Help save Maia's life

Loving, bright and a true light in this world; this is our beloved Maia. One of the kindest and strongest women we have ever known. 

In February 2015 Maia was diagnosed with the agressive triple-negative, stage 4 breast cancer. A cancer difficult to treat with chemo and radiation, and so Maia has been fighting hard for her life ever since.

This is our outreach to everyone and their personal network, in our URGENT attempt to raise funds, to help Maia get immunology treatments especially designed, and with very good treatment records, for her specific cancer.




MAIA'S  STORY    

Triple-negative breast cancer is a particularly deadly type of cancer that metastasizes extensively and widely with sudden rapidity in the body. To make matters worse, chemo and radiation have close to no effect on this type of cancer, and therefore the chances of survival, if staying with conventional treatments, are quite poor.  

Maia was, nevertheless, enrolled in the Danish hospitals’ standard cancer-protocol and went through six full rounds of the most toxic chemotherapy available. These treatments left Maia in a ruined state of health, and on top of that, while fighting hard to recover the dire damages from the chemo, Maia had yet to undergo 3 major operations due to metastatic spread. 17 lymph nodes and half of her left lung have been removed.  

Regrettably, all treatments have failed to halt the cancer, and the latest PET/CT scan April 19th 2018 revealed new metastatic spread to the lymph nodes in her chest and neck. Only this time it can’t be surgically removed.

THE SITUATION IS URGENT 

Diagnosed with a continuously recurring, inoperable, stage 4, triple negative cancer, Maia's chances of beating the cancer through the Danish hospital system, is in reality, close to non-existent. 

Despite this latest devastating development, Maia, the fighter and optimist we all know, has not yet given up on a cure. She has researched for months and consulted with numerous doctors around the world and has found several reputable clinical trials for this specific type of cancer, both in Europe and in the US. Maia’s doctors are now DNA-sequencing her cancer in order to match a trial so that the final treatment form can be matched with best possible outcome.

A stage four, triple-negative cancer is NOT to be taken lightly as it's known for it's unpredictability and sudden explosive growth, and due to daily spread WE NOW NEED TO ACT FAST. Therefore, the urgency of Maia’s enrollment in treatments designed specifically for this viscious cancer, is paramount.

International patients at renowned clinics are required to provide the funds up front. However, treatments will come with quite a cost and the Danish healthcare insurance does not cover treatments abroad.
We are now raising funds for the first 4 of these treatments specialized for Maia. And for this, lowly estimated, including travel costs and accomodation, Maia will need $46.000 (DKR 292.000).

With the help from family and friends, Maia has managed to provide for and supplement herself with immune-strengthening  and natural protocols during her 3,5 year cancer period. However, funds are running low and the price of the immunological treatments are very high.

We are therefore URGENTLY reaching out to everyone and their network for their help by either sharing this gofundme-page or kindly donating. Even the smallest contribution will be received with immense gratitude. Whether big or small, you can help save Maia's life by giving her access to these treatments. 

Our warmest and most heartfelt thank you in advance.

Family & Friends of Maia ❤️❤️❤️
