A Journey to a Better Future
Hello My Dear Friends!
This is Nicole; I have been diagnosed with breast cancer, HER-2+, stage3/4.
This type of cancer occurs rarely, in about 20% of women. It is agressive and has spread to my lymph, chest and arm; however, the good news is they do have 2 drugs to stop/inhibit growth of HER-2+. I have to undergo a lengthy chemo using two inhibitor drugs and two drugs to poison the cancer cells. Then I have to stay on the inhibitor drug, but a side effect is that there is potential for damage to the heart muscle. I consider all this intervention barbaric compared to the healing power of our Lord Jesus/Yeshuah.
There must be a bretter way...I have been researching as fast as I can for answers. I have found that the Integrative approach is the most comprehensive, using standard medical practice and naturpathic methods as an adjunct therapy to aid the body in dealing with the chemo and recovery from the damage. I have been praying for guidance and healing...but it remains that chemotherapy is the method of treatment that will be for now with the naturpathic interventions. It is the secondary interventions that the Medicare and secondary insurance does not pay for and hence I am starting this fundraiser for help to survive. There is yet another path I am seeking and applying for but that has opened up yet, it is using my baby T-cells from my bone marrow to grow new T-cells that can be administered on a regular basis - it has been proven to be a hopeful protocol. But in the meantime, my immediate need for the next year and 1/2 will be the course of chemo therapy and naturpathic interventions to save my life.
The plan of action is 6 courses of chemo every 21 days. Then targeting particular areas with radiation and then finally surgery to remover what is left...do you know what that does to the body? Let alone the soul/Spirit of a person? Yet, it is all medicine has to offer. So you can see I will need extensive help for my body to survive and REBUILD itself.
What can you offer? I am not asking for your sympathy, but for your prayers and for whatever funds you can donate to help the cause of healing and rebuilding. Your donation will help me to have the much needed adjunct therapy to help my body survive. I also need the help of your ernest prayers to God and the healing Spirit of our heavenly Father. He is the Great Physician that I seek for this now life-threatening disease.
I have some dear friends who have come forward and will be available to me and for whom I am truely grateful. Some friends are providing supplements that are natural alternatives to help with nausea and the horribles that may occur. Had I started this process a year ago there would have been more time to prepare my body and catch the cancer early. However, I did not have the proper health insurance at that time to get all the tests needed for diagnosis in the early stages. So now my focus has to be to help my body get through the suffering and recover.
To establish diagnosis, they first performed a mamogram, then an ultrasound and three biopsys - both breasts and lymph. This was followed by a Pet Scan which revealed the spread of the cancer. Recently, more blood work has been done, as well as an electro cardiogram to determine baseline heart function, and a post/port surgically installed in my neck area for the purpose of administering the chemotherapy and other intervenious therapies. We start chemo this week by 2/4/2020.
A POSITIVE OUTLOOK: We are all fortunate to have experienced life in this world and each day is a new chance at the adventure. I thank God for every moment and every breath. And of course our biggest hope is that of eternal life with Him in a state of being where there is no more sin, sickness, disease or death! I look at this as a challenge to get over and I am hoping many of you will give me a hand up this mountain I have to climb. I pray that God will turn all of our challenges in life into good things and for our eternal growth.
I also thank God for each one of you! Thank you for giving what you can and may you be blessed in return 100 fold!
What is my happy thought? It is my dearest one and only Grand-daughter, Rose! She started walking at 10 months and now just turned a year old on January 3, 2020. She loves to play and pretend that she's reading in her sweet little delightful baby talk. I will attach the only really good picture I have with her when she was 6 months old.
For yours and my future health!
John 15:16 You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed and placed and purposefully planted you, so that you would go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit will remain and be lasting, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name (as My representative) He may give to you.
