Ilyasha's Cancer Medical Expenses

On Thursday, August 17th, 2017, 24 year old Ilyasha Hosea was diagnosed with stage 3 triple negative Invasive Ductal Carcinoma breast cancer. Receiving
a diagnosis of breast cancer at such a young age is not something we ever expected, especially after God has blessed her with her recent marriage, beautiful home and overall new beginning with her husband, Kevin in Houston, Texas.

In a couple weeks Ilyasha will begin the Chemotherapy process at the #1 Cancer Research Center in the world, MD Anderson. MD Anderson is already taking great care of her and we know they will treat her with the best care possible.

Unfortunately, due to the effects of her treatment and how her body will react, she would have to reduce her work time and possibly stop working until treatments are completed depending how the tumor responds to chemotherapy. Chemotherapy and radiation take a huge toll on your body and ability to function daily. This reduction in income, in addition to the enormous medical costs from chemo and additional prescription drugs, has already created a serious financial strain.

GoFundMe gives us the opportunity to extend love and assistance to Ilyasha and her family during this tough time in their lives. Our goal is to raise $15,000 or more to uplift Ilyasha so she can focus on staying strong through her treatment rather than being overwhelmed with stress from medical bills and more. Any amount of giving is deeply appreciated and helpful. We are thankful for any contribution and will provide updates as they come later.
