I have have been diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin's lymphoma since I have been dealing with this kind of illness I am realizing how it is going to have an impact on not only my health but also my life in many ways I can not begin to describe.
I have always been the type of person to work hard and earn the things I've wanted to, volunteering was also a big thing for me especially in this past year! I saved and donated my hard earned money and time helping those in need in small remote villages in India, it was a great experience helping all the children and giving what I could but now I am the one asking for help and I never thought I would be sitting here thinking about writing this sadly.
I started two new jobs the beginning of this month and I am realizing how this has been quite challenging with the side affects of my cancer. I do not have the same energy anymore and it has been this way for a few months now but more worse now as the cancer began spreading. I am feeling extremely fatigued and it is hard to do normal tasks like laundry without being taken of my energy. I know I am just starting treatments and my energy might become worse, so in dealing with trying to work with the conditions I have already I've decided to take off time to let my body rest and heal as I will need all the strength I can to battle for my life and fight off this illness. I am sad to put a stop to my work life because I truly do love keeping busy and I will miss it for now but I really pushed myself too far this past time on shift and I am taking it as a sign to take the time off for now and for my own well being.
The money I am raising will be used for helping me take this time off to not worry or stress about making my personal ends meet and also for any medical bill's that won't be covered under my plan. Any extra funds will be given to a Cancer foundation for giving back to those who need help too.
Any donations will be gladly accepted with love and truly appreciated to help me throughout my cancer battle.
