My name Julia Pylayev and as you guys all know Ira was the caregiver of not just my children at BAMBI, but most of Philadelphia community’s children. She has a heart of of gold,  and always willing to help anyone in need. As Ira’s friend during this tough time I was informed her daughter Leah was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. As a mother, friend, and member of the community I was heart broken to hear this news. Leah is a mother of two beautiful children, working, married to a caring husband, a daughter, and beautiful soul. She will now have to undergo many procedures, and tests to get the proper care and fight. This is going to be a very difficult time for Leah as well as her family, with the help of everyone we can make this situation easier and help the family through support, love, and financial help. As we all know cancer treatment is very expensive, and can take a toll on the family, with this being said any amount is greatly appreciated. Let’s all come together and help Leah and her beautiful family during this difficult time.
