Event Name: Eugene Marathon 2016
I am setting up this page to help my incredible sister Raquel in her fight against ovarian cancer. She is my best friend, a wonderful sister, loving daughter, and supportive wife and deserves to get the best treatment available so that she can beat cancer! Raquel is the most generous person that I know and the first to offer her help to anyone in need. She lights up a room and is a joy to be around.
“Angels for Raquel” is a mission that is going full force to help Raquel Ndzeidze get to a hospital where she will have a chance to heal her body from a rare form of ovarian cancer. Her doctors at OHSU and MD Anderson Cancer Center have told her that her type of disease does not respond to standard care meaning chemotherapy and radiation are not an option for her. The rarity of this cancer cannot even allow her to do the most aggressive therapies that are done here in the United States such as chemotherapy and radiation. Raquel’s disease is progressing. New imaging last week shows two new tumors. Raquel needs your help to get life saving treatment NOW!
Raquel is eager to get to a hospital that specializes in alternative cancer treatment to heal her body. She is grateful that she has been accepted as a patient at CMN Hospital in San Luis Rio Colorado Mexico. This hospital has been well-established for 30 years and specializes in treating cancer with alternative therapies. Raquel is scheduled to receive four weeks of inpatient therapies and three months of aftercare treatments.
Raquel, was first diagnosed with this rare form of cancer at the young age of 23 where she endured two surgeries to remove cancer successfully. For 9 years Raquel did well, and now she must fight again! She has an excellent support group who love and support her. We need your help to raise $55,000.00 USD. The money will cover her treatment, airfare and other expenses. Our target date to arrive in Mexico is as soon as she receives the available funds. We know she should already be there and that time is of an essence. We need your help if we are going to help save Raquel’s life. All of you who donate are angels in her life. Raquel needs your donations to help get her to the battlefield and to receive the treatment she deserves.
I am asking for your help on my sister's behalf. Please if you are able to make a donation we would greatly appreciate it.
