The vivacious 23 year old mother of one young son, and a resident of Norwalk have been battling Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma for the past year, and now she is grasping for hope, needed funds and the hope that a new experimental treatment plan will help save her life.
Muro, who is a popular figure at the Norwalk Senior Citizen’s Center, also works as an employee for the City of Norwalk and she has been living recently in Tempe, Arizona with her mother Rosa undergoing a holistic treatment after failing to respond to several rounds of traditional chemo therapy from a Bellflower medical facility.
Myra, 23, born and raised in Norwalk, attended St. Linus Catholic School and Church, and graduated from St. Joseph High School in 2007. The former standout cheerleader at St. John Bosco High School, Muro was diagnosed with the wrenching disease of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2011 after she had suffered severe bouts of exhaustion, and tenderness in her upper breast bone.
After six rounds of chemo therapy, a total of 12 sessions, her doctors said that she had developed an inflammation, and on June 4 of this year, Myra was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma and it has now spread into her lungs and other areas.
“Don’t want to buy into the story that doctors tell you that you have no future and no hope. We need to fight this. Chemo didn’t work, now we are relying on God’s promises,” her mother told Los Cerritos Community Newspaper.
Myra is now receiving an advanced naturopathic treatment at the Nature Works Best Center in Tempe, Arizona. She is receiving high daily dosages of Vitamin C, Minerals, Amino Acids and other medicines.
“ It is amazing work, and we can already see positive results,” Rosa said. The two have been living in a one bedroom apartment near the treatment center and is expected to be there until later this coming fall.
But the treatment has taken a great financial toll. “I put my daughter in a car, and put all of our faith in God, and now the costs of the treatments are beginning to huge challenge,” Rosa said.
