This fund is for Elizabeth (Lyssa) Ambriz, to help with my fight against Hodgkin Lymphoma. All funds will go towards medical expenses.

Hi. My name is Elizabeth Ambriz, but most know me as Lyssa. I was first diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at age 5, more than 39 years ago. In 1973, I was given 6 months to live, but thanks to God, I survived with chemo, radiation, and two surgeries. I have since had complications that include thyroid removal and scar tissue built up in my arteries due to the chemo and radiation given at age 5. I had open heart surgery in 2009 and have valve problems, aortic, and mitral problems. In February of 2012, I was again diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I have been hospitalized numerous times since then due to more complications with the chemo treatments. I am being given ABVD, but they have stopped using the Bleomycin due to lung complications.
A single parent of a 19 year old son, I now find myself needing help to pay for my medical bills. Working as a receptionist for a high school, I have missed many days of work and was placed on FMLA for a while, but I am back at work. I have insurance but need help with deductibles and copays. Anything you could donate would be greatly appreciated. May God bless you.
