Tracy’s War on Stage IV Lung Cancer

Update posted by Betty Cheung On Nov 19, 2020

Dear Tracy's #ARMY

On Tuesday 17 October 2020, Tracy was scheduled for another chemo/immnotherapy session. But after follow-up with the oncologist, a new treatmentwas prescribed -- owing to Tracy's promising response to the target medicine Pembrolizumab with very few side effects -- just fatigue, slight constipation. Tracy managed so well at home, she never took any of the meds to treat the side effects.

New Target Medicine - Crizotinib

Her doctor has now prescibed Crizotinib at HK$37,100 for 3 weeks worth of medication -- the doctor has prescribed 7 cycles of this target medicine. This particular course of her treatment was covered by the funds raised by Tracy's #ARMY while Tracy applies for a subsidy fromthe Hospital Autority's Samartian Fund. The previous application is null as the target medication has changed. The fund will provide subsidy for future target medicine by not reimburse for retroactive treatments.


Tracy has just started taking the pills as of today, the 19th. She's taking care to monitor her heart rate as one of the side effects of this drug is slowed heart rate.

Tracy's heart rate has been elevated since being admitted to hospital at the end of September. So I suppose this is a fortunate side effect.


Alternative Treatments and Maintainence

Tracy will continue her holistic treatments regularly every 2-3 weeks and will be seeking other alternative therapies that may complement her current treatment. She's fiercely sticking to her high protein, high fat diet and has worked very hard to maintain her BMI.

Thank you to Tracy's #ARMY for all your support. Her #fighter spirit is strong because of your love and support. Please don't stop showing your support.


XOXO Betty

Dear Tracy's #ARMY,

There's another new addition to our rewards sponsored by the famous and fabulous Teresa Norton and her company StarMaker. This reward will be ideal for a small company who wants to start the new year off with a big boost. Read all about it on the rewards page.

Also a quick update on Tracy's recovery. Either the immunotherapy or the holistic physiotherapy or both seem to have helped normalize Tracy's BP and lower her heartrate. Her appetite is increasing and she is breathing more comfortably albeit still with the help of an oxygen concentrator. She feels good enough to pull out #BTS Wembley concert DVD to watch!

The hospital immunotherapy will continue with the second treatment in 10 days time and she has another holistic session on Monday. Tracy's really digging deep and #fighting!!! We won't know how she's doing until the hospital checks on her progress.

There are so many people reaching out to Tracy's War. She has help to drive her to her appointments, make her food and so many friends and strangers making contributions, particularly those shocking her with big surprise donations. Tracy especially wants to thank those who choose to be 100% anonymous. There's no way for her to thank you directly but at least here I can say Tracy's #ARMY is truly gratefully for your selfless contribution. Tracy's recovery owes everything to you.

XOXO Betty

Dear Tracy's #ARMY,


Deepest gratitude to Kim Robinson who has introduced Tracy to physiotherapist and holistic healer, Caroline Rhodes. Caroline did an EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) tapping session for Tracy's first holistic treatment. The session was quite challenging for Tracy as she still has shortness of breath and could only sit up for her session (as reclining blocks her breathing).

The session was an amazing cathartic experience for Tracy and she is facing some of her anxieties and also relearning some valuable things about herself. All I can say is that I saw glimpses of Tracy's natural joy and strength peek through during the session.

Tracy will continue seeing Caroline regularly in the coming weeks to continue her holistic therapy. I am looking forward to continued improvement, emotionally and even physically. Your support of Tracy's War will support these sessions.

Thank you Tracy's #ARMY for delivering HOPE and OPPORTUNiTIES by continuing to fund this long, hard battle.


XOXO Betty

Dear Tracy's #ARMY

In less than 24h, we have exceeded half the initial campaign target. I have been an emotional wreck ever since I woke up this morning. The outpouring support for Tracy's War has been above and beyond. Every donation is a gesture of pure LOVE!

The amazing sponsored reward of an exclusive commissioned painting by Kim Robinson is already taken. I'm already working on new rewards sponsorships to encourage others to join in the #FIGHT.

Some donors have opted to not to accept any reward and for that, I cannot express how touching it is to see how Tracy's connection with her friends far and wide, new and old, is so unbreakable.

Let's keep the LOVE coming. Please continue to share this page wherever you can. #Fighting


XOXO Betty
