In 2018 my twin sister, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 and beat it, was told her cancer had come back and metastasized to her liver. She is a fighter though and so positive. With the initial doses of chemo that she had for 7 months it killed all but the tiny bit that they call inactive or stable. At first it was a mix of 3 different chemo meds every few days, but now it is down to a mix of two chemo meds every 3 weeks. The one chemo med that made her really sick is not in the mix anymore. She will only do that one again when the cancer comes back, and it will come back.
She will have treatments every 3 weeks for the rest of her life because there is no cure for metastatic breast cancer. She is on disability now at the request of her doctor. He says her only job now is to fight cancer.
I think she is running through her bucket list, I admire her living her life to the fullest, but cry each time I think about why she has to. I have taken a lot of little trips with her this past year and she is always thinking of more and more to go on. I have 3 years until I retire so I can spend more time with her, the issue is will she still be feeling good enough for us to be able to.
She has been my best friend since we were in the womb, and neither of us had kids so we are each other’s person. Sisters have a great bond, but twin sisters, there is nothing stronger. I really do not know what I am going to do without her. I can’t even do a search for metastatic breast cancer to see how I can help, or if there are new treatments because when I see the statistics I am a mess and have to stop.
I need to be able to be with my sister as much as possible, can you help?. I am asking for 75,000 so I can pay off my bills and retire from work to spend all the time I can with her. I have added a picture of the 2 of us when we both our heads shaved down together right after the diagnosis.
Thank you so much for all your help, you cannot know what it means to me.
