I first and foremost need money for my treatment. Chemotherapeutic pills, IV cancer therapy, precisely targeted radiation, and side effect managing medications are all incredible medical advances that provide hope to so many cancer patients like me but their costs also pile up quickly. Right now it’s even too early to estimate the ultimate cost of my treatment. On top of medical bills, I also have student loan and rent payments that consume nearly all of my income even after I minimized my expenditures. If only I had gotten my Hogwarts letter; I don’t remember Harry, Ron, or Hermione ever paying tuition. I only ask for help to pay my bills in the coming months until I am physically ready to return to work and get my life back.
I am truly blessed for all of my wonderful family and friends. My fight against cancer is not a fight that I will be facing alone but rather with a team of supporters both near and far. Any help that you can give me will be greatly appreciated and will help me overcome the most important hurdle of my young adult life. If you are able to donate to my fight, please leave me your address so that I can send you a thank you card and a supporter sticker. The stickers are from an advanced melanona foundation called Melanoma Just Got Personal (see link below). You can post a picture of you and your sticker on social media with the hashtag “Melanoma Just Got Personal” and you will officially be on team Elizabeth! If you cannot donate, prayers and thoughts are also encouraged and appreciated. It takes all forms of help to beat cancer! I firmly believe that everything happens for a reason. God’s ways are certainly mysterious and I don’t know why He placed these obstacles in front of me but I am ready to overcome them and have faith that things will turn out okay. Together, we will beat melanoma.
