Laila's Battle Against Cancer!
On August 16th, 2016 Laila Ireland had a brain seizure after complaining of seeing colors/flashing lights in her vision. Paramedics arrived and took her straight into the emergency department where a CT scan was performed and a large mass was discovered in the back of her brain. After being kept in ICU overnight an MRI scan was performed the following morning which confirmed the large tumor, brain swelling, and a brain aneurysm. That afternoon a CAT scan was also performed where a large mass was discovered in her right lung. Following a biopsy of the lung, the results showed stage 4 lung cancer which had spread to the brain. Laila is scheduled to undergo brain surgery on September 1st, 2016, followed by radiotherapy and/or other cancer treatments.
This tragic turn of events unfolded two days before her son Seth's 21 st birthday. Seth lives at home and has cerebral palsy, he is permanently disabled and in need of full-time care. Laila is also raising a 13-year-old daughter with her husband Brian.
All prayers and financial support would be greatly appreciated in this time of devastation and stress for the family, this page was set up by her husband Brian who, in addition to being the full-time carer for their son Seth, works but has taken time off to care for his wife and family due to the physical and emotional difficulties faced.
All money raised would go towards Laila's medical care, expenses, transportation, long time care of her son and daughter as well as mounting bills during this time of financial uncertainty
Big Kisses and thank you everyone for your continues support and prayers! God Bless!
Isaiah 53:5 (NKJV)
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was [bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
