$10,870 of $10,000 goal
Hi, my name is Ashley Mercado, I am one of Tonya's many cousins who love her so much. I have looked up to this strong, beautiful, caring woman my whole life, and I have always admired her. My family is raising money for Tonya Kneller and her family to help lift the burden of medical bills and daily costs during this difficult time.
Tonya has been recently diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma, and is staying strong and fighting hard! Anyone who has the pleasure of meeting Tonya knows how special she truly is. She has a heart of gold, and has a smile that lights up any room! We are ever so thankful for you to take the time to donate to Tonya's cause, and let her know how many people are here for her, and will FIGHT this WITH HER!
No One Fights Alone! Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.
This is Tim, Tonya's husband.
I just want to share how overwhelmed we've been by all your support and love.
These past few weeks have been the most trying of our lives. It still sometimes doesn't feel real, but we are ready to fight this and win. Tonya WILL be back with you all soon; her family, friends, students, and everyone she loves so dearly.
We have a road ahead of us, and I don't know the twists and turns it will bring, but it heartens me knowing all the love and support for Tonya.
Tonya continues to make progress. We are hopeful she can leave the hospital this weekend. From there she is likely headed to a rehab facility for several days so that she can regain her strength before going home. Her treatments will be on-going through May as we kill the hell out of this cancer--without mercy.
Someday I'll be able to thank you all in person. But for now, know how very much we love you all.
My daughter is doing better, she is sitting up and walking now. She looks so much better, but really had a really rough road. The pain is a lot better because the chemo is killing the cells, that were pushing on her spine. Still some things to take care of, but things are looking up. Thanks for all the love and prayers sent. ❤️
