My name is Jessica Warf. I am soon to be 32 years old and was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer June 21, 2017.
I have always tried to live my life with a "YOLO" (you only live once) attitude and have been overall pretty healthy. I have never smoked or anything else that makes you more "susceptible" to getting cancer. I make my living as a teacher and sharing my passion for cosmetology and barbering to aspiring professionals. I believe that through sharing knowledge we can make the world a better place. I never thought CANCER would interupt any of that.
Yet, the reality is I have cancer (that's weird to say). I am currently not working due to having back pains, stomach pains, chronic fatigue, etc which lead doctors to finding the Cervical Cancer.
As of right now I am not 100% sure what stage or if it has traveled elsewhere. I was told i am going to need surgery (around my birthday, boo!), and possible radiation/chemo. I am also waiting on getting a full body scan to determine the final stage and finalizing surgery.
I would really appreciate any help I can get to help pay for the doctors appointments, scans, surgery, treatments, after care, etc while I am not working. I am trying to stay positive through this and am needing as much positive vibes coming my way from you all. I do not know how much this whole process may cost and will update that as it comes to me.
Thank you for reading my story and hope that you are willing to help in anyway.
