My name is Cătălina. About a year ago, at the age of 33, I gave brith to my first child, a beautiful boy we named Andrei. I had much difficulty breastfeeding him. The doctors looked into this problem and with a one month old baby I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer hormonal positive (er+,pr-, her2-), massive spread on the liver.

I went on treatment with hormonal therapy and ribociclib, that worked very well for others on this type of cancer, but not for me. It only lasted 10 cycles before it spread massivly again. I went through surgery to remove the ovaries and best fit with some solution for the second line of treatment and took biopsy from the liver again to test PIK3CA mutation gene, which went negative, so they are fewer medication options for me. Meanwhile, liver gets more damage and we decide immediatley to start chemo to save it, but before we could do that, it reached to a such amount that chemo can no longer be applied without inducing full damage to it, so that was no longer an option either. Currently my treatments are focusing on regenerating the liver ; the hope is that I can resume chemo if my liver gets strong enough. However, it is very possible that palliative care will be the next step sooner or later. The costs for this are very high in ro. The money raised here will go towards supporting my family to get through this difficult time and afford the best care possible.

Please donate if you are able. Any help will be greatly appreciated by me and my family. Thank you for taking the time to read my story.

-------------------

Numele meu este Cătălina. Cu un an in urma, la 33 de ani, am dat nastere primului meu copil, un baietel minunat pe nume Andrei. Aveam dificultati cu alaptarea. Doctorii au cercetat amanuntit si iata cum la 1 luna dupa investigatii am fost diagnosticata cu cancer de san metastatic (stadiu 4) hormonal pozitiv (er+, pr-, her2-), cu raspandire uriasa la ficat.

Am urmat tratament hormonal si ribociclib care are un parcurs foarte bun in general pt tipul acesta de cancer, insa nu si pentru mine. A rezistat doar 10 luni pana sa se raspandeasca din nou. Am trecut si prin operatia de indepartare ovare pentru a ma potrivi cel mai bine cu o solutie de tratament pe linia 2 si am luat si biopsie din ficat inca o data pentru a testa o mutatie genetica PIK3CA, care a iesit negativa - deci mai putine optiuni de medicamente pentru situatia asta. Intre timp, ficatul devine afectat si mai tare si decidem in urgenta sa incepem chimioterapie pentru a salva, insa cu toate incercarile, ficatul devine si mai afectat si nici chimioterapia nu mai putea fi inceputa fara sa aibe toate sansele sa induca insuficienta hepatica. In prezent tratamentul meu se concentreaza pe modalitati de a regenera ficatul, in speranta sa poata fi inceputa chimioterapia. Insa, este foarte posibil ca ingrijirile paliative sa fie urmatorul pas mai devreme sau mai tarziu. Costurile pot fi foarte mari in Romania pentru asta, sunt putine clinici care se ocupa cu asta. Banii stransi aici vor merge catre ajutorul familiei mele, sa treaca prin aceasta perioada dificila si sa ne permitem cele mai bune ingrijiri.

Va rog sa donati daca puteti. Orice ajutor este apreciat de mine si de intreaga familie. Va multumesc pentru ca ati citit povestea mea.
