Hi i am Christelle. In Oct 2018 i got paralyzed at home. I went to the hospital in ambulance. Were the doctors did a MRI. On the 21 Oct'18 they informed me they have to do a emergency back operation. They had to put screws in and do a decompression on my back. Were the dr saw a mass growing on my spine. A sample were sent away. It come back as Breast Cancer that has spread to my back. On the 25 Ock'18 i was diagnosed with stage 4 Breast Cancer. I started with 10 days radiation and then with a very strong Chemo called The Red Devil for a few months. They had to stop the Chemo because i got infections in my back as well as in the bed sores i had on my sacrum and upper and lower legs and both my feet. (till today i battle to get 3 wounds closed). After a lot of times in and out of hospital my back wound was healed. In Oct'19 i got septicemia in both my legs. I was hospitalized were they had to remove the muscle in my left upper leg and the ligament in my right lower leg. In Nov'19 my body rejected the screws in my back. So in January'20 they had to remove the screws. Unfortunately because of all the set backs with my back I battle to sit in my wheelchair as well as on the bed. We don't have a vehicle so we have to walk with my 3 kids were we want to go. In Aug'20 the Cancer started to grow in my back again. So know i started chemo a again. But its very hard to find someone to help me to go for my treatment
Because we stay in Limpopo SA and I get my chemo in JHB SA. Its a 5 hour drive. I can't do the trip in one day because I can't sit for so long i'm in a lot of pain because of my back. Not only that but i have a lot of medical expenses that needs to be paid. That is why we want to do this. We need a lot of things to help me be comfortable. I'm bound to bed 99% of the day. Please that is why I need all of your help.
