Fighting Stage 4 Leiomyosarcoma one day at a time

Hello Everyone,

Thank You for visiting, I initially started this blog to keep family and close friends updated on our journey to Houston Texas, to visit with Dr. Burzynski, a world renowned doctor, who specializes in cancer.

A year and a half ago, MB was diagnosed with stage 4 Uterine Leiomyosarcoma and given no more than a year to live.

MB is only 50, she hasn't seen any of her kids get married or have babies. She still has a thirst for life, three kids and a Husband who absolutely adores her. My sister is 23 and youngest brother only 17. We still need our Mama Bear. If you are, or were, blessed enough to have an MB like mine, who has always loved you unconditionally and supported you, you will know how we feel. Nothing can replace a mother's love. Nothing.

Because MB's cancer is very aggressive, we had no time to waste. The very same day the doctor told us to prepare for hospice, MB and I said, "Fu*k That!", Hospice is a dirty word at our house.We started applying to the Burzynski Clinic as soon as we got home from the doctors appointmet, after 3 days of collecting medical records and sending faxes we were finally accepted.We never took time to think, we just acted. No more than a week and half after we were told to go home and prepare for death, we were on a plane headed to Houston TX in search of life and a second chance. We've left California and our family during Thanksgiving.

Even though the treatment is crazy expensive and we are away from home during the holidays, this is still the best decision we ever made. Sometimes you have to bet big to win big!

We aren't the Kardashians, we are just the Vargas' and we are going through the "realest" hardest battle of our lives...This is our story....If you'd like to start reading from the very beginning click on November, on the lower right hand side of the page and the very first post is the "Adventure Begins"

All I want for Christmas is YOU!

We were eachothers Christmas Presents!...When you have your family you have it all!~
Christmas Eve was Amazing, family and friends came to the house with a TON of food and Love. I could not have asked for a more joy filled day. In usual Diva fashion, I over did it with the outfit, my cousin's said it was too much but that only I could pull it off. I wowed the crowd with my Boobs, I mean red dress lol.

MB felt good and sat with the family for a long time. Everyone was on their best behavior and a ton of pictures were taken. My cousin brought over his new girlfriend and I was very happy that he found someone to love.

I could tell that some people were thinking that maybe it was the LAST Christmas Eve with MB. I tell those people to have more faith and recognize that MB is a fighter and that she has many more Christmases ahead of her. MB is the original Diva and that lady has more fight in her than ALI on steroids.

Traduccion al español:
La víspera de Navidad de la familia fue increíble, y los amigos llegaron a la casa con un montón de comida y el amor. No podría haber pedido un día lleno de alegría más. Como es habitual soy la diva de la moda, mi primo dijo que era demasiado, pero que sólo yo podía llevarlo a cabo. Me asombró a la multitud con mis tetas, me refiero a jajajaja al vestido rojo.

MB se sentía bien y se sentó con la familia durante mucho tiempo. Todo el mundo estaba en su mejor comportamiento y un montón de fotos fueron tomadas. Mi primo trajo a su nueva novia y yo estaba muy contento de que se encontró con alguien a quien amar.

Me di cuenta de que algunas personas pensaban que tal vez fue la última Nochebuena con MB. Le digo a las personas que hay que tener más fe y reconocer que MB es un luchador y que tiene muchas navidades más delante de ella. MB es la Diva original y esa señora tiene más lucha en la que el ALI en los esteroides.
