Izzy Cox Cancer Fund

$12,879 of $10k goal

Raised by 189 people in 8 months
Izzy Cox has pancreatic cancer stage 2.

Izzy is an accomplished extremely talented hardworking singer songwriter artist based out of Austin Texas. Taking the past difficult challenges of her life and growing up, she transforms all those experiences and depth into her heartfelt original songwriting and artwork.   She would work hard all day at her day job cleaning big houses and then run to play live shows.  This past June alone she played 15 live shows with her backing band The Ghosts.  However as many of us know, she has been playing shows for all of us for so many years, locally and as well touring all over. 

If we all gather our stones  and add them together we can make a big splash,  so no matter what amount you can donate it will be extremely helpful.

This fund is being set up is to cover living expenses during the treatment process,  Meds and Copays, as well as some potential supplemental non-traditional therapies; nutritional, herbal, spiritual etc.    The medical treatment involves chemotherapy treatment and surgeries.  

Izzy has already undergone two surgeries and is currently in the hospital. The chemo will have varying degrees of 3 day treatments then followed by the immediate side effects for many days, followed by about a week to let the body gather strength for the next cycle. The estimation is that this will take from 4 to 6 months.  More surgeries are also on the horizon. 

Thank you so much to you all for your caring, empathy, prayers, meditations, thoughts, blessings and support.

*(This gofundme has been set up by her bassist band mate, Pete.  Many of you know me and know that I am a retired city firefighter, so there will be absolute integrity and clarity with these funds)

Ok folks, Big News!!!!!

In a couple weeks, don't know the date exactly yet,
I will go under major surgery, they are gonna cut out part of the pancreas where the tumor is, gallbladder, part of the stomach and repair the main artery, I will be in the hospital 2-3 weeks, then 4-6 weeks recovery time, then chemo, and radiation for three months, then I should be cancer free!!

Back to playing and me and the ghosts will put out a Grammy winning album lol -just joking, but put out a kick ass record and bring the music back to the people.

I want to thank all the folks who made sure I'am not homeless during this horrific health stuff. Seriously I would be living in my car if not for all the people who truly care. Thank you with all my soul. Thank you :) xo <3 Izzy

Passing the 50% mark is truly amazing! Thank you ALL so much for all the support. Not being able to work Izzy was very concerned about being able to just pay rent and even have a place to live. Because of all your kindness and generosity this worry and bourdon has been lifted. Having cancer is an enough worry, imagine also worrying about also being homeless. Because of everyone coming together you have already effected a great positive change!

The Chemotherapy started 2 days ago and was a real shock to the body's systems. Part of the treatment side effects is a compromised and diminished immune system, that just means that the body is very susceptible to all types of infections. The hospital release date is still unknown but there is a possibility to be released durning the body recovery time between these aggressive treatments.

Your donations are already taking effect! Not only will Izzy be able just have a place to live, she has found room mate and a place to move to that will have her own bathroom. This is necessary (and doctor recommended) for several reasons; the bathroom needs to be very clean due to the infection risks and best if only one person would use it, and the side effects can produce a need to have a bathroom always available.

The battle is just starting, however reaching this 50% goal mark is just amazing. I know it just warms Izzy's heart and has made such an improvement to her morale! A thousand thank-yous is not enough to each and every one of you that compassionately donated. Thank you deeply and sincerely .
