Katelyn's Cancer & Funeral Fund
My name is Amber and I'm here to tell ou about Joana (Jo). Jo became a friend of my moms back in 2006/2007 and helped my mother in a time of need (which I am forever greatful for) and has been a good friend of hers ever since. I am now trying to help her in a time of need. She is a single mom of four young children: Genesis (10), Katelyn (5), Joseph (1), & Luna (1 month). Very recently, she found out her young daughter Katelyn has stage 4 Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma brain cancer.
Having just recently moved into a new home with no stove or fridgerator, giving birth to her fourth child just weeks ago, being a single mother to these babies and now to find out her baby girl has stage 4 brain cancer. I can't even imaine what she is going through.
Her daughter Katelyn is currently being treated at the Children's Hosiptol in Los Angeles and will be undegoing chemotheropy. With this being a newer found cancer, their isn't a lot of treatment and research information on it. As a single mother with four children and limited income and state healthcare, she could use ALL of the help and prayers she can get.
Any money donated will go straight to Katelyn's medical treatments at the children's hospital and to helping her mother care for her other children and keeping a roof over their head. Thank you everyone for your time, support, prayers, and love!
As Katelyns mommy right this moment my tummy feels sick as if I ate something my body doesn’t agree with and all it wants to do is throw it back up. A mixture of butterflies and worst stomach ache ever To know I will in the next 48 hours lay my baby to rest and never see her cute little nose or touch her cheeks and my most favorite cares her hair wild curly hair is some how unreal.
The reality was foreseen yet so much believe that gods purpose is so much more grand then what I can ever imagine. Some how I find so much comfort in gods words. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”
The mind blowing part is I would always see “John 3:16” but never cared to read it’s text or find out what the verse said. Until now! Im in complete gratitude to god for allowing so much pain and anguish to his only son Jesus because I know that Katelyn is right this moment in a place where time doesn’t exist and pain is not even a word. I’ve always believe that god is love and love is god And patients is key to forming a loving child. As much pain and anguish I felt along with Katelyn in her last moments of life, I also felt and seen gods presence. The Holy Spirit played a massive roll in my life and continues to rain so many gifts my way. Maybe no one will ever understand the joy I feel or see how much gratitude lives in my heart. But who’s there to understand or accept you fully? Only god! His graces and hand lives alive in me and I’m so humble to share such peace and joy. It’s hard won’t lie, it hurts so bad but in the end once Im layer to rest my sweet kandee will welcome me with that same joy i did during the 6 years of life she was given here in earth.
“Thank you my wild child for allowing me to love you unconditionally and for cementing my faith so strongly. Through you I learned to live through Jesus eyes”
