Michele Proietto's Cancer Battle

$24,426 of $35,000 goal

Raised by 233 people in 10 months
Created August 15, 2018
The close friends of Michele Proietto have chosen to reach out and ask friends, co-workers, and any other individuals in the community to help support Michele’s battle against Stage 4 Uterine Cancer at age 49.  In the last 2 weeks, Michele was blindsided with the devastating news of her diagnosis after being admitted to the emergency room after experiencing severe pelvic pain.  After several days in the hospital, two surgeons were able to operate simultaneously and remove multiple tumors from her pelvis and other surrounding areas where the cancer had spread.  Other affected tissues/parts of her body were removed as well.  

The situation is especially emotional for Michele since her mother died earlier in her life of the exact same cancer, while Michele attended her in Hospice.  Getting through the tumor-removal surgery was the easy part of this process.  The next steps will require Michele to undergo 6 months of chemotherapy with doctors monitoring her progress closely. 

During these past 2 weeks, Michele has only been able to focus on survival. The road ahead requires much more extensive medical care with numerous doctors and continuous monitoring.  

We all know someone who has been affected by this horrendous disease and how it takes an emotional toll on the patient. We all hope and pray for her full recovery. Michele’s friends and family can provide emotional support and get her to doctor appointments, but we desperately need financial help.  Michele needs all her energy focused on healing rather than worrying.  Being that she lives alone and is the sole income provider, the mounting medical bills and basic living expenses are overwhelming in the face of everything else.  Helping Michele now is a minor way in which we all can assist in alleviating the burden that this devastating medical diagnosis bears on her shoulders.

Please support Michele’s recovery with a gift – whatever you can spare, no gift is too small.  Many small things can amount to something big, and make a world of difference for Michele.   The money raised from this GoFundMe will be used to help pay for Michele’s further treatment and ongoing expenses until she can get back to living and working again as a flight attendant. With your love and support, there is always hope.

I wish I would be taking this opportunity and inviting everyone to my big birthday coming up 50. Instead we will need to put off any celebration for the time being. My last surgery resulted in needing a bag put in place while they continue to try to eliminate the tumors in my stomach area. We won’t know if this treatment will be successful for a few months. Meanwhile I am spending most of my time recuperating around the house. I can’t thank all of you enough for your support as you have helped me get thru this financially as I have not been able to work for almost one year. I love you all and hope that one day we can celebrate.

This is Tammy writing on behalf of Michele. Michele is scheduled for surgery on Tues May 21 at Holy Cross Hospital to remove an intestinal blockage. Please send Michele your prayers and positive wishes her way. The surgery is scheduled for 1pm and she'll some need time to recover afterwards. The best time for visitors will be the following day+ (Wednesday+), so she has time to rest.

This is Tammy writing on behalf of Michele. Many people are aware Michele recently been taken to the Emergency Room for extreme pain, and had to be later admitted (at Holy Cross Hospital) because of some additional symptoms. We're waiting to hear more from Michele (and her doctors) but she's more comfortable in the hospital for now and resting. Thank you as always for your continuing support - it really is making a world of difference.
