Get Tyrayah Home

My name is Tyrayah and I am 15 years old and I wish I was thriving like every other 15 year old.  I was diagnosed with T cell lymphoblastic lymphoma on August 1st 2019 at 10:26am.  My mom (aka my best friend) and I were terrified not knowing where this road was going to lead us.  We became hopeful once the doctors told us it was curable.  Well, it wasn’t so curable.  All of the rare and normal side effects that could happen from the chemotherapy and multiple other treatments I endured all happened.  Why me?  After losing my gorgeous hair, suffering from nausea and vomiting day after day, being poked at multiple times a week, I didn’t think anything worse could happen.  I was wrong.  On May 4th, 2020 I became vegetable from my neck down.  I had to be turned every 2 hours, had a feeding tube down my nose all because I couldn’t do any of this on my own.  Right before June started I started to have feeling and movement back in my arms.  I worked very hard with Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy to get to where I am today.  Today I have the majority of my movement and sensations back, but am still unable to walk.  I have been in the hospital since my diagnosis last August with the only reason being my mom is unable to afford a place for us all on her own.  We need your help to raise the final amounts of money for my amazing, selfless and beautiful mom to buy a place for us to live!  I am more than ready to get  home and resume living my semi-normal life NOT IN THE HOSPITAL! Thank you to everyone in advance! #CANCERSUCKS
