Thanksgiving 2011 I haphazardly became ill. I was hemorrhaging from ovarian cysts, later found to be cancerous. I was soon diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer and received extreme treatment: chemotherapy. That treatment included more medications and surgeries than I could possibly count.
Seperate from the ovarian cancer I was also diagnosed with a brain tumor at age 5. I suffered from an abnormal and aggressive seizure. I then was rushed to the hospital and fell into a coma. The brain tumor was for the most part removed. Since then I have had break through seizures because of the scarring left behind.
I've undergone a gastrectomy, splenectomy, appendectomy, cholecystectomy, hysterectomy as well as several other surgeries/procedures.
I am thankfully in remission but still not well enough to return to school or work. Unfortunately I still suffer from seizures, anxiety, adhesions (built up scar tissue) that cause painful bowel obstructions & immense abdominal pain.
After visiting several doctors I have found out that cancer/chemo also took a serious toal on my teeth. I now have to get a lot of dental work done as well. Medications weakened my teeth and my ill moments eroded them. Leaving me with a regrettably high number of cavities.
Please help support my cause. Every penny and ounce of kindness makes a world's difference. Thank you so much for your support! Xoxo
