Friends of Dishna Medonza are uniting to help with her battle against breast cancer. Please help us by donating any small amount you can.

Dishna is a 34 year old mom who lives in Sri Lanka, a small island in the Indian Ocean. She has three young children- two daughters who are seven and one and a son who is 3 years old. Despite the odds, after having breast fed all of her three children for the past 6 years, she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer a few months ago. She underwent surgery and has been receiving chemotherapy since then but the cancer is now spreading into her spine. It is now beyond what doctors in Sri Lanka can do for her. Her family took her to Singapore a few weeks ago and was told by doctors at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital there that she still has hope and can be treated. However, this requires funds. Every three weeks, Dishna has to fly from Sri Lanka to Singapore to receive four days of treatment. Being a dedicated mother, she returns after each episode of treatment to spend every minute of her time with her children. Then she goes again to Singapore for treatment. This cycle has to repeat every three weeks and each treatment costs approximately $9,000 with airfare. Dishna and her family had enough funds for a few of these trips but they are now running out of funds and Dishna still needs treatment. Our goal is to raise funds for at least one episode of treatment, even though we started with an initial goal of $3,000. Please donate any small amount you can so she can receive the treatment she needs and live to take care of her young ones. Every cent you can spare will help her live one more day! Thank you for your support! Yoshi and Chris
