Ivy's Leukemia Fund

$5,818 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 81 people in 40 months
My name is Ivy Coleman and I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on February 9th, 2016. This means that I started the new year fighting a battle for my life. My family and I are trying to raise funds for my medical bills that have already to begun to stack up. We are collecting funds to help with payments as treatments progress, so any donation at any time is greatly appreciated. I will be fighting this fight through chemotherapy and regular hospital visits for two whole years! Thank you so much, and any support will go a long way. I know that I will get through this with the love of my friends and family! ~Please read my updates for the latest information~

Just to update. I'm now finished with my chemotherapy treatment as of May 7th, 2018. Unsurprisingly, my medical bills have stacked up over these past two and a half years of treatment, though more than expected. I'm keeping this fund open if anyone ever feels generous enough to want to continue to donate and help me reach my goal. Hoping to start my new cancer-free life, and eventually college, it will be challenging to financially sustain myself alone with this hospital debt. However, after going through this experience, I know nothing will stop me from continuing to follow my dreams. Any help is very much appreciated but not at all expected. The support I've gotten from everyone over these last few years has been absolutely incredible and more than I thought I'd get. Most of all, I'm grateful to have come out of this beating my cancer which, sadly, not all get to do. Thank you to everyone who has donated. I can't give my thanks enough for how much you have helped me out. ❤️

~Please consider donating blood and platelets, if you can. You can also look into bethematch.org to possibly join the bone marrow registry. Both options will help save lives.

I am now officially in my maintenance cycle of chemotherapy which will also be my last! For this cycle, I got a Power Port placed in my chest for a longer term usage than my PICC lines . My maintenance is estimated to end in the Summer of 2018 so I still have a long road ahead of me but, as always, I'm up for the ride! However, because treatment is so long I'm still asking for any donations to help me pay for the medical bills/medications along the way. I will never stop saying thank you and being thankful for everyone who has already donated or supported me along this journey. Going through this has taught me to appreciate life and the people in mine in so many ways. I'm so grateful to have seen birthdays (including my own), Thanksgiving, and coming soon Christmas/New Years. Never take your life for granted. So if you decide to donate or share this to spread the word or if you already have, Thank You. ❤

To give an update on my condition/ treatment, I am in cycle 3 out of 5 of my chemotherapy treatment. Thankfully I do not have to get a Bone Marrow Transplant unless my leukemia decides to return after my chemotherapy has finished. Which is still a two year long battle. Thank you to everyone who has donated! The funds have helped me so much with my medical bills! I also had a very successful fundraiser thanks to some family friends that has helped with my funds as well! So thank you to everyone that came! I'm so grateful for the love and support I have received from everyone. It has really kept me strong! Please continue to spread the word for more donations. Every dollar counts! Thank you :)
