About 6 months ago I was a normal 22 year old. Working, driving, going to school and excited to have my whole life in front of me. On February 7th 2017, I received news that drastically changed my life. I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Breast Cancer. Suddenly, I was a lot less independent than I was used to being. Because of the chemotherapy, I could not work or drive. There were days I couldn't get out of bed because of the effects of the medicine. On June 22nd 2017 I finished 8 rounds of chemotherapy and I decided to get a double mastectomy to lower my chances of a reoccurance happening. On July 13th 2017, I had my double mastectomy, and I thought I would be cancer free. Little did I know the next visit with my doctor would change my life drastically again. The chemotherapy didn't work and I was faced with the reality that my tumor was resistant and I have to have 4 to 6 more months of chemotherapy. For the next 4 to 6 months I will continue to complete chemo in a pill form and try and fight this disease off. Luckily, I have amazing family support and was able to get to all of my doctor appointments and chemo treatments. But even with their support, finances have been difficult. I have come a long way in my journey with cancer and I’m blessed to say that I am still here on Earth fighting this disease. But my journey is far from over. I am humbly asking you all through the GoFundMe site, to help support me on my journey through whatever means you may have - spiritual, emotional, and if possible financial. I am not shy when it comes to talking about my battle with cancer, and encourage anyone who has questions to feel free to message me and embark on this journey with me. Endless thanks to those who read this and sympathize with my situation and my heart goes out to those who are in similar situations. This has not been an easy experience, but with your help and God’s blessings I will make it through this journey.
My expenses will go toward:
Medical bills, financial support, and transportation.
Anything will be appreciated.
