Testimonies of our heroes
“My most sincere thanks to the entire Radiotherapy team for everything they did for me. They really change the lives of many people, including mine, they supported me to recover my tranquility, to be strong and to fight until I could no longer and convince myself that I had hope to beat cancer and get ahead. Fortunately I have succeeded and I am happy.“
I am Onelia Palma and I had a mastectomy because I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I had chemotherapy and I ended up with radiotherapy.
It all started when I felt a lump in my right breast and after consulting with the doctor, we thought it was just an abscess and then when it didn’t disappear, that’s when we said … “We need to do a biopsy”, and the rest is history. I have two children and because of that, everything happened to me. What if this is so big that I can’t get over it? I have always been a positive person, but I think that when I thought about my children, I was very scared, so I was very emotional until I gathered my thoughts, calmed down and said … “Whatever it is, I have to beat it.”
The three main doctors that I have worked with have been amazing, I feel that we connected and I think that helped me a lot, because they have been very attentive to me. Having been treated here has been one of the best things for me, so I highly recommend them. But yes, stay positive and be part of this family, because that is what they made me feel while in the clinic. I am so relieved, so happy to be cancer free and I will do everything I can to keep it up.
I was driving in February of last year, and I started having kidney pain. I was always quite enduring for pain, so I just breathed and said … It will go away, and I stayed that way for a month until I finally got a fever and attended a doctor. in Mexico they do an operation to see the condition and see what was happening.
At the time when they told me it was cancer, I was very calm, I took it well and from there they performed a bone marrow study, they scraped a bone from my hip … Quite painful. There it was, it was stage 3, at that time if I felt ugly and you are more concerned about what the people you love will feel than what you are going through…
When I started attending Oncology, the whole team makes you feel calm, they make you feel like a family … They were months where the treatment worked, accompanied by attitude, you can sink into a hole, stay there to cry and suffer and ask yourself … Why that I? Why did it happen to me? And no, it’s for what?
“Today I feel excited, happy, grateful.” It had been a year of bad news, one after the other, today I am happy, grateful to God and to the whole team.
When I told my family that I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, it was hard for them. I have two children, ages 7 and 13, the thirteen-year-old found it more difficult, because he believed that if you had cancer you would die … That’s what he thought and I had to explain that this didn’t work. My mom didn’t take it very well, she was devastated. My husband took it badly, but he has supported me 100% a lot. My entire family has been supportive and that has helped me, but everyone in my family was sad, but after all they took it step by step.
When I got here, I felt like I was at home, I didn’t feel strange, they were welcoming, friendly. With the treatment and the team I knew they were experts in cancer treatment and their team, so I decided to do my treatment here. The doctors explained everything to me for each treatment they gave me, they explained what I was taking, what I should expect and what I should do. I feel that we are friends because when I arrive it is like “Hello Florence, how are you?”, I felt at home, they treated me with respect and kindness. That was very important because if it had not been so, I would have felt that I only came to my treatment and back, I would not have felt that motivation and the doctors helped me to maintain my motivation, they joked with me as if everything was fine… They kept me motivated .
Above all the treatment here is first class, I have never experienced such a warm welcome, it is a place you can call home, even if you are far from your country.
Just keep your head up, think positive. I always said “You are going to be a fighter and you will be a survivor” that always kept me smiling and I was not discouraged and as I always said to myself “I am going to defeat this cancer”.
