I was diagnosed with Her2 breast cancer July 2015, I had a double mastectomy right away. Chemo every 21 days for a year. My first treatment was August 2015 & my last treatment was September 27, 2016. During chemo, my husband lost his job and we had to move to Las Vegas from California. My Oncologist would not allow surgery until after all my treatments were complete. So not being able to work, I lost my car and we have to file bankruptcy. In June 2016, both of my knees swelled to the size of grapefruits. My orthopedic told me that my knee caps do not sit correctly and the constant rubbing on my femur bones have worn holes in the bones. I will need double knee surgery but not until after breast reconstruction surgery. That means I have a total of six surgeries ahead of me. My first breast surgery was November 21, 2016. My 2nd can not be scheduled yet due to complications. Today is February 3rd, 2017. This has been the worst experience in my life (next to my father committing suicide when I was 20) now I’m 46. I still have the incredible ability to always smile. My friends call me sunshine in a bottle. Lately I’m finding it harder to shine. Social Security says I’m not disabled enough. I find that hard to believe. I have a handicap plaque from the DMV. I have difficulties walking around my house. I have 1 or 2 doctors appoints every week. I am just asking for financial help to get me through this. I thank God everyday that the cancer is gone. However, I am no where near healed. I still have a long path ahead of me. Thank you for your support.
