Friends and Family, As you all may know, our girl was diagnosed with Acutre Myeloid Leukemia on August 22nd. She has completed her first round round of chemotherapy and has three more to go through year end. Each round consists of 23hrs/day and 7 straight days. It's wearing to say the least and the typical effects of chemo will take a toll on Ashlyn. So many of you have reached out on how to help. Words can't express how supported that makes us feel and we appreciate your efforts. Since flowers nor her favorite snacks are acceptable at the moment (strict diet), we have decided to create this account to help get her what she needs to stay comfortable and heal during this time. We plan to use these funds in a variety of ways and will keep you posted on your support. As you all know Ashlyn loves her job as a Real Estate Agent but she will not be able to do too much over the next few months. Her company and boss are being amazingly supportive but she is still on 100% commission which obviously is going to become a huge burden over time. We aim to use money raised to help through these times until she is back up to full strength. These are just a few of the essential items we plan on purchasing with your support....
- A functioning laptop (Ashlyn's laptop is ancient...aka harldy works and the weight of a toddler). With hours in bed, she is in need of a good screen to watch movies and stay entertained. - Air purifier for the bedroom at apartment. Hopefully she will be able to leave the hospital in 3-4 weeks. -Fresh Fruit and Veggies. Doha is extremely proud of their fruit and price it accordingingly. Fruits and veggies are highly encouraged to maintain a healthy diet to fight cancer -Clothes. Nothing says Wedding Diet like Cancer :-/ .... Our girl will be dropping lbs and will need clothes that fit her -IF Ashlyn looses her hair, we will need to help purchase wigs, hats, etc.
We very much appreciate your thoughts, prayers and concerns. Ashlyn loves hearing from you all and is constantly thankful for each and everyone during this time. If you feel inclined to help, please donate to this Fund to help her Kick Cancer's Ass! $5, $10, $20, etc. Whatever you are comfortable with, every penny is much appreciated.
We will keep you posted on our purchases for her and will post pics of her enjoying your gifts.
