This is the Missysupport fund. Funds raised will go directly towards off-setting the costs of cancer treatments.

I have been living with breast cancer for almost 6 years now. Stage 3C from the beginning and stage 4 ('terminal') for 5 years now. I believe I am still here largely due to the fact that I have utilized many alternative and complementary therapies along the way.

We are currently trying out a metabolic therapy which is cutting edge...and having some good successes. My treatments include use of off-label drugs to block certain actions of the cancer, as well as hyperthermia. These treatments cost me close to $1000 a week. I am also currently using conventional treatments...just finished 4 weeks of radiation to the hip/pelvic/femur area. All conventional medicine has to offer though is palliative care and extention of life which one much heavily weigh with quality of life. I use these complementary treatments such as the metabolic therapy to try and make a bigger difference....perhaps a longer extention of life...perhaps the chance to continue to watch my kids grow and the gift of engaging with life.
Thank you for helping.
