Help Odessa, 26 years old, a cheerful and loving daughter, sister, friend and girlfriend, beat the fight against Breast Cancer.

Main image

It all started with a lump on her breast. We thought "very likely it's benign" because of her young age and otherwise she does not have any other symptoms. Then we did the ultrasound where it revealed a suspicious mass (uh-oh). The mass was removed and biopsy was done. We still have our high hopes that it is negative for malignancy. It was extremely dreadful waiting for the results...but nothing could be worst than knowing it is POSITIVE for breast cancer. She was diagnosed with Stage 2 Invasive Breast Cancer. :-(

Odessa lives a simple life and dreams to have her own family in the future. She is an event planner and entrepreneur by profession, running her online and printing business. In her young age, we know that she has great adventures ahead of her and we want her to conquer this battle with breast cancer! We are unceasingly praying for her full recovery and wellness because we know that our GOD is billion times bigger than the big C!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Odessa could be your daughter, sister, bestfriend, nextdoor neighbour or you! (yes, in rare cases, males could have breast cancer too) Have yourself checked cause early diagnosis is the key to overcome this battle!

Funds will be raised for her breast surgery (left breast mastectomy, where they will take out the whole left breast). This is tentatively scheduled on October 23, 2017. Four weeks after, she is planned to start her chemotherapy sessions that will run for 4 to 6 cycles. She will also be needing a breast reconstruction later on.
