Help the Devasia Family

Cecily Devasia, aged 42 is a beautiful, precious and gentle wife and mother who radiates the love of Christ even in the midst of her suffering. Cecily is married to Stanly and they have 4 children here on earth, Ryan(14) Chris (12) Clare (10) and Marianne (2). As an ICU Nurse at Box Hill Hospital, Victoria, Australia, Cecily was the main breadwinner of the Devasia family.
Two years after moving to Australia, Cecily and Stanly were blessed with Marianne, their second daughter in Nov 2017.  While Cecily was still breastfeeding Marianne (18 months ago) she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Cecily underwent a mastectomy and was given the all-clear.

In July of 2019, Cecily wrote “All Praise and glory to him who strengthens me. I have finished 33 sessions of radiation therapy. Thank you for your prayers and support for being there when I need a lift whenever I felt weak”.  Cecily never gave up on hope. Early this year in 2020, at the beginning of lockdown, life took a sudden turn. Cecily underwent testing this time to learn that there was excessive fluid in her lungs and a growth on her ribs and required surgery again. From here she was continuously in and out of hospitals (Austin and Peter Mac). As cancer progressed, Oncologists confirmed that this was a rare form of cancer and that there was no known treatment for Cecily.

Under Palliative care at Peter Mac, Cecily continues to fight her battle. On the 15th of June, her children visited her for the first time at the hospital and learnt of Stage 4 cancer. With Stanly having left [for a short period] his job at the Austin to care for Cecily and the children, his friends and family (who are unable to fly to Australia due to COVID 19) have decided to set up this Go-fund-me-page in order to support the family and their needs, especially at this painful and difficult time. Please pray for the Devasia family and if possible consider donating to Devasia family. Stanley & Cecily are our close family friends and we have known each other for more than 15 years. I've known them since 2005 when I was living in the UK. They are a beautiful loving family who treasured young people. Later in 2008 I got married and moved to Australia. It was a blessing for us when Stanly and Cecily also migrated to Australia in 2015 and ended up living 5 minutes away from us. Our families, especially the children have become very close over the years. Cecily will be dearly missed. -Ajesh and Mayrose Abraham
