Help Single Mom to Fight Cancer
On 10/5/2015, I received a phone call from my sister complaining about an unbearable abdominal pain and pleaded me to bring her to the emergency room. After spending a whole day at the ER, she was taken to receive all kind of tests and scans. The initial diagnose by the doctor was a uterine fibroid and a tumor around the uterus. She was then scheduled for operation on 11/2/2015. During the operation, the doctor found out the cancer was very high grade aggressive and decided to remove the whole uterus and ovaries to stop it from spreading to other parts of the body. She is now recovering and will require Chemotherapy treatment.
My sister is a single mother and works hard to support the family. Due to her health situation, she is forced to close down her small business. She lost her only source of income. Any money we raised here will be used to support her medical cost and living expense during this difficult time, so Hesty can stay focused to fight on. A little bit goes a long way.
First round of Chemotherapy is scheduled for 12/3/2015.
Let's pray hard for Hesty and ask God to help her to beat this nasty cancer. She's a warrior and I know she'll win this battle!

Unfortunately, the day before the new treatment started, she felt in her bathroom and hit her head, causing internal bleeding. Hesty's condition has declined since then. She can't move her left side due to the hemorrhage in brain. She has to lay down all the time and makes her coughing worse and has difficulty in breathing. Doctor told us she only has weeks left. We are scared, we cry a lot, we don't understand. I told my sister there is a mission for everyone on earth. When the mission accomplished, God invites us to his home up in heaven. It's like a subway station, we all will meet there. I promise my sister I will take care of Ashley as my own. This little girl, without a father and now going to loss her mother. She still hasn't cried...
These few days, Hesty has clamed down and accepted. She wants to set up a good example for Ashley that she is still strong and brave. We are preparing to transfer her to hospice as soon as possible. We heard that there is better care for dying patients there and families can stay over night which we can spend good quality time there.
"We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, we boast in the hope of the glory of God. We also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance, character and hope." I use this verse to encourage myself. In all these, my sister is still very appreciative to everyone, she keeps saying thank you ands sorry, she makes jokes, she wants to know how the football team is doing, what Ashley learns at school... I see love from friends and strangers, I see tears from friends and strangers, I see God in everyone of them.
Hi Everyone! Hope all of you are doing well, stay healthy and warm.
I had just finished my 5th cycle of chemo treatment last Thursday (10/31/17) and some scans. Scan result shown there was no new being found in my body and the cancer nodules in my left lung had not grown any bigger or smaller.
According to the originally plan, my treatment should be completed by the end of this month. However my chemo doctor is going to add 4 more treatment cycles for me. She wants to be on the safe side and hopefully the extra 4 treatments will help to control the cancers.
After hearing this news, I was a bit depressed because I was looking forward and counting down my treatment. I am really exhausted, both physically and mentally.
Anyhow, this is a thanksgiving season and I would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to all of you for all your continuous prayers and good thoughts and support for me and my daughter. Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
My sister was out of the hospital at the end of July and her chemo started right away. She is still very weak after the lung bubble/expand surgery, can't even stand without support. She keeps coughing and have a lot of phlegm. I want her to rest more before chemo, but doctors thought otherwise.
Ashley will stay with me until school starts. She has lots of questions about her mum, family, sickness, God. Friends have been super helpful providing rides, cooking meals, and buying groceries. We can't express our gratitude enough. Thanks for reading and I still believe all these happen for a reason, a good grand reason.
Hi Hesty, Glad to hear your great progress. It must be a tough battle. And with the support around you, glad to know you are doing well. I am sure we all learn something (appreciation to life, appreciation to people close to us and support us) through the ups and downs of life :) May you and your family stay strong, and stay healthy.
