Help me fight off this cancer!!

Hi Friends. I am not one to ask for help or handouts, but I've never been confronted with my current situation. I have been diagnosed with stage 1 ovarian cancer and my employer does not offer more than 21 days of disability insurance (which I used up already).

Long story short, I went to the ER in May because of a painful cyst that burst on my left ovary. A few tests later they discovered a mass growing there. At this time it was 9 cm long (about 4 inches) and on July 26th when I had surgery to have it removed, the mass had grown to 17.7 cm (about 7 inches) and it was found to be a cancerous tumor.

Luckily it was caught early, but the type of cancer I have is clear cell carcinoma which is fairly rare and more aggressive than the average. This means that even though the diagnosis was stage 1 and it has not shown up elsewhere, the doctors have all agreed that the best course of treatment for me is to undergo a full course of chemo.

I have medical insurance, but because I can't work during this treatment period, I can definitely use all the help I can get. I mostly need financial help with my day-to-day needs as well as for things that are not covered by insurance. I plan to integrate naturopathic medicine with the chemo and it is not covered by insurance.

As an alternative to direct monetary donations I would also appreciate gift cards to the following: Amazon, Safeway, Foodland, Times Supermarket, Kokua Market, Down to Earth, or Whole Foods.

I will post updates as I have them. Currently I am scheduled to start chemo on September 16.

Please feel free to share this. I know the internet has the potential to reach our community across the globe.

Love and happiness are going to get me through this. I truly appreciate each and every one of your kind words, positive thoughts, and well wishes. Please keep the love flowing my way in this challenging time.

Much love to you all.
