One Rare Lady
Organized by: Adam Ramsey
Ruby Tirado is 39 years old with a 7 year old son named Christopher. She is a Registered Nurse at Balboa Senior Home in Chula Vista California. Fluent in Italian, Spanish and English, Ruby is a true gem of a humanitarian. She was working 12 / 24 hr. shifts at Scripps Mercy Hospital for years until recently, when her Doctor(s) told her she needs to slow down...
At 36, Ruby was stricken with breast cancer. The diagnostic testing revealed that she also had Hodgkin's Lymphoma and bone cancer. She underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatment 3x a week for 32 weeks in 2011. That didn't work. 2 more years of chemotherapy took its toll on Ruby. In 2011-12, she was admitted into Hospice 3 times in 2 years with a prognosis of 2 months to live. Ruby's husband divorced her with a 4 year old son.
Ruby Lives! Ruby beat breast cancer and now is battling Lymph node and Bone cancer. She needs an unapproved treatment called Inhibitor Ibrutinib (Vapor) Therapy. Her co-payments are $500/week for 6+ months and a bunch of new prescriptions. We have privately raised $2000 for her to start this treatment Immediately. She started treatment 4 weeks ago with 77% cancerous cells being produced. Her results from last weeks treatment revealed 50% cells. It's working!
Please help Ruby and Christopher live life to the fullest. Kindest Regards -
