Our wonderful math teacher, Elif Baskaya, has worked hard to personalize math for us. She has taught 6th-12th grade for us, juggling different levels and paces through her hard work. At the start of October, she went to the ER with bad stomach pain. The tumor found turned out to be advanced colon cancer that had spread to the liver. Her highest chance of survival is at MSYKK in NY because they do hai pump that can help unresectable liver metastasis resectable. Our school only has 21 students, but we want to raise $15,000 for this wonderful teacher. Her firefighter husband and eight-year-old daughter and all of us want Elif to get healthy again.

Elif has a new wig AND see numbers that are dropping, which means her tumors are responding to the chemo...hooray!

Saturday she flies to NY for a scan. If the results are healthy, surgery can be scheduled. Please keep Elif's ongoing recovery in your prayers! Thanks

Elif is in New York in good spirits. She is impressed by the specialist, who she calls a "genius." After a few more rounds of chemo the specialist will hopefully perform surgery for a hai pump for the liver and a colonostomy reversal. Here's to Elif's health and BIG success in NY!

Elif is in the hospital with a 102 fever, BUT there is no infection. So the doctors think it is a reaction to the blood transfusion. This means Elif can have her second chemo session Monday. After the third, she can go to the New York specialist. Altinay is getting ready to be in the Nutcracker and Grandma is here from Turkey to watch. Your prayers are definitely helping...thank you!
