Support me in my fight against cancer

Hi everyone,

I am Jessie Eyles, 32 years old living in Chennai with my husband and my young three and a half year old son.

On the fifteeth of January this year a self breast exam made me anxious due to some hardness in the left breast. On seeing the doctor and running the tests I was diagnosed with breast cancer in the second stage. A whole body PET Scan conducted on 25 January 2017 revealed a left breast tumour with satellite nodules and mestastatic deposits in the left axillary and left internal mammary nodes.

I am honestly terrified because no one expects to get cancer so young. There was no genetic history of cancer in my family.  As a young mother my heart goes out to my young son and it is my only wish to see him grow into a fine young man.

I have been blessed to be under the supervision of Dr Raja M A, MD, MRCP (UK) Medica Oncology who is my physisian from Apollo Speciality Hospitals based in Chennai and I have finished two rounds of chemotherapy with three more to go after which the doctor will evaluate if there is a necessity to remove the left breast entirely.

Since the cancer I have been diagnosed with is HER 2 NEU positive. HER2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) is one such gene that can play a role in the development of breast cancer. HER2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) is one such gene that can play a role in the development of breast cancer.

The HER2 gene makes HER2 proteins. HER2 proteins are receptors on breast cells. Normally, HER2 receptors help control how a healthy breast cell grows, divides, and repairs itself. But in about 25% of breast cancers, the HER2 gene doesn't work correctly and makes too many copies of itself (known as HER2 gene amplification). All these extra HER2 genes tell breast cells to make too many HER2 receptors (HER2 protein overexpression). This makes breast cells grow and divide in an uncontrolled way. Breast cancers with HER2 gene amplification or HER2 protein overexpression are called HER2-positive in the pathology report. HER2-positive breast cancers tend to grow faster and are more likely to spread and come back compared to HER2-negative breast cancers. But there are medicines specifically for HER2-positive breast cancers and I am under an intensive medical regime at the moment.

My husband is currently working very hard to cover our medical expenses however the treatment is extremely expensive. I am seeking your prayers for my recovery and any assistance you can provide financially that will go toward paying for my medical treatment so I can come out of this cancer victorious and live a long healthy life.

Hi everyone

Jessie finished her 10th injection of Hertztraz 440 on 13 September and has also completed an echo test that was required by her doctor.

The next injection is on 6th October and will be the 11th of 17 in total. She will also have her PET scan next month.

Please do continue to keep Jessie in your prayers and spread the word so we can raise the remaining funds required to see her through this treatment.

Thanks and much love
