Faith for Aubrey

32152598_1541117425793836_r.jpegThis GoFund me is for Aubrey Ven, the 4-year-old daughter of Omar and Katty Ven. 

 Aubrey is a beautiful 4-year-old daughter who was diagnosed with ALL acute lymphocytic leukemia.  
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia(ALL) is a type of life threatening blood cancer.  Leukemia cells usually invade the blood fairly quickly. Any type of early blood-forming cell of the bone marrow can turn into a leukemia cell.Childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a type of cancer in which the bone marrow makes too many immature lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell).

"Your child has leukemia." These are by far the hardest and most painful words  parents can hear.
 However, the most important thing has been staying strong and  helping her feel better through her chemotherapy process. Chemotherapy is composed of 4 phases: induction, consolidation, intensification and maintenance a total of 2- 3 year process.  

Everything happened rapidly - chemotherapy began within 2 days of her diagnoses.  She was hospitalized on a Friday and by Monday morning underwent 2 surgeries to receive a spinal tap, and bone narrow biopsy.  For her parents, news began to sink in  within days and came to realized the world will not stop, somehow her parents had to pull strength and still take care of work, and household related bills  because bills and rent accumulate. As important as money is to their family support, their daughter's health is the main priority.
Her parents will be by her side through this scary and intense journey with positivity in their hearts and mind. Unfortunately,  due to the intense chemotherapy taking place in the second phase: consolidation which is where her immune system would be very fragile along with constant doctor visits to receive spinal fluid  and spinal taps to prevent the growth of leukemia cells in the central nervous system; her mother will be taking off from work to attend to her baby girl with no pay and medical insurance will end after 3 months.
The financial burden of bills and medical insurance has them worried. This fund is to help support their family during these intense months of treatment and help them worry less about household expenses  and the hospital bills.  Anything would help them and would be greatly appreciated. They are more than grateful for your support and kind hearted contributions. 

Aubrey's name is a symbol of who she has shown to be before & during chemotherapy -
Amazing, Unique, Brave, Resilient, Eager, and Young @ heart.
