Telicia's Fighting Leukemia

5 years ago, Telicia found out she had Leukemia.  Treatment was not successful in Little Rock, so she was referred to MD Anderson in Houston. She was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia with 80% blast.  She lived in Houston for 200 days to do chemo that would put her in remission, so she could get a stem cell transplant.  Her dad quit his job to live with her during that time. The transplant was successful, but she found out last week that the cancer has returned.  Her doctors told her to head back down to MD Anderson this week where she will check in and begin chemo.  Her expected stay there in a minimum of 4 months.  She will have to start chemo to get in remission and begin the stem cell transplant process again.  She must have a 24/7 caregiver (her dad) while she is there, and she must live within 30 minutes of the hospital.  They were able to get a camper from a dear friend, so they will be staying at an RV park near the hospital.  The monthly expenses for this are still a lot when Telicia leaves behind a mortgage, medical bills and monthly bills.  Telicia does not qualify for paid leave from work.  She received some paid leave 5 years ago, and she is not able to apply for that again.  I made this Go Fund Me to help Telicia raise some money for the bills she will accrue while she is at MD Anderson fighting her Leukemia.  She needs to be able to focus on healing and not worry about anything back home.  She is an incredible person, and she is always there to help everyone else when they need it.  Please consider giving to Telicia during these crucial times.  We know the Lord is going to help her fight through this, and every little bit donated will help.  Please keep Telicia and her family in your prayers.
