Belle's journey with the "Big C" started as stage 3 breast cancer. Not a great start to 2016!
But this girl is a trooper! ...and when you have two beautiful young children who still need their mommy very much, and a very amazing supportive husband by your side, you don't think of the long nasty road ahead - you fight this for them! Because you're invincible and that's what mom's do best!
The first round in the "fighting ring" was incredibly tough with a few setbacks but she had her boxing gloves on and bravely pushed through each gruelling treatment over the following 8 months with that beautiful smile (although I know she was crumbling inside).
August 2016 marked the beginning of a new chapter.
Done with treatment. Done with Cancer!
A new page in the book of survival!
A world conquered!
But this chapter sadly only lasted a year. Dearest Belle started having health trouble in August 2017 - only one year after all that gruelling treatment. Test after test dismissed the symptoms as damage caused by radiation, which we now know was this devil sneaking up silently, which brings us to where we are now...
The devastating news that this isn't radiation damage but that it is the cancer that has metastasized to her lungs. She is now sitting with stage 4 with not many options on the table.
So this brings me to the reason for trying to raise some funds. Chemo will only prolong life slightly. I have every reason to believe in the power of OZONE, and have testimony of a brave lady who cleared her lung cancer with aggressive daily treatment in the HOCATT pod.
I would really like Belle to do aggressive HOCATT ozone therapy, as this is her best shot at this round in the fighting ring. These sessions however come at a price and are R300 per session. Needing these 5 days a week (on the aggressive protocol) racks up quite a bill that an average household would struggle to scratch together.
So here I sit with my hands out. No amount is too small. Every gesture is a blessing. I ask if you can dig deep in your hearts and donate any small amount to make a massive change to someones life.
I completely understand that we perhaps don't all have spare money to dish out, but if I could ask you to share this far and wide so that we can reach a few that may be able to.
Thank you from the very bottom of my heart!
