Cancer Treatments

Personal message

I was diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma Cancer Stage 2B in October 2016, with a 6cm mass in my uterus. We opted for a combination of holistic and conventional treatments - healing the body was top priority.

I finished treatment in January 2018. In total - we did 25 external radiations and 5 brachytherapies. Unfortunately, we still have a mass in the uterus (3cm). The doctors are running out of options now, and have offered us an 'exenteration'. They hope to just remove the uterus but they cannot guarantee my other organs (bladder and bowel). Again, we are looking at more options to help reduce the mass so they can get clear margins via the operation. 

Please help my family get the treatment we need. I can’t leave my two girls - they are my life & inspiration. Skyla is 20 years old & Tavia is 8 years old. They are the most incredible beings you will ever meet. I want to see them grow up & embark on a beautiful life. I want to be at their weddings. I want to hold my grandchildren.

Cancer is such a debilitating illness. It has ripped me of many things, stripping me to my core of all that I used to be – but I have love & support from family & friends & that keeps me going. Asking for help is very difficult - but my children come before my pride. I am reaching out to anyone who can help.

We have now opened a website (http://www.iamhealing.co.za/) that allows people to show their support to friends and family fighting chronic illness battles. Your support truly means the world to us. We have so many idea's for this site and plan to expand on products.

Just wanted to say thanks to all who have donated / shared / supported / sent love / made contact etc... I am in absolute awe at everyone's generosity.

I was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer Stage 2B in October 2016. We are looking at other options to help reduce the tumour – be it chemo/photoradiation therapy but the costs are expensive. Please help my family get the treatment I need. I can’t leave my two girls - they are my life & inspiration.
