Dominique's Fight with Cancer

Hello everyone,

My name is Lorena and I am a registered nurse in the New Orleans area. I have decided to put together this gofundme page in hopes of helping my dear friend and coworker Dominique fight a good fight against her second bout with cancer.  In  March 2016, at age 30 Dominique was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer with lymph node involvement in her left breast. She underwent chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation. In February 2018 Dominique decided to have a prophylactic right mastectomy in hopes of preventing recurrence. Unfortunately, in September of 2018, Dominique was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer to her pelvic bones, sternum, liver, and thoracic spine after she had begun to have pain in her hips. In October of 2018, she received 10 rounds of radiation to relieve the pain. Dominique sought a second opinion at MD Anderson where she will begin treatment on November 26, 2018, as part of a clinical trial. For her treatment, Dominique must travel from New Orleans to Houston every Monday and stay 4 days every first and third Monday. She had been given a prognosis of 30 months. Though the prognosis is not what we hoped for, Dominique is not giving up, and neither is her community. Dominique is the most compassionate nurse and courageous mother to her six-year-old son. She deserves a second chance, please help us give her this chance.

May God bless you all.
