As Salaam Alaikum
(Peace Be Unto You)
My name is Sister Mahalieka Muhammad. I pray you and your family are well. Thank you for taking time to see what this campaign is all about. I am a mother, daughter, sister, auntie, servant, and friends to many. I serve as the Director of From Girl II Goddess (G2G) Mentoring Program and Your Community Events, LLC. My passion is teaching and training girls 11-17 and women.
We partner with other women and organizations and are committed to saving as many women and girls from self destructive and distorted thinking patterns which lead to destructive behavior and a poor quality of life. My vision is for Black women and girls and women in general is to take better care of themselves FIRST, then others.
Three months ago during routine tests for something else, a radiologist found a 3 cm renal mass on my left kidney during an MRI. When the office who requested the test got the report, they referred me back to my family practice doctor. That doctor referred me to a nephrologist, but learned I needed to see an urologist. How a trained physician made this error, escapes me today. I made the appointment and was scheduled for a CT scan, which confirmed a 3 x 3.2 cm mass and was scheduled for a biopsy.
The biopsy came back positive for Eosinophilic renal neoplasm, favor chromophobe renal cell carcinoma (RCC), Stage T1, N0, M0 (see below). There are several treatment options: 1) Holistic; 2) Partial Nephrectomy 3) Cryotherapy (freezing tumor) and 4) Radical Nephrectomy (removal of one or both kidneys). This was/is an ABSOLUTE and COMPLETE SHOCK to me and to be honest I do not claim or accept their diagnosis and still don’t, meaning I will not allow cancer, if this is true, to defeat me. I cannot waste any time because I don't know how fast this grew or will grow.
Cancer is a MURDERER and an enemy in our body and needs to be destroyed before it destroys us. It is a usurper and an agent provocateur. SO I AM ACTING IMMEDIATELY to treat it and to rid my body of this DIS-EASE. Now here’s how I’ll need your help.
(The red pointing at the dark shaded circle is the cancer.)
Don't Give until it hurts, GIVE UNTIL IT HELPS. I am asking you to make a donation to help me MOVE THIS MOUNTAIN OUT OF MY LIFE. I do a lot of community service and host events throughout the year to help me sustain myself. This year however has been a great trial for me. I had to cancel a major event which would have funded a few other projects later in the year. It set me back severely and now I know why. God wanted my complete attention on my health. God certainly has a sense of humor. Funny, not funny. LOL!
G2G's work largely provides mentoring and one-on-one services with at risk youth (girls) and their parents, specifically mothers and the relationship she has with her daughter. We also work with fathers to help build their relationships with their daughters as well. Most our services are free because of the support we get when hosting workshops, so we can provide communtiy service and resources.
If you know me, you know I will “tighten my belt before I beg for help” (in my JayZ voice). Well I’m not begging. I am humbling asking for your assistance. Smile. Will you help me? I'm not asking for much, just enough to secure me while I am convalescent, so I can get back to work. Your gift will allow me to:
1. Provide for my basic needs during treatment.
2. Purchasing organic foods and products, holistic herbs or medicine.
3. GET A GYM MEMBERSHIP or Personal Trainer (I'm so weak in this area)
4. Possibly travel to obtain the best care and more.
TAKE ACTION: Again I am asking you to please make a donation and share/tag a minimum of 10 of your closest friends who support and love you and ask them to tag a minimum of 10 of their closest friends who love and support them. This will help me reach the goal.
This is first day of the rest of my life and I am calling on God and His angels to help fight for my life without stress so that I may continue to do His will and help His people.

I for the first time in a while I feel free and no longer desire to hold onto a false or inordinate sense of pride. Sometimes I am flying high like a bird in the sky free from harm and danger; and other times, I am hanging onto a piece of thread with a banana peel under my feet. But with God all things are possible. In fact God destroyed the impossible when He created the universe.
(Me at 6 year old, worry free as little girls should be)
So my friends, have no fear about things made known to you and I. It may seem bad at first, but when we reflect on God and Him having our back everytime we were in trouble, we put fear, worry, doubt, stress all behind us. You become focused and ready to fight. Someone wants to sit on the "Throne of your Dome". Who will win God or your weaker devil self?
If it is Almighty God's Will, your donation will secure me until I am able to get back to work full time. To God Be the Glory. Amen. Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving whatever you're able to GIVE TIL IT HELPS!!!

I am so fearless right now. You never know if you are afraid until you are tried. Let's keep up prayer and thanks in advance for being apart of my healing and giving me the GIFT OF LONGER LIFE!!!
PS: There will be other ways you may be able to help me. I will keep you posted. However, at this time I need financial assistance so that once I decide on my course of treatment, within the next few weeks, I can act immediately. I will keep you up-to-date with my progress and healing. Thanks again for all that you can and will do.
