Prayers and Love for Ventura

$2,300 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 36 people in 8 months
Created October 21, 2018
We have created this account for our dear friend Ventura, who was diagnosed with breast cancer on September 20th, 2018. Her last regular 3D scans in December showed normal results, but since then one of five tumors aggressively increased over a centimeter within days and she is now at Stage IV.

She started chemo treatment quickly on October 8th, at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) and they have her on an intense plan, which is why we could use any help, and of course any prayers. They’ve recommended eight treatments every other week over four months and then surgery after a one-month recovery period. After surgery she will endure six weeks of radiation, followed by reconstructive surgery.

Ventura is a single mother of three beautiful kids and has provided a wonderful life for all them. She is strong, sets high goals, and has a lust for living life to the fullest. She graduated from ASU in 2015 with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice while working full-time and has traveled all over the world. She goes hiking when she can and is not afraid of climbing the most challenging mountains. She bakes for with her granddaughter and loves spending time with her family and friends.

Fortunately, Ventura has been with the same employer for over fifteen years and has health insurance and other benefits. She went on a short-term leave October 4; however, beginning December 4th her income will be reduced significantly. While her insurance will cover most of the medical costs, there is absolutely no way of knowing what her personal and financial burden will be in the end

Our goal is to keep that thought furthest from her mind and allow her to use every ounce of strength to fight this horrible disease and all the treatment and procedures to come. We are asking for any donations, even as little as $5 helps, and every prayer will be greatly appreciated.33846984_154014687797484_r.jpeg33846984_154014721270402_r.jpeg33846984_1540147859846531_r.jpeg

Ventura 1/17/19

Things took an unexpected turn yesterday, my chemo is being canceled and surgery is being scheduled soon due to a tumor rapidly growing. But that’s okay because God is my healer no matter what my body is doing and it’s things like this that will only push me to fight harder and become stronger in the end. I trust God and know he has a plan for me. Soon, I’ll be cancer free. ☺️
I thank everyone again for all the prayers, love and support you’ve all shown me these last 4 months. It’s been incredible and such a blessing.

Hey everyone!

Great news for Ventura, already! So far two tumors went from 6cm to 3cm and one went from 6.7cm to 5cm. Even her blood work and the low side affects from the aggressive meds she’s on has her doctors amazed!

Please keep her in prayer that this progression continues rapidly and her faith and strength endure.
