Hi everyone, I'm fundraising for Iyana Mckinley (aka YaYa). She just made 17 years old on the 4th of July and is entering her Senior year of High School. She was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia on July 23rd 2020. This has been a hard year for her as she was hospitalized last year for 2 weeks for a sickness they could not diagnose which was probably the leukemia but just wasn't showing up in her blood yet. She has been in pain since April and just now found out why in July. She has had some complications since being in the hospital such as steroids causing diabetes (taking insulin 4 times a day) and had a procedure that messed up her vocal cords and hasn't been able to talk or drink correctly. As if COVID wasn't making things hard enough, leukemia gets thrown into the mix. But Iyana is strong and is a fighter. We will beat this and make the best out of the situation given. They are planning that this will be a 2 year journey for her. These funds will be used for gas, parking at the hospital, other expenses while in the hospital and when she is released having to drive back to the hospital every week for chemo, prescriptions and other medical expenses not covered by insurance. On top of this her mother is having to reduce her hours at work making it even more difficult. We cannot express our gratitude for the donations, thoughts, prayers and reaching out showing support during this difficult time. We really do appreciate it and it means the world to us. ***You can also make donations thru: cashapp - $ArianaD00 https://www.paypal.me/ArianaDilts281
