(NOTE : see updates below )Sonya Wainscott--wife to Dave, and mother to Tim and Sara--was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer, which has spread significantly to lungs and bones.
Standard chemotherapy in cases like hers allows the patient to live an average of 19 months. But the Wainscotts are fortunate to live in the very city in which a highly-respected integrative cancer doctor maintains a clinic. Dr. M.A. Nezami , with background as surgeon and oncologist, has found great success with targeted and epigenetic therapies that combine traditional and integrative approaches.
Renowned cancer clinics such as M.D. Anderson have sent patients to Dr. Nezami. Nezami draws from much experience when he says he is very optimistic about Sonya’s survival far beyond projections. With Dr. Nezami as head of Sonya’s healing team, the family is convinced this is the best option. This also means that insurance helps with some costs, but not most. Thus therapy is very expensive, averaging over $1,000 dollars a day. Prescriptions are very targeted, and are also very expensive. The Wainscotts have already borrowed large amounts of money from their families. They now humbly reach out to ask for your prayers and financial assistance.
Sonya will be blogging her journey at this link.
