Sky's 2nd fight for life

About Me Hey y'all! My name is Skyler Phillips, I am a 28 year old, 2 time stage IV cancer survivor; born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I am a single father to a beautiful 6 year old princess, named Bryleigh Kaye. I was first diagnosed in 2015 with testicular cancer, and rhabdomyosarcoma. After 2 surgeries, 16 rounds of chemo, and 10 rounds of radiation, over a year and 7 months; I had beaten cancer after being told I wouldnt make it, and had days to live. I joined trade school here in Dallas to become an electrician; I started both in January of '17. In February of 2018, the sarcoma returned; growing from just a couple of centimeters,m to almost a 1 foot, in just a month. Another surgery was done, as well as another 8 rounds of chemotherapy. I was proud to be a 2 time stage IV cancer survivor in December of 2018! March, 2019, i was diagnosed for the 3rd time, unable to continue treatments in Dallas, had to visit MD Anderson in Houston Texas. Where i currently receive treatments and care. Here we are, January of 2020, still fighting my 3rd rhabdomyosarcoma diagnosis; with as long as a fight as ever! With your help, I will be forever thankful, and be able to say; that I am a three-time stage IV cancer survivor.  I am a humble, hard working man, but my family and I cannot do this alone; I hope you find it in your heart; to PRAY, share this post, and donate if you can, anything and everything helps, please, and thank you! Any and all donations will be helping myself fill the dozens of prescriptions, which range from: - nausea and pain medicine - vitamins and supplements - after chemo medicine and injections, as well as several kidney and stomach protectants, from chemo. Also my strict  diet, my oncology team will have me on yet another low sugar, low fat, no processed food, no red meat, heavy greens and fruit plan. If I could have three wishes, they'd be that you could: Please Pray, Please Share and Donate. With enough of those three, I will have the means to beat it financially, the strength to beat it physically, and the hope to beat it mentally. We are all connected and affected by this dreadful disease, whether it be you, or a family member. Anyone having gone through it will tell you, it's no easy task, and I wouldnt wish this on my worst enemy. I started this GoFundMe because of all of the heavy expenses that come with this type of tragedy; and the last thing anyone fighting for their life should worry about is, "how am I going to pay my rent this month" Thank you for taking time to read my story! I pray you continue to have a happy 2020! Stay blessed!
