This Mom, a Recent Quadruple Amputee, Is Now Fighting to Survive

In June 2016, Ilysa Winick contracted a rare blood disease that caused her body to go into septic shock, shutting down her vital organs. Now, she needs your help.

I’ve learned so much this year. My journey began in December 2015, when I decided to call myself a #FutureCancerSurvivor. I’m now almost done with treatment (though it really never ends) and can call myself a survivor. I recently wrote that though it was my worst year, it was also #myBrEaSTyear. I’ve learned throughout my journey from so many of you. Your openness inspired me. Your own challenges taught me. Your survivor stories makes me want to keep hearing and sharing more. Your stories of survivorship will help others survive.
