UPDATE: Katelyn has passed & this fund is now to help with remaining medical bills, living expenses for her family and most importantly her funeral cost.
My name is Amber and I'm here to tell ou about Joana (Jo). Jo became a friend of my moms back in 2006/2007 and helped my mother in a time of need (which I am forever greatful for) and has been a good friend of hers ever since. I am now trying to help her in a time of need. She is a single mom of four young children: Genesis (10), Katelyn (5), Joseph (1), & Luna (1 month). Very recently, she found out her young daughter Katelyn has stage 4 Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma brain cancer.
Having just recently moved into a new home with no stove or fridgerator, giving birth to her fourth child just weeks ago, being a single mother to these babies and now to find out her baby girl has stage 4 brain cancer. I can't even imaine what she is going through.
Her daughter Katelyn is currently being treated at the Children's Hosiptol in Los Angeles and will be undegoing chemotheropy. With this being a newer found cancer, their isn't a lot of treatment and research information on it. As a single mother with four children and limited income and state healthcare, she could use ALL of the help and prayers she can get. Any money donated will go straight to Katelyn's medical treatments at the children's hospital and to helping her mother care for her other children and keeping a roof over their head. Thank you everyone for your time, support, prayers, and love!
