Hi everyone! I hope that you all are having a good day. I am Lucky, 27.
I come up with gogetfunding.com because one simple reason— the love I have for my mother, Alona.
It all started when she felt a a pea-size lump on her left breast. I convinced her to go for an ultrasound and mammography to find out what’s in that ‘pea’. Because of suspicious findings, she was advised to undergo surgical excision and she did. The biopsy results confirmed that my mom has breast cancer. Yes, cancer. Who wouldn’t be afraid of it? We were all doomed by that news. But we have to make a stand and be brave. I know that God is with us through this journey. As the eldest child, I gave my mom the assurance that everything will be okay and everything will turn out fine. And I promised her that we’ll beat cancer together. She’s so young at 49 and I know that good things are yet to come on her way.
My mom had double mastectomy (removal of both breasts) to avoid the recurrence of cancer. I thought that it would be that easy– that when she have undergone with that operation, nothing else needs to be done anymore. But it never was easy. It’s cancer. It can return anytime especially if not treated properly.
It’s gonna be a long journey. Aside from chemotherapy and hormone therapy, mom needs to undergo targeted therapy. But her oncologist said that the last one, the targeted therapy needs a huge sum of money (57,000 USD) that we should not attempt to start the treatment if we cannot afford to finish it for it will do more harm than good if not completed.
We love our mother— we want her to live longer and live the life that she deserve, a happy and a healthy life. Along with my younger siblings, friends and with guidance from God, we are trying our very best to make our mother feel that she is loved and cared for. But with our goal of raising funds for her cancer treatment, I know that you guys can help us a lot and we will be forever thankful.
