Young Mom with Stage 5 Glioblastoma

Ashley is 25 years young with 2 small children - Isla (2) Gracie (1). Ashley lives in Peterborough with her 2 girls, husband & pets (of all shapes and sizes). 

A couple of weeks ago, Ashley found out that she had a brain tumour. She was airlifted from Peterborough to Kingston, where she had surgery to remove the tumor. Surgery went well & Ashley was sent home to her beautiful babies and husband. Unfortunately, Ashley's follow up appointment revealed that she has aggressive stage 5 Glioblastoma  (Brain Cancer). Ashley needs to start chemotherapy & radiation immediately - which means lots of travelling to Kingston & not being home to take care of her girls. 

I started this fundraiser to help alleviate some of the financial difficulties faced by Ashley & her family during this difficult time. The money raised will help Ashley pay for travel expenses to get to treatment, medications, child care, lost wages and anything else they may need at this time. 

Any donations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
