Surviving Lung Cancer- PLEASE Help!

Wow.

What a year it's been. I am alive :-)

At this moment I am taken aback and will write more when I can get my words together. I have a lot to say! 1,455.OO Raised in 2015. Praying for more help in 2016, thank-you ♡

I just came back to edit this post. I have to add that I honestly feel sick having to recommence this campaign :-(

Why should eating clean be so damned expensive and the appliances needed, wholly! If you blend, dehydrate, mix or mulch, you know what I mean.

I have been back at home for just over 2 weeks now. Grateful to be alive, and out of the fog I have been in. Yesterday and today I have gotten dressed in the morning, and took the dog for a short 5min. walk. I still don't have much strength/breath for tackling too much. Even at this point I still need to take the odd dilaudin. I am so impatient with myself. I need to slow down a bit. On a more positive note my chest xray was good and I will need one every 6 months. I am still in need of donations to reach my goal & I am so very grateful for the help I have received to date. Thank-you

As my surgery date draws nearer, my anxiety and stress is beyond. I am truly thankful for donations to date, and am still hoping I reach or exceed my goal. Every dollar helps :-)

Sender's Message: I wish it could be more. I have stage 4 breast cancer, living in Canada, and know all too well the need for financial support through this crap. I hope you raise every cent you need, and then a little more for peace of mind.



all the strength sister!

I lost my mother 8.5 years ago to this same cancer. She was 55. She fought hard and with grace, never giving up hope. You and your fight are in my prayers. Please remember there are blessings in every struggle and tragedy.
