Help pay for cancer treatment

Hello,

My name is Eva , I am 31 years old and my life changed drastically last April when I was diagnosed with cancer (osteosarcoma). It is a rare and aggressive cancer that usually appears during childhood. In addition to that, mine is situated on an unusual bone (the clavicle) so I had to undergo a lot of tests before the diagnosis was confirmed.

Consequently the treatment is long and strenuous:
- 3 months of chemotherapy
- Surgery to remove my entire left clavicle 
- Physiotherapy to learn how to use my left shoulder again
- 3 months (or more) of more chemotherapy 
- appointments and tests for the next 5 years


I am French but I lived in Australia 8 years. Last year I started a pastry business and it was starting to kick off when I was diagnosed, sadly I had to put it aside for now. Due to my visa status I am not entitled to Medicare and all medical scans have up to 50% surcharge. As you can imagine flying back to France wasn't an option because of Covid 19. Therefore I (with my partner) have to pay for almost everything out of pocket.  

In addition to all this I am unable to work, so my partner (Kristian) had to support me. He has payed for almost all my medical stuff such as appointments with specialists, MRIs, PET scans, bone scans, CT scans, XRs, biopsies, blood tests and now surgery. On top of all this he also pays for our home and bills.  Without him I wouldn't be able to get any treatment and I think I would be on the streets.

I realised the urgency of starting this GoFundMe as a last resort to help me deal with this dire situation. 

It is for us a very stressful situation and we are both drained from it. I realised that we have no other option but to ask for help. Family, along with friends have helped immensely but as you might understand, there is still a lot to pay for without being able to work and because of my visa. For example we have to pay $7000 by next Friday for my surgery.

Any donation would be helpful and all of them will go to funding my surgery and the next phase of treatment.

Thank you and merci beacoup.
