I am Elisa Gorman a 39 Year Old " Go Getter" full of fire and figuring it all out as I go a long.
2 years ago I started my jounrey with a Breast Cancer Diagnosis that seemed managable. I embarked on a beautiful experience of holistic healing and emotional healing which allowed me to have great physicical success. I was able to keep my health thriving and my mental state strong as I educated myself on different modalities. Please read the orginal story below to learn more :
Well, fast forward to now and what has happened the last two months.
My health took a turn and the diagnois took on a life of its own. My mom lost her battle just one year ago on Oct. 1st, and my heart has been devasated by the grief, which I know plays a part of the "dis - ease" manifesting!
If you follow my story on social media you know that the last few months have been physically hindering.
A few months ago I started experiencing pain in my back and shortness of breath. Ignoring it like most of us do, I kept working my little heart out, adding more to my plate and running my Public Relations company and managing my clients.
Days and Nights would get worse and I would cry all night in discomfort. Until someone who loves me and sees me all the time finally said, " You need to see your doctor."
So we did, tests which led to two lung surgeries, draining gallons fluid, I stayed in the hospital for a week, when they sent me home, they sent me home with a tube in my body to contunue draining, and minimal nurse care. My friends and myself had to change dressings and monitor me for infection with minimal support. Finally we removed the tube only to discover that the procedure had complications.
We learned that Cancer Nodules have spread through out my lungs and lymphatic system, making draining, cleansing and detoxing the body difficult. Most importantly making it difficult for me to do much of anything. Breathing, Walking, Working, Laundry, Cooking, Driving.... I currently am unble to do any of this on my own, and if you know me that that alone is a death sentence.
So here I am starting over as I continue to consult with doctors and open my mind to/ recieve forms of conventional treatment in addition to my holistic contributions.... I feel lost.
Conventional Medicinces Include: ( Immuno Therapy & Low Dose Chemo)
Asking for help is never easy and this experience is beyond humbling, as everyday is different.
It's been weeks since I have felt like myself and I am hoping that with your support and love if I can get some financial relief I can commit and focus on my health completely and make a full recovery.
So Much Love Elisa
Written 2 years ago:
After being diagnosed with Triple Negative Stage 2 Breast Cancer and positive for the Brac 1 gene, 7 months ago, I have found my way to healing my body, I believe with my actions and my wellness choices I will heal my cancer and turn off my genetic make up.
For 7 months I have taken care of my own medical bills, my own wellness treatments and all of my living expenses. I have come to a place that it is truly time for me to ask for help. This is a major life lesson for me because I have always been self sufficient. It isn't easy for me to ask for help. I am unable to financially keep up with the constant DR. appointments, blood tests, scans and modalities that I am using to treat my diagnosis.
When making the difficult desicion to start a GO FUND ME... I thought of all of the ways I can care for myself, those ways unfortunely include me working harder, taking on more clients and resting less. I realize that I can't do this. I have had to cut back on work a lot because I am tending to my life and trying to stay healthy and alive while healing.
Then I thought if every single person I know on my social media platforms and from my email contacts donated a minimum of $20 each this would help to raise $50,000. Just $20 dollars all of a sudden didn't seem like a big ask to help me SAVE MY LIFE!
I also started to warm up to the idea when I realized that with every dollar raised and every single treatment I am receiving.... YOU will be invested in my journey and you will be showing me LOVE with the gift of giving. So everytime that, I receive vitamin C, therapy, reiki, acupuncture, cryotherapy, infrared sauna, mistletoe injections, vitamin B12 shots, suppliements and tests it will be your gift that is allowing me the means to truly heal and accept love!
Your donations will provide me the freedom to focus all of my energy on my health and stress less about my finances. Regardless of my methods and ways of healing my medical bills are piling up and I am currently receiving collection notices from my "Conventional Medicial" tests and appointments. My orginal scans were covered partially by my insurance and the remaining cost that I am responsible for is currently $15,000. I never thought cancer would be my story and I never thought I would have to ask for support like this. I am thankful that I do have friends and family who have encouraged me to start this GO FUND ME ASAP! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your donations in advance, as I need your help NOW!
