Hey guys...for those of you following my story, I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. I also wanted to update everyone on what I need to achieve my surgery. Thanks to donations from family and friends, and also a grant i got approved for, I More ...
My name is Wendy Sotelo, and I am 25 years old. A few months ago I went to the doctor because I was having some chest pain and trouble breathing. After taking several tests and getting x-rays done, I was told I had a mass in one of my lungs. I had more tests done to find out more about the mass and I was told it was a cancerous tumor. The biopsy I had done resulted in a benign cancerous tumor. In order to find out more about the exact size and what kind of cancer it is, I am in need of an MRI. Unfortunately, I cannot have an MRI because of the metal in my body. Six years ago, I was shot during a drive-by shooting, and a bullet was left inside my arm. Over the past six years, the bullet has fallen apart and moved into my back. As of three months ago, the bullet is one inch away from my spine and is still currently moving. Because the incident took place six years ago, no insurance will cover my pre-existing condition, which means that they will not cover my surgery. I need to raise $40, 000 in order to have my surgery to remove my bullet and be able to treat my tumor. Any contribution towards my surgery is greatly appreciated. If you can help me with any kind of contribution and help me spread the word, I would be eternally grateful. Thank you.
