It has been 2 years since we started this go fund me for Mineko, it has been quite a heroic journey for the past two years. She went to the Baha Gerson Clinic in Mexico in February of 2018 for one month of intensive therapy . She returned home and continued her therapy diligently. In April of 2018 her PET scan revealed involvement in the lymph node so in May, she had a mastectomy to remove the large tumor and lymph nodes. Since then, she had continued her therapy and started once again to treat her clients little by little. She was looking good, and feeling vibrant as she started to return to daily life. Bringing joy once again to all her clients who patiently waited for her return, and to her many friends, she is an inspiration.
We are sad to notify all of you that her last scan showed her cancer has returned. We are asking once again for your support as Mineko will need funds for therapies to help provide comfort as she once again battles this disease.
Mineko was born and raised in Japan and came to America 23 years ago. She has been a massage therapist for 17 years. Her loving personality, her amazing therapeutic abilities, and her passion to help and heal others made her career as a massage therapist very busy.
Five years ago, Mineko had a horrible experience with a misdiagnosis of lymphoma. This sparked an interest in her to learn about alternative health care so she could treat herself and help others. She recently graduated from Acupuncture and Massage College and is getting her license very soon.
Unfortunately, Mineko found a tumor in her breast in February of 2017. She was diagnosed with a triple negative very aggressive breast cancer. She has been using alternative therapies to treat herself for the past year, but she and her family feel it necessary to seek more intensive treatments. Her health insurance does not cover these treatments, and due to extensive student loans, she is not able to gather the funds.
Mineko has touched the lives of many people with her incredible spirit, passion, and ability to help anyone in need. She is looking forward to becoming a licensed Acupuncture Physician and continue her work for healing others.
Her friends and family are setting up this fund to help her win this battle. Please consider any donation towards this cause. We Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Blessings and Good Health to All!
