Eliminate Dennis the Cancer

Eliminate Dennis the Cancer

Personal message

Hi! First off, thank you for visiting my page and any donation received will be appreciated! 
I found out about Dennis (my affectionate name for this bugger) by accident when I was admitted to the hospital for Pancreatitis. They found some lesions on my liver, which turned out to be Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer (metastasised).
My medical insurance has processed my claim and paid out around R140,000 against a bill of approximately R385,000 (to date!) I'm cashing in policies that I have, but I am still very deep in financial poo. 
That's my story in short, happy to chat with anyone who would like more detail.
Update (March 2022): I am now halfway in my 12-session chemo schedule! Have #7 next week. I am doing well. I have nausea and extreme tiredness, but I am still managing it. I am still working; however, I am not in the classroom anymore but in Admin Management. Thank goodness I am still able to work! My meds for the Ascites (fluid build-up in my stomach) are working and the swelling only happens occasionally now.  We are still hopeful that the chemo will shrink my tumour enough to relieve the pressure. My hair is falling out, which we expected from the very beginning, and soon I will be bald. Not such a bad thing really...as my dad says I "have a good, shaped dome!" 
I am touched by the amount if people who have donated towards my medical bills! You are all angels! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Lots of hugs,
Sandy

Hi! First off, thank you for visiting my page and any donation received will be much appreciated!  Fourways, Gauteng.

I found out about Dennis (my affectionate name for this bugger) by accident, when I was admitted to hospital for Pancreatitis. They found some growths on my liver, which turned out to be Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer

My  medical insurance has processed my claim and paid out a total of R100,000 against a bill of approximately R325,000 (to date!) I'm cashing in policies that I have, but I am still very deep in financial poo.
