More Info

Hi My name is Kandee, I am a grad student at California State University SanBeranrdino in California. I am working on a Master in Biology and planning to persue a PhD in Biology in order to teach. I am known as the seed girl or the plant girl on Campus. I write inspirational poetry. I love the mountains, squirrells and wildlife conservation.

I was feeling sick for awhile, for what i thought was galstones and i had a feeling that something was wrong. Long story short after several ER visits an internal medicine doctor showed up at my bedside and asked, Does Cancer run in your Family? He told me there was a Mass in my liver and in my abdomen and he beleived was a rare form of Cancer.

I was diagnosed in August of 2012 with a rare form of cancer called neuroendcrine cancer also called Carcinoid cancer. This cancer is so rare that doctors may never see a case of it during their career time, and they usually read about it in textbooks. My doctor was so shocked as she told me, usually they dont find this until its too late, having no knowledge of how to treat me, she sent me to a number of doctors who had a little but were not specialist so, so the prospects were not looking hopefull until i connected with a support network online that lead me to Cedar Sainai

I thought, "i am not giving up" so i investigated and found out the top US doctor whos soul focus is this cancer. My spirit became raised and i knew that i had a fighting chance. He told me although there is no cure and i will always have recieve treatment, the goal is to give you a long life with a good quality of life. This would allow me to keep doing what i am doing. I finally had a team of doctors.  However, my doctor is going to leaving Cedars going to lexington Kentucky where he will be the director of the neuroendcrine cancer center.

In order to continue recieving the best care for me and continue with a team of doctors that will give the best options i will need to travel to Kentucky semi annually to see him and get updated evaluations and treatments. I will under the care of his collegues here but he will be following my care. 

I need your help to get there.... I believe in life and love life
