Help Me Have Urgent Surgery

Hey everyone <3

I never thought I'd be sharing this news with you and almost one month after I first started my fund; I have a donor, who is willing to pay for the whole procedure! Can you believe it?! I also know this person so the willingness to help came as a huge surprise to me and I am eternally grateful. In less than two weeks, I'll go in for my booked laparotomy and walk out after my hospital stay duration as young woman with many hopes and dreams for the future, burning stronger than ever! I have already thanked the donor, but I'll never stop being thankful for the much-needed surgery I am about to receive.

I want to thank everyone for the continued support and donations, from strangers, friends and family, and the lovely people who believed in my story wholeheartedly enough to share it on Facebook; I will always think of you and one day have a cause going for cancer sufferers and people with the same condition as myself. My donation total is R 2 315.00, not counting my offline donations, which will go towards expensive additional medical costs such as medication or consultation fees that my mdeical insurtance will most likely not pay for. As of now, 773 people have viewed my page on GoGetFunding.com, and 50+ people have shared my story on their Facebook pages. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! You have no idea how much this means to me! I'll never forget.

I will continue to run my page to provide updates of me in and after hospital. I cannot wait to no longer look at myself in the mirror with anxiety, and looking at a bulging tummy thanks to my benign tumour will soon be a thing of the past. An almost 4-month journey will conclude with a successful surgery and recovery time. My God is able :)

Don't stop believing!

Nicaela.

Hey Everyone,

I've just had my first challenge of coming out with my condition tonight. I sent a campaign message to a lot of my contacts in the hope that they would be inspired to share my story. I unfortunately upset one lady and this caused her to lash out at me, saying how could I need surgery if I didn't look like I needed it, that "your v****a needs surgery" and this is a scam. That really hurt because its like saying my entire life is a scam. It took me an immense anount of courage to even come out about this. I told her that I'll forgive her, for as Jesus said on the cross "Forgive them, for they know not what they have done". That made me feel better, instead of lashing out at her. I used to be a sales consultant, which involved getting as many contacts as you could to try and generate an income, and I absolutely hated it - that is how I had her as a contact. However, I've certainly learnt further in all this; don't always expect kindness from a stranger.

In further response to her message and as an education tool I'd like to use, you don't have to look like you need surgery, to need surgery. I know this from my condition, from people I know going to the doctor seemingly healthy, and coming out with a troubling diagnosis, especially cancer. In the beginning stages you won't see it! And that is how it changes your life forever. The worst thing you can do is just believe that everyone is a scam artist; which is why I decided to attach the letter from my doctor to my fundraising campaign. You will find it in my images x Whether you believe it or not, its very real to me. The feelings of discomfort, having to use the bathroom more than most people and the re-accuring bladder infections are VERY real to me. The possibility of future problems are very real to me, but I chose to believe that you are not helped until you help yourselv. As embarrassing as that was, I did it tonight. Maybe I won't do it again in this way, but I will find a way to not give up without a fight.

From just a girl with a bright future,

Nicaela.

Hey everyone,

I have just uploaded a photo of my protruding lower abdomen, taken today (07 May 2018).

No matter how much I pull my stomach in (even with good posture), it protrudes like that of a pregnant woman. The high-waisted jeans I am wearing to work today prove to be of some discomfort. I try to avoid wearing any high-waisted skirts and pants nowadays as they tend to make my stomach look a bit bigger. These very jeans used to be lose on my pelvic region, and they now fit like a glove! :( Obviously this is a bad thing because it proves that my mass is growing. My campaign image was taken in December 2016, 1 year and 3 months before the discovery of my mass. At the time, I experienced no symptoms. In 2017, symptoms such as bladder pain and later, infection, occurred on a regular basis as a result of the immense pressure this mass places on my bladder. I will upload more images of my protruding abdomen throughout my campaign.

Have an awesome day x

Nicaela.

Hi everyone :)

So last week I received two new donations and I can't believe my own eyes at the kindness I have experienced so far. I have always been someone of simplistic expectations, never expecting and asking for much. I strongly believe that a life of no expectation is a largely happy one. Which is why I was brought to tears this week, with my new fund total of R2,305.00. I'll be happy if even just my story is shared, but a large donation?! Wow, just wow. Thank you for the continued support guys, it really means a lot to me. I'll never be able to say 'Thank you' enough.

Ending off, I wanted to share a new quote I came up with, for people with medical conditions like myself to proclaim every day: "I may have a medical condition, but I am NOT a medical condition!"

Your fighter,

Nicaela.

Hey Everyone!


I am excited to see that my page is now public.This update has brought renewed hope to me, that someone somewhere will be touched by my story. I am grateful that a website like GoGetFunding.com is helping so many lives and giving people like myself a platform to view and share their story. I have always enjoyed writing, especially journal entries as a teenager, and now I can use this gift to share something about me and why I took the step to come out of my comfort zone and request your donations. I can imagine that any issue relating to possible infertility or cancer would frighten any woman and especially our younger sisters. If you know of any lovely lass who is going through a difficult time, please be a foundation of support to her: we as women tend to say that we are okay when that is actually not always the case. Love her unconditionally and don't forget to show it, everyday.

Thank you for your time in reading my first entry :)

Nicaela.
