Raven was diagnosed with stage 2 and a half cervical cancer in the summer of 2016. The doctors acted agressively and had her on radiation 5 days a week and chemotherapy once a week for about 2 months. By the month of August in 2016 she had fought her cancer and was back at it! In late August of 2017 she was diagnosed with stage 2 cervical cancer again and has a tumor on the right side of her pelvic area. She was told she had the maximum amount of radiation done last year and was inelgible for it this year. So she started chemotherapy once a month. By November of 2016 she was at stage 4, and it had spread to her bone. In mid December of 2017 she was admitted into the hospital due to an infection she had caught. She was told during her week stay in the hospital that she would no longer be able to walk, which terribly devistated her, and was also told she was going to be sent home with hospice. Yesterday we were told that she has anywhere from hours to days left. This is all so heartbreaking, but most of all for her two boys.
Raven was absolutley in love with her boys and provided for them as if she was a millionare, even if she had to spend her last dollars to make them happy. She always encouraged her kids to always play sports and signed them up for basketball in the winter, football in the fall, and baseball in the spring by the age of 5! This go fundme is for her children. Raven is 34 YEARS OLD, and obviously had no idea any of this was going to happen, which means she did not invest in a life insurance plan, a will, nor a savings account for her children.
Her oldest son, Daion, is 15 years old, a sophomore at Sheldon High, who has been chosen to play on the Varsity baseball team this Spring has a solid 3.0 GPA. Even with all of this going on in the last 2 years he has been determined and mainatined a 3.0 GPA just for his mom! He also, just got his driving permit last week! He is a spitting image of his mother, literally, and expresses his love for her dearly! Her youngest, Zayvion, will be 11 years old in Feburary, is a 5th grader at Ethel I. Baker and plays Popwarner football in the Fall and Little League Baseball in the Spring. Zayvion's heart is made with pure gold! He constantly asks everyone of us if we are okay, when he sees one of us crying, he walks up to them, wraps his arms around you and tells you "everything is going to be okay." without a tear in his eye and so much reassurance. With Zayvion, being the youngest, he has been extemely strong through all of this, just as his mom would have wanted him to be. Both of her children are being so strong for her and with her during this terribly difficult time. ALL PROCEEDS will go to her boys and any expenses
