I was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer with Bone mets (updated from Stage III a) last 2019.
Back in July 2018, I felt a lump in my breast. I had myself checked and underwent a breast ultrasound with the impression of a Solid Right Breast Mass - BI- RADS 3 on 07/18/2018. Two days after I had a Mammogram with a Bi-Rad 0 impression. Both of these didn't confirm whether or not I really have a breast cancer.
It took me several months before I underwent a mastectomy. On May 14, 2019, a mastectomy removed the whole of my right breast. Diagnosis was INVASIVE DUCTAL CARCIOMA STAGE III - Breast Cancer.
Biopsy showed that I have more than 10 lymph nodes positive for tumor.
ESTROGEN RECEPTOR ASSAY (ERA) - POSITIVE
PROGESTERONE RECEPTOR ASSAY (PRA) - POSITIVE
C-erb B-2 (HER-2) - 1+/ NEGATIVE

I went through the cancer treatment of mastectomy-chemotherapy (4 chemotherapy sessions, the last 2 remaining chemo got postponed due to the recent pandemic). We were all hoping for a good result after the chemotherapy, after all, the mastectomy removed the whole of my right breast. However, last August 2020, my routine checks and 2nd BONE SCAN revealed that there is increased activity in the maxilla and mandible is compatible with dent alveolar inflammatory disease.
Compared with a prior study dated 9/18/19, there are new lesions seen in the following: mid-cervical vertebra, right 6th rib anteriorly, and left sacroiliac joint.
There is also interval worsening of the following: L1 vertebra, right sacroiliac joint, and left acetabulum. And a stable bone metastasis was seen in the right iliac bone. Additionally, degenerative changes are seen in the shoulders and knees.
For the past few weeks, I have been experiencing pains in the parts affected by my bone metastasis. In line with this, I am now again advised to undergo another set of cancer treatments includes 2 chemotherapy sessions and radiotherapy. My chemotherapy will be every three weeks and will take about forty-eight hours to complete per session.
We humbly ask everyone for a little bit of help for my 2nd cancer treatment. I do not usually ask for help but this time I am in need of help. Any amount you will give will be greatly appreciated.
With your financial assistance and the grace of God, nothing is impossible. Thank you so much for your prayers and support.
