Metastaticgestational trophoblastic tumors:Cancercells have grown inside the uterus from tissue remaining following treatment of a hydatidiform mole or following an abortion or delivery of a baby. The cancer has spread from the uterus to other part

 

I am running this fundraiser for my little sister whose life has come to a screeching halt. A month ago she was a normal 24 year old girl working on her final stages of becoming an RN,  getting a new car, and working with homecare for sick children,when things suddenly went south. She began with a MOLAR Pregnancy and from there it has progressed to bleeding in her abdomen and now for the time being cancer in her lungs. We are currently waiting for results to find out if it has spread to the brain and liver. She unfortunately has NO health insurance, a car payment, rent, and a mass of other bills piling up. I want to take care of the financial part so that she can focus on dealing with chemotherapy. If you can help her with the healing process every little bit helps! Thank you and you can also gain more info. @  http://www.webmd.com/cancer/cervical-cancer/tc/gestational-trophoblastic-tumors-treatment-patient-information-nci-pdq-treatment-option-overview

May 29,2010: HOORAY! Nicky is home. Last night was her first night home and the finish of her first of many more chemo. treatments. As most people know, it makes you VERY sick. I went to fill her first set of prescriptions last night and for 20 of her nausia pills it cost $169. We had to have the Rx only fill half of the perscription and it still cost $69. That is for a 10 day supply. The pain meds and others wound up being $107. I am doing all that I can to help, but it won't be long before she is overwhelmed. The worst of her treatment is yet to come. Just before she goes in for her next one, she will be the sickest. I will update as much as possible. Thank you for your support!
