To Whom This May Concern,
My name is Shekia Lynch, the wife of James Lynch Sr. We are the proud parents of seven beautiful
children, who we are raising in Orlando, Florida. I am writing this correspondence on behalf of our five-
year-old daughter Jazz'myne Lynch. As I pen this open letter, my heart is broken, and my spirit is shaken.
In the Spring of 2018, Doctors at Nemours Children’s Hospital, discovered a small mass on the left side
of our daughter’s brain. The initial assessments by Doctors, led us to believe she had esotropia after
visible changes in the location of the pupil in her eye. After additional test such as MRI's and a CT Scan, it
was confirmed that our baby had a brain tumor. As we received further consultation with her doctor, he
informed us that Jazz'myne had a brainstem tumor, which was also Cancerous. Upon hearing the
diagnosis from the doctors at Nemours Children’s Hospital, our family was devastated, our faith fragile,
as our lives would change forever. I remember vividly sharing the news with our children about her
diagnosis and they couldn't stop crying or asking questions, which I nor my husband James couldn’t
answer definitively. Our unwavering faith in God is being tested in a way, that we have never
experienced before as a family. We all rally around Jazz'myne to provide her the love and support she
needs day to day. But that doesn't change the pain, tears and discomfort our child experiences with
each weekly chemotherapy treatment or her inquisitive nature, that leads to questions about the port
placed under her skin. If you knew our princess, you would know that she has a bigger than life bubbly
personality and persona. Jazz'myne is an old soul, ahead of her time, that always has a smile on her face,
as she finds a way to put a smile on yours. These days the smiles seem few and far in between, as we
adjust to new norms but it's hard and sometimes unbearable. I was employed through a temp agency
but due to our daughter’s health, it's been challenging financially because of having to accommodate
her health needs. We are vulnerable and reaching out to you today, in hopes that you would be gracious
and compassionate in supporting Jazz’myne and her go fund me campaign. Please help us by joining the
fight, as we fight for Jazz'myne. 20% will go towards keeping a smile on her face and 80% will go towards her unforeseen medical bills.
