My daughter, Ashleigh Massey, is a single mother of two who is currently in RN nursing school. She previously received her LPN from the same school. She also works part time at a nursing home as an LPN. She is in debt for student loans and will finish RN school next spring, but owes the school over $19,000 because she has exhausted all loan assistance and grants. As background, in 2010, Ashleigh's then 5-year old daughter, Destinee, was diagnosed with a very rare brain tumor (called ATRT), the same week that Ashleigh and her husband separated. At the time, Ashleigh was 3 months pregnant with her youngest daughter, Sarinitee. Destinee required major surgery to remove the tumor, stem cell extraction, 6 weeks of radiation and 4 chemo treatments w/stem cell replacements. Ashleigh had the baby while we were in the hospital with Destinee and the baby was allowed to be with us in the room, but couldn't leave, which meant that someone had to be in the room 24 hours a day. I lost my work contract because of this and had to go on disability. Destinee is in remission now thanks to good medical treatment, but this whole process inspired Ashleigh to be a nurse. She needs help financially getting through this next year and finalize her RN. I watch the kids while she goes to school and work. I am a single mother too. Thank you in advance for your donation, any help would be greatly appreciated!
