Unfortunately Our mom Elsa was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in
2015. Multiple Myeloma is a cancer that forms in a certain type of white
blood cell called the “plasma cell” which is located and produced
within the bone marrow. Plasma cells are ESSENTIAL in fighting
infections as well as the production of antibodies when these cells
are not at their full potential, it creates abnormal proteins that can
cause complications such as, frequent infections, reduced kidney
function, anemia and bone pain as well as decreased bone mass.
After our mom was diagnosed in 2015, we were able to begin Chemo and
later underwent a stem cell transplant in 2017. Thankfully, the
transplant was successful which led our mom to go into remission for a
year. However, after a routine checkup, it was clear cancer had begun
to advance once again. The second round of treatment began this past
Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018.
Due to the unfortunate and debilitating complications of this type of cancer,
our mom has only been able to resume some of her daily tasks but because she is
continuing treatments and still suffers from pain and fatigue she has
not been able to return to work. This has caused a major financial strain to
our family. We are currently several months behind on rent and having enough money
for food and gas is an every day challenge. We know that many people are also going
through financial hardships so if you are unable to donate we will gladly accept
prayers and words of encouragement. However, if you are in a position to donate
even $1.00 would mean the world to us.
We will keep this page active while we continue to support our mom in her battle
with this cancer. And from time to time we will continue to ask for help so if you are unable
to help now please send us your prayers and maybe you can help us down the road.
This Cancer has hit our family like a ton of bricks. It has
created an emotional and financial burden on our family but it has
made us more thankful for every minute we spend together. This type of
cancer does not have a cure and we hope to keep fighting until she
goes into remission again.
On behalf of our family, we want to Thank you for taking your time to
read our story please keep our Mom and family in your Prayers and your
Donations are graciously appreciated.
Thank you from Jesus, Elsa, Valery, Jazmin Muro, and Maria Lovos
