Young Mom Battles Brain Cancer

Hello everyone, my name is Jessica and I would like to tell you about my very first best friend who could really use your help. Ashley is a 26-year-old single mother of a beautiful one-year-old girl, Natalie Ann. Shortly after Natalie's first birthday, Ashley suffered a seizure which led to the discovery of a tumor in the frontal lobe of her brain. Within a few days, Ashley underwent surgery to remove as much of the tumor as possible. Due to the location of the tumor, only about 70% was successfully able to be removed. Shortly thereafter, a biopsy revealed a devastating diagnosis. The tumor was determined to be a Stage IV Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most aggressive type of cancer that can begin within the brain. There is no cure for GBM. In order to slow the growth of the tumor and maximize Ashley's time with her daughter, she is set to begin chemo and radiation this week.
Ashley has always given of herself, family being her number one priority since childhood. Recently, she set aside her career to help care for her mother who suffers from a form of muscular dystrophy.  Having Natalie has brought a light to their lives that had been missing for so long. Everyone who knows Ashley knew that she would be a great mother, but since the day Natalie Ann was born, there has been a light in Ashley's eyes that I've never seen before.  She was  meant to be this little girls mommy and all Ashley wants to do right now is spend as much time as possible with her baby girl.

I'm asking anyone and everyone to please consider donating whatever you can to help this family focus on what's most important, not wondering how they're going to afford the next medical bill that comes their way. No donation is too small, and every cent will be going directly to Ashley and her family. If you can't afford a donation right now, please consider sharing this campaign to gain as much support as humanly possible.

It's going to take more than a village. It's going to take an army. So let's rally the troops and stand beside Ashley as she begins treatment this week.

And to everyone reading, sharing, and donating....Thank You.
You are making a difference.
