For Alissia LOMA LINDA, CA
Hello, this is a donation page for Alissia, my little girl with a big heart. She is incredibly strong, smart, beautiful, and never stops smiling no matter what. Alissia was unfortunately diagnosed with Pineoblastoma at the age of two and a half. It has been three years since she's been diagnosed. Alissia is now six, and the three years have been very rough for her, the rest of the family, and I. She's been battling this very aggressive form of brain cancer with the help of her wonderful nurses, doctors, and surgeons. She also has the support of her family and friends keeping her happy and alive. Saying that the treatments she has gone through has been tough, is an understatement. She has had the strongest Chemotherapy administered, along with six week's of proton radiation, and three bone marrow transplants. She also went through a year of physical therapy, and two corrective eye surgeries. Alissia has stayed strong through her treatments. She has made great progress until recently when returning from a Make-a-Wish trip to Disneyland with her family she became ill. We the took her to get her CT scan then an MRI only to receive the very upsetting news we had hoped that we would never get to hear ever again. That Alissia's cancer has relapsed and has also spread to her spine. We got this news a little less than a week ago. The treatment for this will be enduring more chemo. Surgeries and radiation are out of the question this time around. Hearing all of this terrible news, Alissia's beautiful smile has helped, and reminded us all of what is truly important during this devastating time, her happiness. We, her family, would like to do everything to keep her happy in every single way that we can. This is where we also need your help, the medical and living expenses are piling up for her mom and I and have been since it all began. We have lost jobs, and homes during this hard time. Every donation sent will be appreciated greatly,and no amount of Thank You's could begin to show our gratitude for you helping us out. Thank you all from the parents Chris and Martha, all of her family, and most of all from Alissia.

The goal has been set to $20,000 but realistically, as much as possible is required. This donation page will remain open after the set goal to provide much needed help. Any and all size donations are appreciated. It all helps, Thank you.
