PLEASE HELP SAVE ME! I am a 32-year old single mom from Davao City. I have an 11 year old son. I was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Cervix, Large Cell Type, Non-keratinizing Stage IIIB last April 8, 2019.
This might be a lengthy post but I humbly request that you read through and know my story. Please share my story to your wives, girlfriends, sisters, to everyone who you care for. Cervical Cancer can't easily be detected until you show signs and symptoms at the late stages. To all the ladies out there, please... please have your regular pap smear.
I regularly have my menses and noticed blood clots with my menses since September 2018 which I thought was normal with my reproductive age. I also had noticed heavy vaginal discharge that has a foul odor since November 2018 and couldn't go out and about without wearing sanitary pads. In February, the odor was gone but still had heavy blood-tinged vaginal discharge. By February 25, 2019, I had spotting, abnormal vaginal bleeding with foul smelling discharge postcoital which prompted me to search the web for further information before visiting my OB Gyne and found out that symptoms might be of Cervical Cancer. March 11 came and had my menses again. After a week, I thought I had my menses again but it was different. I was experiencing abnormal vaginal bleeding which led me to finally visit an OB Gyne for a consult.
March 28, 2019, during the consultation, the OB got my medical history then performed pelvic exam. I profusely bled out upon insertion of the speculum. She palpated a mass at around 6cm. I asked her what it was and suggested that by the look and size of the mass, it might be Stage IIIB Cervical Cancer. I felt it was not real, it can't be real! She immediately ordered lab tests and a biopsy.
April 5, 2019 I got my biopsy results and it says, "Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Large Cell Type, Non-Keratinizing". It is confirmed, I have cancer but I don't know the stage yet. April 8, I had a followup visit the the OB with all the lab results on hand. I was then referred to an OB Onco specialist. My cancer was staged as Cervical Cancer Stage IIIB and was advised for chemotherapy and radiation therapy ASAP.
I humbly ask for any assistance to help me in the funding of my treatment and to help save me as I am now not working and I have an 11-year old son and a wonderful and supportive fiance who I want to grow old with and have kids. I don't want to leave a hole in my family, relatives and friends' hearts.
I fervently ask for your prayers and thank you in advance and God bless your hearts!
