Raising money to fund Yvonne's fight against stage 4 non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC).
Just July of this year, she had recurring cough and did mandatory quarantine for 2 weeks as per company protocol during the pandemic. Right after, she went back to clinic to secure a medical certificate ensuring she's fit to work. She had a chest xray and was found out that she had pneumonia. She did the mandatory quarantine again for 2 weeks and took antibiotics as instructed by her doctor. After 2 weeks, she had another chest xray and it was discovered to be a lung mass. She sought out for a pulmonologist, had further tests and was found to have a lung tumor measuring 7.9 x 6.2cm (refer to CT Scan result).
Last September 3, she had a CT Scan guided (due to the location of the tumor) needle core biopsy and the results confirmed that she has non-small cell lung cancer favor with squamous cell carcinoma. On September 23, she had a PET CT scan and found to be stage 4 with brain, bones and adrenal gland metastasis.
Yvonne is a 28 years old, female, a non-smoker and had no complains prior to July of this year.
Upon checking with her oncologist, Yvonne's cancer cell is positive with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation (L858R and T790M) and her best treatment option is the oral drug OSIMERTINIB (Tagrisso) taken once a day (30 tablets cost 99,300) and a monthly infusion of Zoledronic acid.
Any amount of help will go a long way. Thank you.
