Hello, my story started back in November of 2013. I wasn't feeling well one Saturday morning.  I went to urgent care, they couldn't find anything wrong with me. They told me I should go to the ER to have more test ran. I did and I was there for 9 hours of testing. The doctor came and asked me If I had an oncologist? Now why on earth would I have one of those doctors with no family history.  That's when it all started. I had surgery to remove my ovaries,  then started chemotherapy for 6 months. I was told if I had a clean bill of health for 5 years I'd be cancer free. Right at my 5 year point I was diagnosed with stage 4 aggressive cancer. I had 1 chemotherapy treatment and felt like I was going to die. I then decided to go to Mexico for cancer treatment. I had heard good things about curing cancer so at the cost of $35,000.00 I went there for 3 weeks. I wasn't cured and was told I needed to come back for more treatment at the cost of $10,000.00. I was tapped out. I don't have anymore money. I'm fighting my cancer back at home hoping and pray for a cure in my like time. My goal at this point is to out live my dad. I would hate for him to have to come to my funeral.
