Last December 9, 2017, I was diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma Stage 1B
after my Hysterectomy in November 2017. Leiomyosarcoma (LMS) is a rare type of cancer that affects smooth muscle tissue. These tumours are most common in the abdomen but can occur anywhere in the body, including the uterus. Other common sites include blood vessels and skin. LMS is caused by gene mutations in the DNA of a single smooth muscle cell that has multiplied itself. What caused this mutation is unknown and more research is needed. I completed my 6 cycles of Chemotherapy last May 2018
and had my PET Scan done in July 2018 with all clear results. Full monitoring, from Mammography, Colonoscopy, CT Scan etc. while on remission. Last November 2018 during my Lung CT Scan, a nodule (0.9cm)
found on my Upper Left Lung which needs to be check through Biopsy.
However, my Oncologist and Radiologist recommended undergoing the Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery procedure as they confirmed that my cancer had recurred. Through this fundraise last year, we were able to raise some funds to get the treatment done. I had
my VAT Surgery last October 29, 2019, and continued my treatment every 3
months by doing the CT Scan to ensure that any recurrence could be trace immediately since the type of cancer I have is the rare and active one.
Again, last November 17, 2020, during my CT Scan, another news came back to me and again another nodules were spotted this time in my right lung measuring 3.1cm and 2.1cm. Another recommendation from my oncologist is to remove the nodules since this is the only way to cure this deadly disease, SURGERY. I had my 3rd surgery last January 22, 2021, and the supposed to be the removal of 2 masses in my right lung became a major surgery and ended up in Lobectomy. My right lung upper lobe was removed instead. This time CHEMOTHERAPHY was recommended after my surgery since there is a 0.5cm nodule in my left lung that is not possible to be remove due to the size. I have used up all my resources,
already asked friends and family to help me financially. I am drained
and exhausted but I still want to live longer and continue to fight. Due to my continuous treatment and expensive medical expenses, I have used up all my savings, drained my health insurance to sustain all the treatment that I needed. I am losing hope as I am not sure how long I would be able to fight and beat this disease. This time, I am again pleading to all to please help me raise the funds for my CHEMO as I still want to live and continue my fight. I am tired and hopeless now but because of my brother and sister, I still want to continue to fight. PLEASE HELP
With a little help and support again, I am trying to raise the amount that I will be needing for my Chemotherapy again so I could be able to continue this treatment. I am humbly asking for your help to raise the amount for this procedure. With a little help, you would be able to save my life. God Bless.
