I have Breast Cancer. Please help me get well.

Dear friends, (ignore it says on behalf of Toktam Khavas, that's just because she has had to withdraw the money on my behalf as I am in the US and don't have an SSN number)

I have just been diagnosed with Stage 1, Grade 2 Invasive Breast Cancer.

I'm reaching out to ask for some financial help with getting better and ensuring the cancer doesn't return. 

The surgery and radiotherapy is covered by insurance, as well as chemo should I need it. But the more holistic treatments aren't. They are important as they will aid me to detox my body. 

I've already started detoxing, my whole diet has changed, I'm drinking A LOT of water, I have cut out ALL toxins - this is a total life change for me and will be a permanent thing for the rest of my life. I miss my daily coffee dreadfully! Only had 3 in the last month! Felt like Christmas!

I do have some money to pay towards some of it, but as you can imagine it adds up. Plus I also work for myself so there's no one to pay me sick pay. I got to get a better boss LOL :)


How your money will help:

* Lymphatic Massage $100USD each - I'd like to have 1 per week at least until the treatment has finished (10 weeks)

* Infrared Sauna $50USD each - I'd like to have 1 per week until at least the treatment has finished (10 weeks)

* Naturopath $700+ appointments and vitamins/herbs/supplements - In the hope I can avoid taking hormone therapy for 5 years

* Cannabis Oil $1500 - 3 months supply, after that I can hopefully go on a maintenance dose which is much more affordable


Also, please keep in mind that I run a comic business, it's called Make Me A Comic. So if you prefer to purchase something, perhaps a personalized comic or cartoon portrait, that will also really help me manage to afford to get healthy. See my Etsy store. 

Thanks so much for your time, I've never been a fan of asking for help....but I guess if ever there was a time it's right now.

The goal is $3000 but even if I reach $1000 I will be really happy and if I reach more than that, then that will really help me for the long term. 

I'd also like to donate 10% of what I raise to the Valley Care Breast Centre who have been so quick in diagnosing me. They have been nothing short of incredible.
