This is Ernestina's Hope for Ernestina Alvarado. To cure her Myeloma. I appreciate any assistance you can give. God Bless you.

Hello and Thank you for visiting my page. I am Ernestina Alvarado and I have Stage 1 IgA Kappa Myeloma. This a type of cancer that effects the blood producing cells in the bone marrow.

It is my hope that with help from friends, family and those guided to this site I can seek treatment and restore my life.
I am grateful to have that option out there and with your help it is within reach.

I was born in Zacatecas, Mexico and came to the USA when I was eight years old. I got married when I was 17 and I started working. Sadly my husband did not and I continued working hard to raise the four children that followed. I have never collected any assistance. Three of four now live and work on their own and my last one that is still in college lives with me. Six years ago, my husband left and took most of what I owned with him. Despite that pain and hardship I continued working two jobs to make a better life.

In 2009 I received my diagnosis and have struggled to keep working but in March of 2012 I was forced to give up my main job in bookkeeping. My health could not sustain.

I am a proud Latina American woman who must ask for help.
