More Info

On July 8th, Cassandra, Dylan and their now 5-year-old son Wesley welcomed beautiful baby Elliott to their family.

After losing her job due to a difficult pregnancy, where Cassandra lost her hair to Alopecia and suffered from terrible nausea and eczema, they were finally relieved to have their family complete and a path forward for Cassandra to feel better.

Recently, Cassandra started a new job with UF Innovate. This brought them some much needed financial relief.

But, on September 3rd, Cassandra noticed a lump above her collarbone. She shared a picture of it with a friend who suggested she get it checked out immediately. She drove herself to the ER the next morning while Dylan stayed home with the kids.

After an X-ray and CT scan, the doctors found a mass in Cassandra’s chest. They believed she might have Lymphoma. She was then transported via ambulance to Shands Cancer Hospital where she would stay for four days.

The team of doctors working with her believed she may have stage 2 Lymphoma, but further testing would be needed.

After several painful weeks and more tests, Cassandra and her family learned that

 she has stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma.

 That means that she has cancer and it has spread.

Her doctor told her that stage 4 can be cured, but she is “going to go through hell” as she goes through treatment and “will have to fight for her life.” She was also advised to leave her new job as soon as possible. 

Cassandra and her family need our help.

 We need to help them fight this cancer so she can be there for her babies and watch them grow. Because of the treatment, she will not have her income as they go through this journey. We need to come together and support them with love and resources.

We are seeking donations in any amount you can to help Cassandra fight cancer. Your donations will be used immediately to cover:

-General bills

-Childcare (daycare, babysitting)

-Groceries and food delivery

-Medical costs

If you can not donate money, please consider other ways you can help.

-Walking their dog

- Bringing over meals

- Babysitting

- Spending time together, playing music for her

- Asking people in your life to donate

Cassandra, Dylan and their boys need our help. Please give what you can❤️
