My brother and I are trying to save the life of our mum.
Our mum is 52 years old and she has recently been diagnosed with cervical cancer, it was really unexpected to us as she has always been into sports and healthy.
It all started this June when she lost consciousness and realised she was on the floor. Then she went to doctors and they found cancer cells and prescribed chemotherapy, which worked for a month but then she started feeling worse, and had bleedings. She lost 8kg. After we decided to send her to more advanced medical hospital in Tel Aviv, that provides the latest technology in cancer treatments. My sister and I could only afford pricey diagnostics, flights, monthly hotel accomodation and all travel expenses, but treatment is much more expensive.
After diagnostics analyses were released, doctors say it is cervical cancer: there is a tumour and cancer cells around it. It can be treated without surgery but that treatment requires urgent action. Tumour has a pressure on internal organs, she takes lots f painkillers during the day and she can't sleep without them at night as the pressure causes an enourmous pain.
Doctors say the treatment will cost about $31000. We've raised huge amount offline yet things are still difficult for us. Hence, we're raising $8000 online to be fully funded for her.
The treatment that doctors prescribe is:
- Brachytherapy (at least 3 courses)
- Anything that will be needed after Brachytherapy (will depend on the result).
(Brachytherapy - is type of internal radiotherapy, which involves putting a solid radioactive source close to, or placed into, the tumour).
We are reaching out to our friends and just about anyone who wants to help, as cancer is such a disease that can't wait, so we are short on time. Any donation that you can make will help us to save her life.
We thank you all for your support and prayers during this difficult time.
