Rosanna’s stage 4 alternative medicine

Hi my name is Rosanna and I'm a Dominican single mother of two living in New York City.

In 2004, I was diagnosed with Stage II breast cancer, I underwent chemo therapy, surgery, and radiation which left me cancer free however it destroyed my body leaving me emotionally and physically weak.

Luckily however I persevered through the trying years, went to college and got my degree in applied science and in 2011, I became an occupational therapist assistant (OTA) to support my kids and better by life.

Unfortunately In 2015, the cancer came back aggressively and upon admission to the hospital, I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer that had metastasized to my right hip.

I had surgery in which metal nails were inserted to stabilize my leg, had radiation again and extensive physical therapy to be able to walk again. By 2016, the cancer had spread to the liver and by then my family and I all lost hope. I started chemo mid 2016 and we then realized that chemo was just making it worse, making eating difficult, never sleeping, and the tumors were only growing amongst other complications.

It was at this desperate time in my life where I felt it was time to take matters into my own hands so I started doing my own research at home. I found a clinic in Mexico that offers alternative canter treatment that focuses on nutrition and round the clock care and the success rates and patient reviews seemed genuine and gave me hope again in such a challenging time in my life. They have various treatments, one being Insulin Potentiation Therapy) IPT which uses significantly way less chemotherapy (about 80% less) than the traditional chemotherapy to destroy cancerous cells.

I truly believe this alternative form of treatment in Mexico will heal me and after reading and talking to several patients when I visited their facility, I gained a new sense of hope and optimism that I had long given up on.

I went to Mexico with help from family and friends, and it lowered my tumor markers. It gave me a new hope in life and kept me going for a few more years.

But, things now has taken a turn for the worst. There is a blood clot in my liver and fluid building up in my stomach. It’s hard for me to eat, drink or breathe.

I am a fighter and will not give up hope until my last breath. I want to try to go back to Mexico in hopes to recover. I am reaching out to you in hopes that your generosity and humbleness along with science and my faith can all make a miracle. Because this is an alternative treatment in Mexico, my insurance in the states will not cover the cost. It will cost $30,000 for my medications, treatments, and my stay in their facility where I can be treated under their care in Mexico.

Although I’ve found myself at such a low and desperate time in my life, ironically I do have hope. I believe in the power of people coming together for a good cause. Anything you can donate will help and be greatly appreciated. Please support me and give alternative medicine a chance.
