My latest adventure starts with Cancer. Cancer is a beast not only physically but emotionally and financially. The cost to treat it and to stay healthy are enormous.

Being a survivor is awesome but winning the war is better.

I need help to pay my continually growing medical bills. All donations will make an immediate impact! I am unable to pay my bills and pay for my drugs. I need help to get past this moment.

16 June, 2017 I went to the hospital. When they figured what was wrong with me after 2 weeks, I was moved to Tampa General Hospital Cancer Center. Luckily since the first hospital didn’t accept my insurance.

I was diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma, a form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and the fastest growing tumor! The tumor filled my stomach. On the CT scans, no guts showed at all!

My cancer was treated with lots and lots of chemo over six months.  I spent at least two weeks every month in the hospital and the rest of the time as an outpatient, visiting the hospital every other day.   The chemo came in a bag and by spinal tap.

In November I had a break from chemo.  I was admitted to the hospital for low platelets, and caught MRSA. Chemo and the antibiotics to kill MRSA can’t be done at the same time.

The month off from my chemo regimen had a few ironies.  Before my next round of chemo, my CT scan showed no signs of cancer! I had visible guts again! I was able to skip the last two months of chemo treatments!

And cue pain, my tornado riding on the back of the hurricane. After 6 months of basically living at a hospital with very little movement, my body wasn’t happy. Yes, I am cancer free and therefore WINNING! I have my 2 year CT scan to make sure I have no cancer July 2019. With my type of cancer if it doesn’t come back within 2 years, it won’t.

With each chemo treatment I was given lots and lots of ciprofloxacin to keep me from dying from the massive amounts of poison being pumped into my body.

My body and mind were falling apart and I had no idea why. I learned I had Cipro Toxicity, which feels like rheumatoid arthritis. I have peripheral neuropathy in my hands and feet.

But wait there’s more. Chemo messed up my gut and taste buds, making eating an adventure! And don’t forget, they pumped chemo into my brain through a spinal punch two times during each round of treatment. Chemo brain is not for the weak. The loss of complex thoughts is terrifying.

Today I’m doing better. Every day I am. I am working with my Drs on pain management. I sadly not on the path where the cirpo toxicity and brain fog goes away after a year.

2019 I started to use CBD oil. CBD along with my round of daily drugs, has created a dent in the pain and given me hope. I am able to walk 2 miles a day and can do 3 hours of work a day.

I want to sigh again. What is a sigh?

That feeling when you don’t look down a double diamond lip and just go.

That feeling when the rigging is humming and the sails are perfectly trimmed.

That feeling when you hit a perfect stop.

That feeling when you hit your stride.

That feeling when you are overwhelmed with love.

A sigh for me today?
Walking almost 2 miles a day. It’s not pretty, but I’m outside and moving.
Bursts of brilliance lasting longer all the time.
Retaining those clever moments for longer.

Why I need help?

The cost to treat cancer and to stay healthy are enormous. Two years of hospital bills, luckily most were covered by health insurance. I’ve run through my savings. In 2018 I didn’t make enough money and now my health insurance, that I HAVE to have, has quadrupled.

I can’t pay my bills.
I can’t afford my treatments.
I am working as much as I am able and it’s not enough.

I raise my hand and ask for help.

Even if you didn’t know of my adventure until now, I know am I loved. Thank you, your strength has been guiding me.

Please spread the word. I am grateful beyond words for the generosity. I am excited for the time I will be able to pay it forward.

hugs!
