Hi! My name is Stephany, and I'm a 27 year old mother of a handsome little boy!
My goal is to raise money for a medical procedure, a stem cell transplant. Currently this is not something that is offered in the United States. It has been proven to cure many disease and cancers.
Since 2010 I have experienced a huge decline in my health, from being diagnosied with cancer, having surgery to have an ovarian tumor removed, that had wrapped it self around other organs, being diagnoised with another auto immune disease, to now my biggest obsticale living in extreme pain everyday.
Everyday is full of challenges as early as from the moment I wake up; I don't know if I'll physically be able to get out of bed. My alarm rings and at that moment I will see how my day will begin. Some days I make it off my bed and fall to the ground, some days I wake up and don't have enough energy to sit up, some days I can sit up but can't stand, and on my good days I get up, get dressed and am ready for the day to begin. Through out the day my main goal is to get through work doing the best job possible with out sacraficing the quality of it. My main struggle during this time is to not show the pain I'm experiencing. At times I experience flashes of intense pain that I hide in the bathroom to cry.
