Ayanna is one of the world's most beautiful and strong 19 year olds I've ever met. Just 2 weeks after turning 19, she has been diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer. Did I mention, she's only 19 years old?

She's been working extremely hard at her Grandfather's Dental office full time to be able pay for her college courses on her own. With Ayanna being only 19, and still living at home, any help the family can get is beyond appreciated. Ayanna also has baby brothers that are 5 and 6 year old.

A note from me (Jen)..
Ayanna's Mom, Deanne has been my best friend since High School. Deanne is my Son's Godmother. Deanne is one tough cookie, and not much can break her. But, this caused her to break. I was at the hospital when Ayanna was born. She's like a niece to me. I haven't cried as much Deanne and Ayanna have. But, I've cried a lot.

With tears in my eyes, I beg for your help for Ayanna, Deanne, Patrick, and family.

Update from Deanne:

Today we had a visit to the oncologist. Unfortunately, the cancer is also in the lymph nodes.

If it wasn’t bad enough that at the age of 19 Ayanna will need a reconstructive double mastectomy, she now will also need chemotherapy. Until the MRI and PET scan is taken, that will determine if she will have chemo before or after surgery. We will find out next week.

Luckily, we will go through this process together and our heads will be shaved at the same time and wigs will be made for the intermittent times. I told Ayanna that it was time for a change anyway and to trust me when I say, I will look like no rockstar with my new do.... but, it’ll be great and I am ready when she is!

Ayanna took it very hard, she does not want to lose her hair, and cried pretty hard... luckily, we know ALOT of people who absolutely love makeup and hair. She is beautiful with or without it!

Next is the MRI/PET scan, genetic testing, meeting with the plastic surgeon and also the fertility doctor to preserve her eggs... that will be a conversation at a later date.

Today wasn’t a full rainy day, but it definitely could have been filled with a little more sunshine!

Every share of the GoFundMe account matters, Every kind words matters, every donation matters, if I can pull in a favors, it would be right now!

Please get the word out!

Fuck Cancer
