The family of Kisha Baylor are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against Lung Cancer.

Kisha Baylor was diagnosed with lung cancer 3 years ago. After rigorous chemo and radiation treatments, she had to be put into an induced coma to help rebuild her other lung that had collapsed due to infection. Early on, She had to get fluid drained constantly from her lung and later on from her abdomen caused by cancerous tumors. Although the treatments depleted much of her energy, She always kept a strong will to spend time with her loved ones. Specifically with her son, Quadre, making sure to attend his football practices and games as much as she could.

Six months ago, she discovered the cancer had spread into her hip and back bone, causing even more major pain. As many of you know, there is no cure for lung cancer. Despite the strong effort in staying positive and prayerful, Kisha has been told that the end is near. She has to decided to go home, away from all the doctors, medicines, and sullen hallways to be around the love of her family & friends, to hear the laughter and to find peace.

She was not able to work for the past 2.5 years due to being involved in a company layoff and due to the frequency of recurrances and treatment needed to fight this. Her boyfriend, David, has had to take a leave of absence to be with her 24 hours a day to give her the love, support and aid that she required. Kisha does not have any medical or life insurance and this 3 year battle has drained their family both mentally and financially.

We can't change this disease, but we can change how they fight it! Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.
