A close family member of mine has unfortunately developed leukemia.

The road to recovery will be a long one for Sylvia, and that is why I am creating this page for her. She will need a lot of medical attention, and unfortunately her insurance doesn't cover all the medical expenses. There is no universal health care in America of course. Now with the positive diagnosis of Leukemia, I wanted to show her that the world still does care and she is not alone in the fight. One way we can show her we care is by donating and saying our prayers that all this will come to past and she will be a survivor and a Testimony for all to see Gods miracles on earth.

She is pictured on the left on her wedding day holding her first born Josiah. If anyone would like to donate and help Sylvia fight and hopefully recover, it would be greatly appreciated. Over the next couple weeks she will be scheduled to be undergoing chemotherapy, radiation,blood transfusions and various treatments to fight the leukemia and enduring all of the unpleasant side effects that come along with that.

NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL! $1 or $10 or $1000. Every little bit helps. There is an anonymous option to hide your identity if you wish. I honestly don't know what it cost to treat leukemia. I would imagine it cost upwards of $100,000+ USD

If the amount we raise is over what we need, I will try my best to return the money back or donate the remaining funds to the Leukemia Research Foundation @ http://www.allbloodcancers.org/ and help find a cure.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or if there are other things that you may be able to do to help, let me know.

please help save a life and donate generously.

Thank you.

This picture was taken the day I found out she was diagnosed and she is the most positive loving women I know. If anyone can fight its this girl right here.
