Sadly I have been diagnosed with Breast and Ovarian cancer which has spread to my bones. I am wanting to raise money to be able to purchase some much needed medicine from overseas. I am currently doing Chemo which has really taken it's toll on my body. I am in and out of hospital on a regular basis for blood transfusions. At one point my white blood cells were sitting on 1.2!!! My platelets were 1000 as well which is critically low anything below 100 000 is considered abnormal and at 1000 you at risk of internal bleeding which did happen to me and I was pretty much in a coma rushed to hospital. I have been importing some Thymic protein which has since helped my platelet count increase it is currently sitting on 79 000 so nearly at 100 000 mark. A kind friend gave me some Beta glucans 1-3D which also has helped me in more ways than one. The trouble is these products are expensive to bring into South Africa as they are not available here the Beta Glucans with shipping comes to R3000 and that's one month's supply the Thymic Protein is another R2000. There are a couple of other products which I would like to get to help boost my immune system and increase or rather kick start red blood cell production in order to stop having these horrible blood transfusions so I can feel like a normal person again not constantly fatigued due to low hemoglobin. For those that don't know this is vitally important for the body as it carries oxygen to every cell in your body and without oxygen one is left feeling exhausted. Plus your heart tends to work overtime to try and compensate which leaves me extremely light headed. I am continuing with chemo but the Dr wants to increase my dosage and I feel it's vitally important to boost my immune system as much as possible sadly none of the medicine I need is available here and needs to be imported which comes to a hefty sum of R20 000 per month.
I am only 41 years of age and I have three beautiful children and I plan on beating this horrible disease. I was working up until recently but sadly my boss place me on unpaid leave for six months with conditions I cannot meet to return to work so sadly I am currently unemployed.
If anyone can help with donations big or small it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for you time
God Bless xx
