MaryLou's journey through melenoma

Organized by: Mary Lou Doherty

Here is my story...I was diagnosed with stage 3 melenoma in December 2011. Spread to stage 4 after spreading to lymphs, spleen and both lungs and breast. After multiple surgeries, radiation therapy and infusion therapy, my tumors shrank and disappeared! After 2 yrs of remission this March my scan showed thatbthe beast had returned with a vengeance to my sternum lung and chest wall. Surgery April 6th to remove all masses. Follow up June 25th to see if there's a recurrence. Hoping for the best. So, long story short. I desperately need help financially. I have reached out to support groups, social workers,politicians, section 8, housing and public assistance. I have even applied for part time jobs to no avail. So my disability check doesn't even pay my rent let alone my utilities. I sold my car to pay rent. Bottom line I need assistance and it has taken all I have in me to create this page. My amazing Mother and generous son have been more than generous in trying to help me throughout this time...but, they too have lives. I am asking only to get out of this huge hole that this circumstance has put me in. Not for personal enjoyment but to get back on my feet and live again while trying to keep this demon at bay. Thank you from the bottom of my heart❤
