Ameena Matthews  CHICAGO, IL
Salaams- I am appealing to all my friends and family PLEASE help save the life of my mentor, sister and friend Ameena Matthews. Not to long ago Ameena was diagnosed with Multiple Myoloma. She has determinedly fought the disease with the help of Allah, her guides Shaykh Nazim and her husband Shaykh Abdur Rashied, her children, her grandmother, and her Spiritual family Al-Hafeez.It is is important to help get our sista, mother, and friend back on the front lines. Ameena has been one of the main the faces and fighting forces behind Ceasefire/Cure Violence. The State of Illinois has  been unable to aid her with health coverage maintaining that she is not eligible. She is currently paying $1,600 a month for basic insurance with no income and has been told if she does not have a LIFE-SAVING Bone Marrow Transplant, she will depart this life in less than 30 Days. In addition to this $1,600 premium, Ameena was told that she has to pay an additional $600 to move forward with the life-saving procedure. She and her family are not monetarily capable of paying the full cost of this astronomical request. She is asking all of you that love and know her work and her giving to pay it forward and please give what you can to help our sister.
Help save the life of one of Allah Almighties soldiers,
Ameena. This is YOUR chance to help save the life of a woman who has helped save many lives!
May Allah reward you in this life and the next!

I live in the Washington, DC area and wouldn't mind being swabbed to help save Ameena's life. If someone can get to me to swab me, I am willing. My number is 202/680-4794.

I've organized a Bone Marrow Donor drive before, and THIS is what she needs more than money- a match is one-in-a-million shot! (Or has a match been found??) I'd be happy to help any way I can if you'd like to organize a one day ALL OUT donor drive. It's literally a cotton swab in the mouth to see if you'd match her (but then the procedure- if you match- is a little more in depth.)

I have MM stage 4 and was in a coma.....I'm confused as to why they haven't done valcade treatment to get her numbers down. My Dr. Is at John Hopkins he's an expert in this cancer and the transplant was the last stage and I won't do that til I'm 40....I'm on remission now...but to be "cured" I need the transplant. I've been living w/ this since '08

May he remove all agents from your entire body that causes your health conditions to waver. I will request for the Masjid here in Kansas City, Mo. To offer due ah on your behalf and your family. Surely Allah has the last say so in all affairs. Get well Ameena. As-Salaam-Mu-Alaikum. Please extend my greetings to your husband.

As-Salaam-Alaikum my dear sister. My wife and I saw when you received the Girls roc award. The way you conducted yourself was very inspiring. I was so very proud to see the way you conducted yourself as a Muslim woman. The acknowledgement you provided to your husband on national television showed pure love. You rendered the universal greeting to the audience. Surely Allah was a witness to opening in his name. You showed no fear. You were Amazing. My wife and I felt blessed because, it is the extensive hard work you have put forward that had allowed me to journey the mission of violenceprevention with Aim4Peace.
