Cushla’s stem cell transplant support
After a year of fighting lymphoma I need a stemcell transplant. I am asking for help to cover costs while I am receiving treatment.Canterbury
Hi I have been fighting Lymphoma cancer for the last year. After 12 rounds of different chemo i am having a stem cell transplant in hope of clearing the cancer cells. In that time I have been unable to work and my family have worked hard to make ends meet.
I would like to raise some money to help relieve the financial burden while I have my transplant. I will have to be away in Christchurch hospital for at least 4weeks with a support person, it would be great not to have to worry about how we will cover to cost of medical costs, transport back and forward from Timaru to Christchurch, accomodation, bills and food over this time and while I recover.
Use of funds
I will use funds to cover treatment costs like prescription fees which are not cover and are expensive. transport, accomodation, food for myself and a carer while I am away from home and after as I recover.
Heading Home Soon 19 June 2021
It been a long 5 weeks since my last update. I had my Car T cells put back in on the 24/5, spent 2 weeks in Wellington Hospital getting looked after and cared for by their wonderful staff. Had a few really rough days.
Been in outpatient accomodation for the last 2weeks with daily checks at hospital. Also have had Nola here to keep a watchful eye on me and make sure I remember to take my meds and temperature.
Heading home next week to continue my recovery. Have to return for monthly checkups for the next few months. I get a CT/ PET scan in 2 month to see if it is working. Fingers crossed til then. Thank you for all your donations, messages of support and caring.
