Hi, my name is Elizabeth Ann Elizalde, 31 yrs old. I am residing in Mandaluyong Philippines and have been independently living alone.
Last, June 2019, I was diagnosed with Endometrial Cancer. It's very unusual for my age because normally when a woman gets this illness, the normal range is 45 years old and above.
I have 3 options on how to get better; First, I need to undergo a Progestin Therapy and be closely monitored for a year. Second, I must get pregnant this will help my Uterus to be renewed. And third, remove my Uterus. Those options are a bit hard on my end. I can't get pregnant because I am still single and also, I don't want to go above and beyond to commit sin. I am a Christian and I am still in faith that God can do extraordinary miracle. The last option, is to remove my Uterus. I can't also consider that option because I am still somehow young. And I still want to have my own family.
I have no choice but to choose the first option which is to undergo Progestin Therapy be closely monitored every now and then. As per my Oncologist, in choosing this option, I have one year of medical intervention. The goal is to revert the cancer cells in my uterus and prevent it to spread to my other organs.
I am now close to the one year time line in reverting the cancer cells. I am now on my 8th month. I have spent so much for the diagnostics, lab tests medication and even the quarterly procedure which is the Hysteroscopy so that we will be able to see if there is a progress. If I won't be able to recover in a span of year my Doctor suggested to remove my Uterus or if my Uterus won't be removed, it will risk my life.
Honestly, I cannot fight this fight alone. I have used up my savings and already in debt so that I can continue my therapy. My medicines are not available somewhere. We normally order it overseas. And I must not stop even just a day. My medical needs are so costly. I don't know where to run to except God. I am trusting Him of situation. I am trusting God that He will send me help and people to run the race with me.
I am wondering maybe you are one of those people who can be a blessing to me by supporting financially.
I know, you're also facing a lot of trouble personally.
My prayer and my hope is that may the Lord will give you ways to fight the good fight of faith. Praying that God will also knock in you heart to help me so that I can continue my medical intervention till I will be completely healed. Know that God will be the one to reward you as you sow to someone else's life.
Thank you for taking time to read this and thank you for your generous. May God bless you more than abundantly.
P.S. I attached a copy of my biopsy from my last Hysterscopy last Oct 17, 2019
