jenicka and Victor of this financial stress and allow them to focus their energy on Jenicka’s health. Thank you in advance for your help and prayers. It is much appreciated.
