Anthony: I don’t like seeing my daughters picture on this link.

Anthony studies 5AM

Ugh, this is really tough for me.
15 years ago ago, Anthony Washington came to the UW as the great hope for Husky Basketball. Encouraged by coaches, he was poorly prepared for anything else. The his heel bone broke. Life went down hill. The heel heeled enough for a few years of semi pro ball, but then real life intervened. Ant came back to the UW where he was able to get back into school and finish a degree with a 4.0. And then this,

Still trying to accept the fact that she has leukemia.

I really feel like a horrible father. As a father, you try your best to be in a position to give your kids whatever it is they may need, no matter what it is. My daughter being diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia the same day I had surgery to repair a torn muscle in my quad/knee kills me.
My sister started a gofundme account for my daughter. While I wish I could provide my daughter with everything she will need, I am not able to, especially not at this moment. I won’t even be able to walk without crutches for another 3-4 weeks.
Anyone that has already donated, thank you very much. My family appreciates the support.

God bless

Gennette Cordova: Recently, after about a week of her dealing with fevers and chest infections, Eniyah  was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia–cancer of her white blood cells.                                This diagnosis means, among other things, that, at least for the next year, Eniyah will have to be out of school, spending most of her time in the eniyah-and-gennettehospital while she undergoes chemotherapy. She’ll constantly be plagued by the side effects of these treatments–hair loss, nausea and vomiting, increased risk of infections, fatigue.                                                                                                                 The next year will be extremely difficult for Eniyah, her parents, her siblings and the rest of her family. As her parents will need to step away from their jobs and dedicate their time to Eniyah’s care, the family is asking for contributions to help lighten the financial burden that will compound in the coming months. Donations will be used to cover a wide range of items from the larger expenses like transportation and treatment costs to all of the various, smaller expenses (many of which we won’t know we need to cover until we encounter them) like scarves and special brushes with soft bristles, when she starts losing her hair. Some upsides here are 1)

Eniyah is naturally tough and optimistic and, thanks to modern medicine, ALL is manageable, as long as the child is receiving optimal treatment and care.
