Ok, those of u that know know me, know, this is by far one of the hardest things I have ever had to do in my 33 years of living.
Here it goes.......
My name is Alisha Alexander, and I have come to a battle in my journey of life that I have to fight for the sake of survival and if u are reading this, I am asking for your assistance in my plan to win.
A little over a month ago, I found a lump in my breast that will give me a new meaning to a lot of words, but the biggest one is the word LIFE. U never know just how much of ur life u (think) u really have control over, until u have no control over any of it. From the day I was diagnosed with breast cancer my control changed. The way I go to bed at night and the way I wake up is different, my daily routine, my household, my needs, my wants, my living expenses, my gas bill, mileage, definitely my medical bills, the way I eat, what I eat, the way I feel, the way I think, what I think, where I go, when I go.....everything....yes everything has changed. Nothing is constant and nothing is in my control. Nothing. I have been a single parent for majority of my adulthood, so “control” and "consistency" is something that has kept me and mine a float all of these years. At least I thought it did up until now. Making ends meet has never been new to me, but having to do it to "save my life" (literally, save my life) is a battle I never thought I would be in.. I am a strong believer, and I know My Father makes no mistakes, He has his reasoning, so I know this too shall definitely pass. It takes a lot for me to open up and share my world…rather alone ask anyone for help. But again, nothing is in my control, so here I am.
I say all of this to say, I don’t have all of the answers about my illness, or my treatment plan, everything changes so fast and so much, so I would be lying if I told u I know everything, right now. What I do know is that my income has remained the same while my expenses have risen tremendously already and it's only the beginning. Financially I can’t do it all by myself which is the reason for this donation page. Idk how much everything will be, Or when I will need who, or when I will need what.... I just know I need support in any way possible from many different avenues and I thank all of you for being here thus far.
Whatever blessing u can be to me is appreciated.. Whatever u feel necessary to give me, I am most definitely thankful for. This is all new to me, so forgive me for rambling. But I believe God has a plan. He has a way of making us fight battles for other people’s tests. Making us believers by the way of our loved ones. So as I prepare and fight my battle at hand, know, it may not be me that he is testing, He could be just using me for the fight.
I love each and every one of u for many different reasons, in many different ways, and If I have never told u before, "thank you." Thank u for just being wherever u have been, and whoever u are, whatever role u have played, good or not so good, in my journey of life up until now. U have made me who I am, and u have been a part of His preparation to strengthen me for my walk....and I Thank you !!
