Help Williams family with medical expenses

Stars forever shine, releasing energy to its surroundings, and Tanisha Star Williams, exemplified it all. Tanisha was born on January 16, 1996, with her identical twin sister, Iesha Starr Williams. From her loving parents, Edward Williams Jr., and Ernestine Wilkerson-Williams, a Star indeed was in the making. Tanisha blossomed into a lover of music and sports. Nas, being one of her most favorites, was a destination for Tanisha’s playlist day by day. Tanisha longed to one day work with the NFL. Her aspirations for sports connected with her studies when she decided to attend and graduate from North Carolina Wesleyan College, and attain a BS in Organizational Communication with a concentration in sports. December 14, 2019, marked an unprecedented moment for Tanisha as she became surprisingly ill, and was diagnosed with Acute Myloid Leukemia (AML) and FLT3. Tanisha fought a vigorous battle with a valiant spirit that inspired many. Her tenacity and sarcastic wit of humor attracted individuals from all walks of life. Alongside Tanisha, was her family that cheered on her every step, until January 7, 2021, when the Heavenly Kingdom called onto her beautiful soul to live in enteral peace. Tanisha is survived by her mother, father, sisters, brother, extended family, and an incredible list of loving friends who were touched by her courageous character. As her family prepares her homecoming, we ask that you join us in support during these strenuous times as expenses can become unbearable. Tanisha has shined within the hearts of whom she has encountered, and we thank you all for recognizing her genuine spirit as we celebrate her life. Any contribution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your support, and God bless!
