My name is Mia (Chen). I have been in Australia for 2 years on a working holiday visa. Last month I got a cold, I felt really sick so I went to the doctor. He couldn't explain what was happening with my body. After 3 weeks I got worse, so I came to Brisbane for more tests.
The medical staff discovered that I have advanced lung cancer Stage 3 (it is already spread in my others organs). I am getting worse and worse with everyday that passes.
I am 30 years old, I don’t even smoke!
You could ask why do i not go home? Trust me, this was the first thing I wanted to but the answer was: You could die on the plane. I cannot go home to be with my family now.
I have insurance but it doesn't cover all the treatments I need and my savings are not enough to afford the total of the costs. That is why I am asking for your help, I know the last year has been hard for everyone but any cents will really help me.
Thank you so much.
PS: I am Camila (I am from Chile but I am in Australia) I’m Mia’s friend and I am managing this account but I want to let you know that I am in contact with Mia every day, & all the money we will collect is going directly to Mia to pay for the hospital, medical tests, medicine, treatment & everything she could need during & after her stay in the hospital. She is receiving treatment now and feeling a little bit better every day. She is so positive that she will be recovering soon.
She wants to say thank you to all of the people helping her, she is really feeling your support. I pass her every message that you send. Thank you again.
