Her name is Vickie Harrold (Johnson) and she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in December of 2015. At the same time she gave birth the doctors found a large mass in her chest.
The mass turned out to be a very rare cancer that is invading her heart and crowding her lungs.
The massive doses of chemotherapy suggested have not proven to be effective on this rare cancer type, so she is pursuing alternative and natural methods to shrink the tumor.
Unfortunately, insurance does not cover these alternate therapies and they are very costly.
Since they are so expensive, she is unable to do the recommended amount of treatment to shrink the tumor and be as effective as possible against cancer growth.
The good thing is, so far she has lived seven times longer than the doctors said she would, and she doesn’t intend on going backwards! She has a beautiful 13 month old who needs her mom. She has a positive outlook and is determined to beat this cancer and see her little girl grow up - she needs a Mommy. In order to have the best odds of conquering this cancer she is in need financially to afford the full recommend doses of treatments which include Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) and IV infusion treatments. She will have to travel and stay out-of-state for these treatments. These funds would also help with medical expenses she has already incurred. Any money raised over necessary medical expenses will be placed in a trust account for her daughter.
