Please Help Rochell Hoog

 

Rochelle Hoog, 25 years old, is one of the strongest people I have ever met. She has worked for me (Eric Troup) at Margaritaville Beach Hotel since April of 2014. She was First diagnosed with cancer in January 2016 with Stage 4 chronic lymphocytic leukemia and underwent 4 rounds of chemo here in Pensacola. This is rare for someone her age. She beat it and was in remission and was cancer free in August  2016.  The cancer has now transformed into what they call Ritchers syndrome. It happens in 2-10% of CLL patients. She has been forced to move to Houston Texas to receive life saving treatment at MD Anderson Hospital which is a highly rated medical facility known for their work with cancer patients. Rochelle will be staying in Houston until all procedures are done. They are going to perform three rounds of harsh chemo with a combo of new non approved FDA drugs and then proceed to perform a stem cell transplant surgery. Treatments that are not approved by the FDA are not able to be covered by insurance and will cost upwards of $20,000 a month. Treatment is expected to take a minimum of 4 months. This is absolutely necessary for her survival and still doesn’t insure that her life will be saved. She will then need stem cell transplant surgery. Her recovery will be an ongoing process for many months after that. We can’t thank you enough in advance for helping Rochell Hoog and her family. Thank You!!!

Latest update on Rochelle Hoog 10/19/17

Rochelle acquired alot of fluids due to liver and kidney failure and in return "erupted" her lungs. At that point she started bleeding through her mouth and nose they then put her under and put in breathing support. She was given 2 hours to pull through at this time and that was on August 28th. She finally woke up around early october. Since then Rochelle has started to speak and eat small amounts of food. They removed the breathing tube and installed a trachea. She has small amounts of movement in head, thumbs, and works with PT now. Her Kidneys are improving and liver is stable but she has acquired Graph VS Host Disease in her bowls. It is a stage 4 and very serious almost as the cancer she had. The doctors started a new medicine with her last monday october 9th and are monitoring stool samples to look for blood. Currently she still has blood in the stool as of 10/18/17 but the doctors say it can take weeks. This medicine has to react with her in order for her to move forward in the recovery process. Rochelle has made it so far and is cancer free at this time. She has a very long road of recovery ahead past getting rid of the GVHD witch means alot more living expense for the family. Thanks in advance for everyones help, thoughts, and prayers.

Latest update for Rochelle in her fight against cancer. During her pet scan and other various testing it was found that the first two rounds of chemo was only a 50% success. With that being said they were not able to go through with the stem cell and admitted her back into MD Anderson for two more harsher rounds of chemo. The doctors still have high hopes for success but the cost of living in Houston and hospital bills are being prolonged longer than expected. A huge thanks to all who has helped and all future donators.
