My name is Vinia. I was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma September 2017. I only have one kidney left after having had my other kidney removed in 2015. When the cancer recurred they also found metastases to my right sacrum and spine involving the thoracic and lower lumber spine. At that time I was given 9 to 10 months to live. I have been going through clinic trials since that time. It seems as though my commitment to my family gives me motivation. I have four children and a husband who needs me.
However I am also very sad because my father in the Philippines was found passed out and rushed to the hospital. I have been told that he has a heart problem. I badly need to see my father, to hold him, and tell him I love him. I will also be relieved to see with my own eyes how my father is doing.  This will also help me with the continuing to face my own cancer and continue to fight this battle. It is important for me to tell him that I really love him and he is important to me.
