Cancer Treatment - Tanya Da Silva Ferreira

Personal message

My name is Tanya Da Silva Ferreira, I am 45 years old. I was diagnosed with aggressive, invasive, oestrogen-receptor-positive, pre-menopausal metastatic ductal carcinoma, HER-2+ breast cancer on Monday, 27 August 2012, at the age of 36. My treatment plan consisted of six months of chemotherapy, surgery, 28 sessions of radiation and a full hysterectomy due to changing cells.

I am currently on disability for chemo brain since 2012 and my husband is unemployed due to his company closing their doors. He runs a small home based company whilst looking for more opportunities within his field.

I have since been diagnosed with metastatic carcinoma cancer on the 24th November 2020, for the second time. I have since been on Kryxana (chemo tablet) which is three tablets once per day. I have had a half mastectomy and lymph nodes removed, 30 radiation sessions and currently have 3rd degree burns which are being taken care of by a wound specialist.

Private consultations, CT guided biopsies and treatment was not something we could fund in its entirety and therefore have outstanding bills which need to be settled urgently. Please help me raise the funds I need to pay my current outstanding medical bills by making a small donation or share my story through your social media platforms, so I may again live a quality life, finding my “new” normal psychologically and physically. Your contribution/donations will assist me to finance my treatment and give me extra time with my family.

It has been a hard year for many but if you can contribute, even a small amount, it will make a huge difference, it all ads up. 

I have an amazing husband, and two beautiful children, a 23 year old daughter and a 13 year old son.  They are extremely important to me and hold a very special place in my heart.  I unfortunately lost my mom to cancer on the 28th August 2020.  My children and my husband are my strength and the reason for me fighting this battle. Please help me to extend my life and spend more time with them. Help us to get through this.  Allow me to expand my #wingsofhope. God Bless.
