Help Angelique Beat Cancer!!

$32,890 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 250 people in 41 months
I am raising money for my daughter, Angelique. My daughter is my life; she means the world to me. Recently she has been diagnosed with tongue and throat cancer (details below) and will need surgery and radiation. I can't think of a sweeter, kinder, more caring young lady than my daughter, and it breaks my heart that she is so sick. 

This money is going to be used for copayments, miscellaneous care expenses and, of course, the extremely high costs of hospitalization. Currently, my daughter works as a waitress at Cheesecake Factory and has her own place, two dogs, and average personal expenses. I work as an administrative assistant and covering her medical costs will be very difficult. I am a single parent of two lovely daughters and I do not have any additional financial assistance. 

Surgery is April the 14th of 2016. It is an 8-12 hour procedure, and she will remain in intensive care for one week. The doctors will remove the cancer, including half of her tongue, and she will have reconstructive surgery to rebuild her mouth and tongue with skin grafts. She will receive six weeks of radiation treatment following her release from the hospital. The prognosis is for a long but nearly full recovery.  We are currently in touch with support groups for emotional and mental support during the recovery, but this will be for naught if we cannot afford her care.

This campaign will save her life and I will be forever grateful. I cannot imagine this world without my beloved baby girl, and all of you would be contributing more than just money. Your help and prayers will provide peace of mind, love, care, and keep our family together. I am praying for her every day. Thank you all and God bless you.

Good Day Family & Friends!
It's been a little while since I've updated you all regarding Angelique. As you can see she is doing very well. Feeding tube was removed in the middle of November and with medical clearance she finally got to travel with me to North Carolina for Thanksgiving. She still has a long road ahead with different types of therapy sessions for a she a full recovery but thanks to you all for your support and prayers throughout this whole ordeal she's coming along beautifully. Always continue to pray, not just for her but for those who are sick.
Angelique and I want to wish you ALL a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! God Bless you all for being in our lives. We love you!

Hi folks, just wanted to update you regarding Angelique's status as she becomes stronger and beautiful everyday. With the strength of family and friends she continues to strive and get stronger! Faith and prayers have been number one in our lives and hope that you continue your prayers. She's in full throttle with Physical & Speech therapy and doing awesome.

Thank you all again from the bottom of our hearts for all your contributions, faith, prayers and love. Angelique & Pebbles

From Angelique,

Good afternoon facebook people! I just wanted to give you all an update on my current condition.
I just saw my doctor. I recently had a cat scan done, which I will be doing every 3 months to make sure cancer is gone and never ever coming back! Hit the road Jack!
Well, the Dr. said I have an irritated superficial ulcer on my tongue which doesn't concern him that much but he will keep an eye on it. It irritates me so much! It stings sometimes when i drink. (I think I want to try and have pureed soups and fruits soon). Anyways, he felt the irritated sore and said it wasn't hard like the one I had that was cancerous, so he said try not to worry. On top of that, he felt the lumps on my neck that I was concerned about 2 weeks ago which is why we did the cat scan ASAP. He said they are smaller now, and he thinks they were just Lymph nodes swollen as a reaction to radiation, but we will do an ultrasound needle biopsy anyways just to make sure, even though those biopsies may have to be repeated? (That sucks and isn't as assuring, but what do I know? I leave it all to God).
Overall health wise he says he doesn't think it's anything. He says in his clinical opinion he thinks I'm fine, but because I had cancer and for some reason these cancers seem to be more aggressive in younger patients, he rather give me anxiety and go through all this just to make sure that we are clear.
So....that's what's up with me! Prayers needed! Always and everyday! Love you so much! Please come over soon! Or call! Or text! Or write a letter like we used to do in our school days. That was fun. I miss being young. I want to hear from you! Going through withdrawals to just see some caring faces! God Bless you all!
Pray. Believe. Have faith! Spread love! Be positive! Smile! Live! Laugh! And God Bless. Amen!
Always smiling, God is good!

My sweet and precious niece, you are every single day in my prayers. Thank the Lord that you have overcome the first hurdle of this horrible illness. Be of good cheer my Angel, you will and have beat this. God's gracious healing power will continue to fight this battle. Know that it has already been won because your God is in control and has given you the victory! He will give you the first jewel in your crown as you glorify His name through your walk with Him hand in hand. Continue to believe it as He promised in His Word through Jesus His son. I love Baby Girl! Know that this Titi is rooting for you through the long run. See you soon.
