Lifesaving treatment for Raquel

$36,947 of $55,000 goal

Raised by 302 people in 33 months
I am setting up this page to help my incredible sister Raquel in her fight against stage III ovarian cancer. She is my best friend, a wonderful sister, loving daughter, and supportive wife and deserves to get the best treatment available so that she can beat cancer! Raquel is the most generous person that I know and the first to offer her help to anyone in need. She lights up a room and is a joy to be around.

She first was diagnosed with a rare type of ovarian cancer at the age of 23.  She went through two surgeries and the cancer was removed. The cancer has come back at the age of 32. She has already had two surgeries in 2014. Raquel has a rare form of cancer, so rare in fact that there are currently no treatments options in the United States besides surgery, which she has had. Chemotherapy and radiation do not work on this rare type of cancer. She has searched worldwide and found a hopsital that can and will give her lifesaving treatment. Raquel will need to be in at the clinic for 4 weeks and her insurance will NOT pay for this treatment. Total cost of this treatment is $46,000 the travel and home after care program is an additional $10,000,  total needed is $56,000. The full amount has to be paid before she can receive this treatment. The treatment includes ozone blood therapy, hyperthermia, UV blood irradiation, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, dendritic cell therapy, far infrared, laser therapy, high dose vitamin C, IV mineral therapies, biomagnetic therapy, IV laetrile, and most importantly the autologous bone marrow stem cell transplant. These treatments are not offered in the US.

The hospital in Mexico has a reserved a spot for Raquel, all that is left is raising the money to cover the treatment. Once she has the money, she can immediately start receiving this life saving treatment.

Raquel is so extremely positive and knows that she will beat this with the treatment coupled with the loving support of her family, friends, husband, and God.

I am asking for your help on my sister's behalf. Please if you are able to make a donation we would greatly appreciate it. Just think…if 600 people donated $100 or 1,200 people donated $50 we could send Raquel to treatment immediately. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about my wonderful sister Raquel and support her in her fight against cancer.

Please share this to all!!!

Hello Rally 4 Raquel supporters,

Raquel has had an increase in her inflammation numbers and needs to receive treatment to combat the inflammation. This treatment is in the form of an injection of mistletoe extracts. This is needed as soon as possible so that her inflammation numbers can decrease so that she can continue to fight her cancer successfully.

We need to raise $1,000 right now so that she can get the mistletoe injection recommended by her doctors that she needs.

Thank you for your continued support.

Please share and donate if you are able.

Thank you for all of your continued support, love, and prayers.

Raquel had imaging done last week and the metastatic thyroid cancer is still gone, gone, gone!!!! The ovarian disease (that is rare, and chemo and radiation resistant) is stabilized at the moment. Raquel continues to do weekly IV treatments as well as several other injectable treatments (that she gets shipped in from Germany). She continues to have a positive attitude and knows she will reach her full wellness potential! The body is meant to heal, and it takes time and tender care!

Raquel has been hard at work on dealing with the emotional aspects of disease. She is grateful for each day that she can wake up and feel her beating heart…she is alive and living!

Please continue to keep Raquel in your thoughts and prayers. She has an amazing husband and team of worldwide doctors that are monitoring her bloodwork every 30 days as well as guiding her in the appropriate direction. If were where to list all that she does, it would make your head spin! Here are a few of the healing modalities that she uses daily: IV vitamin therapies, subcutaneous injections, coffee enemas, infrared saunas, nutritional metabolic therapies, supplements, prayer, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, meditation, reiki, energy healing and she is starting yoga and Chi Gong next week! She is determined as ever to become disease free!

Again, thank you so much for the financial support. Words can’t express what it means to Raquel and her family. It is so extremely expensive keeping her treatments ongoing. She wouldn’t have been able to receive her treatment last year without your generous donation.

She is trying to live by the 5 by 5 rule – If it’s not going to matter in 5 years, don’t spend more than 5 minutes upset by it. Some days are emotionally hard on her, but those days are few and far between. She is one of the strongest people out there and loves her life to the fullest.

Thank you all for your loving support, prayers, and financial contributions. Raquel was able to seek medical treatment outside of the United States in April-May of this year because of your donations.

At that time she had metastasized thyroid and ovarian cancer.

Since returning, she has had two sets of imaging done and her thyroid cancer is completely gone!!! Yaaaaa One down, one more to go! Her blood work is also improving and she is seeking guidance from the top doctors in the US.

The ovarian disease has shrunk, but in imaging shows it is still in one area of her body. She also has high inflammation (caused by the dead cancer cell die off), and is working hard at getting rid of the inflammation. She is continuing to have IV therapies in Beaverton 5x a week. She also does weekly acupuncture, lymphatic message therapy, energy healing, breathing healing, and reiki! Just to name a few!

On top of that she is busy living and enjoying her life! She has no doubt in her mind that she will reach optimum health and will be disease free. Many times people ask her what would be her advice to newly diagnosed cancer patients, and she always says: "You have time, research your options, but most important get your mind focused and positive. Know that you will get better, and you will. Thoughts are so very powerful to healing. If you believe it you achieve it."

She has imaging scheduled in late December in Arizona.

Please continue to share her story, her Facebook page at Rally 4 Raquel as well as her gofundme page http://gofundme.com/raquelgonzalez

Again, words cannot express how thankful we are for YOU, Raquel's supporters. YOU ROCK!
