I’ve always had an active and full life. I’ve worked for years in the restaurant business, owning a casual family dining restaurant where we made all of our food from scratch. I raised two sons and now have four grandchildren. We are a very close family.
So in October 2016, when I found a lump in my breast and was diagnosed with breast cancer, I knew I had to fight it. I wouldn’t give in to cancer. I underwent surgery (lumpectomy), chemotherapy and radiation. A year later, my doctors told me there was no evidence of disease. As you can imagine, I was extremely happy with that news.
I continued seeing my doctor for regular follow-up appointments to monitor my health and make sure the cancer didn’t return, or if it did, that it could be caught early. Shortly after my 50th birthday, almost 2 years from my first diagnosis, I found another lump. A biopsy confirmed it was cancer. The tumor was the size of a softball in my left breast and was fast growing. My cancer was diagnosed as “infiltrating ductal carcinoma,” one of the most common types of breast cancers that quickly spreads to surrounding breast tissues.
Once again, my cancer was treated with both chemotherapy and radiation therapy. After this i gave up on everything and was just there waiting for life to give me good news but it couldn't work out and doctors told me that this thing is still there and needs some serious treatments which is gong to cost alot. i gave up on it with no money left in my bank accounts to get treated. as now some people has offered me some things and a generous brother from malaysia has offered to run a campaign for my treatment and for my family. i dont have words to explain the situation in but indeed it's god's will and i have all faith in him.
please do donate whatever you can. i'd appreciate every single penny donated by everyone
