Dixie Theriault Cancer Fund

$1,560 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 15 people in 16 days
Hi. My name is Dixie Theriault. I've been battling ovarian cancer since 2012. I'm now beginning chemotherapy for the 3rd time in my quest for a third and hopefully long remission.  Since I began my journey I've had many Life changes. Along the way I lost my very supportive husband, my home, and eventually I moved back to the place I was born to start over. Thanks to the drug Lynparza I was blessed with almost three years of remission but my last CT scan has shown progression of the cancer and I just began chemotherapy again last week. I have a very caring family. My children and my siblings, but financially I am struggling to make my co-payments for treatments and doctor visits. Also keeping gas in the car for the traveling it requires also. I'm having 6 rounds of treatments if I can tolerate them. My goal is to once again reach remission and hopefully it will be a good long one. God bless you if you can donate. I am grateful for prayers and kind thoughts. I will keep you all updated on my progress here and at my blog tealwarrior.com

Good afternoon everyone. As of yesterday I have a new game plan regarding my chemo schedule. Due to the severity of the thrush and mouth sores, plus fevers and laryngitis, my oncologist and RNP have decided that I will do 3 weeks of chemo and then have each 4th week off. This should help me immensely with the intensity of the side effects plus my blood counts can have time to rebound as well. Today I'm taking an antibiotic the doc prescribed plus using clotrimazole lozenges to help heal up the mouth sores.And I do believe there is improvement! Have a great week everyone.
God bless all of you my dear friends and family.

love
Dixie

I couldn't have done this without you and I am humbled and my heart is filled with gratitude for all of the kindness shown me. God bless you all.
Love and peace

Good morning everyone. I'm awake so I thought I'd update. Yesterday with my 3rd treatment, I completed my 1st round of chemo. So 5 more rounds (15 treatments) to go.
Right now I'm dealing with a severe case of thrush which is very painful but thanks to some magic mouthwash it is improving. This is a common side effect caused by the chemo wiping out the normal flora in the mouth and leaving room for a yeast infection to flourish. Just part of my new normal.
I am very blessed. The response I've received from everyone is what lifts my spirits and keeps me going. I feel the love and positive vibes surround me and it keeps me focused on reaching the end of treatment and getting remission. So thank you from the bottom of my heart everyone.
God bless and keep you all!
Love and peace,
Dixie

Good evening everyone. I hope you all are enjoying the weekend and the sunshine.❤ I've been listening to my body and doing what it tells me which involves lots of rest. My circadian rhythm is definitely off so I find myself awake at odd hours but I take advantage and set small goals for myself during my "up" times. So I might be doing dishes at 2am or sound asleep at noon. I'm just going with the flow. I've managed a new blog post at tealwarrior.com today. Sometimes it just helps to purge my thoughts in one place. It helps me focus on the big picture and that it getting remission once again. I want to thank all of you for the enormous amount of love and support you have shown me. Through your generosity and kindness you've helped me in more ways than you could possibly know. The burden that has been lifted is priceless, and you've done that for me! I will get well! My heart is full of love for this beautiful world and the people I share it with. 3rd treatment is coming up Tuesday and I'll update again soon. Goodnight my friends and family and may God bless and keep you.
Love,
Dixie
