Widowed mother of 2 battles cancer

$19,717 of $25,000 goal

Raised by 294 people in 13 months
Latest update: Amy has just completed her fourth round of chemo, with the next 6 months being a crucial time for her. The doctors have told us that her cancer has reacted well to the chemo but unfortunately her body has suffered. She has had two very serious infections, a throat infection and a chest infection that she has only just finished antibiotic infusions for. Fortunately her mother has been able to take the remainder of the year off of work to stay with Amy, who likely will need support for at least another 6 months. If the cancer does return within 6months we have been told to expect the worse as it will  come back with a vengeance but if her blood counts do continue to rise Amy will be headed for remission. Her and the boys are so grateful for all of the donations so far, they can't imagine how they would have survived without it. 


From my heart to yours, I am looking to the community to help support a dear friend and beautiful mother Amy who has been diagnosed with Luekemia a cancer of the blood. 

Amy is 25. A widowed mother of 15 month old twin boys Cash and Cruz. Amy's love of her life commited suicide in 2016, leaving her to raise her two children independently. With limited supports, Amy has shown courage, determination and true strength as a sole parent.

Unfortunately in the month of April 2017 Amy was given the devastating news that she has Luekemia and will need to undergo chemotherapy. Amy has spent every day hospitalised since being diagnosed and has a long road to recovery. 

It would be a wonderful thing if as a community we could come together to give some light into the life of Amy and her boys. Every donation counts and will assist in the cost of medical bills,  a good quality wig to help boost Amy's confidence and most importantly to help support her young twins who have a fulfilling life to live.

Hello everyone, I am Karla- one of Amys other close friends and I will be taking over the management of her go fund me account from Cassie for the next phase of her battle.
She is now back in hospital completing her second round chemo which the doctors have explained will involve the same drug she had last time but at 30 times higher than her original dosage. We have heard she isn't feeling great but of course she is still in the highest of spirits and she definitely has not lost her sense of humor.
Also Amy has finally agreed to let us increase the amount of her gofundme goal. We have done this because after speaking to her doctors we understand Amy is going to be sick for longer than we originally had expected. This is already a huge amount of money for Amy so she was quite hesitant to increase the goal amount, she is a very selfless person and she often disregards her own needs so as to not burden anyone else. She has struggled for a long time but we won't let her do that while she is sick.
She is so so grateful for all of the love and prayers she has received. It has been a very bright light during this dark time. I will try to keep everyone up to date on her progress. Thank you all again!
Mums bald now and it's hilarious!

Hey everyone it is Amy here, I know it sounds cliché but I am so overwhelmed by everyone's generosity. This is a huge amount of money for me and I really appreciate every single dollar donated. As we are very close to the target I would like to let everyone know that if it is exceeded I will be donating it towards other people who have been affected by cancer and the cancer council. I know they say that the patient is the one who is "battling cancer" but I think it really is the scientists, doctors and nurses who are the ones really fighting. So if I can put some money towards my army I will be super happy.

Just an update on amys current situation she started chemotherapy on Tuesday the 2nd may an to be expected her health is declining quite rapidly. Hair loss has began and the horrible disease is really starting to take its toll. Amy has been overwhelmed by the amount of love an the support she has recieved at this horrible time in her life it really is heartwarming to see so much support out there in the community. Unfortunately at the moment the twins are sick an are therefore unable to visit amy which is very upsetting for her an the hardest thing out of all this is her not being able to see her little dudes. Will keep everyone posted with regular updates. Thankyou for the ongoing support it is very much appreicated.
Amy and her beautiful boys

Amy, you're a superstar! Donating the excess is a massive thing to do which truly shows that you have a heart of gold. I read your story in the advertiser today and I was a blu bbering mess at the end of it. You've endured so much in your short life, yet you continue to fight with every beat of your heart. Raising twins is hard work, I know. My twin girls are now 15. You will be able to look back on this in 10 years time and think 'yep, just another hurdle'... Sending love, light & prayers to you and your gorgeous boys. Thankyou for the update! - Teash.
