Team Aliya Leukemia Fund

$32,476 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 436 people in 14 months
My precious, beautiful, angelic 7-year-old daughter was diagnosed with leukemia two weeks before Christmas 2016. Aliya has spent her entire life in Porter Ranch, California, and may have been exposed to unsafe benzene levels during the 2015-16 Porter Ranch gas leak. Our family is devastated not only by this terrifying diagnosis, but by the financial hardship of fighting for her life. My husband and I are both taking time off from work to care for our daughter full-time. I created this fund at the urging of friends and family members who said they wanted to help. We are grateful for whatever contribution you are moved to make. Thank you for your kindness, gifts and prayers.

Thank you, once more, to everyone who donated to my family's personal campaign. Thank goodness, Aliya has responded well to treatment. We are done with chemo and just checking in regularly to make sure there is no relapse. In the meantime, we have changed our fundraising focus to the larger problem of cancer research in general. It is our fondest wish that no other family will ever have to face the horror we have endured over the past year. Toward that end, my middle daughter, Amina, is running for 2018 Los Angeles Student of the Year. That's a contest for high school students to see who can raise the most money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. All donations are greatly appreciated and tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS research but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services.

Make sure to get her to City of Hope if they take kids. I have heard great things and seen a miracle done on my friend (stage 4 lymphoma) with them and the grace of God. I am so sorry to hear this. My daughter is 7 years as well so this was painful to hear. You all are in our prayers. Put God first and everything else will fall into place.
