My Special Wish

" I really hope & pray I could survive this devastating disease because I still have a seven year old son who needs my maternal care and upbringing. I even ask God to grant me even just a few or more extended years. "

   I am a 49 years old cancer patient from the Philippines, I have the type of cancer called Adeno Carcinoma.  It had already metastasized from the left to the right lobe but not yet to the liver and neighboring lymph nodes around the lungs.  I was able to undergo four chemo using Taxol combined with Carboplatin for four months from now. After the 3rd chemo the C.T. Scan showed that the cancer nodule only shrinked a bit.

 

   I feel so weak and devastated every chemo, sometimes I dont want to go on anymore because I feel that my health is deteriorating every time I undergo chemotherapy.  It's a good thing that I became part of the Iressa clinical study. My response to the drug is remarkable. But of course with mild side effects that is much better than the side effects of chemotherapy. As of now, I'm still taking Iressa. But I'm still weak and don't feel well most of the time.

 

  I dont have any insurance to finance my medication, so I would like also to extend my great need to communicate with you.  I still want to live longer.  Please help me, nobody here in the Philippines was able to help me because there are no support groups here.  I have heard about the GVAX clinical trial but it's only available in America. We cannot afford the high cost of treatment in U.S. because we dont have any medical insurance. Also we have no relative to stay with and we dont have sufficient money for my food allowance or medicine which will be prescribed by my doctor during my stay there. I have heard a lot of cancer patients who survived because of the advance medical treatment in U.S., and I hope I could be one of them. Maybe God will give me chance if there are good hearted people who are willing to help me.  I thank God Almighty that there are some kind hearted persons who are still concerned about cancer patients and wished to help. I really wish to go to U.S. earliest possible time if anybody could finance my medical treatment there.

 

     I really hope & pray I could survive this devastating disease because I still have a seven year old son who needs my maternal care and upbringing. I even ask God to grant me even just a few or more extended years.

 

     Please help me live longer and may God bless us all. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart.  Ill be waiting for your reply.  May Almighty God bless us always.

 

Sincerely,

 

Susan
