Melanie's Breast Cancer Fund

I just had my 21st surgery which was also my 3rd surgery in the last 15 days!  I am a thyroid cancer survivor (though labs show it has returned) and my thymus lit up on my PET scan, but we are dealing directly with my Stage 3 Breast Cancer which the doctor as called agressive! 
I have had a double mastectomy and am facing chemo, radiation and reconstructive surgery coming up.  The doctor said all of the surgeries and treatments will take about a year! Now I have heart failure since the chemo last Fall but there is a local recurrence (before I could even have radiation) and is a different kind. I now have HER2 Positive breast cancer as well. My heart is too weak to go on IV chemo so I will be on 2 chemo pills at a smaller strength and keep an eye on my heart. So basically they are extending my life some, but there is no hope or long rate survival plan.

Since getting a divorce last Aug, I had gotten a job, but missed too much work as I was in the ER many times. I had to quit that job as my body can't handle work!  I found out a week later that I had breast cancer. Now I owe medical bills from last year and the beginning of this year and I am using a TON of gas driving from my home in Douglasville to Fayetteville for my doctor appointmens and surgeries.

If you chose to donate, the money will be used for my medical expenses and gas.  I am grateful for any amount as I have NO money coming in.  I have applied and been denied for disability and am about to appeal that decision now that we know more about my breast cancer. If I get disability all of the money would be used paying the medical bills and I still wouldn't have enough.

I've learned that milkweed balm helps with the pain and AON Mother Nature products help a lot with nausea, pain, sleep and everything...just expensive as they are "natural" insurance won't pay. The vape oils (all natural no nicotine) help me the most. The gummies are a close second.

If you want to donate to me or ship anything directly to me, just ask and I will give u my address! Thank you!!! We even have more than this going on that I hope to be able to share soon!!! Please pray!!!!

Thank you for reading and for your prayers!
