So far, all we know is that it has spreads through the lymph nodes of her neck, chest, and abdomen as well as her bones. The oncologists currently believe it to be a stage 4 T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma. Her heart and lungs have persistent fluid accumulation making daily activities, including sleeping, a major challenge. My older sister Maria has been with her since February 16th. Myself and my parents are waiting patiently for her diagnosis and furthermore her prognosis to make a plan for when to go see her.
My parents own a small business in Nanaimo BC and are currently making arrangements at work so that they can take turns visiting Clara. My most recent plan is to go visit her for a short while next weekend and then again over my spring break. Today, Clara checked into the cancer ward with the plan to start intensive chemo for 1 month starting Tuesday as an inpatient (i.e. full time stay).
So this is me reaching out for help in a difficult time. With my parents being business owners and myself a full time student, we are in need of financial support so that we can support Clara fight cancer. Nobody should have to go through chemo without family by their side. Your financial contributions would go towards travel costs and any additional medical support (main treatment costs should be covered by her insurance).
Thank you for taking the time to read this, no amount is insignificant as even your willingness to act is much appreciated.
