Local Mom Of 6 Diagnosed With Stage 4 Breast Cancer Needs Your Help
Racheal Meche Graham was recently diagnosed with stage 4 ductal cell carcinoma breast cancer. Facing numerous treatments and procedures with no medical insurance, a GoFundme has been setup to help with mounting medical costs.
Racheal is a wife and mother of three, a 16-year-old daughter, 10-year-old son, and an 11-month-old baby girl as well as a stepmother to three teenage girls.
Weeks ago Racheal, a native of Opelousas, received her devastating diagnosis. Once the cancer developed it attacked very aggressively. In fact, so fast and aggressively she hadn't noticed anything wrong until she started having problems breastfeeding her newborn daughter.
That's when she discovered a lump in her breast.
According to the GoFundme page that has been set up, when Racheal initially went to have the mass evaluated, doctors could not definitively confirm a diagnosis. A mammogram also showed nothing. Another appointment was then made for an ultrasound and biopsy.
A few weeks later the biopsy results came in confirming she had ductal cell carcinoma. Further testing confirmed her cancer had progressed to stage 4, meaning it had spread throughout her body.
