Ashley's Medical Fund

At the beginning of the 2018, my best friend Ashley was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer--Adenocarcinoma. Since then, we have found out the cancer has spread and there is also Squamous Cell Carcinoma as well as severe dysplasia of her cervix. She has already had four surgeries since the start of 2018 and still needs a hysterectomy, which has a long recovery time. This has been devastating, considering that Ashley was one term away from graduating college.  Due to her treatments, she had to take a leave of absence while she prepares for what is to come next. Her willingness to accept help is a sign of strength. Cancer is isolating and debilitating. 
Ashley is not able to work because of her treatment schedule, surgeries, pain, and constant bleeding. The funds raised for this campaign will cover the $400/day treatments that aren’t covered by insurance, that she needs five days a week for eight weeks, copays, therapies, medications and supplements, and treatments. If we can surpass the goal, funds they will go to help with her cost of living, while she’s unable to work. It’s essential that once she starts treatments she be able to continue them without interruption, and she can’t afford to do them without this help! 
We know this is all hard to read, but it's much harder for her to go through - especially alone. With the compassion of others she will be able to make a full recovery. Please help, even if it's only 5 bucks. We want her to have the long successful life ahead that she deserves. 

Thank you,
Laura



The funds from the account will go directly to her partner and caregiver, Mark Dilson, who has set up an account in his name for Ashley's medical expenses.
